Hotel Canada is a really a pensione, not a hotel. The rooms are spotless and mine was rather large. The owner was very gracious and sought to make my stay comfortable. She's always around, so you definitely feel looked after. I had a room with a shared bathroom, which was down the hall and across the common room. My room did have a sink, however. The shared bathroom was also very clean.
The location of this pensione was terrific. Just steps from the Piazza del Duomo, you hear the bells in the morning (so if you are a late sleeper, beware). It's also a short walk from all the major sights and a ten minute or so walk to the train station. You can't feel more "in the mix" at this spot.
Unfortunately, there is no air conditioning, and leaving the window open to get a nice Florence breeze was hampered by a lot of street noise, especially starting early in the morning. On hot Italian nights, the lack of air-con leaves one feeling a bit sticky. If you can, ask for a room on the other side of the building. There was wi-fi, but it didn't work well in my room and I had to either sit by the propped open door, or move to the common area.
