Booked a double-room for three nights. It is indeed a short drive from Florence (about 10-15 minutes). We used it as a base to drive from.
Parking can be tight on busy nights, but I never had a problem finding a spot for the night.
The room is basic but comfortable. The bed very comfortable and (importantly for a tall person) no foot-board. The windows are large and open fully which makes a change. the aircon is powerful. The blackout curtains are very think and thankfully cut out all light. The shower is one of the strongest I've enjoyed. The hotel staff are helpful and friendly. The pool and pool-side bar looked great, though we never had time to use them
The only gripe possibly is the door/inside wall are too thin and you get too much noise from the corridor on busy days
Italian 4-star seem quite different from a 4-star in, say, Bangkok / Sharm-el-Sheikh which are palatial by comparison, but this does the job, is clean and affordable (which means you spend more of your money on the car / excursions), and after reading the reviews, I was happily surprised
