Single room was simple but comfortable, with a very nice view of the garden area. Being in a room in the corner next to the elevator felt strange but not an issue in the slightest. Really love the Renaissance and Baroque feels in and around the hotel, breakfast and bar area very nice and I can imagine the pool is nice in the summertime when open. A minor down side to the room was I couldn't make enough ideal space to sit by the desk in order to work and write etc. The location is also ideal, a 5/10 minute walk from the station straight along the Via Nazionale and in a good location to explore the centre of Florence and the area by the cathedral.

Great value! Spacious property for lounge and breakfast area. One of the better breakfasts that we experience this 11 day trip to Italy for the price. Helpful and amiable staff. Equal distance to Station, Duomo/Punto Vecchio. Generous pool area closed for winter, would have been an excellent summer stay.
