This hotel is rated as a 4 star but in my opinion should be a 5 star. It is a recently renovated old Florentine Palazzo that has been converted to a hotel and they did it right!
The hotel means watch or clock in italian and the hotel theme is all about high end watches. Each room has a name of a famous maker watch. Our's was the "Explorer" by Rolex. The room sizes are huge for European standards and the bathrooms very luxurious and BIG. Full size bath tub , rainshower.. Very nice amenities. The location is great right on the Piazza Santa Maria de Formosa, walking distance to the train station. It could get a bit noisy after the bars closed, we could hear people walking on the streets and there is alot of people that hang out on the piazza at night, people watching +++.
We definately will come back. The staff was very knowledgable and friendly. The hotel's breakfast room is very nice with a view of the piazza, Great food selections. You will not be disappointed with this property!
