This hotel is an absolute gem in the heart of Florence. The Father & Son who run the place were an absolute delight and could not do enough to help during our stay. Yes, the rooms are very basic but they are comfortable and clean. The reality is we spent all day out sightseeing, so just wanted somewhere to come back to and sleep, and this place was perfect.
The location is fantastic, as you are within 5 minutes walk of the Duomo, train station and the hop-on hop-off bus! There is also plenty of shopping to be done nearby :)
The breakfast was more than adequate with juices, hot drinks, rolls, meats, cheese, cereal, yogurts, cake and croissants!
The best part was the lovely balcony where you could sit and take your own drinks/food in the evening. You can see part of the Doumo and it is also a great place to people watch, on the streets below.
I would definitely stay here again should I return to Florence :)
