Kraft-Hotel too far from town

I just made a reservation at the Hotel Kraft and notice that it is a ways from some of the sites, but received this dollar=euro deal that put the 200 euro room at 200 usd. So is it worth it for a decent room if you have to walk longer or possibly taxi?

The Golden Tulip Kraft is in Via Solferino, between Stazion di Santa Maria Novella (the mian station) and the small Stazione della Porta al Prato. If you are able bodied it is not a long walk either down Il Prato and Borgo Ognissanti or walking alongside the Arno down Lungarno Amerigo Vespucci. Either way you pass through Piazza Ognissanti where the church of Ognissanti is well worth a visit with some superb paintings.

It is probably to more than 600 yards from the Duomo.

Just to echo what has already been said. The Kraft is about 12-15mins from the Duomo. We sometimes walked and sometimes got a taxi which wan't very expensive.

The Kraft is an okay hotel with large rooms most of which were renovated recently. Like you we got a bargain.

Do visit the church of Ognisanti and make sure you find the frescoe of TheLast Supper by Ghirlandio. It is in the refectory and is simply super.
