Everything about Florence is expensive. It is a city that makes its money from tourism. So the Cosmopolitan was a pleasant surprise. Clean and comfortable, with a simple bus ride into the city and also really convenient for the airport, it is something of a find. The room, a superior one, had a small antechamber with a desk and chair, then a short hall past the bathroom, into the bedroom. It wasn't spacious - and the use of the space could have been better - but the bed and pillows were comfortable, the linens of good quality cotton and it was very clean.
Breakfast was included in the price, as was wifi. Three niggles: (1) this was Florence but the quality of the coffee at breakfast was very poor, surely easily fixed. (2) On the first day we went down for breakfast about 40 mins before the breakfast closed and it was quiet but there was also very little food left. (3) Wifi wasn't as strong as it could be, it is an essential now when travelling, especially on business.
One other drawback, the buses back from the centre of the city - three routes past the hotel - seem to stop running at 23.20, so you either have a 50 minute walk or you find a taxi (which isn't easy, so best to get the restaurant or bar that you are enjoying to book you one!
Final thing, the front desk team were excellent.
