We absolutely loved this place. We were originally booked for the Diana Park Hotel, which was quite a ways away, and although we had a reservation, they ended up not having a room for us once we got there, so they sent us to the Strozzi. It was truly a blessing, seeing as it is located right in downtown Florence, quite literally a 5 minute walk from the Duomo and about a 10-15 minute walk away from the Academia. The staff was very friendly, spoke [some] English, and were knowledgeable about the surrounding sites and restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised to find that internet connection is provided in all the rooms free of charge, as well. Fabulous hotel.
Directions: It is about 5 minutes from the Duomo.
Nice hotel, but the window (and shutter) was bolted shut in the first room they put me in. The only window that would open (or gave me sunlight) was the little slip of a window in the bathroom.
Otherwise, the room I was eventually placed in was nice and spacious. Breakfast was nice - good caffe' and more importantly the hotel was about 2 blocks or so from the Duomo and in the middle of town. It was a wonderful location and the people at the hotel were kind and accomodating.
Just a word of advice - if you are checking out before 7 am (before the regular day staff gets in - don't forget to remind the night auditor to return your passport to you). The hotel had to fax a copy of my passport to the airline at Fiumicino Airport when I realized I didn't get my possport back upon checkout. The hotel was very acomodating in sending me my passport to my home yet they seemed as if this was a slightly regular occurance for them.
