This was an awesome hotel. The front staff was generally very friendly and helpful, some more than others. (I did not think that the female staff person that checked me out was as friendly as the other staff.) They carried our bags to our room and called us a cab when we checked out. Complementary breakfast was an added bonus. They bring cappuccinos and expresso from the bar for you at breakfast. The front staff also recommended nearby restaurants, all of which were excellent. They have a bar open, and were kind enough to provide complementary red wine remaining after a wine tasting. Outside of the bar is a nice patio to enjoy a glass of wine in the afternoon. The only disappointment was the sporadic access to the free WI-FI, something needed by my family members and me. It worked fine in the lobby area but not very well if at all in our room. Oh yes, the keys are so big and old fashion that you turn them in when you leave and pick them up at the front desk when you return. It is kind of nice as it gives you a chance to talk to the friendly front staff after a long day exploring or after a nice dinner and gelato. It was not the closest to the city, but a very short walk to do everything you need to do in Florence. It is across the street from the river and 2 bridges away. There is an awesome lookout on the other side of the hotel which was a short walk for us. The rooms were on the large side. I definitely would stay there again on my next trip to Florence.
