I became aware of this place through Rick Steves' "Italy" guide book. We are so glad that we stayed there. Parking in any Italian city is a nightmare for those who are not familiar with the layout, and it can be VERY costly. If you bring a car to Casa Santo... as we did, you will be able to park in their private, gated lot for just 10 Euros per day. This is a wonderful added bonus to an already pleasant experience. The entire building is very nice, the rooms are very large, and the garden is beautifully kept. The breakfast was the biggest selection we received at any location in Italy, and the whole layout of the place make it a fascinating experience. The reception staff are extremely helpful and friendly, especially Lydia. The location to the heart of Florence is perfect for touring by foot (just a block or two south of the river). If I go back to Florence, there is no doubt that I will stay here again!
