It would be hard to fault the location of the Hotel California, halfway between the Duomo and the Academia. It is undistinguished on the outside. The elevator is located to the right of a somewhat off putting metal roll up door at the end of what looks like an automobile driveway. Once inside, you will find a pleasant lobby and helpful staff.
Our room was small, but well appointed; clearly the place has been fairly recently refurbished.
Do not overlook the "Panorama Bar" on the top floor which offers a spectacular view of the dome of the Dumo only a few hundred yards away.
Two significant complaints in this four star hotel. The 10 Euro charge for WiFi is unacceptable in a hotel that charges this much for a room. And the breakfast, while adequate, was not up to four star standards either.
