“The most PERFECT hotel in Florence.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2011

This Hotel is a gem. You could not ask for more, perfect location, amazing terrace, the best staff, wonderful rooms.
I have lived here in Florence for a couple of years and i feel that this hotel is in the best best location in florence, when ever i have guests i send them to this hotel as its just so magic and a very special. drinks on the terrace as the sun goes down, you could not ask for a better place to be.
We got married in june and our guests stayed at this hotel, everyone of them was so impressed with the hotel and how very kind the staff were, helping over and above there duty.
really a wonderful place to stay. wonderful places to eat just steps away.
Enjoy this hotel, i know it gets very booked up, we booked it over a year in advance!

This is a superb hotel, in a great location, only a short walk from any of the attractions.
Fabulous 'village' vibe with the quaint restaurants directly outside in the piazza and small fresh food markets in the morning.
The owners were very helpful and quite understanding when we returned late for checkout after collecting our car and getting lost in the maze of 1 way streets!
Would love to return.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2011

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon. The hotel was very grand and spotlessly clean. There were some really nice reataurants in the square below and it is a short walk to the centre of Florence.
Overall we had an enjoyable stay but we had a bad experience on the morning we were leaving. Our train was leaving for Venice at 9.30am. We enquired the night before about ordering a taxi and were told that we should tell reception staff in the morning to order it. We were up at 7.45 for breakfast and asked could a taxi be booked. We were told that there was no need to book one that when they rang it should only take five minutes to come. At 8.45am the girl behind reception tried to ring for about ten minutes but was unable to get a taxi. She instead suggested that we go and get the bus. Out we went into the rain with our lugguage to look for the bus stop. Bearing in mind this was now 9.05 and Florence like every other city has rush hour traffic. We got to the bus stop only to be greeted by a bus which was packed to the rafters so we were unable to get on it. Eventually we had to ask for directions and literally power walk/run to the train station with our lugguage in the rain. We made it with literally two minute to spare.
To excuse the pun it really put a dampner on our stay at the hotel.

We were in Florence in July as my daughter was doing an art course for 2 weeks. Our stay at this hotel was fantastic! Very clean very friendly helpful staff .Rita made sure we had our favorite pastry every morning. I ended up breaking my foot the last weekend we were there and Laura was checking on me and bringing me coffee to my bed ! Very well run it had such charm and elegance it felt like you were in old world Italy ! We will definitely be back !

We stayed in this hotel for one night in early July. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the room was large, clean, and met all of our needs. The bathroom was also unusually large and was very nice. This hotel included a terrace with a nice view for guests to relax. We bought a bottle of wine, and the staff was kind enough to provide a corkscrew and two glasses for us. The air conditioning was pretty adequate (we had better on our trip), but it met our needs. The wi-fi connection was a bit inconsistent at times, but don't let that deter you from staying there on your relaxing vacation, as this was a great hotel overall. Highly recommended!

Stayed for two nights and the hotel was classic finish which had huge rooms.
Hotel staff were very friendly and helped to prebook museums and recommend great local restaurants.
Nothing better after a day sightseeing than spending an evening watching the sunset with a glass of wine on the balcony !

We stayed at this Hotel for 2 nights. It is perfectly situated in the Piazza Santo Spirito, which is a small, lively square with a couple of bars and a little morning market. It was in easy walking distance of everywhere. The Pitti Palace is just behind! We had a superior double at the back which was so peaceful - you would not have known you were in a City. The room and bathrooom were very spacious and clean. Breakfast was basic, but ample. The Loggia was fab, with a lovely breeze and views. It was great to sit and have a drink there after site seeing. The staff were extremely helpful and obliging. We would definately recommend this B&B!
