We absolutely recommend Hotel Mario's for a nice (not luxury) hotel. Let's start by saying that we needed a hotel that could store our bicycle cases while we did a self-guided 2 week trip through Tuscany. We took the taxi to the hotel from the airport because of our bike boxes, otherwise we would have taken the bus to the train station and walked from there.
Hotel Mario's is located in the the center of Florence, on a 1st floor (stairs only). Thankfully Leonardo helped us right away with storing our bikes at street level. Our room was simple but with Tuscan style. Our window opened and overlooked via Faenza - a narrow one way alleyway street.
My husband and I stayed two nights. The desk staff was always very helpful and gave good recommendations on restaurants and easy walking directions (with map) for town. The lobby area has two nice sitting areas with lots of books and one with a little coffee/bar. We had coffee one afternoon and there was no charge.
The breakfast was plentiful with meats, cheeses, breads, cereals, yogurt, fruit, and hard boiled eggs.
We are looking forward to staying 2 more nights at the end of our trip. The only downside was that the street was a little noisy at night so we had to shut our window.
