One of our best hotel stays ever
This is one of the best hotel stays we have ever had. This 3-star outdid the 4-star we were in in Rome by far. The staff really cares. The hotel is lovely. The location is wonderful. Our room was comfortable. Someone is at the desk 24/7. Breakfast is typical Italian style (don't expect American spread of eggs and bacon) with croissants, jam, Nutella, fruit, meats and cheese, and espresso, coffee or cappuccino. One thing to be aware of is the hotel is just inside the restricted driving zone so you cannot pull up in front unless you plan to use their valet parking garage service. This wasn't a problem for us as it is only a block to be outside of this zone and we found a garage there (there's also metered street parking 3 blocks away). It is just wise to know so you don't accidentally drive up to the front of the hotel. This honestly was a great location as any of the hotels in the historic area are likely within the restricted zone and some many blocks away from parking. This location being south of the river had the advantage of being so close to everything but not right in the middle of chaotic tourist areas. And, truly, we've never experienced hotel personnel who so obviously care for all aspects of our visit -- both time within the hotel and our time visiting the city. If we are back in Florence again, this would be where we'd stay.
