    Fabulous

    Good location and facilities. Clean throughout. The centre of the city is about 5 minutes' walk away. The facilites include a washing machine and free internet.

    The only bad point was the bed, which was not at all comfortable.

    Very good

    Francesco was very friendly and helpful when he greeted us. There is a computer, kitchen and coffee machine for everyone's free use.

    It's basic. But fine.

    Superb

    we was guided to another hotel(I forget its name) which is very near II Ghiro. We love its location as it near the Central market and we love to go to the market every morning. There're so many booths around the market, to sell souvenir and leather products.

    The room is too small. Our room don't have any view and on the dark side. But we see they have south-facing room.

    Il Ghiro Guest House has a great location - within walking distance to the train/bus station and all major tourist attractions. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. It is very safe, clean, and modern.

    Superb

    We really enjoyed our stay at this place. It’s in a great location, there is a kitchen, with a stove and fridge and plenty of cooking utensils, free WiFi, a ceiling fan, which we especially liked, and Francesco, the manager was friendly and helpful. He gave us a map and advised us how to get to the sights. There is a good morning market nearby, which does not close until 2 P.M., so we were able to cook some meals, a welcome break from restaurants. Bathroom was shared - but right next door to our room and we never had any problem accessing it. Highly recommended.

    Up three flights of stairs without a lift (but it's worth the climb).

    Superb

    The location is great, very close to the main train station (Santa Novella) and the Duomo (the main tourist attraction place). The room and washroom were very clean. There was a computer available with free wi- fi. It provided tea and coffee which we could make anytime. The staff was friendly and helpful and knew english so it was easy for us to communicate with them.

    We stayed in the new apartments that Ghiro has. The old one we heard are not so good and also thats on the third floor. The new one is on the first floor. Carrying all ur luggage till third floor could be a problem (though the hotel staff did help in carrying it).

    The location is really good, and the owner is helpful.

    The room is a little bit small and a little bit hot during my stay.

    Good

    The location is very good. It's near the central station and not far from the old town.

    The room is too small and bathroom outside is not so nice. I must take the key to open the bathroom everytime.

    Exceptional

    The hosts are amazingly nice and helpful. The hostel is very small (only 5 rooms), which makes it extremely cosy. After one day staying there, one feels oneself totally at home. The presence of a kitchen is quite practical. The whole place is a bit old and shabby but very clean (including the shared bath). After those 5 days full of cultural discoveries, we really enjoyed our evenings there. Oh! - and the situation is perfect. Which all together makes it the best hostel I have ever stayed in.

    Fabulous

    Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was great as far as proximity to everything including atm, supermarket, and great local restaurant. They had washing facilities that was great after a week of traveling. Free coffee was great in the morning.

    There is no elevator so the three flights of stairs was tough with lots of luggage. The hallway and stairs smelled musty.
