Best location in Florence!
We loved the location of the hotel. Best view of the city and not too far from the centre. The plus point is that the area is clean, open and not crowded.

Great hotel to stay away from the crowds
We booked this hotel because of the ratings and price. However, the hotel's AC was not working during our stay in March and we had to sleep with the windows open, but thankfully we were so outside the business and old town area, that there was minimal noise at night. We had a beautiful room with a double balcony and sitting area. The bathroom was a tad small, but we managed just fine. Breakfast buffet was nice and had an egg menu. Coffee was really good. Staff offered a small cash loan to pay for the taxi in case the taxi didn't take cards. The only problem with our stay was the location. What we saved in the hotel rate, we spend twice over on taxis. The hotel offers a shuttle but you must be ready on the hour or you miss it. It runs only during certain times, which also puts a strain on your schedule and the only time we were able to use the service, the ride was the worst ever, with the driver driving the van super fast even over bumps and winding roads making me so sick to my stomach, it ruined my entire evening. We ended up spending over 60 euros per day on taxis (beware of the starting rate as one tried to charge us more, but we caught him and he ended up adjusting it). Each trip from the hotel to the Piazza della Republica was anywhere from 12 to 15 euros one way.

Room with a view with great service and relaxation
Overall is five stars except the bathroom could get cooler at night because the cold breeze from outside gets in the bathroom window even when locked. View, space and room comfort and service is excellent

The hotel is beautiful and the views from the hotel are amazing. Many of the service people were very nice. This 5-start hotel could use a little sprucing up (e.g., the wood floors in our room were quite worn and the canopy over the beautiful bed was frayed). The food at the restaurant was nothing special.
