Very nice hotel
Posted Jul 10, 2012
As long as you are not expecting the Ritz-Carlton, you should be happy with this hotel. It is a short walk from the SMN train station and is near the Tourist Office (hint: buy the Florence Card -- it is a great deal and essentially is a VIP pass into nearly all of the museums; no need to pre-book visits and no waiting in lines). Mary and her son Antonio were very helpful and accommodating, providing tips on what to visit in Florence, providing a fan for the room (because the air conditioning unit was not too effective), and holding our bags until we left on the evening train. The room we had was clean and spacious, towels were changed daily, and beds made up daily as well. The only drawbacks (in addition to the air conditioning unit) were that the room we had faced the street and so it was a little noisy at nights, and there is an 'open' shower so much of the bathroom floor gets wet when showering. Nonetheless, this is a nice hotel and reasonably priced. I would stay here when visiting Florence again.
