We stayed for 4 nights in the Strozzi suite at Platinhome. Generally we were impressed with the suite. The location was fantastic.
The building itself is huge and the ground floor houses Cafe Paszowski and Cafe Gilli with an entrance between the 2. We were met at the door by a very friendly Russian girl - ?Elena who copied our passports and showed us up to the suite. It was 5 floors in the lift (past government offices) and then up a flight of stairs.
Within the suite there was a king size bed, living room, kitchenette and balcony. The main feature is of course the huge shower in the middle of the room. The shower comes with 2 showerheads with separate temperature controls, mood lighting and both steam and mist. It is definitely big enough for two although if you aren't feeling quite so friendly, it is possible to shield the bedroom and shower from the living room with a huge curtain.
The kitchenette had a sink, hob, microwave and fridge. There were a few bottles in the fridge (v. expensive - 6 euros for a small bottle of water when they only cost 1.50 euros in any bar) but nothing else and no coffee (despite the coffee machine).
We had to sign a tenancy agreement which seemed a bit odd and couldn't make the internet work. Cleaners came every morning, made the bed and replaced the towels. When we left we checked out about midday and were then allowed to leave our bags in the suite until we needed to go.
A few tips - bring some DVD's - there were no non-Italian television channels. Also, don't try going to either Cafe Gilli or Cafe Paszowski - over priced with very poor service.
