"Lovely room, fantastic location and great staff"
We stayed 10 nights in this hotel, so we were especially pleased that the room was larger than we expected, with good closet space. The staff were pleasant, attentive, and very professional. Secure wi-fi was included and completely reliable. The breakfast room staff were especially diligent in looking after guests, replenishing the buffet, clearing tables, and so on. The breakfast buffet had many choices, including fresh fruit and a good selection of cheeses. The hotel is very clean, and the chambermaids did a thorough job in making up the room every day. The location is a short walk from the Duomo, the Piazza de la Republica (good restaurants and lively in the evenings), the Ponte Vechhio, the Palazzo Strozzi, the Uffizi, and just about anything else one would want to see or do on this side of the Arno, plus the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens on the other side. The hotel is on a street with elegant stores, so you can window-shop at Hermes and Gucci even if you aren't buying there. The church across the street is worth visiting. This is a fascinating area to walk around in, with beautiful old buildings, ornate doors, and interesting architectural features. There is also a laundromat a few blocks away, which was convenient. This was a very comfortable hotel and we would be happy to stay here again.
