We choose this hotel as It was opposite the Florence train station convenient for our journey from Pisa and onward to Venice. could not find the hotel at first even walk passed it, it's sign was hidden by other hotel signs. The staff were very good we were given the Leonardo room on the ground floor told it was a quite room the bedroom was large leading to a galley kitchen then wardrobes and dressing table then bathroom with multi jet shower and changing lights even the bedroom ceiling changing color lights, everything was clean, only disadvantage was the windows looked onto a shaft used as storage of the 4 storey building, there was no natural light or view so had to have the lights on in daylight. We called it a futurist dungeon.
There are other theme rooms that look over the garden that you could sit in the evening as we did with a drink watching the swifts darting into the holes in the wall feeding their young. Breakfast could also be taken in the garden this offered a very good choice and plenty of it even pancakes.
Convenient place to stay, 10 mins walk to the Duoma 15 to the Uffizi. If in Florence again we will stay at this hotel.
