The Guadagni is perfectly situated away from the tourist madness that Florence has become in recent years. P.San Spirito is similar to Trastevere in Rome- out of the way but close to everything.
I found the hotel to be excellent in every respect. Sitting on the third floor balcony on a eighty degree day in April looking at the snow in the distant mountains was incomprable.
The staff is superb!
To those who wrote that the rooms were 'spartan'; all I have to say is 'you're in Florence! If you want fancy decor stay at home or go to a Best Western.
The Guadagni provides an authentic stay in one of the world's most historic cities. I felt the hotel accentuated the feeling of being in Florence and would be hard to improve upon. I debated whether or not I should not keep this gem a personal secret and not post but these folks deserve credit.
