We stayed here for two nights and had a great stay. The location is excellent, a stone's throw from the Duomo, Baptistery and Campanile, and 5 mins walk from the station. The Uffizi, Accademia, and many other sights are within a few blocks walk from the hotel.
The hotel is on the 3rd/4th floors, with a lift from the entrance. The staff speak fluent English and were very welcoming when we arrived and helpful throughout our stay. They contacted me by email prior to our arrival offering to pre-book tickets, and they arranged tickets for the Uffizi and Accademia (definitely recommended to pre-book to skip the enormous queues).
Check-in was a little chaotic as there were a lot of people checking-in and out at the same time with only one receptionist. However, our room was ready early, before midday. The room was small and fairly basic, but clean and with a comfortable king-sized bed. The bathroom was clean, with a good shower (no bath) and some basic toiletries. There is no fridge/minibar. Air conditioning worked well. There was some noise outside from music in an adjacent courtyard going on into the early hours on our first night, but otherwise we weren't disturbed except by church bells at 7am. Breakfast was good quality continental (no hot food) with pastries, ham, fruit, cereals, juice and fresh coffee. Although we didn't make it, there is a 'happy hour' with drinks served between 6-8pm and the first drink is free.
A very pleasant stay, a touch on the expensive side for what it is, and perhaps that's paying for the very convenient location.
