My wife and I decided to spoil ourselves and stay here for 3 nights after staying in a different part of the city. The hotel is located in the Duomo section of Florence and is about a 2 min walk away from the Duomo. It is tucked away a little bit and it is in a nice area as well. I booked initially because they had a winter special with a free upgrade. Upon arriving at the hotel I was told that we were being upgraded again to a junior suite from a deluxe room. So needless to say the room was outstanding, it was two stories, with a loft area on the second floor. I've stayed in several luxury hotels and this hotel ranked up there with them. The room was very quiet which is important and they had free wifi. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very nice as well.
The staff was friendly and willing to assist in anyway possible. We wanted to go to the Uffizi the next day and were unable to book tickets online. I asked the front desk to see if they could get reservations and 5 mins later I was told they had booked tickets for us. We also had a problem with the bathroom and someone was sent up 2 min later to help my wife with a switch. On another note we used the spa at one point, it is simple, a turkish bath with jets, steam room, sauna, and two showers with different features. Nothing that will blow you away but certainly a relaxing area to decompress after business or sightseeing.
Overall I would stay here again and I would recommend to anyone who has the chance to stay here as well. You will pay a little more but you will get a good night's sleep as well so in my eyes it is worth it.
