There are hundreds of hotel options in Florence and it took me sometime to find a hotel that would suit my needs. I was initially looking at hotels near the train station and then settled on something more reasonably priced near the water.
This hotel was well reviewed and had a special price for a single, which was perfect.
The room was of modest size with a bed that was a little bigger than a twin. There was no "view" but the room was clean, had a small bathroom in the room with an armoire and mini-fridge.
The room was at the top of a staircase off the 5th floor. The least appreciable point of the room was the bathroom, which had a defined space for a shower but not enclosure or shower curtain, which made for a lot of water splashed everywhere.
The staff was very helpful and accommodating on all shifts and the breakfast buffet was plentiful, with many options of fruit, cereal, baked goods and eggs.
The best part of the hotel was the location. One of the lobby's exits is through a bar which has a walkway leading the Arno, turn left and walk down half a block and you are at Ponte Vecchio. A bit further was the entry way to the Uffizi Museum. The furthest walk was about 15-20 minutes to reach Dell'Accademia.
I would highly recommend this hotel as a comfortable option for a stay in Florence. I had a single but the hotel has six floors and several rooms that face the Arno.
