We stayed here in mid July as part of a package to see the MotoGP at Mugello, and read the previous reviews with a sense of trepidation. However the hotel was a delight. We had the room adjoining the main block, and it was delightful. Large, airy, and such a change from the usual hotel box you get. The breakfasts were satisfactory, and considering the early starts we made, 5:45 am, the staff were a lot more cheerful than I would have been. Paying to use the pool area was a bit much, I would have expected it to be free for residents, otherwise this would have been a 5 star review.
The hotel is in a great position for getting around, you are only 10 mins walk from the centre, and there are plenty of reasonable eateries nearby, try the Chinese in Via XXVII, and ice cream from the shop in piazza San Marco. Aviod the resturant next door to the ice cream shop, it's not very good at all.
