My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights, and loved it. They had a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine in our room on ice for us when we arrived with a nice note (it was our anniversary.) The rooftop bar was nice with views of the Arno on one side and the Duomo, other sites on the other. The breakfast buffet was in a beautiful room, and had a very wide selection of breads, cheeses, yogurts, nuts, eggs, meats.... As other reviews have mentioned the location is awesome (next to the Uffizi and Ponte Veccio a couple minute walk the other way.)
A couple reviews mentioned the staff in a negative way. We had a very different experience. We found the staff to be very efficient and helpful. Prior to the trip we asked for a couple suggestions, and they responded within a day. Once there the front desk staff were gracious when we arrived, they setup a day trip for us, they made reservations at a restaurant for us, they gave us directions, they gave us some basic help and advice with some airline issues, called us a cab when needed.... We had fairly straight forward requests, but we always felt they were very willing to assist us, and were friendly and empathetic while helping. The two men at the rooftop bar were also efficient and friendly when engaged (but would remain removed when we wanted to talk to each other.) If we were returning we would absolutely stay here again, and if any friends were traveling we would recommend this hotel with full confidence.
