The location of the hotel is right on Piazza Santa Maria, which is just a few minutes walk away from the main attractions of Firenze. The location is excellent.
Most parts of the hotel are excellent with just a few flaws. The deluxe room was spacious and well equipped, the bathroom was very nice and big, hallways delicately decorated with clock-themes and expensive-looking furniture and couches, the reception very professional and the breakfast with a very good selection and good service.
The internet connection also should be mentioned, as it is the best we have experienced in any hotel so far. Free, and works great. The hotel is in a very silent location and has very good air conditioning system It also has a european plug in the room, and radio in the room. A great addition! The people working here are also very helpful and service minded. There is even a coffee machine in the room! (have not seen that too often).
All in all, this is an excellent hotel.
What should be mentioned as minus is that some reviewers have said that the hotel rooms are small. Check what kind of room you are getting, deluxe or standard? We def. recommend picking a deluxe or superb room. The room was fairly dark, with no light in the roof - making light very dim.
The absolutely biggest minus though is trying to find the hotel. The sign is tiny and just to the right of the door. This is so easy to do something with and the management of the hotel should really get a larger sign to help people find it. Driving to get here is a nightmare.
Besides that we have had a great stay here and we will return here if we ever come back to Firenze. Check also out our pictures which we have posted. The hotel has some of the most fancy and rich interior of any hotel we have ever visited.
