I must say that with all the positive reviews we read in advance the quality of the room was still better than we expected. Large, modern and clean. Individual flexible reading lights on the bed, individual headphones for TV watching in bed, etc. The room even had it's own computer, which is something I have not seen before. The location is very near the Duomo and all major sights in Florence. Breakfast was European, substantial and good quality. The only negative was the male staff who run the place and live in the building. Their attitude was distant, mildly belligerent and bordering on rude (if our room key did not work it was totally our fault?). This could just be a cultural thing as we found most Italian men acted this way. We are used to more polite service in Canada. Anyway, I would certainly recommend this place to anyone visiting Florence. Book ahead, as they have only a few rooms.
