we stayed here 4 nights in sept 2013. this room had a fridge and a kettle, china cups. 2 things that i love in a room. the breakfast was not included and was overpriced so we did not have it.
the hotel and rooms are new and very nice, and bigger than european rooms. l more like an american hotel. the staff were great.
the hotel is located about a 15 min drive from the train station in florence. they have a free shuttle that goes back and forth about very hour , but not between 1;30 -4 pm., and then until 10;30. so, you have to plan your day accordingly. at night the shuttle back to the hotel was every hour, so we usually went back at 8;30 pm.
the free wifi was only available in the lobby, not in your room.
there is a grocery store at the end of the block across from the train station so we just bought food for breakfast and brought it back and put it in the fridge. there is nothing where the hotel is. very residential.
they give you excellent instructions if you want to take public transportation to the train station and we did it twice. for 2 euro each, because we felt we needed to leave the hotel earlier to get our train. it took about 15 -20 min tops. and was easy. i would stay there again.
