Located just below the Ponte Vecchio, this hotel is in an excellent location to experience all that Florence has to offer. There are a few stairs to climb, though the quaint yet tiny lift will take you up most of them. As long as you don’t have mobility issues then, then this place is a great choice for a 3 star hotel with character.
Most of the rooms appear to have been recently refurbished and ours was done to a good standard, with ample space and storage. We had a view of the Boboli gardens, but would recommend asking for the top floor as the view is over neighbouring roofs. The roof-top terrace is a great spot for a drink or meal, with stunning 360 degree views of the city and gardens. We enjoyed a drink and breakfast on the terrace. The restaurant menu seemed reasonable and would be a lovely setting (again the roof-top terrace is used for this), but we did not take the opportunity to experience it.
The staff were very helpful, from the booking process through to accommodating our needs throughout our stay. We will certainly consider staying here again when we return to Florence.
