We stayed at this hotel for a few days in Nov 2012. It exceeded our expectations. We were immediately thrilled with the location and with our nice, clean, modern room. It is steps from the duomo and in a central location so it is easy to drop in during the day if you'd like to change, rest, etc. We took a cab from the train station initially and laughed when we realized how close it was. Despite our big luggage we rolled it ourselves the couple of blocks back to the train station upon our departure. Staff was helpful in setting up dinner reservations, discussing day trips (which we did not end up doing based on weather forecast) and other information. Most mornings we ate (the included) breakfast and would walk outside to see the view of the duomo right from the terrace. One afternoon we sat out there drinking wine and eating meat and cheese which we had purchased at the central market - it was perfect. I have already reccomended this hotel to friends who are planning trips to Florence and would absolutely stay here again. There is a little cafe attached to the hotel which we did not have a chance to try as we were always out and about but it looked very cute and convenient to have right there..
