I first stayed here over 25 years ago and always remembered it with great joy, the rooms with high ceilings and the veranda over looking the Piazza and rooftops. This place isn't glitzy, it's classic, beautifully proportioned and timeless. It has barely changed from my memories and I was overjoyed walking back into it. Santa Spirito is one of the most interesting and authentic neighbourhoods in Florence with small artisan workshop, bars and restaurants. Away from the tourist centre but close enough to walk to the Duomo. The osteria across the square is fantastic but even better food is found at I Raddi at the bottom end of Via D'Ardiglione, 5/10 mins walk away. We spend our last night drinking far too much at Volume on the square watching games of speed chess and later some live music. They were projecting images and films on the facade of Santa Spirito church.
Back to the hotel - very friendly and helpful staff. lovely breakfasts in the 'sun-soaked' breakfast room (as someone has written) I would say very good value for money and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when in Florence.
