Went there with my mother for a 2 day trip. Hotel is a 15 minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella station, not too difficult to reach except that hotel is actually an apartment in the second floor of a building converted into a bed and breakfast. This means you have to pay attention to building numbers an ring the bell, but it also means you have a very homely feeling, having a living room, kitchen to yourself (shared, but did not see anyone). Our room had its private bathroom, and everything was clean and tidy. Disadvantages: 1-Could not get wi-fi to work and as we were received by an asian-looking fellow who left right after handing over the keys, there was no-one to really ask for additional help. 2-Bed was a bit hard and only a thin bed cover is provided and so if it is a bit cold, you have a problem. We had to sleep with our jackets to stay warm. 3- No shampoo is provided and only a shower gel, so bring your own things if you want to have a decent shower. Water pressure is excellent and hot water is readily available. Overall, it was a very positive experience, I would go there again.
