We were booked into an apartment for four nights near the duomo but the street noise was so extreme (and we are used to a fair bit of noise in Europe) and went on all night, so we bailed out (foregoing a lot of money!) and looked for a hotel to stay in for the remaining three nights to get some sleep! The Borghese Palace gave us a room, for which we were very grateful, but which turned out to be next door to some very noisy guests that night. After two nights without sleep, we appealed to Massimiliano Martini, our friendly and helpful concierge, who promised to move us to another similar room while we were out exploring for the day. We arrived back and were delighted to find he had kindly upgraded us to a junior suite, which was not only huge but at the end of a corridor and blissfully quiet! What a legend! Everything else about the hotel was wonderful; great bar area, varied breakfast fare, and fabulous artworks decorating the lobby and bar area. We didn't venture down to the spa area, but other guests told us it was excellent. The hotel is central to everything in Florence and I would highly recommend it. Thank you to the excellent staff for rescuing two weary travellers, and particularly to Massimiliano!
