I don't stay in upscale hotels very much (this is rated a 4-star hotel), On a trip to Italy, my wife and I stayed at this hotel based on what was available. On the plus side, it is close to the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, which are worth seeing. It is a bit far to walk (we arrived by train and taxi) into the center of the city each day and back. Our room was just off the reception area. It was suitable but nothing special. The breakfast was not very good and certainly subpar compared to other hotels (including a wonderful 1-star hotel, Hotel Vecchio Asilo in the San Gimignano area) in Venice and Assisi. Some of the staff were not very helpful. Although there is a pool, it was dirty and looked like it had not been cleaned in weeks. Overall, a very so-so experience.
