We had booked this hotel through a travel agent after reading its reviews on Tripadvisor.com. After Rome B&B Debacle, we were quite Skeptical about florence as it was our next destination but it turned out to be okay. Lets check the good points first - The hotel staff is charming and helpful to a fault. It is centrally located (walking distance from the station and the Duomo) and also houses brochures which offers variety of tours for Florence and neighouring cities in Tuscany, the staffe also helps you to choose them. It was value for money as it costed us 69 Euros a night +tax. Negative - the airconditioning was not working when we entered but the staff was helpful in rectifying that,even though it gave us problems over the next few days we stayed. The internet in room was not available as they were doing some wiring work but a computer was available in Hotel lobby for use. The breakfast offered flavoured yogurt to assortment of breads, cereal but there was no hot food,not even eggs which was a sore point. But the biggest dissappointment was the bathroom - tiny and cramped. but overall, if you can do with the bathroom and breakfast as mentioned, I think it is a good bet from money,location and staff point of view. So I would give it a thumbs up.....
