Beautiful hotel in the heart of Florence
This was my second visit to this wonderful hotel. My daughter and I stay there 5+ years ago during a tour of Italy and loved the accommodations, location and, especially, delicious breakfast. My wife and I recently returned for a short stay in Florence and we were not disappointed. Everything (room, location and, most importantly, breakfast) was exactly as I remembered. On top of that, the friendly and helpful staff helped ensure that we enjoyed a wonderful stay.

Great fancy hotel at the heart of the great city
This hotel is amazing! The location is perfect (Florence is easy to walk anywhere anyways), minutes to the main train station. The piazza is fantastic with vivid life. The staff is simply amazing and can help anything with local arrangement or inquiries. The breakfast is super awesome that we could skip lunch if we opt to. We will come back any time.
