From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and at home. The staff were incredibly helpful, spoke fantastic English, and gave us the tips on the best to see and do in our short 3 night stay in Florence!
The room was fantastic, we paid slightly extra per night for the superior room with a view of the Duomo, which was a very wise investment. Clean, tidy, big, fantastic view of Duomo and courtyard (not the busy street out front), lovely size bathroom and shower. A safety deposit box was included in the wardrobe, which put our minds at ease during the day.
The location I cannot recommend highly enough, right in the centre of Florence, only a minutes walk from the Duomo square. I'd done my research before arriving using google maps and google street view, so knew roughly what I was looking for on arriving. I have to admit, I was slightly confused at first, as the entrance to the hotel is actually not on the ground floor. The ground floor has some flats/rooms which are not for guests, and this area is not as pretty or nice as the actual Hotel. Once realising my mistake I arrived on the second floor with my girlfriend to a lovely hotel entrance and reception. The breakfast area was laid out nicely, mostly with tables of two. (Breakfast was well worth the money and filled us up for the rest of the day, lots of choice and a good variety :) )
I liked everything about the hotel, and cannot fault it, or it's staff, especially as it was Easter Sunday the day we arrived, they were so polite!
Once we have saved (we're students so don't have a lot of money) I am certain that we shall be staying here again and hope to for longer!
