I was lucky to come across this gem via agoda.com and booked based on the reviews on this site.
My wife and I were bracing ourselves for disappointment, thinking that the photos would not be like on the website, but were pleasantly proven wrong.
The hotel is located very close to the train station(5-10 minutes walk) and like previous reviews, we found it a little difficult to find due to the lack of (obvious) signage. The place itself has a very nice modern touch to it and the service was decent and the staff were relatively helpful (make sure you ask them to help you book tickets for attractions like the Uffizi). The room itself was surprisingly small (half or even a third of a regular-sized hotel room in Asia) and the reviewers were not kidding when they said the shower was small. However, my brother-in-law, who had stayed at other European hotels assured me this was the norm in Italy.
Other than that, the room itself was very clean and well-designed to maximise the use of space. Furthermore, the breakfast, composing of cereals, cheeses, coffee, etc was surprisingly good.
All in all we were happy with the hotel and would recommend it highly to other visitors, though if you wanted to stay in a "historic" hotel, this would not be the place for you.
