Considering this was the most expensive hotel we booked for our time in italy we were disapointed with the actual hotel for the price we paid the ammenities were not as good. But it was fine if all you need is a small, clean room. The other hotels we stayed at in italy were cheaper and had brand new amenities and had lovely pools and were very modern and well equiped with free internet etc. The staff were not overly helpful, but seemed pleasant
This hotel is a bit old and needed a bit of an update, there was few amenities and the rooms were quite small compared to where we have stayed
The breakfast was also probably the smallest selection we have had in our holidays aswell. There was no where to go to relax during the day other than your room, the terrace overlooking a bit of florence is only open for a few hours at night.
The rooms were clean though. They charged us to use internet which was one of the only places we stayed that did.
However the location is excellent, so i guess you pay for the location for this one, its about a 2 minute walk to the main street, its so central, the train station is also less than a 5 minute walk away, as are plenty of resturants. You can walk everywhere within a couple of minutes in florence. so the location is convenient and this makes up for the actual hotel
