Perfect location, clean, surprisingly quiet
Location is everything, especially when you're traveling in the summer months and don't feel like walking 2 miles to see each landmark. This hotel is in the center of everything and that's why we picked it.
However, considering its fantastic location as decent price, I didn't expect much from the inside. We had a basic room for just me and my wife, but this included a bed (comfortable) and a kitchen and a bathroom that, although narrow, did the job and was ultra clean.
The room was made up each day and the door and lock to our room resembled that of a small bank vault. We felt safe, and couldn't believe how quiet the place was (considering the location, especially).
The hotel staff was helpful, pleasant, and attentive. For example, I needed an iron and the woman at the desk was checking in several guests, so she told me she would deliver it to my room within an hour. She did just that and couldn't have been more pleasant on a chaotic day.
This was my third time in the city and this hotel was leaps and bounds above the rest. If and when we return to Florence, we will never stay anywhere else.
