Considering how we got into Florence at 3:45AM, we were more than glad to get to our hotel. The night concierge wasn't entirely helpful (and probably didn't speak much English), but he got us our room keys and walked us up to the room (112). We had to walk back down again after we realized that there was no remote (or any control device) for the air conditioning, especially since the room was sweltering hot when we arrived. The breakfast, albeit odd, was probably one of the best full breakfasts we've had provided by the hotel. Hot eggs, sliced cold meats, non-stale bread selection, lots of soft cheeses, and even a simple tossed salad. A variety of fruits was even provided and the fruit juices were nice. We don't drink coffee, but they had a coffee bar that a very nice gentleman ran and asked each guest nicely what they'd like. The room was decent with a firm bed (2 singles pushed together for a double) and we had wooden shutters open out to the street below. I think because of the loud A/C, we didn't notice any street noise. The rooms are very antiquated with decorations, but at least the bathroom was spacious (the only large layout of all 7 hotels we stayed at!) with a shower tub instead of a stall. The shower head and curtain was a little awkward and made it difficult to shower, however. Overall, the room was pleasant enough for the stay and the concierge clerks we met were generally nice and professional (also the most professional-looking we've come across). Also the hotel is very convenient to the Station SMN, but outside of the sketchy/commercial zone and very close to the beautiful river. It was fairly easy for us to walk to sightseeing destinations of Florence. Even though the hotel layout is odd, the room furnishings are strange and old (sometimes borderline creepy), the condition of the room itself was great, the bathroom was decent, and the breakfast was a surprising delight. We wouldn't mind going back again.
