My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in May 2012. This was our first trip to Florence. We were able to walk to the hotel with our suitcases from the train station. The hotel is centrally located. Our room was very clean and quiet. We had two windows. The one in the bathroom looked into a building and the one in the bedroom looked onto a red tile roof. This did allow for sunlight to come into the room. The thermostat is set on a certain temp. Consequently, we needed to open the windows. There were no screens. This was a problem as bugs came into the room and I ended up with mosquito bites. If the room had screens, my rating would have been much better. The free wifi is great. We ate at Il Parione and the accademia. These are two great restaurants.
