The level of design and architecture and attention to detail here is totally on point.
The pool and outdoor area is great (except for all the little mosquitoes and bugs, which is my ONLY complaint, but a constant annoyance).
The common area is awesome - love the "honesty bar" concept and that soft drinks in the mini bar are free (finally, a place that isn't try to screw you in every corner).
The breakfast was fantasmo.
The room is rustic, modern, comfortable.
The bathroom (especially the shower) is a model that I will definitely rebuild for myself one day.
But most important, the staff is the best part... we took all of their suggestions and our (high) expectations were surpassed. They made reservations for us and generally made our time in Florence smooth and enjoyable.
This place is not for everyone, but if you have an appreciation for design and niche places, take your wallet out know that you're money is being well spent!
