This was a very great place to stay for our first time to Italy. Our room had a wonderful view of the Duomo! The location was perfect for all of our needs. We could easily drop off purchases we made during the day so we didn't have to carry them around to all the sites. Umberto is very nice and polite. He worked great with us on our arrival time and had our bags taken up to our room for us. He also gave WONDERFUL suggestions on where to eat and they were all fantastic. He was a great resource. This place was a great location and great place to crash for a few nights. Right in the middle of all the action.
The only downside to staying right in the hustle and bustle of Florence is the noise. Florence doesn't shut down until around 3 AM right around the main piazzas. We didn't sleep too well due to the fact of the busy street. Our neighbors were pretty loud when they would come in for the night too.
Bedrooms were great. All that you really need. Nothing fancy, but who cares when you're out sightseeing all day. Bathrooms were great. There were four to choose from so there wasn't ever a wait.
Over all it was a wonderful stay and we would recommend it to anyone who wants to be involved with the city life.
