This was my first time in Florence and only for one night since we were traveling around Italy.
We chose this Hotel base on Tripadvisor reviews and for its location.
The Hotel is located just across the church Santa Maria Novella and five minutes from the main train station. The Duomo and the museums are also within walking distance.
We reserved an apartment for the 4 of us and it was a great decision. It was a very comfortable room, divided in two levels, each one of them with their own bedroom, bathroom, mini bar, flat TV, and coffee and tea facilities. We had a lovely view to the Piazza.
The people at the reception were extremely helpful on recommending places to eat local dishes and making the reservations.
Breakfast was plenty, with nice food and a wide selection of pastries and juices. Internet is also offered free of charge and through the Hotel.
Unfortunately, we couldn't enjoy the nice terrace since it was winter but we are considering to visit again in spring or summer.
