I read a review of this hotel in a travel magazine and was keen to stay as it seemed so different from the very traditionally decorated hotels commonly found in Florence. It's really a breath of fresh air and unique so I was keen to get a tour of the other rooms and apartments. The common lounge is a really nice touch and a great way to mingle informally with other guests. The staff were fabulous and very willing to go beyond the sort of help usually offered in hotels. It is a bit of a walk out of town which, staying on my own on that occasion I would not want to do late at night. Other considerations for solo travellers is that there was no restaurant on site and being a bit out there is not much around the area if you dont want to pay for the chef service. Despite this, I loved it and would like to stay during the summer next time...being a bit out of the city and with a pool would probably be a big plus in the summer months in Florence. The other stumbling block is the price...it is quite an expensive place to stay, otherwise I owuld have stayed more often.
