Nice enough hotel in a good location and only a 10-15 minute walk from the Duomo. At first it seems a bit dated but it has a certain charm that grows on you. We had a room on the 7th floor which was comfortable and quiet, had good views and was kept spotlessly clean.
Wi-Fi in room was fast but intermittent as they’ve only just installed it in all rooms so I imagine they were having a few teething problems.
Breakfast is reasonable with a fairly good selection but nothing special.
Staff very helpful and pleasant including a charming elderly barman but prices in the bar a bit steep at 9 euros for a G&T. They do a Happy Hour between 5-7pm when drinks are half price.
Some decent restaurants and the river within a few minutes’ walk.
In a city like Florence you're not going to spend much time in your hotel room during a weekend break so taking all into account not a bad choice and reasonably priced.
