From the very beginning the experience was fantastic! We were on our honeymoon in Italy and so I requested a room overlooking the garden in the back (room 14). The room was gorgeous, clearly recently renovated with a beautiful bathroom and a stunning view of the garden in the back. At check in the lovely women at the reception desk gave us a free map and took the time to explain where the bus stops were to get to central Florence (bus 11, 17) and the stop for the bus that circles Florence (bus 12) in case we wanted to get to the other side of the river. They also marked down some recommended restaurants for us (da Ganino was one of my favourite restaurants in Italy!) which was a lovely touch. The location was quite good but it is worth knowing that it is not in the center of town, it's about a 20 minute walk in (which was great for burning off all the carbs from the pasta!). We didn't find this an issue at all. If you're coming from the Santa Maria Novella train station you can take bus 11 or 17 which stops a block away from the hotel. If you're coming from the airport the cost of the taxi is ~25 euro (always negotiate price before you get in the taxi). The crowning touch of the hotel was the breakfast which was fresh and had a ton of variety including a cappacino/coffee machine that you could use. Tables were set up outside in the hotel's garden to eat breakfast in the gorgeous greenery.
