Would definitely return to and recommend the Meridiana Country Hotel. Loris Frascarelli and his staff were wonderful and could not do enough for us during our stay. Upon our arrival, Loris gave us a choice of rooms; we obviously took the one with the better view. The Meridiana is quaint, accommodating, clean, in a beautiful location and close to a fantastic local restaurant they recommended just down the road (Gennaro); you could actually walk there.
The receptionist seemed very careless during our check-in, e.g. no welcoming, forgot to give us our room's key, also he didn't ask or mention to let him know in case we need something..seemed very unfriendly. Else hotel condition, comfortness and cleaness were super!
It's an okay place if you don't mind a small shower where the shower curtain is stuck on you when your showering. Plus the wi-fi doesn't extend to the rooms and the breakfast wasn't very fresh tasting. Free parking was a plus and the lady who with the cafeteria truck at night next door to the hotel (she made the best hamburger in the world and it tasted very Italian)

Great staffs, very helpful. Daniel show us the most welcome during our entire 3 days stay.
Very comfortable room plus great location, very easy access the Florence by taking bus (euro 1.2 per trip, you can buy bus ticket from front desk).
You can find the best Tuscany tradition food in the next door restaurant, excellent food with great price.
Supermarket just across the street.

Overall not a bad experience. However, this is labeled a "Non-Smoking" hotel, but it clearly was not always the case. The smell of stale smoke lingers so every time I walked into the hotel this was the first thing I noticed.
Most important, this hotel's name is the Hotel Delta Florence. This hotel is NOT IN FLORENCE! The hotel is not even close to Florence. We took a 45 minute cab ride from the train station, which ended up costing about $40 Euro (as of June/July 2012). This is unreasonable since all the tourist activities and access is in Florence. This would be almost $100 Euro round trip if you took a cab.
Our option: take a bus for $1.20 each way/$2.40 round trip into Florence, which takes 35-55 minutes depending on the time of day. Luckily, there is a stop directly across from the hotel, so at least you don't waste time looking for the bus stop. This means you have to build in travel time to catch the bus and catch your train, making for very long days You'll be in Calenzano.
Just plan accordingly...
