The hotel itself nice, but I don't think it should be a 4 star hotel. A nice 3 star hotel is more like it. The staff was friendly, the rooms are a good size and the breakfast is good. The hotel is outside the city of Florence (11km) but you can get to Florence using public transportation. You'll have to take bus #26 to the tram station, and then the tram to the train station in Florence. It takes about 30-45 minutes, depending on how well you time the bus. At first I was little skeptical, but the fact that it was outside of Florence was not an issue for us. We would leave the hotel after breakfast, go to Florence for the whole day, and go back to the hotel by 9pm. The public transportation was reliable, and the hotel is in a quiet location.
If you like to go back to your hotel for naps, or if you like to go out late at night...this hotel is not for you. I would suggest you find something inside the city of Florence. If your schedule is more like mine (9am to 9 pm), this hotel works well.
