Dear Mrs. J., Thank you very much for the nice review, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our Hotel and we understand your opinion about the lift and we would like to have a bigger lift too but unfortunately it's not possible in a XV century building.

Created out of a veritable rabbit-warren of buildings co-joined & interconnected on many different levels, luggage management is definitely one hurdle--but that can be overcome with patience & goodwill.

Staying in Pitti

Neighbourhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
