    Duomo
    Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
    an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
    The historic center is characterized by the immensity
    of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
    brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
    not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
    Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
    enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

    I am sorry i do not agree with the management, i would like to clarify that yes regarding my review of Hell Helvetia & Bristol, i did check in the room with 1 adult that is me and 2 children. IS the hotel trying to say that because i checked in with 1 adult and 2 children whose ages were 8 and 10 they allotted me the worst room in the hotel ? Also after complaining repeatedly the hotel the next day very reluctantly that too after my instance spoke to the hotel manager who eventually agreed to change my room where the Ac was finally working, i never asked the hotel for an upgraded room which they so claim they allotted to me the next day. Nevertheless it was one of my worst experiences at in Italy from all the hotels i have stayed so far. I will definitely not like to visit this hotel again. I had made this booking with orbitz and after my return back home from Italy i asked orbitz for a refund for the 1st night for the inconvenience caused to me they said they would check with the hotel and the response received by Orbitz from the hotel was sorry they cant do anything as they supposedly allotted me a better room the next day which i never ince asked for the only thing asked by me was a working Air conditioner and also the hotel responded by saying because i was 3 guests it was not possible. If they had issues with the 3rd guest ( 1 adult and 2 Children) sharing the room they should have made this issue at the time of check in, they should have told me at the time of check in about any charges etc if any about the 3rd guest, they did not raise this issue as there were 2 children who were sharing the room with me. Its no justification for not paying compensation or refunding the amount for the 1st night for the terrible stay at the hotel.
