This is an exceptional hotel with an outstanding location in the Oltrarno. The Ponte Vecchio is at the end of the block. Cross the bridge, and the Uffizi and all of the sites of central Firenze are a short, pleasant walk away. The hotel is on the same side of the Arno with the Pallazo Pitti, Piazzale Michelangelo and the Boboli Gardens.
The staff is wonderful, and everyone is fluent in English. The place is immaculate, and when we visited in December 2014 it was (tastefully) decorated for Christmas. Enjoying an evening drink in the lobby lounge, which came with biscotti, a fire in the lounge fireplace, looking out over the river with a view of the bridge was magical. The room was spotless, and very comfortable. We were lucky to have a room facing the Arno. It felt like being on a luxury cruise ship looking out of the French doors with Juliet baconies. Look straight down, and there is the water. Beautiful!
There are many good of restaurants in the neighborhood with no need to cross the bridge if you choose not to. There is even a grocery store nearby as well as small salumeria if you want to pick up some snacks for the room.
We highly recommend this property. It is a jewel and a quiet respite in what can be a hectic city.
