This hotel takes up the top two floors of a historic palazzo (dated 1500) plus a little residencia on the first floor. The building is very old and atmospheric - definitely not run of the mill. Our room was in the lower separate part - which wasnt a problem but you definitely felt you were not 'in the hotel'. The room was vast with a beautiful painted ceiling, old furniture, a comfortable bed and reasonable bathroom - not luxurious but atmospheric and charming. The staff are really pleasant - nice glasses given for free for our own wine when using the loggia for drinks and a picnic an example. The hotel location is great. The square of Santa Spirito is a hang out for young people (and old ones but they go to bed earlier), lots of fun with clothes and food markets - but it can be very noise especially on a saturday night. Earplugs by the bed come in useful if you are sensitive to noise and I wouldnt choose this room in this hotel if that is an issue for you. The breakfast was very ordinary. I thought it a bit expensive for Florence but we still had a very nice stay.
