Myself and 14 year old son stayed here for a few days, as Florence was somewhere I always wanted to come, and ideal for a history hungry teenager who's appetite for Florence was awakened by an Xbox game called assasins creed.
We arrived late ish , about 12 am. The room was stiflingly hot, but we were told no air con until April 15th, so Windows were flung open all night.ALso, we had to request a kettle and coffee every night. They took them away everyday and didn't replace them.After asking for the hot drink equipment, it would take on average an hour and a half to arrive.
Breakfasts were fine, and the room clean and comfortable.
The,location of the hotel was,very convenient, and only about a mile from the Duomo.
I had made a booking with British airways for flight and hotel together, however on check out, I was still presented for a bill for nearly 400 euro.WHen I refused to pay the bed and breakfast charges and presented the receptionist with my pre paid voucher, he asked me how they were going to be paid, as British airways had not paid them?
I told him that on no account was I going to be paying twice, and that the hotel should contact them.A shame it had to end our otherwise great trip like this, with such a bad mistake.
Florence is such a beautiful city. Go.
