The reviews are all correct - you will have a wonderful stay here.
Location - We flew to Florence Airport, took the bus to the train station for 5 Euros each and then easily walked to the Hotel following the clear map--maybe 10 to 15 minutes. The location is actually down the street from the high end shops (Tiffany's is at the corner) but in the other direction, all of the tourist sites. Excellent and very quiet location.
Service - Fabrizio, Thommaso and their staff will anticipate your needs and exceed your expectations.
Room - We stayed for two stays within one vacation (having visited a villa in between) and each room was very good. Our first room on the 2nd floor was a good size, spotlessly clean and so quiet and dark with the shutters closed that we slept in hours later than we ever do at home! The second room on the 3rd floor was larger and brighter but again with the shutters closed at night, absolutely no sound or light.
Food - We found the breakfast to be just we we needed--cereals, yogurt, fruit, cheese, ham and breads and sweets along with a coffee bar and juices. The afternoon happy hour has delicious wine and snacks with low lights, candles lit and Thommaso's amazing ITUNES playlists. (Thomasso, you need to market your playlists!!)
There is nothing that was missing from this being a top 5 star experience. They do it right!!
