Great location, not so great bathroom.
The location of the hotel is great but the actual room a letdown. The room (in this case Botticelli) was ok sized with one double and one single bed and a private bathroom. Maybe because of the rather quirky the room at first felt bit dirty and run down but after the first night we were handling it ok. The main problem is the bathroom which is tiny. I do not understand the obsession to install a bidet to already too small bathroom, it would make more sense to make the shower bigger. Also, the towels were of the thinnest possible material, quite useless for drying your hair. The sink is miniature sized and bathroom shelf wonky. AC is hard to adjust to a desired level, it is either too cold or not cold enough. There is no elevator in the hotel building and you need to climb steep stairs to reach the reception. The reception is unmanned after maybe 20:00 in the evening so if you are planning to check-in after hours it is better to contact the management beforehand for arrangements. As mentioned the hotel is superbly located: About 7 minutes walk to SMN train station, 5 to Duomo, maybe 10 to Ponte Vecchio. The location is basically bordering the old town with lots of restaurants and shopping nearby.

Hotel Abaco
The hotel is in a great location, close to the train station and many of the tourist sites. We stayed in the room with two twin beds. We had our own bathroom, but it was not in the room itself, but rather across the hall. It ended up ok for us as the hotel is small so we almost never saw anyone when we went to the bathroom, but still it required being appropriately dressed to do so. The beds were also a little narrower than normal twin beds, which was fine for us but would've been tricky for someone larger. The air conditioning worked great. The wifi was not very good, but we rarely had good wifi in Italy. Breakfast was only bread products, juice and coffee, but the croissants were delicious and the plain black coffee extremely good as well. The woman who greeted us and serves the breakfast speaks only limited English, but we managed to communicate. Overall, for a clean and comfortable place to stay in a great location, I would highly recommend it.

Just take the breakfast. Many stairs. Comfortable
This was a cute hotel, and that is why I picked it. Very close to train station and in the middle of everything you want to be near. I didn’t know (and was shocked) that it is on the 3rd floor of a very large building. You have to walk up 7 half flights of stairs. It’s a lot of work. However, it seems all of the hotels are that way. There is no elevator so if you need one, look for a larger hotel that has one. One bed was very comfy and one bed consisted of 2 cots and was difficult to sleep in. It’s hit or miss. Very cute rooms, fun bathrooms, AC that works, WiFi, great view. If you don’t want to be up for breakfast (crossaints) 8-10am, tell them or some lady will knock on your door to wake you up. No cappuccino after 9:30. Owner (very nice man) allowed us to check in hours early which was very helpful. You will have a wonderful stay if you accept your breakfast.

Great service
The owner was especially helpful to me. I parked outside the city wall as the city streets are limited to residents. On check in, he told me I could park in a designated place in the city but I was tired and confused by the map and directions. So he offered to go to my car and ride along. When we parked in front of the hotel to drop our bags, he insisted on carrying our luggage. Then he got back in the car and helped me find the right parking area. He had lots of recommendations for dinner too. So friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is in a very cute cafe just a few doors down. Nice breakfast and beautiful view of the countryside.

We enjoyed being in the centre of Florence and when we stepped out of the hotel, we could see the Duomo. We liked staying in a period hotel. There are a lot of steps but that didn't bother us. Please note the hotel is within the restricted traffic zone so if arriving by car, park for 1 hour in the parking opposite the bus station which costs E4 and walk to the hotel (under 10 mins) to offload luggage, then go and repark outside the city. The nearest unlimited parking was 2.5 miles away in the Bobbini area. Probably best to use public transport.
