Grazie mille Umberto for that unforgettable experience. Che hotel! So first this room sounded too good to be true, a room with a view of arguably the most SPECTACULAR Duomo in the country, pfft... We didn't have that kind of money, right? WRONG! Our money bought as more than we could ever have dreamed of. We did not have to spend money on transportation for ourselves because it would have almost been impossible to be closer to the Duomo and all the main Florentine attrarctions. You literally must only stretch out your arm of the window to take the classic tourist view of it - no zoom required!
Umberto is the proprietor is the best host - he didn't bat an eyelid when we borrowed spoons from his kitchen and filled up water from his sink (but don't all try it, you can queue up for the bathroom). Don't be put off by the shared bathroom facilities, no problems here, although make aware yourself that the wi-fi area consists of a chair in the corridor outside which what would be the bathroom queueing area if you were in queue.
Discover the rest for youself!
