Staff were very friendly and you couldn't ask for a more convenient location to great sites in Florence (1.5 blocks to Duomo and 1.5 blocks to Accademia). Hit the Bancomat to get cash before you leave to get the 10% cash discount on the room (this was offered to us, at least). The old-fashioned cage elevator was great fun ... it felt like a throwback to an old movie.
Our room was wonderful ... facing a quiet courtyard. Hotel seems to be offset (inside a larger residential building) from busy Via Cavour, so I'm guessing that most rooms are quiet.
Only downside, as noted elsewhere, is the pathetic breakfast. I would have gladly paid 10 - 15 Euros more per night to get a decent breakfast.
