Location is the #1 attribute and #2 is the reconfigured luxurious palacial home. We stayed five nights. Across the street from the Bargello, one block from the Palazzo Vecchio, and the Piaza della Signoria, 2 blocks from the Uffizi plus great walks to all the other key sites, restaurants, shopping and street action. The perfect location for a nightime walk listening to music resonating in the piazza and people out having fun. The room was large and included a separate den/lounge and a fun, modern, truly creative eco bathroom given the problems of water levels and sewage in the historic district. We chose to be at the front, on the piazza where we could see and hear life. Earplugs helped but it was never a real problem. Great to get up in the morning and watch the city come to life and the street vendors set up. Coffee was available in the central kitchen and arrangements can be made for breakfast at the coffee/wine bar downstairs. Our host, Sergio, was friendly and helpful. He straightened out a ticket question and would have booked if we had not already done so online....highly recommended. A welcoming, knowledgeable host is important in such a unique city. The weather on the shoulder of fall was wet and cold but nothing dampened our pleasure in the visit and the beautiful accommodation made it perfect.
