This hotel is situated about 5 minutes walk from the Vittoria bridge so basically at one end of Florence. It was about 10-15 minutes to walk to the Vecchio bridge but as the sites are quite spread out around Florence and you plan to see them, then you will be doing some walking anyway so it's position was fine by us and it was peaceful.
The rooms were bijou but fab. As you walked into the room you had a mosaic tiled purple bathroom with large walk in shower to the right. You walk down a corridor of a mirrored wall and a wardrobe on the right then into the main room which had padded tiled walls with fibre optic lighting. The space was small but the funky design made up for it. Very cool.
In the evening they have free finger food on the bar. All drinks seem to be 5 Euros wherever you go, from wine, beer and coke etc so although quite expensive especially for the latter, no more so than anywhere else. In fact, the coffee was the cheapest we found, at the hotel at 3 Euros over everywhere else was around 4.
Breakfast was a buffet but good quality food from fruit salad, cereal, pastries/cakes, cold meats and cheese and hotel breakfast selections. Coffee however you liked it, or tea, all made to order rather than having to use a dispenser as with many hotels.
The only downside was that the airconditioning wasn't great, it seemed to revert back to 'off' after a while but it wasn't too disasterous and outside did get up to 30 degrees.
A shuttle bus takes you to the main station, timings generally morning and then from 4.30 in the afternoon.
Very enjoyable stay, would definitely recommend.
