Had booked the gold room 5 months in advance after arriving was told there was a technical issue and were put in the room next door. After going down to reception the next morning was told there was no technical issue the room was just being occupied by someone else. I was so disappointed as I chose this hotel to stay in that pacific room. So if you have requested a certain room be prepared not to get it!
Other issues we had with the hotel were the stairs like the review mentions below. Some nights after walking all day they were a struggle.
Breakfast was not great. I only ate a croissant and had a cup of tea in the mornings. Not much choice and again agree with the last review.
The noise. Even tho the windows were shut could hear music playing until 1.45am, people screaming. Then the stall holders set up from 4am. The bells are a nice wake up call at 8.30am. I would highly recommend a room away from the noise as I don't think the beauty of the room outweighs sleepless nights.
The hotel is very beautiful and we often sat on the loggia at night watching the florence people. We found the staff helpful and were given a small discount for not getting our room and free glasses of wine which I don't drink so opted for tea.
Overall would I stay in this hotel again? Probably not. I would see what else florence had to offer.
