Recently I finally managed to travel back to Italy to celebrate the new year in the most romantic city of Florence. My husband and I stayed at the hotel Raffaello. It was our wedding anniversary and staff were very caring and paid attention to all details of our staying . When the hotel director found out that it was our wedding anniversary, he came and congratulated us and surprised with a treat in our bedroom. The menu for the festive season was carefully prepared and was utterly enjoyable. We would be happy to be back there any time and we strongly recommend it.

I've been in this hotel for few days the first week of December with my partner, and since the warm welcome we received at the reception, we understood that we made the right choice. The Hotel is lovely, newly refurbished and very clean. But the staff is what makes the difference. Everyone is very attentive, caring and smiling, and they go over and beyond to satisfy any request. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Claudia and Luisa (hope I get the names right) at the reception have been amazing. They always recognised us by name (yes they remembered our names), and greeted us with a smile even though we had few requests for the room. They simply accommodated our requests in an efficient and timely manner. We had breakfast every day and few times lunch or dinner as well during our stay. Food was great and the Chef (Stefano if I am not wrong) was often going around the table to make sure that guests are happy and satisfied. We also felt very safe thanks to the Health & Safety measure they have in place in the whole Hotel after Covid. Staff is wearing masks and they follow the government guidelines. We had the chance to meet the General Manager Marco, which helped us in various situation with suggestions and directions to make sure that we enjoy our trip in Florence. He is passionate about his job, and you can clearly feel it when he talks. Overall, me and my partner had an amazing experience. It was our first trip outside UK since Covid, and we are happy that we choose this hotel. We will definitely come back, and recommend to our friends.
