While in between work meetings I had some time to spend in Florence, and based on the reviews on here, I booked a single room on hotels.com for about 225 euro a night.
The hotel is in a great location, and a plus is that it is on a street where there are no cars, so I think it makes it a little more quiet in that area. There is a beautiful church across from the hotel, and you can go inside and look around.
My room itself was super small. Being a New Yorker, it didn't bother me, plus I didn't spend a lot of time in there. But it was clean and I felt safe staying there since I was by myself. Also, the water pressure in the shower was good. Something I value!
The staff was great, especially the concierge, Barbara. I asked her to arrange for me a private bike tour of the city, and she called a few people and made it happen. Plus, she picked a good bike guide for me, Keira, and I had a great time and I felt it was money well spent.
They have a nice happy hour and a great breakfast at the hotel, so that was very convenient.
The only drawback is the walls are so thin. I could hear the guy in the bathroom next to me, and I heard everything in the hallway, including the staff running up and down and cleaning the rooms. That was kind of annoying, but maybe it was the size and location of the room. I have stayed in a few hotels in Italy, and I feel like thin walls are kind of the norm.
In summary, should my travels bring me back to Florence, I would stay here again. I hope this was helpful!
