My GF & I stayed here in late April 2009 (and it's stuck with me, so must've been good, right?), and absolutely loved it. It's a very short walk from the train station, which is nice with luggage.
The room was adequate, but the service of owner Carmen (and husband Pino) was spectacular. Additionally, the rooftop terrace, where all the travelers seemed to congregate after a long day of sightseeing and discuss their trips over many bottles of wine provided a great sense of community.
Of all the wonderful sights in Florence, Carmen & Pino's hotel ranks right up with the best as our favorite memories of Florence (along with the Accademia, Piazzale Michelangelo, and the Duomo). It was definitely a surprise.
