A beautiful character hotel in a wonderful central posistion within walking distance of most of the major sites. A twenty minute taxi ride from Florence airport with a set charge of 20 euros plus one euro for each suitcase.
My wife and I stayed in one of the hotels classic rooms(cheapest), which was tastefully decorated with antique furnishings and a spectacular central chandeller. The bed was king sized and comfortable with pure linen sheets and pillow cases. The en suite shower room was a little on the small side but adequate, with a varied array of complementary quality toiletries. There were no tea or coffee making facilities within the room. A turned down service each night was in operation and used towels were replaced in the shower room and a small casket of chocolates were left on the bed, which was a nice touch.
Breakfast was buffet style, served in a large room with a spectacular frescord ceiling. Breakfast itself offered a large and varied menu, suitable for all tastes and was of a good standard. Hot drinks were severed to you table by staff and a replacement pot of tea or coffee was offered if required.
To sum up. This is an excellent hotel with outstanding staff that put their guests first, as nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. Rooms were spotlessly clean and well-presented including the public areas and corridors. Could not fault anything.
I would wholeheartledly recommend this hotel if visisting Florence.
