Just back from our 3rd visit to Florence. We flew direct to from London City Airport and booked the flight and hotel with Briotish Airways, transfer from airport to hotel was 25 euros. I upgraded to a deluxe room but was pleasently surprised to be put in room 115 which was a lovely room on what I believe is their Tuscan floor, if you get this room you will have no complaints!
The hotel location is perfect, the hotel is very clean and the staff very friendly. One of the reasons we booked this hotel was because of the good reviews of breakfast, well something must have changed recently. There was a reasonable pastry selection, however the hot food options were very poor and unappetising and it would have been nicer for the fruit to have been fresh and not tinned. We had to order pancakes and ommeletts each day which were fine however wasn't happy to have an invoice for 48 Euro's at check out. Also on the website are pictures of the Terrace with a hot tub, there was no mention of this anywhere in the hotel and although we didn't look too hard we never found it.
In summary we would happiliy stay at the hotel again but if you like a nice relaxing cooked breakfast to start your day then stay somewhere else, the Westin Excelsior have a splendid breakfast, but is more money. You pay your money and take your choice
