The hotel is within a short walking distance of most major attractions in Florence, and a short cab ride (€10-12) from the train station. There are some steps to haul your bags up to reception, but they have a camera to see you coming and will come down to help. And, that is just the beginning of some seriously friendly and dedicated service - one of the best attributes of this hotel.
The rooms are bright and new, reasonably spacious by European standards. Our bathroom was quite narrow (about 1.5 people wide throughout), requiring some care to navigate. Other than that, the facilities were just fine. The WiFi didn't work for us, necessitating use of an Ethernet cable cheerfully provided. The room has a safe for stowing your valuables.
Breakfast is in one of more visually stunning rooms, as breakfasts go. The roof has some nice paintings in panels and considerably enhances the aesthetic appeal of the setting. There was a decent spread of pastries, juices, cheeses and cold cuts - but no hot items at all.
There is a nice little shop downstairs of the hotel, dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci's work.
Overall, very pleasant place to stay in Florence.
