This hotel stood out cost wise as we searched what were otherwise very expensive hotels in Florence and although it was quite a way from the historical centre, the excellent buses served it very well. The hotel is an old convent and still has an historic feel, although does not feel dated. The rooms were large, simply furnished yet equipped well enough with comfortable beds, LCD tv and hair dryers. Breakfast was very good quality, usual Italian offerings with a Tuscan twist, all fresh and very nice. Evening meals though are not, we struggled one night as we spent too long in Florence and were too tired to get dressed for dinner, so ate pizza from the restaurant which was just rubbish, straight out of a packet and I think even the waiter was embarrassed to serve it up. Advise you not to eat here. Swimming pool was quite good, although the grounds could do with a little attention. Now to location. All things equal, the is far cheaper than anything else we saw in Florence, so would definitely attract me back, but there was not a lot of restaurant choice around, particularly Sunday night, so you may be better eating in Florence itself. Buses are great. Number 10 from Piazza San Marco's goes right past about every 15 minutes and number 17 from the Santa Novella station dropped off about 100 yards away. Tickets available from the hotel or shops with signs for 1e20. Would recommend if you are looking for blue for money and are happy moving around a bit to get it...
