The best thing about this hotel is its location, as it's close to everything. Andrea at the front desk was extremely helpful and welcoming. I reserved a room for one night, but ended up staying 2, at the same price as I was quoted online. The (single) rooms are small, but that is to be expected. The breakfast was good and generous. The beds and pillows are very hard, so if you need a soft pillow, bring your own. I had an issue with the smoke-smelling room I was first given (over the street, so when I opened the windows it was quite loud), so I called downstairs to ask for a non-smoking room. Andrea moved me to another room on the same (third) floor, which also smelled of smoke (it even had an ashtray!), but the windows opened over the quiet courtyard, so I opened them to air out the room, and stayed. Other than the smokiness, the rooms are very clean. They offer free wi-fi in the lobby, which was really useful. They have an elevator, which is evidently a big advantage over some of their competitors. They graciously stored my bags for me after checkout while I wandered the town before my departure. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would return to this hotel next time I'm in Florence. Traveler tip: if you plan to visit the Uffizi, make sure to make reservations (online before you go, or Andrea will do this for you if you forget).
