I’ve never written a review for TripAdvisor before, but we booked this hotel because of the great TripAdvisor reviews, and it absolutely lived up to our expectations, so I decided to post this. As the reviews mention, it’s an amazing location – just ½ block from the Duomo, 10-minute walk to the train station and walking distance to everything in Florence. It has a great vibe – very friendly and helpful staff; when our room wasn’t quite ready (we got there early), they made us a couple cups of cappuccino (some of the best we had) while we waited for a few minutes and helped us locate places we were looking for on our map. Rates were reasonable, at least off-season; for non-refundable rates (paid in advance on their website) the rooms started at $76Euro/$106US for economy double, and we ended up splurging a bit and booking the Superior Double for $108Euro/$150 US, which was a really incredible room – very large, light and modern w/ TV and an unbelievable view of the duomo and tower right out our window! When we booked, I mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary (we met in Florence 22 yrs ago), and when we got to our room, there was a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us – so sweet. There is complimentary breakfast in the morning (very good, w/ cereal, toast, cheese, salami, hardboiled eggs, fruit, cappuccino), and free cocktail reception each night, which we enjoyed. We had a wonderful stay; our only complaint was that it was too short; we look forward to coming back again!
