I quite enjoyed my stay at the President Hotel, which is located on a quiet hill outside the center of Florence.
The hotel staff was very friendly. Moreover, the rooms were ok; very clean but for the rest nothing special. I would say more 3* than 4*. The hotel in general and the rooms in particular have quite a retro feeling to them, which is not necessarily bad but I think that the property would benefit from a renovation.
Please be aware that this hotel is not located in the center so for this reason not ideal for tourists I would say. On the flip side the fresh air on the hill on which the hotel is located, is a welcome change to the smog and heat of Florence during the summer months.
