Perfect accommodations for people who plan on only using their rooms to sleep in. Florence is full of places to go and things to see so having a nice comfortable and clean bed at the end of the day should be all you need from your hostel/hotel. It is very close to the train station (6 minute walk) and close to a bakery and a grocery store. It is a 10 minute walk to the Duomo and has 24 hour reception so you can come and go as you please. We also got a very good restaurant recommendation from the staff.
The only negative thing I can think of is that the doors slam pretty violently and the sound is very booming (or it did on the topmost floor). It is impossible to sleep in when your fellow building occupants are coming and going from their rooms but at least you'll be up early to enjoy Florence.
