Very happy with my stay here.
The front desk & kitchen staff were able to provide me with a breakfast for the road, as two of my tours started very early. Their efforts made my mornings run very smoothly. If you don't mind walking a little bit, the hotel has a great location. 15 minutes to the train station, 12 to the bus station (where tours leave from). 15 or so to Galleria d'Academia and 25 to the Duomo. The one thing...very tiny...there was no easily accessible outlet in my room.

Great hotel and it is close to the attractions- about 15 mins all on the flat. Staff really helpful and great breakfast. Large room but needed some TLC. Beds comfortable and the room very clean. Overall a good stay.
