    What a great find. Simple room, good size, decorated with a bit of eccentricity. Excellent location in a cool part of town, and the owner gives excellent recommendations of places to go off the beaten track. Relaxed, personal service, and simple touches like an empty fridge you're free to stock make a difference. No frills but does what it does very well at an excellent price.

    Our host, Antonio, was very helpful and kind. He had prepared a sheet with useful telephone numbers, including taxis, local restaurants and tourist information. He has a library of guidebooks available for use, and his b&b is clean and comfortable. It's in a great location, near the Piazza Santo Spirito. I would not hesitate to recommend Althea Rooms to any traveler who is on a budget and wants to stay in a clean, safe, and accessible place.

    We liked the privacy, how it receives few tourists, the great location and the low price. The room we stayed at is very neat. Maura the hostess is very nice.

    Antonio, the owner, was extremely helpful and sweet. He sat down with us upon checking in and wrote down the names of several restaurants and attractions, as well as marking them on the free map that he provided. He even provided free alternatives to some of the charged attractions. The location was also great--it's right across the river from the major tourist centers, which makes it much quieter and all of the surrounding restaurants were much more reasonably priced. Still, essentially everything in the city (including the museums and churches) was within easy walking distance.

    My friend had no hot water every evening when she showered, but when I showered in the morning I didn't have a problem. The mattress was also rather hard, but workable.

    The staff was very helpful, it was very pleasant to have computer with Internet in the room.

    It was not very easy to find and reach the hotel by the car.

    I like that fact that it was well located and that the manager was really welcoming.

    I think the bed could have been more comfortable.

    The staff were charming, happy to share their local knowledge and very helpful. Located in Oltrano near the Pitti Palace, it represents excellent value for money. Computers in every room.

    They were very lovely and helpful, and recommended great local restaurants.

    The bathrooms smelled quite strongly of drains.

    The kindness and professionalism of staff was excellent, great location to walk in the center of the city.

    Very close to Florence touristic city centre, within walking distance in 15 minutes. Nice stay, hotel staff is helpful. Best thing is there is internet computer available within the room (but not sure same for all rooms). See additional comments in the other part...

    Not a negative comment, but for explanation: This is not a standart hotel, it is just apartment rooms for rent. Some rooms have private bathrooms, some not. Not perfect for large family stay. Apartment door is usually closed, and you need to ring the bell to get in. You need to contact with the reception if you will arrive late. There is no breakfast, but there are nice bars/cafes nearby to have breakfast. No parking available at the site, very narrow streets. Public parking available within walking distance and costs around 20 euros per day.

    A nice place with very clean and comfortable rooms. The owner and his staff is very helpful about all requests. Great location in a great area of Florence, and you can walk to everything. Very nice quality about the place, and you feel at home from the moment you arrive.

    Can be a bit noisy in the morning, but that must be expected since it is in a residential area with apartments and people all around. Makes it more real.

    Very friendly place and staff - one gets a room just like an apartment (own keys to house+apartment+room). There is a computer with internet conection.

    The beautiful flowers in the room on arrival and further beautiful flowers later in our stay. Two very nice bottles of wine. Close proximity to several artistic attractions of special interest to us. Regret - forgetting to express our appreciation to the room maid in a tangible way. If there is a way to rectify the maid problem - and if we were meant to pay for any or all of the flowers and wine - please let us know.

    It was like being at home. Own keys. Cozy room. Big bathroom. Always hot water available. Walking distance to all main attractions. Computer with free access to internet available.

    Noisy during night - Every 10-15 mins noisy car/scooter/girl with high heels passing by and waking us up. This went on the whole night (night between Saturday and Sunday). Computer did not work. No breakfast available.

    Very helpful and hospitable staff

    The ventilation of my room is not good and I can't enjoy the sunshine either because it faces inside the yard.
