Florence is a delight, and this hotel is nearly wonderful, but.....
We had too many (albeit minor) niggles, that would be disappointing in cheaper and less aspiring hotels; room not made up at 4pm, shower tiles needing repair, limited access to the (beautiful) veranda because of a large 'event'- no doubt to further publicise the hotel, etc. Maybe I sound unreasonable- but remember the size of the bill!
The 'ambassador' idea is fine, but we ended up dealing with 5 different people over three days; not really the personal service they claim.
Grounds are beautiful (but too many weeds in the formal areas). Views over Florence make the location perfect.
Acid test- sorry, but when we go back, we'll try another hotel.
