Hotel was a major disappointment on our recent trip to Italy and Florence in particular. We were with a tour group and they chose the place. The hotel is a Best Western in every sense that connotes. Everything was average at best. Rooms were small but adequate. Bathrooms and showers were very tight and cramped - be sure to ask for a room with a tub/shower. A room with a view might be nice too but we did not have one. The hotel is located in the suburbs of Florence and travel to and from it denies one the opportunity to see that much more of the City (and there is a lot to see and enjoy in Florence). The hot and cold water issues mentioned by some continued to plague us as well. The buffet breakfast was mediocre-poor and was supervised by people who would have made wonderful fascist party members. The concept of a buffet is that it is open and you chose from amongst the offerings.
Here, inadequate seating was assigned to groups and heaven help you if you should seek out or attempt to sit at a seat elsewhere other than what you were assigned to. And the food was only so-so. Greatest virtue of the place was the thin walls and the entertainment that provided listening to your neighbors. The place does have some virtues - but we were unable to find them. Its location is by far the biggest negative aspect of the place and for a place like Florence that is a very significant factor - so much so that even our tour group compensated us for choosing this place. Stay closer to the City center and enjoy everything that Florence has to offer.
