Stayed here with work, accommodating staff, chilly air con that suits my Scottish temperament, clean rooms and a decent continental buffet breakfast.
The staff speak some English, better than my Italian!! They aren't fluent but we could understand each other fine.
Oh and the location, absolutely superb! Right next to the duomo, half of the rooms face it, unfortunately mine didn't however my colleagues did, such a spectacle to see at any time. Apparently the staff will endeavour to get you a "room with a view" (excuse horrible pun) if you request it, however as mine was a business stay I wasn't worried.
Hotel is traditional room key access and is up some floors on what appears to be a residential block, initially off putting but is fine once in. 24hr reception so no issue getting in at the wee small hours of the morning.
In terms of staying there I'd say it's great for business use, also those using it as a base to explore Florence could hardly ask for a better central location. The location alone would seem to warrant a premium price however it's remarkably inexpensive, even in peak season.
