True to it's history of a Convent, the place offers basic accommodation. I would have thought that for the price we paid, it would be a bit nicer .... but I guess it was part of the Summer pricing madness.
The hotel is quite a bit away from the city centre. So, if you are arriving late to the train station, you may need to get a Taxi, costing you somewhere near 15 Euros. While everything in Florence is about 10 minutes away from each other, it may be a 20-30 minutes walk from the hotel to reach the city centre - just a measure of why I call it far from the city centre.
The rooms are tiny. The bathroom is quite large in comparison. But a striking feature was that the shower enclosure inside the bathroom was so small that even for a slightly built person as me, moving my arms around was a challenge. If you are big, either find out whether they have a room with a large shower area or you don't want to be in this hotel.
Breakfast is basic and served efficiently. Don't expect room service or in room mini bar. You can of course buy water from the reception desk where the staff are always helpful and friendly. Wifi is free and efficient.
