The hotel was very close to the train station, which was very helpful for us because we only stayed one night and left on a train for Venice the next afternoon. It is about 5 minutes walk from the main cathedral in Florence and all of the sights. We got two rooms for our family and both were reasonably spacious, very clean, and well-equipped. My bed was very comfortable and the bathroom much larger than expected. The roof area was also very beautiful - we came in winter so the pool was closed but the roof was still open to wander around and look out over the city. My only small complaint would be that the decor of the rooms was relatively bare compared to the pictures on the website.
