We selected L' Orologio on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. On the contrary; it was better than expected.The hotel is at the corner of the square and an easy walking distance from the train station - with roller bags no taxi was required. We were given room 502 on the top floor (it has three rooms only on that floor) and what a surprise: we opened the curtains and from our window we had a spectacular view of Brunellesci's dome just a couple of blocks away. The hotel is a boutique hotel with really well decorated comfortable public spaces (especially the library) and very helpful staff. We stayed for five days. It has nice exercise and sauna facilities in the basement (we did not use them since Florence is a walking city - lots of exercise). The buffet breakfasts were good and the staff very attentive. Old building totally gutted and reconstructed inside. The clock motif was different and well done. The room was well appointed with nice little touches (automatic lights in the closets, fully appointed bathroom, and so forth.) This will be our choice hotel in future trips to Florence.
