Great time in Toscana
We stayed at the Hotel San Giovanni and used it as a base to sight see around Tuscany It was the perfect choice and three flight of stairs and dodgy WIFI apart really couldnt be faulted it is situated a stones throw from the main sights of Florence and is always bustling with life, wth a great selection of Bars and Cafes on the doorstep (Barone just aroud the corner being a fave of ours!!!) the only fault i can find with the rooms was the fact that it is used as a stop off for one night or short stays and people can be very inconsidrate when enrteing and moving around within the annex the communal kitchen area is great but not for rattling pots and pans or for sitting around having a small party as the four bedrooms that open onto this area get the full blast of any noise also one or two poeple during the week thought it ok to use this facility but not wash up after themselves that apart the staff and facilties of the San Giovanni are excellent

Give it a miss
The room was old, tiny, smelly and dirty and didn't look like the pictures - There's many other places of similar price, take one of these

Great value, great view
Very old building but right off main square. View was amazing. Spacious but sparsely furnished room. WiFi only in common area. Good value if you don’t mind less than luxury accommodations.

Exceptional 10.0
This hotel is at a perfect location right in front of the Duomo. And even though it’s noisy outside, once you close the wooden shutter, you do not hear anything. Humberto and Alessandro are awesome. One of the cleaning person is not so friendly. He seemed to be bothered my me asking him a question.

Property & service aren't as great as the location
I booked this room based purely on it's excellent location so was willing to overlook the following:there is no air conditioning-only one fan in our large room, no in room WIFI (wifi only available in the common area which was suffocatingly hot due to there being no A/C, no fridge in the room, no ice machine and a very shabby dirty looking bathroom. We stayed in room 4 which had a hole in the window patched with plexiglass & tape as well as a broken shutter and the shabby, dirty looking bathroom across the hall had a broken door as well. The elevator is only big enough for one person or your luggage but not both-you have to send your luggage up one piece at a time. Service wasn't great-we were made to feel that they just wanted our money, and speaking of money, we were asked to pay in cash via email confirmation prior to arrival and again at check in which I found very sketchy, unprofessional, and brazen.I felt pestered by the staff asking me to pay cash & pay in advance (needless to say I paid with credit card) and also felt pestered by the cleaning staff who hovered around outside of our room waiting for us to leave each day-so much so that we told them not to even bother cleaning on one of the days to get them to stop loitering in the hall outside of our room.

Watch out!!! NOT A HOTEL
It is a hostel, not a hotel and it's super old. The tilte pilled-off on the floor. Bathroom is shared, small and dirty. The drainer in the shower stall does not work.... disguisting! Everything in the room is very old. No AC. There is a tiny fan and not really efficiently working. Staf is friendly and it is located conveniently though

WiFi only in lobby. Bathroom too small....
Great location just next to the Duomo... WiFi only works in lobby and the corridor creaks loudly when someone walks by... the bathroom was too small. Tall or Big people in general wouldn’t fit in it. I am 6.2’ and there was a rod hitting my head in the shower stall which was barely my shoulder wide....
