This hotel is actually a bed&breakfast as they have no lunch or dinner. The breakfast is typical of southern Europe with some cakes, bisquits and croissants, coffee and tea. However they do have juice, cereals and fruit as well, and at least one day there were boiled eggs.
The location is ok, a bit to the north of centrum. Walking distance to the conference center (Fortezza da Basso) is 20-22 minutes, to the railway station (Santa Maria Novella) 3-4 minutes less and to the Duomo you walk in 15-17 minutes.
Some reviewers complained about noise at the hotel. There is some street noise in rooms facing the rear side of the hotel (north-east) but I think it cannot be avoided in Florence. For some reason ambulances use their sirenes at all hours whether streets are empty or not.
Taxi from the airport (Peretola, to the west of the city) costs Eur 20 in daytime, otherwise Eur 23 plus 1 Euro per piece of luggage. I paid a little more (Eur 29) when I returned to the Airport but then I left at six in the morning and the taxi had to wait for me for some minutes.
I stayed in room 28, on the top floor. A spacious room with beautiful roof paintings. The bed was rather hard but that suited me well. No problem with water pressure (as other reviewers have experienced).
