Beautiful hotel! When you walk in, you’ll see an elegant lobby that is much bigger than you would expect from the outside. To the left of the reception area is a nice size lounge/sitting area with a bar (with a regular attendant) and tables. The staff is fluent in English and very professional. We entered our room and was pleased with the bright airy feel. Large bed, large bathroom with modern amenities. We also had great wi-fi service in the room. There is a restaurant and room service. There is evening turn down service with delicious chocolates left on your pillow. English speakers will find comfort in keeping up with the news with access to CNN and BBC channels. The free breakfast buffet is wonderful with waiters standing attentively to assist you with your every need, quickly taking plates and utensils and replacing them with new ones as you continue your meal. The service was exceptional. The best feature about the hotel – the location! We did not take a single taxi to visit any of the main tourist sites as everything was a reasonable walk. The hotel is a few blocks away from the Uffizi Galary, Pizza Della Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio, Piazza della Repubblica (Republic Square), The Cathedral and Duomo. There’s a 10-20 minute walk to other places like the Gallaria Academia, The Ponte Vecchio Bridge, and Palazzo Pitti. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed in the location! Overall, this hotel made our stay in Florence even more enjoyable.
