We stayed here in March 2009 for 2 nights.
As some of the other reviewers have said the hotel is located about 2 mins walk from the train station on the main road and about 10 mins walk to Duomo and the rest of the main Florence attrations the area around the hotel also has some great places to eat and at responable prices - try Lobs Fish Restaurant, which we thought was excellent!
Anyway back to the hotel..... The decore is very modern and its all very clean and nice, with flat screen TV's (athough only Italian TV Stations). We found the staff to be very helpful and the lobby had a PC with internet access, which was very useful, and breakfast was included, which was nice.
Our room was on the main road and had a nice set of big double doors which opened onto a small balcony, I was initally concerned about noise from the road, but the doors were double glazed and blocked out almost all of the road and traffic noise.
I only have two complaints, one being that although the room featured AC and it wasnt really hot you were not actually allowed to use it! I've found this is the case in alot of Italian hotels, I'm guessing electricity must be really expensive! The other one is something that isnt really the hotels fault and I guess we were just unlucky, but the people in the next room were really loud and left the TV on till the late into the night!
Overall if I was to stay in Florence again I would definetly reconmend this hotel
