We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this hotel last month. The hotel was located 10 minutes from all the sights. The rooms were large and spotless. The breakfast was very good with pastries, cereals, boiled eggs, meats, cheeses, yogurt, etc.
But what sets this hotel apart from other hotels is the staff. Every staff member acted as if they were your own personal concierge at a 5 star hotel. Before we arrived in Florence, the obtained our reservations for the Academia and Uffizi. They made dinner recommendations and reservations. They made phone calls for taxis. They took out maps and showed us the best walking routes. They gave us guide books when we visited Siena. They printed out train and bus schedules for us.
Thank you to Giulia, Dario, Evelyn, Antonelli, and the rest of the staff for making our Florence stay so enjoyable.

All rooms are different in size and position - executive rooms have a standard size - superior rooms are larger - de luxe and junior suite are very large with a sitting area. We have rooms overlooking the courtyard, gardens and several rooms overlooking Via Cavour which is the main street but 70% pedestrian and so it's not too noisy.
