“very good and convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

Centrally located hotel in the beggining of the north part of the historic core of the city. Walking distance (10-15 minutes ) to all sites .Very well decorated rooms and those in the 5th floor with huge balcony.The street outside is partly pedestrianized which adds a bonus to the hotel appearance. They welcome you with a glass of champain. They don't have parking but cooperate with a garage across the street who take care the car with 35 Euro per night. Yes the parking is at premium in Florence

Room Tip: ask foe rooms on the 5th floor with balcony.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

We could not be more impressed with the experience AND VALUE at this property. The rooms are large and clean. The staff is as friendly and professional as any property we have stayed at anywhere in the world. The location is about 10 minutes from the Duomo and the center of Florence, but, as a result, we enjoyed the relative peace and quiet you do not get when at "ground zero" in Florence. The property is still very convienient for museum hopping and shopping.

For getting around town or for siteseeing, the hotel offers a free courtesy car (that we used 5 times over two days). They take you wherever you need to go and pick you up.

From a cost standpoint, this property was 25% less expensive than others closer to the center of Florence. Not only are the rooms a much better value, but you actually get Ritz Carlton like treatment from the staff. They absolutely make you feel like they want you to come back.

"Try it, You'll like it" ..... I cannot recommend a property more highly for siteseeing in Florence (and this is my 4th trip in 12 months.... as we have a son in school here).

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade on checkin!!

Helpful, quietly attentive staff, well appointed and decorated room with a balcony and a small but relaxing garden - apart from having the peace disturbed by the pigeons. It was impossible to have a drink or eat outside because of them, a real negative.

My Fiance & I stayed here only for a night ...what a pity !this hotel was like a dream... such an exclusive hotel right in the middle of the town ! we went to Florance without prebooking any place !!!!! and since in Italy September is high season this was like a nightmare ! we came out of the train station and we faced that even if there's a good place to stay its so expensive ! so by walking in the streets of that area we found this luxury hotel under such a reasonable price !!!!! this was like a dream... such a Beautiful hotel with impeccable service and respectable staff . grreat room , great bathroom , greattttttt bed :)
The only weak point was that breakfast was not included with our room and we should pay 30 EUR for the hotels breakfast !!!! which wasn't a big deal as we checked to see if its worth it !
but after all staying in this luxurious hotel was a perfect experience ... specially with your love :)
