The Domus Florentiae Hotel has a great location for its price, just 5-min walk from the train station and you can get to most of Florence's major attractions within 15 min on foot. My stay was a pleasant one because the room I got (deluxe) was quite spacious for an Italian hotel. There were 2 single beds + a day bed in the room and the bathroom had room to stand & walk without knocking stuff off the sink.
Since it was away from the main square, it was quiet & less crowded. Breakfast was simple (Italian style), bread, cheese, fruits & espresso drinks, which is great for me.
Unique Qualities: I had a semi view of the Santa Maria Novella because the window shutter hid most of the view. There is an internet cafe just beside the hotel which is great when you need to send emails or check your VT page!
Getting to most attractions is fast & easy on foot, the Duomo, Piazza del Signora & Ponte Vecchio are minutes away. There are also a couple of restaurants & pizzerias close to the hotel so you won't be denied of food.
Address: Via degli Avelli 2, , Florence, Tuscany 50123
Comparison: about average
Directions: From the train station, walk towards Santa Maria Novella cathedral, make a right to the square & the hotel is on the left next to the internet cafe
