Plus points: Location was perfect. Very easy walking access to the main sights. You can get a bus from Florence airport to the main train station for €6 which only takes 30 mins (they run every half an hour). The hotel is a 15 minute walk max from the main train station. The room decor was absolutely stunning! We had a four poster bed and a painted ceiling, in true Florence style with a view overlooking the square. The breakfast room was beautiful and there was free WIFI which was reasonably reliable. You can leave your key with the reception when you go exploring. Air-con in the rooms worked really well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. If the bathrooms were slightly bigger and room service was added this could easily be a 4 star/ 5 star hotel!
Points to be aware of - hairdryer was not great, would have brought a travel hairdryer with hindsight. The museum opposite the hotel is currently under construction, however it was not unsightly and it did not affect our enjoyment of the hotel. There is some general noise from the nearby square and roads, however this noise would only bother very light sleepers and would easily be drowned out with earplugs.More
