Hi, My boyfriend and I are looking for a pool to use for the day in Florence. Do you have to be staying here to use the pool or could we pay to use it and buy lunch here too? Thanks Thanks

    Dear Alice S., thank you for having contacted us. The swimming pool is only for hotel resident. The pool bar is open for non-resident, every day from 7.00pm. Best regards, Filippo
