We stayed here six nights and planned visits to small towns such as Scarperia, as well as a few forays into Florence, which we have visited three times before. It is an easy drive to the hotel from the airport and you can park for free if space is available in the forty-fifty space ground level lot (or for 10 euro in the underground lot if not available). Much better than terrible traffic and expensive parking in Florence. The movie mall next door has a fairly good restaurant, Marlborghetto, which charges only 16 euro for a 1.5 pound bistecca Fiorentina and fries.
If you are doing only Florence, forget a car and stay in town, but for car travel and the occasional bus/taxi trip into Florence, this is a good location and a good hotel. The executive lounge has great views of Florence and the Duomo, and a great staff member in Gabirel.
