My husband and I stayed in the Actor suite which was very spacious with charming details like the old marble sink with beautiful tiles. The bathroom was clean and modern with a great completely enclosed shower stall (not the norm in Europe where it's not uncommon to get the whole bathroom wet when taking a shower). Excellent location within an easy walk of anywhere you want to go in Florence, but also on a quiet street. Many choices of restaurants nearby within a couple of blocks. They made an Uffizi reservation for us on very short notice (the day before we arrived). Definitely take advantage of this service and try to do it more in advance (we were too late to get an Accademia reservation and had to get there before it opened and wait in line for over an hour). The internet is a bit slow but does work in the room. There is air conditioning but it could have been a bit stronger. We opted for the no breakfast and no cleaning option (we were only there for 2 nights) - it was nice to have the option to pay less if you don't want those extra services. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Florence - I hope we do!
