From the airport you are looking at about a 30 minute drive and about 5 from the metro. Located at Via Machiavelli, you will find yourself at very quiet and safe part of town (southern side of Florence). The staff is friendly and willing to help where possible and don't be alarmed when the reception desk is incredibly hot, the rooms are air-conditioned. Upon our entrance to our room (separate from the reception desk building) I found the room to be spacious and clean. Very old fashioned and peaceful, I found the room to be comfortable. The fixtures could use some updating and the closets should be aired out, overall the room is perfect. The only flaw, which is why I gave it a 3 star, was that our room was on ground level next to the entrance door and the constant slamming was quite ridiculous at 2 in the morning. Nonetheless, I would consider coming back.
The hotel, by foot, is a 20 minute walk from the heart of Florence and all the large attraction sites, but its a good walk. You will pass by the Pitti and the gardens everyday and the bus stop is minutes away. You can also walk to Piazza Michelangelo and is highly recommended for scenic views.
FYI: Breakfast is served up until 1015, but don't expect to stay full if you don't like pastries and hard boil eggs every morning. Enjoy your vacation!
