The Florent is not a conventional hotel -- there is no daily maid service, you need to restock the toilet paper yourself, and better bring your own soap and shampoo! It is like renting a furnished apartment: there is often no one downstairs at the reception, so if you lock yourself out, you're out of luck. But it's a terrific deal. Four units in an old building in the heart of a quiet neighborhood on the other side of the Arno, near the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens and Santo Spirito, and at a merciful remove from all the touristic madness in the main part of the city. The rooms are modern, clean, stylish, with everything you need -- including a kitchenette -- and completely furnished, there is plenty of hot water and good water pressure, and high ceilings (at least in apartment 4). And for all that, the prices are unbeatable: I paid less than 100 euros a night for a one-bedroom suite at the height of the tourist season. One caution: the bed was quite hard. Otherwise, highly recommended!
