Well ... Let's first start with something positive by saying the staff is offering a great service! Considering the quality of the hotel that would be the least this hotel can offer!
Mainly, I'm questioning when was the last this hotel was evaluated for the stars rating. It's easy to see that this old is quite old! The rooms looked as if nothing was done to improve them since the opening of this hotel. The beds were not comfortable at all, the showers, let's say they were "ok". Besides that there is nothing great about their rooms
The buffet breakfast ... Seriously, how bad can a continental buffet breakfast can be? Simple to answer, ask the Hotel manager. I have been staying at different 3 and 4 stars hotels in many cities of Europe (also Hostels in a younger life) and I have never ever seen a continental breakfast buffet as worst as this one. I'm far from being difficult with meals but when I see powder orange juice, canned fruit salad and canned fruits (peaches and else) and so on... I kinda get frustrated! Top of all, the coffee was awfull. How can you miss your coffee in Italy when all the big names are in this country and the cost is so cheap. Good thing there is snack bar a few seconds from the hotel to take a good coffee for couple of dimes!!
The hotel is a few minutes away (walking distance) from the main attractions. On your way to the main attractions, you will find a small supermarket with good prices, 2-3 on the other side of the streets, couple of other goods restaurants in the streets nearby the hotel.
This hotel should be rated as 3 stars hotel as I'm sure there is probably better 3 stars in Florence that this one.
