This is a wonderful hotel in a wonderful location immediately adjacent to Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery. It is within a short walking distance of most of the major sites of Firenze. We walked everywhere without needing a taxi or bus. We stayed in room 309 for two nights, which did not have a view but was a good size and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was fairly large and also spotless. The bed was very comfortable. Considering the hotel is located near the river in the heart of Firenze our room was very quiet- we did not hear any street noise at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served in a very beautiful room with frescos on the ceiling and chandeliers. The breakfast offerings are vast- cold cuts, eggs, fruit, yogurt, cereal, cakes, croissants, etc- all displayed beautifully each morning and the waitstaff very friendly ! The rooftop bar has a beautiful view- we spent an hour there one late evening before we left Florence and it was very relaxing. The bartender was very nice as well. There are a few nice unexpected touches as well- such as two free bottles of water each day (very handy during the hot summer days), two complimentary soft drinks or water bottles at the bar, and on our first night we received t-shirts at turn-down service- a nice souvenir of our stay and a nice surprise. The only drawback was the wifi- we did have trouble connecting and keeping the connection during our stay. Perhaps it related to the location of the room? However, we would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Florence.
