We thought this hotel was good value for the location. We were given the Garden Room (#505) which is a two-story, very private and quiet room overlooking the garden. The breakfast was good - wide selection of pastries, cereals, cheeses, meats. The location is very central - we had a car (which you really don't want in Florence) and had trouble getting to the hotel because the one-way street changes direction at some point and we always managed to be at the wrong point. Apparently GPS systems don't work in Florence!
Room was clean and comfortable. Front desk staff were very helpful. Walking distance to Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, restaurants and shopping. When we were there they were building a restaurant on-site, but I'm not sure when it is opening.
