We had to travel to Florence for a family funeral. Our main concern was to be close to where we needed to be. Friends had stayed here in the past and said it was fine. It was just that, fine. No frills, excellent location, clean, within walking distance to our relatives, the church, the bus line and some very quaint neighborhood cafes.
My main complaint was that there is no separate shower. It is a handheld shower head in the bathroom where everything else is. Also, the room is small but we weren't in it for long so that wasn't a concern.
When we visit our relatives in Florence again, we may stay there. The price certainly was reasonable. They offer a free continental breakfast from 8 AM-10 AM.
They take VISA, but I strongly suggest you bring Euros with you (something we had no time to do) since even the bank soaks you with the exchange rate.
