We stayed a few days in this hotel in early October. I don’t know where to begin, it was simply wonderful. Our taxi drove right through the Piazza della Santissima Annunziatato to drop us off at the stairs of our hotel. Even though we had to drag our large suitcases up the stairs, it was love at first sight. The large wooden doors to enter the hotel were magnificent. We immediately turned left and were greeted by the front desk staff. Very cordial. Our room was not ready, we ventured out for lunch. With each step we fell in love with Florence. We went back to the hotel to check-in. We were in room 35, a suite. Even though it did not bother me, there is a VERY small elevator. It barely held one person and the luggage. So be prepared. Once you exit on your floor, you meander through corridors looking for your room. When you open the door, it is like stepping back in time. High vaulted ceilings with gorgeous wooden beams, plaster walls, windows that open to a breathtaking view of red tile roofs. There was a small table and two chairs, and a safe in the cupboard. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was modern and large. Two sinks and a large tube shower combination. They supplied you with olive oil infused shampoos and lotions. The other room, had a single bed with magnificent “claw feet.” It looked out over the courtyard. Our room did not have a minibar, although we understand that others did have one. The breakfast was very good. You enter the room and an attendant seats you. From there, it is a buffet style breakfast. The only issue that was a bit negative occurred during the evening. Upon return to the hotel between 9:30-10:00 pm you encounter rather shady characters. Some of them sleep in the courtyard. Nobody bothered us but it did make you feel a bit odd that you were in the glorious room and people were sleeping outside. The location was great; walking distance to everything. Very close to the Accademia Gallery. The room had old world charm and the staff was great. I would DEFINITLY stay here again and recommend to friends and family. One more thing, they have a large leather bound book in the lobby where you can write comments. Very nice touch!
