First, we can start with the location. Its very close to the train station which is handy. Its close to Santa Maria Novella which has Masaccios "The Holy Trinity" which is a pivotal Renaissance fresco, and its facade is done by Alberti. Not to be missed. But its also easy walking distance to the center of Florence to be awed by the Dumo. In general because the important parts of Florence from a historical and art perspective are so compact its all within walking distance.
The room we got did face the main street out front and it was loud til about 11 pm, and then it died down considerably. If you are noise sensitive make sure you ask for a room away from the road. The room was clean with high ceiling and large windows. It was larger than most rooms I find in Europe but of course there were two single beds pushed together for my wife and I. The internet was flakey but it did work. The bathroom was a bit cramped, and the toilet gurgled for a few minutes after flushing but it was a pleasant enough room. The beds were a little soft for my tastes but nothing terrible.
The lobby was comfortable but behind the lobby was plenty of seating and lounging space which we used since we were a group. This back area seemed mostly forgotten but it provided us with a great place to meet and spread out. The courtyard was very nice, but sadly I never got to the rooftop bar, but the pictures look great.
The staff was efficient and helpful, but we had nothing to concern them with other than a lost room key. And while I couldn't remember which room I was the gentleman staffing the front desk knew without looking it up.
One review said it didn't have an elevator, and I don't understand because there were two (one next to the other) there when we stayed. Granted they were tight but they were there.
I would stay here again.
