We stayed one night at the end of our 10-day trip to Tuscany. Given our past experience with hotels at this price near Santa Maria Novella, we were really surprised at the charm and poshness of this hotel. It was not easy to find by driving in our rented car. We couldn't believe the directions our GPS was giving us. (They turned out to be right, but the narrowness of the streets and the warnings that we were entering a restricted area made us doubt.) We ended up parking in the public garage underneath SMN Station and walking what ended up being a short two blocks to find this clean, stylish place down a tiny side street. Once there, we found out how to drive to the front door, from where a man from a nearby garage parked it, and for 27 Euro returned it almost immediately upon our asking for it the next day.
The public spaces are excellently maintained, and decorated in a nice balance of 1890's and contemporary style. Our large room with comfortable king bed seemed recently renovated, with up-to-the-minute marble bathroom (bidet included), and pleasant decor. Breakfast was plenty good enough, even including passable scrambled eggs. The cappuccino was from a machine, and less than bar-perfect. We would definitely stay there again.
