We stayed here for 2 nights with a family of 4 (2 teenagers). It was very nice…sleek and modern. It was an easy walk from the train station and an equally easy walk to all of Florence’s big sights. Breakfast was very good. They have a classy-looking bar downstairs although we didn’t get a chance to use it.
As a sidebar…I emailed the hotel and they made reservations for us at the Accademia and Uffizi…that worked fine. However, anyone that does this needs to be fully aware of what is paid for in this process. The hotel provided us with museum reservation paperwork…and told us, at the time, that we would need to “pay cash” at the museums, but upon checkout, one of the other staff members expected us to pay (at the front desk) for both the reservations and admission to these museums. She maintained that the “reservation” included admission…this was not the case at the museums where both museums required me to pay when I was there. The hotel made us a reservation and that was it…not admission. I sorted it out with the hotel staff (I had receipts from the museums), but I thought there was going to be a throw down. That shouldn’t dissuade anyone from the hotel…it was just a sidebar about fully understanding what you’ve paid for.
