We go once a year to Florence for a weekend and have for the first time tried this hotel not will definitely not be the last time we have been there. The location is perfect. Close to all the nice places. The staff is very friendly and helpful. And the rooms are just fantastic. Nicely redone and a little bit quirky, but just perfect for our taste. We have a huge room with extremely high ceilings and a river view. Bed was very comfortable and the double shower a blast. Breakfast is good and the cappuccino rocks. We will be back!
