    It was close to major attractions. The room was clean. However, the bathroom smelled consistently of chlorine.

    Great value for money.

    Through no fault of the Hotel Google Maps sent me to the wrong location. Once I did locate it the receptionist was very helpful and pleasant, as were all the staff I encountered behind the desk. Hotel Basilea is in a great location to explore many of Florences attractions. It was very reasonably priced and there was a fridge in the room which I found was not usually available at other places with similar tariffs. I would happily stay there again.

    Bugs

    This hotel needs a renovation, it is very old. If you are driving parking is very expensive not what it mentioned in Hotels.com. We had two rooms and in both rooms we found bed bugs, my brother in law had bites all over him. Will definitely not come back.
