We paid €162 for three nights (booked via wotif.com) and couldn't be happier with our stay. The couple that run the Annabella were very welcoming and helpful. They spoke some english (enough to get by) and had a wide selection of maps, brochures and tour guides available for no additional charge.
The rooms were comfortable and clean and very large for European standards. Brilliant location for the train traveller - located barely 100m from Firenze S.M.N and only a short, no more than 5 minute, walk to the famous Duomo and Academia. Even though it is so close to the train station, it is VERY quiet - the hotel is located one street back from the station on a quiet, yet well lit, street. The rooms feature refrigerated airconditioning which maintained a comfortable room temperature for the duration of our stay. There is a supermarket just around the corner too which is very handy. As with most places in Italy, there are a vast amount of qualiity places to eat & drink within a stones throw of the Hotel. Highly reccommend Trattoria Da Guido on Via Faenza for a fantastic meal nearby to the Annabella.
Our only criticisms would be - the Internet was down (due to snowstorm), the pillows were a bit hard for our liking and the room lacked a bar fridge which we found to be unusual.
We would most certainly stay again and reccommend to friends and family.
