We chose an apartment for the first part of our trip because we wanted to visit the local food markets and cook and live like locals. For the last part of our trip, we wanted a luxurious hotel. After a really...

Dear Guest, I read your review and I fell terribly sorry and frustrated about what happened.

This hotel, a former palace, is a beautiful and special place to stay while in Florence. The hotel itself is beautifully appointed, peaceful and serene, and is within an easy walk of anything you'd want to see in the city. What makes the experience extra-special, though, is the attention you'll get from everyone on the staff. They are friendly and...

Wonderful small hotel of high quality, well located for the city centre, a stones throw from Santa Croce, as its name suggests. Friendly staff and nice room (208) overlooking the noisy street, but the soundproofing is amazing - it even stops the noise of the ubiquitous scooters.
