We found this hotel recommended in the Daily Telegraph, and were not disappointed, it is on the "other " side of the river and as such is not overrun with tourists.Placed on a small piazza with a splendid church and several very good eating spots.It can be a little noisy,(the hotel thoughtfully supplies earplugs!). But after a day or so one gets used to it. There is a small market most mornings, which sets up quite early, and the locals gather at night and chat until 12 to 1 am. The shutters on the splendid rooms are quite efficient and reduce it to a reasonable level, the beds are roomy and very comfortable, and we had a settee, mini bar and two huge wardrobes withan amazing painted ceiling . The hotel occupies the top floor with an impressive terrace looking towards the Duomo and the main tourist areas. The Pitti Palace is 5 mins stroll with the Ponte Vecchio a mere 2 minutes further. The staff were charming and helpful with a pleasantly laid back attitude and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were comprehensive and the small bar could produce a drink or coffee at the drop of a hat. We are happy to recommend it and can see why it achieves the high ratings.
