After setting my budget and criteria Hotel Perseo looked like it was the best of the bunch in the short list.
I normally book 4* hotels but the one I found located nearby to Hotel Perseo at the same price didn't look very impressive so I went ahead and booked this one.
We arrived in Firenze by coach, which dropped us off at Firenze SMN station, the hotel is 5 minutes walk from the station - first impressions upon entering the building were that it looked a bit sketchy - but that's because the hotel is located within a block (ie you are not entering the hotel from the street but rather when you reach the third floor) we received a very warm welcome from the lady on reception who runs the hotel with her husband. Without us having to ask we were offered a map and shown where all of the sites were in relation to the hotel. :)
The public areas have a really lovely, homely, comfortable atmosphere and there are some books available in the reception area.
We were shown to our room and were really impressed. It was decorated with warm colours with a modern design. The room and bathroom were both very clean. The room is equipped with hangers and an in-room safe. The bathroom is complete with hairdryer, shower caps, shower gel and towels.
We settled in and then headed off for lunch, the Italian lady on reception recommended a great place to eat in the market square which is just around the corner - a must try for anyone staying!
The location of the hotel can't be beaten! It's central to everything that you need to see during your stay.
Breakfast had a really good selection of croissants, breads, cheeses, cured meats, cereals, fruit, yoghurt and more!
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Florence.
Thank you for a great stay. :)
