This hotel is perfectly situated between the main train station of Florence (walking distance if you don't have too much luggage) and the beautiful Duamo.
The reception staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast is available on a rooftop terrace which becomes a wine bar by night. The view is amazing.
All around the hotel are options for meals in every price range and, of course, shopping. Leather goods and jewelry are specialties.
Our 'junior suite' was clean, tidy, quite basic, but everything we needed as a base to explore this beautiful city.
Although the hotel claims the rooms are soundproofed, I was disturbed most nights by noise from adjoining rooms.
Overall this was a really reasonably priced, pleasant hotel in an excellent location.
