We stayed three nights in late November. If you're arriving by bus the location is fantastic as it's across the street from the bus "terminal" which is really just a couple of curbs and not some ugly bus station. Everything was first class, from the lobby to the rooms to the breakfast to the location, just a few minutes to walk to the center of the old city. The two big complaints that people seem to have with this hotel (air conditioning issues and noise from the soccer field just behind) did not affect us at this time of year. I thought the place was wonderful and when we finally got to Florence I missed the Excelsior, and Siena too.
Our room overlooked Saint Catherine's, which is a big red brick box of a cathedral. Saint Catherine's head is inside, in a glass case. Her thumb is there as well. Apparently pieces of her are all over Italy. My guidebook said her ankle can be found in Venice! My next trip to Italy will be a Saint Catherine Tour. I intend to visit all the various pieces.
