Stayed here with a friend from 24th to 27th March. Informed the hotel that we would be arriving late at night and immediately received a reply from Filippo (at 3 am!) confirming our late check-in.
Upon arrival, we were checked in quickly. The staff is very approachable and efficient. Their lady cook made fresh delicious bread every morning and also served us coffee. Breakfast options were sparse (bread, one type of ham, cheese, cereals), but is enough to get you through half a day if included in your room package. If not, there are lots of options a few doors down from the hotel entrance.
The hotel's location is awesome; it only takes about a 5 minute walk (less if you walk faster or have longer legs) to reach the Firenze Santa Maria Novella Station, and there are subways (tunnels for people) that can connect you to the Station so you don't have to cross multiple cobblestone streets and break your luggage wheels.
Room is actually pretty big for European standards. Very homely; don't expect 5-star quality for the price you're paying. Very good deal in the center of Florence. Close to the San Lorenzo Leather Market and Mercato Centrale, as well as other landmarks.
Would recommend staying here and using this hotel as a base for exploring Florence as well as other places such as Montervarchi-Terranuovo (Prada Space Outlet), Leccio (The Mall branded goods Outlet), Pisa, etc.
Tip: If noisy spring break-ers next door won't let you sleep, just call reception and they'll handle it for you. Soundproofing isn't the best, but at around $90, the room is already a good deal.
They have a 5-person elevator so no worries if your luggage is heavy. Free wifi throughout hotel (just ask for password).
