My wife and I chose the Delle Camelie online based on the price, location, and reviews. The hotel itself has two stars on its sign although I've seen it advertised as a 3-star. The room was pretty spartan and wasn't as clean as we would have liked. The walls gave evidence of the mosquito problem in Florence, with smashed bodies and spots of blood on them. Even with the window shuttered, we were swatting mosquitoes every night. The bed was ok. THe air conditioner blew air and we never felt any cooling, even after talking to the desk guy about how to run it properly. There was no closet, rather an armoire that was very old and didn't smell too bad. No in-room safe. Very tall ceiling, no carpeting, making an acoustically live room. Given that, it was pretty quiet. Breakfast, as others have noted, was pretty minimal. Locationwise, we drove a rented car from Germany and the built-in GPS didn't have Italian maps built-in. We used our iPhones to navigate (VERY expensive!). Parking is a challenge with tow-zones not clearly marked if you park at night. We parked at the nearby Forteza, about a 5-10 minute walk away. THere were numerous restaurants nearby which was very nice. Access to the Duomo and interesting parts of the city was a 15 minute walk away--not bad going, but a long way at the end of the day when feet are tired out. We would stay there again but would look for something a bit closer and nicer first. Oh, if driving, the streets around the hotel are a maze of one-way streets. Without a good map or directions it can be incredibly frustrating to even go around the block. Take good maps and/or a good GPS. A hotel clerk who speaks decent English (or your language) and gives good instructions would be a big plus, particularly when arriving in the late evening.
