This is a difficult review to write. The location of the hotel is wonderful. Very convenient, yet quiet at night. Our suite was huge...including the bathroom (although the shower was just in the middle of the floor with no surround, so the bathroom floor was slippery), and well air conditioned. The breakfast wasn't great...rolls (the bread in Tuscany is their great culinery let down), jam, fruit. Typical for Italy. The staff was competent, but not overly friendly. The bad...we had no hot water for showers on four different occasions over four days. When we called the front desk, they were usually able to get the hot water started. We only had two showers that were completely cold, but frankly we didn't want to have to call the front for hot water every time we showered. On the other hand, our time on the tower was magical. Although I am a "cram it in, don't stop" type of traveller, Florence has a downtime in the evening between everything closing and dinnertime starting. I didn't expect to use the tower, as we rarely are around to use hotel amenities, but we used it everyday. The time we had in the breeze at the end of the day, watching the day fade over the rooftops of the city was wonderful. And the staffer in charge of the roof was delightful. The slowed down time going back over our day provided some of the best moments of the trip. We skipped going to Piazzale Michelangelo, because we couldn't imagine that that view could compete with what we had at "home". So I guess it depends on your priorities....if we had hot water we'd give it a definate thumbs up.
