We selected the Hotel Universo because it is conveniently located near the train station (we took a side trip to Pisa, highly recommended) and easy walking access to the city of Florence. It is clean and modern. I would not recommend a room facing the square if you are a light sleeper. Yes indeed it is a beautiful view but our windows on the fourth floor were not soundproof and I heard every truck and activity that went on all night. It did not help that our toilet ran all night, but in fairness we were only staying one night so we did not mention it to the desk until we left. Breakfast included cereals, yogurt, croissants, meats, etc. Clean is my major criteria for selecting a hotel room. The sheets and towels are not luxurious and the beds are fine, a bit hard for me, but all in all satisfactory. We were there to see Florence, not to experience a spa-like hotel.
