On arrival the area surrounding the hotel isn't so appealing. The hotel is inside its own gated grounds with good parking facilities & pleasant outside seating areas. It's adjacent to GE/Nuovo Pignone which for me was great but close to the airport & Florence so perfect.
The hotel is big with 7 floors figuring the room numbers wasn't the simplest thing 'odds & evens' but fine once sorted.
The style is very late 80's but that shouldn't detract, the hotel is very clean & well maintained. Staff are excellent, friendly, courteous and helpful. The room was fairly large with a firm bed, it included a safe & a mini bar which they also invited you to put your own things if you wanted. Bathroom was fine with a good shower, window shutters & aircon kept the room cool.
Breakfast was great with lots of choice cereal, fruit, meats, cheese even scrambled egg & bacon
Things they don't tell you:- wifi is extended to the rooms & is fast enough for Skype or FaceTime, the hotel has a small gym in the basement & the meeting facilities are good. Taxi to the airport or Florence is about 14€ if you book at the hotel specify if you want to pay by card as not all taxis take them.
