My adult son and I stayed in Florence for 8 days. As everyone points out, the location is excellent, walking distance from all the museums, the duomo, and the train station. The breakfasts were delicious, and they quietly change the TV station from the local Italian to an English station, depending on who is in the room. My son and I were on different schedules, and they were very gracious about coming downstairs to let whomever didn't have the key back in to the room. We had a very quiet twin room facing the courtyard, and it was far larger than we expected. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone, and to visit again. It's not a luxury hotel, but the friendliness and warmth of Miriam and the staff made our stay perfect.
