The Hotel Savonarola Florence shares the property (and reception) with its 2 star older sister, the well established Hotel Benvenuti. Having recently been upgraded to 3 star, the Savonarola adds an extra touch of class and a few small luxury features to lift the standard of this budget accommodation and make for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday for all.
One endearing feature is the choice between en suite bathroom facilities or shared facilities, so guests just looking for safe lodgings as cheap as possible needn’t pay for conveniences they can do without, while those looking for a slight upgrade from a hostel (well after all, this is the cradle of the renaissance) can splash out just a few Euros more for the luxury of being able to walk naked from shower to bed.
This city centre hotel near the Giardino della Gherardesca has fifteen rooms in total - one single and the rest ranging from double/twin up to quadruple and if one room is shared by four then the accommodation makes for extremely good value, considering the star rating and location close to the university, San Lorenzo and Piazza della Indipendenza.
Wireless internet is available for a supplemental fee in all rooms and breakfast is included in the room rate. Staff are on hand 24 hours and a basic concierge service is also offered, planning trips and excursions, city tours and offering tourist maps as well as personal recommendations. All rooms are non smoking and enjoy a fresh natural illumination that falls gently upon the soft wood finish. Air conditioning comes as standard in every room at no extra cost.
