My husband and I stayed three nights at this hotel during our honeymoon.
We were initially excited when shown our room. It is a bit dated, but in a regal and charming way. It was a superior room with a view...directly above the flags over the front door.
The first night, I realized this wasn't so desirable. The bed was average...fine, nothing too terrible but not terribly comfortable either. The pillows were awful. Laying there you could hear everything. Conversations in the street, in the hall, in the next room, construction, traffic, suitcases rolling by...it was awful.
Breakfast was good, not spectacular but a good way to start a day of walking and exploring. The woman who ran it was...efficient to a fault. She was very brusque, tended to hover (made me feel like I shouldn't be eating) and when I stood to refill my glass of juice I turned around to find she had cleared away my full cup of coffee an half finished plate!!!
The shower looked intriguing. It was a multi jet affair that seemed like it might have been a bit of heaven. I never had a chance to find out. Our water barely warmed past frigid. The desk clerk was lovely and tried to help. He restarted something and messed around, testing the water in the Hall bathroom. The best I could say for the water in our room was that it was warmer...it was still to cold to use. I o regard someone at breakfast talking about how great their shower was so this must only have been an issue in our room.
The internet connection was sporadic and unreliable. Not a huge deal, but inconvenient for my husband's online courses.
None of these issues would be deal breakers by themselves (maybe the water) but taken together they made for a very disappointing stay. I was even more disappointed based on the great reviews this hotel had.
Location was great...good base for exploring Florence and convenient to the train station and Duomo.
