This is an absolute gem of a hotel. Tucked off the street opposite a Louis Vuitton!
It's quaint but majestic.
We arrived in the morning after previously checking out of another hotel and our room wasn't quite ready. But Leonardo checked us in and took our bags for safe keeping and showed us on a map where things were. He was so helpful and kind which you don't often find anymore.
When we returned about an hour later (I needed to change my shoes)
Our room was ready and we were taken up.
It was spectacular. It's beautifully decorated and laid out.
The location is brilliant as it's walking distance from everything. It's right on the main bit for shopping (have read some people say it's too near the high end shops, can't see how that's a problem) the savoy hotel is close by which is fabulous for dinner (another review) and it's about a 10-15 minute walk away from the museum which is home to the statue of David.
I'm just sad I only got to spend one night here, I hope to return one day because it really is a beautiful hotel.
