This is a three star hotel with five star service. Every member of the team understand what service excellence is - and they deliver it consistently. We stayed with friends in three rooms - each was spotlessly clean, had individual charm and character and remained wonderfully warm during the -4 degrees weekend.
Having read some of the poor comments, I can't help thinking that people forget this building is over 500 years old. We did not experience anything not working - but even if we had, the beauty and character of the rooms and the charm of the hotel and its staff would more than compensate.
If you've never been to Florence before and want to be looked after in beautiful surroundings just a one minute walk from the Doumo - I recommend this hotel as excellent value.
