Great location, we arrived by train to the SMN station and made an easy 150m walk to the hotel location right on the Santa Maria Novella square. On arrival the place looks very classy with the Rolex collectibles and memorabilia on display everywhere. Greeted by friendly and helpful staff who all had good working English and offered assistance with local restaurants and directions.
Rooms were very spacious and the bathrooms grand with great showers and even bidets.
Breakfast was a buffet of high quality and replenished often. Staff at breakfast were a bit aloof and a friendly greeting or a smile would have been great, especially after the great welcome by reception.
Location is fantastic, we walked to all of the sites we wanted to see and there are many choices to eat nearby. You MUST eat at La Bottega Di Rosa on Via Del Campidoglio and have the Bistecca, without doubt the best thing I ate in a month in Europe.
Highly recommend this hotel and would defiantly stay there again.
