We recently visited Florence for 5 days and stayed at the L'Orologio. For some reason we were upgraded and given a room with a roof terrace facing the Duomo, which was obviously fabulous!
However, this aside, I would recommend the hotel. It is fantastically located, close to the train station and 6-7mins walk from the Duomo, but despite being situated so conveniently, it was not noisy.
In addition, the staff were very helpful, particularily in relation to offering to book restaurants for us. They booked restaurants for us on every night, one that we requested and a number that they suggested, and they were all fabulous.
The hotel bar is also worth a little visit!
Some of the reviews I read suggested problems with the breakfast buffet, but I have to admit we had no issue during our stay. The selection was relatively basic, but more than adequate, and the views from the 4th floor room were fabulous.
