Mary's House Reviews

Basic accommodation

Conveniently located near to the bus and train stations for easy getaway. Sleep quality not the best as my room was located opposite a noisy bar. The internal facing double rooms should be quieter. Room cleaned regularly and sheets changed, but would benefit from a more thorough clean, the accumulated dust and fluff of millennia under the bed.

Mary's House Reviews from the Web

Liked: Great location, very close to the main train station and less than a 10 minute walk from the duomo, which is great for the price. The couple who owns it is very nice and accommodating- they let me check in late when my train got in late. It felt very safe, and as a woman traveling by myself, this was very important. I stayed in a single room and the bed was bigger than expected, very comfortable, and the room and bathroom were very clean. There was a sink in the room which was nice. Highly recommended!! Didn't like: Sometimes i could hear some noise from outside- but this is unavoidable in a city. Just a warning- if you are looking for a party hostel this is not it. This is a quiet peaceful guest house, which is something i liked about it, but if you are looking to meet other people it probably won't happen here.


Helpful owners. Clean


Liked: Logistically perfect location for siteseeing, you get a simple but clear place to stay. (no extra services, but loundry is 2 minutes walk, mercato 8-10 minutes walk, rent-a-car offices 5 minutes walk, train station 5 minutes walk, etc.) Didn't like: -(Sleeping just with earbug, because of a noisy bar close to the hostel. I was prepared for that from other comments, so it was't surprise.)


Liked: great location near to station, centre, restaurants nearby, tv and minibar in the room, microwave and guide books in the corridor, room was really clean Didn't like: the profume in the room was for me a little strange, but it was ok after opening the windows


Liked: Really good and not expensive Didn't like: Poor wifi

Liked: Safe and secure. Close to the train station. Easy walking distance to main attractions of Florence. Friendly and very helpful reception. Didn't like: No real criticisms of the hostel.


Liked: Location was excellent and breakfast was not too bad served in a friendly cafe below. Didn't like: The staff were never to be seen, the room although clean had a terrible smell and the internet was non existent which when you want to book things etc made things less relaxing than you would have hoped for.
