We stayed here for 3 nights and was in a great location and the hotel is really very nice. The website does not do it justice.
Its only 5mins walk from the train station. Cross one road, then head to the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. And you are home.
We were lucky enough to get a beautiful large room which opened up onto the Piazza. The restaurant is nice (maybe a tad expensive) but there are plenty of little authentic restaurants close by.
I ended up being sick on this trip (5th week of our 6 week holiday) and we were only supposed to stay for 2 nights. But the staff were very accommodating and were able to get us a room for a 3rd night, move our bags, and deliver exceptional service the whole time we were there.
Good breakfast, great rooms, and excellent service. We will stay here again next time we go to Florence. Enjoy!
