All i can say is wow! My daughter and I walked into the foyer and could not stop looking at the decor. Absolutely beautiful. We traveled to Florence mid October 2013. We wanted a hotel that was centrally located and that is what we got. Walking distance to the train station and everything else. Our room was very spacious and very clean. No view from the window but we were out all day so no problem there. Lovely staff, very welcoming and helpful. Should have stayed longer!
