I stayed here with my partner and inlaws for 2 nights in August. I have mixed feelings about this place. It is very central (less than 100 m from the Dome) and it only cost us 60 euro per night for a double room, including breakfast. This is a bargain in Florence! Our room was big enough and clean (Well, cleanish), but dated. One of our main concerns when booking was aircondition, we didn't even look at places without aircon. But here, the air conditioning was only on for a little while during the night. We commented at reception, but the man there didn't really care. So the room was very hot, and very stuffy. Opening windows only helps a little, and then you have the noice from the street and the bells in the Dome.
I was a little concerned about security. The hotel is on the third floor I think, and if I remember correctly the entrance onto the street is open during the day, and has a code during the night. You have to leave your key at reception, and when we were going out the first evening the man at reception said that if we come back very late, he might have a nap in the next room, and would leave our key on the reception desk... Not what I call security, but we were never out late, so it wasn't really a problem.
As others have commented, I think this is a family owned hotel. The man at reception was leisurely dressed to say the least- all in all, this hotel doesn't exactly scream professionalism.
The breakfast was served in a small room by reception. It was poor, and I was a bit concerned about hygiene.
There is a guest computer with internet. I think there is meant to be free wireless, but it didn't work in our room- it did work in reception though.
The redeeming features about this hotel is obviously the price and the location. If you are going to Florence for a night or two, it will do you. But I was pleased to leave.
