We booked this place through Expedia for a 3 night city break to Florence.
The hotel is on Via Porta Rossa, a posh street that runs through the centre of old Florence about 10-15min walk from the main train and bus station. All the main sights are within walking distance with lots of restaurants , bars and shops on your doorstep.
The hotel is a tastefully modernised old building that retains some architectural highlights. Check in was swift enough and we were offered a junior suite upgrade for €15/night - junior suite was nice enough but probably not worth having the extra living room living space if you are a couple and plan to be outside for most of the day.
Anyway , the room was nice enough - mix of modern and some 'antique' style furniture.
Bathroom was nice enough but I would have expected more. The extra junior suite space would have been better used for providing a luxury bathroom - freestanding bath and separate rainforest shower. Anyway , it was nice enough, clean although extractor fan didn't work.
Wifi in the room is SLOW and you cannot stream movies - need to buy the 'premium' wifi which still isn't very fast.
Breakfast was a nice spread and the fruits especially were very tasty. Nice coffee.
Price was reasonable through Expedia but not particularly cheap.
