We booked this hotel hearing of fabulous reviews--especially because of the rooftop bar. When we checked in, our room was an average European hotel. This was our "splurge" hotel and paid almost $500 more than any other hotel we stayed in while in Italy; however, we got a room that wasn't worth the price.
The room itself was small, the TV was flat screen but incredibly small--almost difficult to see from the bed. In addition, the room was always HOT but we never had the heat on. Even the tile floor in the bathroom was hot, which we assume was because of the piping? We had to keep the windows open at night just to sleep but then were covered in bug bites in the morning.
The location of the hotel is central to most attractions, only a five to ten minute walk for most places which was good. Nevertheless, the area is loud at all hours.
The rooftop was not disappointing. We got beautiful pictures of Florence from the top of the hotel. It was quite beautiful. The "bar" though was disappointing, not a large selection.
If the cost of the room was lower, I would recommend this hotel; however it wasn't and we were disappointed.
