First off, let me say that we'd definitely return to Florence and to the Bernini. Our double deluxe room was quite spacious (especially for Europe), clean and comfortable. The bathroom had plenty of counter space (which is also rare). We also loved the location - just a few steps from the Uffizi and the fantastic Piazza Signoria. However, there were a few small annoyances - the overall service was good, but some of the folks at the front desk had a bit of an attitude and were kind of brusque. Also, the breakfast was second-rate. The selection was only fair, and there was an extra charge (on top of the already high room rate) for eggs and oatmeal. While we were there (for 5 nights) a large group came in and invaded the breakfast room like locusts. I can't fault the hotel for booking in groups, which is their lifeblood, we couldn't get into the breakfast room that morning, which was quite frustrating. There was also a lot of loud construction going on in the hotel, but only during daylight hours. Bottom line for us is despite the few downsides, we'd come back again.
