The hotel is located ~20 walk to the center of Florence, maybe 30-40 minutes to further away sites. For the price, it was great to be within walking distance of all that Florence has to offer. The room itself was spacious and clean and equipped with AC , but the walls were thin and we could easily hear neighbors. Breakfast was adequate to get the day started and the cappuccino was a nice touch. The bed was somewhat uncomfortable and the pillows were very flat. These were minor inconveniences though. The main issue I had with the hotel was that the door to get in the building and also into the hotel are locked at night and reception needs to let you in. Reception is only until 12, and so a late European meal with a long walk home was often cutting it close. He let us borrow the key one night "just in case" but it seems odd to have to request the owner's key in order to come back to your hotel room. It also seems that only one guest at a time (of ~12) would have this privilege. I'm not sure I would stay again mostly for this reason.
