We just stayed for one night on the way to Rome from Paris. Booked via Venere.com and no surprises. We reached Florence at 8am via Paris->Rome night train. The hotel is just a stone throw (really that close) from the Termini station. Despite being close, it was not noisy because the hotel was in the backstreet. Being close to the train station, you can catch the hop-on buses and have access to tour companies quick.
The hotel is in the 3rd and 4th floor of this address along with few other hotels in the same building. Elevator is a joke and be warned that a big line may be waiting for both up/down directions. The building is kind of old but clean with Roman facade like any other in Florence.
The lady at the front desk is very cordial and real nice person. We booked two rooms and she pleasantly surprised us that she can make one room ready so that we can dump our bags and take shower (remember it was 9am) and second room by noon. Wow; that was nice.
Ours were 4 bedded family rooms. The room was huge with high ceiling. It is not typical European you would expect. Old, grand, huge with tall windows, old mosaic flooring and big bath - one nasty surprise was the shower stall was tiny (real tiny that you cant bend and touch your feet while taking shower. Have fun!!!
Breakfast is ok and you will be satisfied unless you're a picky traveler. We checked out early next day and went out to explore before coming back to collect the bags for our train to Rome at 4pm. Again our bags were kept safely and no surprises. In total it was nice stay and our big credit goes to the lady at the front desk who was smiling, caring, very helpful -very lovely person. Forgot her name and she made our stay so wonderful. My wife spend 5 minutes writing a big thank you note to her ;)
Florence is kind of small town and you can walk to most attractions from the hotel. Good,authentic italian restaurants nearby.
