The hotel is in a charming Renaissance-style building that has recently been renovated, and there are some rooms that look over the street with a beautiful view toward the Arno.
The facilities are modern and everything is very clean, and the friendly staff speak English and are also willing to speak Italian with you if you like.
The location is perfect; it's on a quite street with an excellent "forno" nearby, easy walking distance to the Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio and a bus stop, toward the center, the fabulous Piazzale Michelangelo above that looks out over the entire city, and also a yoga studio nearby.
Rooms can be cheap if you book in advance, but prices tend to go up at the last minute. I believe this place has been mentioned by Rick Steves in addition to renovating recently, so I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes more expensive.
A very quiet and calm location that allowed me a rejuvenating trip.
