I chose this hotel/Apartment based on reviews from Trip Advisor and the fact that I was looking for somewhere where I could have our children (8yrs & 4yrs) in a separate room. Everything about this place was fantastic. Laura was great and looked after all our needs. The Apartment (Elizabeth I Room) was clean and a good size with a large bathroom that had a spa bath, which the kids loved. All the amenities mentioned on the web sight where there and more importantly worked. The decor is lovely and original, which adds to the ambience of the hotel.
We arrived on a day that was extremely hot, which mean't that the complimentary food and juice was great with two tired children.
The location was perfect and therefore close to sights and all the shops you need.
As mentioned by others, parking is not an option if you have a car, which is why I actually took this advise and chose to get a shuttle for our family into town from the airport and then return us after our stay. We then picked up our hire car from the airport to continue our journey in Italy. A shuttle Service on line is about 42 Euros for a family of 4 or the 'First of Florence' offers a service for around 50 Euros. If you already have a car, I believe there is a parking area near by, but you would most likely need to get a taxi, which Laura from the hotel would help with.
The 'First of Florence' is certainly a little gem in every way, which we can't recommend enough.
