We stayed here for two nights in july 2014 and we very much enjoyed our stay.
Due to traffic the hotel is may be slightly difficult to reach but then again it was high season. The hotel is nicely located on the edge of the historic part of florence and within walking distance of the hotel.
The staff are very friendly and willing to help you out with what ever question you may have. We had our car valet parked by a company that is close by which worked out really well.
The rooms are modern and clean with a nice soft bed and a large bathroom. The courtyard of the hotel is nice and has a jacuzzi (which we didn't use). The only thing that could be improved is the breakfast. For a best western hotel i would have expected a little more choice and slightly better quality.
Based on our two nights here at approximately 105 euros a night this is a very nice hotel which has an excellent price quality balance.
