An old fashioned but absolutely updated hotel on Piazza Santa Maria Novella..... so luxurious and accommodating. And the view is to die for! There’s even a rooftop sitting area where you can enjoy the sights and a bottle of wine in the evening (you can buy the wine at the hotel

Stayed here during a conference. Pictures make this place look quaint and charming. If you like that, this is the place for you. Don't expect modern. Our room was spacious and high ceilings making it feel open. Room has a 'hot' towel rack, looks like running off the boiler

Sadly, the only thing I can review is the total absence of flexibility and customer service. Was meant to check in today for a business meeting tomorrow but one of our party's flight was cancelled so they will be arriving in Florence tomorrow. I called this morning to try and

Dear Madame, as informed also privately by email, we are sorry to receive your message. We are sorry to know that you had to cancel the reservations made for you and for your colleague, due to problems on the flight on the arrival date, that are not depending from you but not even from the hotel. You choose reservations with discounted rates with prepaid and Not refundable policy and unfortunately as informed by phone and by e-mail we cannot modify them. We generally have good feedback from our guest also concerning our customer service. We are sorry that in this case we cannot satisfy your request. We remain with our best regards.

Yes, they are super helpful. They are not guides, however so I would use something like Trip Advisor., etc and have an idea before you go about what you are interested in. I think they would be better suited to tell you which is better than the other, etc - for instance - a lot of things you can do without a guide.

Unless you are specifically looking for two bedrooms - the family room might be just fine! We easily slept three, with plenty of room for luggage and relaxation. There is a room which has a roof top spot with view. Not sure if room number. Excellent lodging choice.

Yes, small room with a couple of cardio machines. Not a full gym, just something to work off a few calories...

The easiest way from the hotel to the Piazza Demidoff?
Sadly (and now a bit late) from here i could not but when i travel i always use google maps. Internet is pretty cheap now once you organise the right tariff and network. I think most hotels in the area (and most areas) also have little maps of the area that show the hotel and the main attractions around the city.

"Ask for room facing the square with view of Santa Maria church."
"The Superior View rooms are not much extra, and the view is worth it."
"A fifth floor room overlooking the square."
"Terrific views from the rooftop deck, and an amazing wine tour was arranged via the front desk. Great walking location!."
