Others may disagree with me, but I struggle to think of a better location in the city of Florence. The hotel is located inside Piazza della Signoria, next to the Uffizi and Palazzo Vecchio. There are fantastic restaurants and bars within stumbling distance, including some of the top rated places on Tripadvisor. Accademia is a short 15 minute walk, over which you get to see some of the great sites of the city. Ponte Vecchio is 5 minutes away.
The hotel itself is very nice - the staff are quite friendly, the rooms are very large and clean and quiet. The free Wi-Fi is a plus. The one point of difficulty I had was getting access to the place at night when I was first checking in (before I had the key) - there were instructions to dial a number and press a button, which I never did ever figure out and more or less just lucked into it. Minor wrinkle in an otherwise great experience!

- The Soggiorno Antica Torre is located in the heart of the city, in the most famous piazza in Florence: the Piazza Signoria.
