We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. This hotel is nice and very close to the Arno river. It's 10 minutes to walk to the Ponte Vecchio (you can walk along side the Arno river). The beds are hard to sleep in. The shower doesn't have a curtain to close while showering, but a small plastic covering (water tends to splash on the flower). The front desk staff was helpful to some extent (some individuals). There was one front desk staff (short man with curly hair) who is very sarcastic and responds to questions in a manner as though he's bothered; this makes one uncomfortable to ask ANYTHING at all. I have traveled to Italy several times, therefore I am somewhat seasoned and not the first time tourist...this staff member could insult anyone from his behavior. All in all, everyone else was trained in customer service. The waiters in the morning breakfast were friendly (especially Giacomo!!) He spoke English and initiated conversations with the guests.
