The hotel is close to the train station and within walking distance to all the major points of interest in Florence. The room was a bit small but if you are organized, it is adequate for travelers to fit all their gear in place. The breakfast was excellent and the staff was very accommodating, with plenty of tips as to where to eat, etc. The only negative point we found was that as we were checking out, they informed us of a new tax being imposed on tourists at the rate of 4 EUR per person per day, and it had to be paid in cash, not charged. In our case, the 32 EUR we had to dish out at the last moment, without any knowledge, created a bit of a problem. The hotel mentioned that this tax was put into effect in July 2011 in Italy.
