Super artsy hotel - in a great location near the Duomo and also Ponte Vecchio, Uffizzi Gallery and the Santa Croce church where Galileo and Michelangelo are buried. It has a great vibe, art in the lobby area. The rooms are nicely appointed but felt they could have put more thoughtfulness in some details - like the showers (which are tiny) have no place to put soap, shampoo. The faucets require some explanation that the bellman takes time to demonstrate. There is one handle on the sink. It goes from cold to hot, but there is no controlling the volume. We only stayed two nights, and would try a different hotel next time for a basis of comparison.
Staff was delightful - they are the A+ of the experience, as was the substantial, complimentary breakfast in the dining area.
No room service for anything but breakfast. My husband was feeling under the weather and I needed to trek to the nearby "Take out" pizzeria to get some vegetable soup and a pizza for a quick late meal after a day of walking all over Florence.
