I stayed here as our friends held their wedding here. Beautiful views on the terrace overlooking Florence and the pool is a great spot to relax after the hustle and bustle of walking around in the gorgeous city of Florence.
Positives: romantic setting for the wedding, excellent food and wine served throughout the wedding, comfortable beds, small hotel so it feels intimate and cozy. The wedding guests were able to stay in the library area for several hours talking until the early morning. Helpful with restaurant bookings and use of the ad-hoc shuttle service to ponte vecchio.
Downsides: service issues (lack thereof) we were dismayed after going to bed at 4am to be woken up by the loud noises of clanging at 9am as the hotel were preparing for another wedding being hosted the subsequent night, and no warning was provided to any of us either on checking in OR by way of a note under the door the previous night (not expected for a 5 star hotel). Breakfast was limited in terms of buffet, and we were not told that hot options were actually available (no menu was provided nor did the staff mention this). Also in relation to the subsequent wedding, we came back from Florence centre at the exact time the other bride was about to walk down the aisle and we were therefore prevented from entering the property for at least 15 minutes- they should have warned us so we would have stayed in the centre longer or grabbed a coffee instead of loitering on our tired feet at the entrance. Bathtub was raised a bit high so difficult for someone with shorter legs to access with ease.
