I recently stayed here in room 504 with my partner for our anniversary. The hotel is very nice and clean with a nice view. It is very close to the Duomo and to the train station which was fantastic as neither of us had ventured to Florence before and were concerned about locating the hotel. The city has lots to offer and is certainly very beautiful.
The use of the free wifi was a nice touch as roaming charges on a UK based mobile phone are ridiculous and this made contacting family and planning our tourism route a lot easier.
The windows in the bedroom are double glazed which locks out nearly all the loud external street noise which is brilliant when trying to sleep.
The staff are polite and friendly, we were very grateful that they allowed us to store our luggage after we checked out.
The only draw back is that the water temperature in the shower constantly fluctuated between hot and cold, so much so that it was difficult to fully enjoy. Also, the bed was clearly made up of two singles pushed together which meant that there was an uncomfortable divide through the middle, they were also a little hard to lie on.
Other than what I have mentioned, our stay was a memorable one and if the price is right, I would happily do it again and stay here.
