We stayed here for 2 nights in early July, 2010, for our honeymoon. We actually booked with Hotel Chiazza, but were informed when we got there they had a water problem with the room and made reservations for us here, at Hotel Por Santa Maria. Apparently it's owned by their son, and they called a taxi and all that jive for us (very nice people).
Anyway, the couple that runs Hotel Por Santa Maria were very nice. They gave us some information on the town, called us a cab on the way out, and let us leave our luggage there for a while on our last day.
The room was quite nicely sized, very clean, and comfortable. The portable AC unit in the room kept it cool, but it required us to drain water by hand about twice a day - no biggie, but worth mentioning. Bathroom was also a good size, clean, and modern.
The location was superb. At the end of the block is the main piazza where the Uffizi and many excellent restaurants are. It's also a 10 minute walk to either the Museo Bargello or the Duomo, and about a 15-20 minute walk to the Academia. The covered market next door also gave us a nice shopping opportunity.
We'd definately recommend this place to others. Awesome location, quiet at night, comfortable, clean, and decently priced.
