So my wife and I used Hotel Roma as our base for a 3 night stay in Florence. As we were flying into Pisa and getting the train across to Florence, I decided that I would book us into a hotel that is close to the railway station.
Hotel Roma was a great choice as it is only a few minutes walk from the station and on the way there are a few coffee shops and restaurants - we needed to kill an hour before the 2pm check-in, so this was perfect. Staff were very friendly and the ambience of the place is very peaceful. The room was clean and, in our view, well appointed. We were at the front of the hotel, so it was a little noisy with the ambulance station opposite and lots of people walking by having fun, but this didn't bother us enough to use the earplugs we had brought with us having read other reviews. I guess we were so tired every night after the many activities we packed in during the days that it wasn't a problem.
All in all, a great choice and a good base as the sightseeing buses all go from the train station and take you all round the city - almost all of the main sights are within ten minutes of their nearest bus stop. It is well worth getting a sightseeing bus ticket - we got one for 48 hours and used it loads.
