We stayed here as part of a Tauck tour. The hotel is located on an open piazza alongside the Arno River. It makes quite a first impression. Happily, the rest of our experience was at the same high level. Our room was very large, bathroom was good with a double sink. I had some laundry done, and it was very expensive (no surprise there). The breakfast buffet was included in our package, and the selections were quite nice. They have a coffee station at the front of the restaurant, in case you want a cup to go. The view from the 6th floor bar is stunning, day or night. My daughter and I walked everywhere, including the world-famous Santa Maria Novella pharmacy (high-end cosmetics) and the Ponte Vecchio for gold jewelry. I recommend crossing the river to the Piazzale Michaelangelo for the very best view of Florence, especially at night. The location is great, and the hotel was a great home base for exploring Florence.
