We stayed at this hotel for seven nights in October. We had booked a deluxe room, but on arrival were upgraded to a small suite by the friendly staff on reception. The furnishings suited the grand style of the hotel and everything was fresh and clean.
The location is excellent - we saw everything we wanted to see in Florence without getting a bus or taxi - and we could return to the hotel during the day, as the major sights were so close by, which suited us well.
As you are in the middle of Florence, there is some noise from outside (including the bells tolling the hour from 7am), but we closed the shutters and accepted this as a compromise for the great location.
We enjoyed the breakfast, with a reasonable selection and a nice location to eat.
We were recommended the hotel by friends and would do so ourselves.
