We stayed for 1 night at the AC Firenze and were very happy. It is about a 10 min walk into the main part of Florence but there is a bus (c2 and c3) close by and the tram (t1) takes you right to the train station. My husband is a platinum elite member and we were able to check in at 1100 and checked out the next day at 1500. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and they even wished my husband a happy birthday. They said our room would be ready in about 5 min and asked if we would please wait (they later told us this was a lie but they needed to say something so we would wait). They then brought out a slice of cake and sung him happy birthday in english. It was a nice touch.
