Cannot beat location of this hotel. 2 mins to all the main shops, 1 min away from the Duomo, 5 mins walk to about 5 very good restaurants (on Borgo San Lorenzo)....and 8 mins walk from SMN station. Efficient service. Coffee bar right by the lobby which also serves good snacks and good pasta. Large room with modern bathroom fittings. Very clean. Nice lounge area around the hotel lobby. No question - next time I am in Florence I shall stay here.
