The best thing about this hotel, in my experience, was the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. I think the hotel is run by a husband and wife (I didn't ask but it seemed this way), and both of them were very accommodating. We received recommendations for restaurants and gelato places, all of which turned out to be excellent. They also took time to mark all of the main attractions in Florence for us on a map they provided.
The room we stayed in was decent - not great, but not bad. The bed situation was two twins, which you could push together to sort of "fake" a double bed. This is something that's quite common in Europe, and that I find a little annoying. Aside from that, the rooms were noticeably old and probably could use some renovating, but overall were clean and comfortable.
The breakfast (included in the room rate) was slightly below average, even for Europe. There were not really any hot options. The only things I personally enjoyed were rolls with some cold cuts, and yogurt.
All in all, I would stay at this hotel again based on the overall value. One final note - if you're arriving by train, it's relatively easy to walk to the hotel (10 minutes) from the Santa Maria Novella train station. Just make sure you have walking directions in advance.
