Location is the winner here
We loved the location, walking out the front to see the duomo down the first street was fantastic. You are right in the centre of shops here and a 2-5 minute walk to the Duomo, a 15 minute leisurely walk to Santa Maria Novella Train station.
Our room was okay. it had a new renovated bathroom which was great, but the rest of the room lacked some warmth and updating. The bed was very firm as were the pillows.
The staff was great, the breakfast was good, don't expect any hot food here, which is very common, cold cuts and cheeses in addition to the usual buffet foods, and a decent cappuccino. Overall for the location it's worth it, especially if you're only in Florence for 2 days!
