I'm really not sure how you could walk around for an hour an a half trying to find this place given that if you walk to the end of the street (coming from the hotel) and turn right, you're looking at the Santa Maria Novella train station.... but hey, it happens, people get lost. We did, but only because we'd walked for 45 minutes in the opposite direction to get to a B&B where the owner was out all day and we couldn't check in!
All we wanted was somewhere to sleep and a place to wash. We got an en-suite room with TV for 50 euros and given the proximity to the train station and the facilities available, we were happy with that. The bed was comfy, the room was big and clean and I didn't have to put 5 cents in the elevator to get our baggage upstairs so I was happy. It was nothing special, but it was good for what we wanted.
