We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. The room was clean. We did have issues with a slow draining sink that we complained about twice and it never got fixed. And it's likely just an Italy thing, but the A/C was on the lowest setting and it never felt like the room would cool down. The room was a decent size and the shower had good water pressure. Location is great ... especially is you are arriving and departing by train. It's maybe a 10 min walk max depending on how much luggage you are carrying. It's also close to the Duomo (and really everything since Florence is small in comparison to Rome for example). The breakfast buffet was decent. Basically, what you would expect. Meats, cheeses, boiled eggs, cereals, fruits, yogurt, bread. Pastries that looked good but weren't really. I'm a tea drinker so I can't comment on the coffee, but it was from a push button machine. Breakfast is free so you can't really complain, but you could probably get better out. (My opinion could be swayed by having it 5 days in a row and being over it!) We had a decent amount of clothes laundered and they came back fine (though we did get someone elses jeans that we returned which is a little scary!) The hotel offered a few free walking tours each week but it never worked for our schedule to join one. Also, the hotel did book reservations for me for the Accademia and Uffizi when I emailed them weeks before we arrived. While the hotel wasn't perfect, we didn't have any major issues that would keep me from recommending them or consider staying with them again.
