Spent 3 days 2 nights as a Couple at Nuovo Italia and would definitely return to stay for a week or longer if time permits. WiFi access was very useful so we could plan our program or read up on reviews on other sites while having breakfast or unwinding in the hotel room. Room was clean and cosy.
Location was within comfortable walking distance to interesting small quaint craft shops, trottorias, gelato parlours and historical buildings. 10 minutes walk to the famous Duomo and 20 minutes to Ponte Vecchio. With many spontaneous and beautiful sights in Florence, we would recommend ditching the map and enjoy getting ‘lost’ in this lovely city.
Breakfast was delicious. The spread was not extravagant but we had a good meal of pastries, croissants, cereal, yogurt, and fruits. Refillable. We looked forward to handcrafted coffee by the fatherly owner-turn-barista in the morning. But rise early before the kitchen gets too crowded; his daughter usually takes over later on. His Wife and Son spoke English and are very helpful in giving directions and always greeted patrons. The owner seems like he is in his 70s, did not speak a word of English but was jovial and made us feel very at home.
From the train station, it took us approximately 8-10 minutes (with luggage and a GoogleMaps printout) to find this hotel. Once we were familiar, it took us only 5 minutes. Florence had many small lanes so we had to be alert for the street names and sometimes miss it while focusing on the map.
