We stayed at the Caravaggio during our stay in Florence (three nights)...and were duely impressed. As soon as we pulled up to the entrance and walked in we were greeted by the front desk attendant who was able to provide answers to the numerous questions we bombarded him with; Where is a good restaurant? Is an ATM nearby? Do you have the number for a tourguide for Florence? Taxi service info etc... We found our room to be a pleasant surprise as well, located on the third floor (elevator access is provided) it was spotless. The queen sized bed was comfortable with numerous pillows and a thick comfortor to keep you warm during the late autumn nights of Tuscany. The bathroom was large enough to accomodate my 6' frame and the shower was immaculate. There was a small fridge in the room to allow for storing drinks or small sundry groceries. The courtyard was extremely nice and was a great place to sit with company and talk about the days activities over a nice drink. The Caravaggio also has a breakfast area and was stocked with a variety of deli meats, cheeses, juices, pastries and espresso machines. The location is fantastic as it's within walking distance from the train station and is about a 15-20 minute walk to the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Galleria Dell'Accademia and the Bronze Boar in the Mercato Nuovo. There is also a park in front of the Caravaggio that is a relaxing place to sit and just take in the evening atmosphere that is Firenze. If you need to access the web to print out reservations, there is a business room with desktops and printers available next to the front desk. Overall this was an enjoyable stay for under 90 Euro a night and I can't wait to return.
