Stayed here for a few nights while in Italy on vacation, and used this as our base for the Tuscany/Florence portion. The hotel itself was great - it's one that actually looks a lot better/nicer in person than it does on their website pictures. Nice and clean and modern (yet not ultra-modern) touches throughout, and an extremely friendly, professional, and willing-to-help staff across the board. Everyone with whom we spoke was very professional - front desk, housekeeping, lounge, etc. If you do have lounge access, the food for breakfast and dinner were tasty and plentiful. Great views from the top of the hotel all the way around on the outside patio with seating. The room was decent size and had plenty of room to put suitcases, bathroom items, etc. without taking up precious floor space. Ample closet room and oversized bathroom (for a European hotel) were very nice touches.
The only thing about the hotel that isn't optimal is its location - we took taxis - about 17 Euros each way, and another 30 Euros to the airport - to and from the Florence center each day (we didn't have a car, and not easy to use public transportation from here to get to the center) which did add up, but this was offset by the good rates we got during the time to stay here. That's a pretty minor nit to an otherwise excellent stay and hotel, I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone I know staying in Florence.
