We stayed here for two nights in July 2012 because we wanted to be within walking distance to the duomo. In Italy you can generally park on the streets for free if you park in stalls painted white but not in this neighborhood because it was parking for only the residents. Parking behind the hotel cost 16 euros per night. The nightly cost of the hotel was already a lot without also having to add another 16 euro. The decor is old (and NOT a nice antique type of old) and our room was small and smelled musty. Our mattress was smaller than the box spring and there was very little room on the sides of the bed. The air conditioner didn't work on the "low" setting and the "medium" setting was very loud. The breakfast was modest but good. If you like to walk, it is a good location with access to the train and the duomo. We actually walked all over Italy in our two days there because we didn't want to have to drive anywhere. If we go to Florence again, we will stay someplace else.
