We stayed for 3 nights in a "Superior Room"
We were delighted with our choice of hotel in Florence. It is in a brilliant location only 2 minutes walk from the Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi.
The public areas of the hotel are elegant and the staff of very friendly and highly efficient. The service at the bar and in the breakfast room was fantastic - friendly and prompt.
The room was wonderful, large with plenty of room for a small table and two chairs at the foot of the large bed, The bedlinen was worth note, real, soft linen. The window only looked out onto a lightwell area but there was plenty of light in the room. The bathroom was fantastic, a large vanity area with plenty of bench space, separated by a door from the bathroom. A nice large bath and shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, etc all supplied. The towels were plushy and thick.
There were slippers and bathrobes provided and turn down service each evening with sweets left on the pillow.
We ordered room service one evening, delicious platters of antipasti and breads and Prosecco which came very promptly.
The Wifi was free and had an excellent strength signal.
The breakfast buffet is served in a gorgeous room that looks like a ballroom. Delicious cappucino and espresso offered on arrival. As well as the usual fruits, pastries, breads, cold meats and cheeses - there were scrambled eggs and bacon and fresh juices. Even sparkling wine!
We only had one issue. On checkout, the clerk converted our bill to Aussie dollars without asking if that was what we wanted ( as they are required to do) My husband didn't notice and so we ended up paying a high conversion rate, and he was not very happy about it when checking the bill later. That is the only reason that I've given the hotel 4 stars instead of 5
