My brothers,sister and I took our mum to Florence for her birthday, I tried to get an upgrade for the special occasion but could not without paying an extra 100 euros a night which was a bit expensive for a view of the river, especially since our rooms were okay without a view of the river (two triple rooms). However, the hotel more than made up for it on the first night when we came into our room from sightseeing and saw that they had provided us with complimentary sparkling wine and nibbles. It was a lovely surprise and a nice touch for our mum.
The rooms were spacious, beds were comfortable and we all slept well. The bathroom was clean and spacious with complimentary toiletries. The grand staircase you walk down when going out or to breakfast makes you feel like you are in the Italian equivalent of "Downton Abbey"
The buffet breakfast was lovely, a lot of choice from fresh fruits, croissants, pastries and full English breakfast without baked beans though!
Reception very helpful, helped us plan our sightseeing tour patiently and recommended a very nice restaurant.
Only niggle, is that you have to pay for ironing, as you cannot iron yourself!
The hotel is alongside the River Arno and is about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Florence which is nice when you go back to your quiet hotel away from the hustle and bustle of Florence.
Loved Florence and it was a pleasure coming back to the hotel after a long day out, would definitely come back again to Florence and the hotel.
