My family and I just got back from Italy and stayed at the Fiorentino. It was a great location in Florence as it was a very short walk to the train/bus station. It was also close to many restaurants and gelatarias. The hotel is run by a man and his dog. He was perfectly pleasant but not very helpful. When asked to use a local house phone to make a reservation, I was told that because I was calling a cell phone, it was too expensive and I needed to use my US cell phone.
Beware that a 2nd floor room is 62 stairs up. It isn't so bad if you are young, don't have much luggage, and don't mind climbing, but it is a lot to deal with every time you need to go to your room. The room was perfectly fine and the shared bath was weird but ok. There was a full built in shower at one end of the hall which was fine. The other bath on our end of the hall had a shower head in the wall but the walls of the shower were temporary and needed to be dragged around you to shower in private.
This was ok for the price but I don't think I would recommend it to a friend. The lack of service and the amount of stairs you had to deal with were enough for me to give this an average rating.
