“Luxury and smell of new paint”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

Located in beautiful park like surroundings just 10-12 EUR taxa ride from downtown Florence (Firenze). Close enough to Florence that you can actually walk home in the night if taxies are not to be found (25 min walk). Neighborhood appears upscale and very attractive with old classic Florence manor houses.

We were probably one of the 10-15 first guests in this hotel that has been completely renovated. The hotel still has a quite strong paint smell, although not in our suite, and in few weeks this should be over. Everywhere it appears that materials and workmanship of the highest quality has been used.

The room in our case was a large suite: Exquisite, stylish, but not overly decorated. Great beds. From all windows we enjoyed the park like exteriors.

A nice touch: The mini bar was included in the room price. This added to the feeling of being a quest rather than just a costumer.

Breakfast was included. It was clearly better than other places I have stayed in Italy but not quite what I would expect from the price range. This could however be related to the fact that the hotel is not quite fully operational yet (no restaurant). With time this hotel might deserve an excellent rating.

Free wifi and parking included.
