Location and Value:
Hotel Serena is located in a prime central area just across Firenze SMN, within walking distance (in fact less than 5 minutes if you're a fast walker) and it will link you to almost all the tourist spot in no time. I have to say this is the most value for money hotel in the area with nice breakfast (good enough for me)
Room are clean daily (though I'm not sure if they change the beddings and towels).
Room and sleep quality:
Spacious and big; retaining the best of Italy culture. The room i stayed was not renovated, everything was almost like "old school italy". The hotel is "shared" with a few other hotel and offices in the same building; linked with a really sturdy but old lift. The one thing I hate is that we're super near one of the bus terminal and the street has plenty of young punks creating a nuisance of themselves at night. It also doesn't help that the floor above Hotel Serena was also a hotel and if the one staying above are not considerate enough, you're bound to be in for a "good time"
Overall; I'm giving Hotel Serena a above average rating due to it's location and nice owners.
