                  The breakfast is very complete, good coffee. The staff was extremely friendly, kind and helpful. Check in and out without any problems. Clean sheets and towels everyday. The building is a little old, and the walls are thin, but the place is quiet and very clean and the beds comfortable. The neighborhood is also nice and quiet and has some very good restaurants. We stayed five nights and we are really happy about the experience! And the price was also very good!

                  The hotel is about 20 minutes walking from the center. We found it a very pleasant experience, because you get to see a part of Florence that is out of the touristic zone, but for other people maybe annoying. Then again you have a lot of bus stops next to the hotel and for less than an euro you can be in the center in no time.

                  Convenience to bus stops and good local restaurants. Also, grocery shop available for forgotten items.

                  The bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable.

                  The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

                  The hotel is too far from the centre and it was a good 30minutes walk from the hotel to the town

                  Helpful staff, clean room, good breakfast

                  Don't take room on ground floor, very noisy! We were next to the living room, and annoyed by people talking aloud at night and the tv in it. we got difficulties in falling asleep every night. other minor troubles: the double-bed is too small; bathroom small too and weak shower discharge; poor light in the room; we got lost for the first time of getting off the bus N.22 at St Iacoponi, finally we noticed the last bus stop called Scalatti is closer.

                  I stayed in the newly recommended Executive Suites and thought it was excellent!

                  Wifi could be better.

                  The front desk staff were pleasant and helpful but the hotel is badly in need of an upgrade.

                  Everything appears worn, stained, chipped and not in good working order. The beds are uncomfortable. We stayed in many nice places during our trip in Itay but Western Select was a big disappointment. It really needs refurbishing.

                  Good location (it's on a quiet/less busy street). A good 25 minutes walk to city center (or 8-10 minutes by bus no 22). Reception staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. There's a 2-3 minutes walk to buy food nearby (they close at midnight) if you are hungry at night. If you come with a car, apart from the hotel parking (16 Euro/day), there's a street parking (across the hotel - blue line), it's free from 8pm-8am (8am-8pm, 1.50 Euro/hr). Mine you every 4th Saturday of the month, the city clean the street (12-4am), so you cannot park there (or you will be towed).

                  The hotel is not family-friendly with small kids/infant. There have no baby chair for breakfast (even budget 2/3 star have baby chair!). The wifi could have been improved. They gave you username and password but the wifi keep disconnect by itself (for whatever reason) and you have to re-type username and password few times (5-6 times - really irritating!). I only recommend this hotel if you don't have small kids/infant.

                  The price, acceptable location, and possibility to safely park.

                  Cleanliness of room. The air quality in the room was quite poor. Furthermore this was the noisiest hotel room I've had in a long time.
