I am highly recommending this place. It is not fancy, but it is quite nice. Having paid for some very nice rooms that I barely spent time in during my early travel days, I opt for less fancy places.
Our room was very clean and adequately sized. The bathroom was a little tight, but manageable. The A/C worked fine, you have to call the front desk to get them to turn it on. My wife loved the various art pieces scattered around the hotel.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The husband and night clerk were especially so. The night clerk gave us a very good restaurant recommendation just outside the hotel door. We might not have tried it otherwise. The Trattoria Antichi Cancelli was the best meal we had while in Florence. It was by far the most reasonably priced. She also always remembered our room number in our comings and goings.
They provide a very nice breakfast. If you walk away hungry it is your own fault. They sit you at tables and bring coffee/espresso to you. Various pastries, breads, jellies, fruits and cereals are provided along with milk and juices. It was a very pleasant experience to start your day.
The hotel is very centrally located. It is just a few blocks from the train station. All the major tourist attractions are in very easy walking distance as are restaurants, cafes and shopping. The big outdoor market is just a couple blocks away.
It is in a busy area and can get a little noisy, but I did not find this an issue except the one afternoon when I tried to catch a short nap. In the evening, many of the vendors from the outdoor market roll their goods to storage areas close to the hotel. Just remember you are in a large city. It was still much quieter than New York.
Do yourself and your budget a favor and stay here.
