This hotel was pretty difficult to find. We found the street, but the numbers are all out of order, so we pretty much knocked on every door on the street asking for this hotel. In the night however, you can probably see it quite easily from the tacky neon lit sign. When we walked in, I was pretty disappointed from what I saw from the photos, but sheets and bathroom were clean, which were most important. The decor was just very dated.
The location is wonderful. From the breakfast room, you can see a small sliver of the Duomo, which is great when you want to take a mid-day shower. Breakfast was included, and it was pretty good, with coffees, teas, fruit, pastries, salami and cheeses, yogourt, etc
One thing to note though is that the staff is completely useless. We asked for directions to a restaurant, and the young man pointed us in the complete wrong direction... we asked the hotel to book advanced tickets to Uffizi and they couldn't, and didn't follow up on it, so we had no idea whether it was booked or not. Only the morning staff (the manager) handled things, so if you asked anyone else, they weren't able to help. We asked to change the room because the air conditioning wasn't strong enough and was told to ask the manager the next morning, we asked about the Chianti wine tours, and they didn't know the price, etc
Overall, we think this hotel was pretty reasonable, it was good value. If they had free internet access I would be tempted to give it a 4-star considering its price but the lack of internet and service did prove to be a little inconvenient.
