It's a bit off the beaten path, about a 25 minute walk from the Unita train station. This is not a bad thing, as you walk out the door and are not greeted by the rush of people walking by. As other reviewers write, if you want to sleep in a bit of history, this is probably the right place, with some of the original frescoes still intact. But for me, the staff really made our stay in Florence enjoyable. They were friendly, attentive, and prompt. They happily carried our bags up the stairs. They greeted us in the morning for breakfast. They got us (Americans :) ice when we wanted it. My partner needs an electric fan to sleep and they happily accommodated that request. When we checked in, the staff member asked us if this was our first time and when we said yes, she opened up a map and highlighted where everything was relative to our hotel. And even though we had booked a junior suite, we got upgraded to a full suite. All of this is to say that the staff made us feel very welcome and special.

This hotel must be unique. It's in a building which is reputed to be over 500 years old, and retains many of the original features and atmostphere. This is in some ways this makes it great for a stay in the historic city of Florence, and its location is ideal for visiting many of the attractions on foot. The age of the building does detract a little if what you want are all the conveniences of modern Hotel (there are no lifts and narrow winding stairs to the upper floors for example.) The room we had was comfortably furnished in a style in keeping with the building and the bathroom excellent. Mini bar, wifi and other services very good although the TV had no access to English speaking channels. Due to the architecture, a little dark. The staff were exceptional, always welcoming and very helpful and made our short stay most enjoyable. Breakfast was pretty standard continental but good in the small dining room. Unfortunately the weather was bad during our stay, as there is a very attractive open courtyard which must be idylic in better conditions. In summary the Hotel is small, welcoming, and full of atmostphere, well located for a short stay. "Historic House" describes it perfectly.
