It is in an old monastery restored to a nice looking hotel. In places the owners have exposed the old bricks and painted walls to very nice effect. The rooftop bar/restaurant has...

We stayed here for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon in June 2013. The front desk staff were excellent, really friendly and helpful, and as everywhere we have been in Italy, spoke excellent English. We had a lovely room on the second floor, although the number of flights of stairs would suggest it was higher! There was a lift...

Right next to all major locations the hotel is perfectly placed. Wonderful breakfast in a perfect place, great service and very helpful staff. Rather expensive (we payed over 800 euros for the room inclusive...

You could not be more central in Florence. I could walk to everything! Super friendly and accommodating staff patiently answered any question I had! Unbelievable breakfast buffet as well. They also had a couple of awesome dinner recommendations as I was getting a little tired of Pizza at this point in my tour of Rome/Florence/Venice

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
