Forget average city centre hotels instead, head to Il Salviatino.
After stopping to see Pisa, we drove on to Florence to stay at this magnificent Hotel. We were greeted by our Ambassador who arranged our hired car to be parked and made sure that we got dinner even though it was quite late.
Stayed at the Ojetti Suite which is stunning. The mirror-TV was superb! The room is quiet, you will not hear anybody from nextdoor. Everything oozes elegance and style. Rooms are tidied up twice a day, so when you return from dinner you enter a tidy room with candles lit and soft music purring from the mirror/tv.
The living room of the Ojetti suite is well lit, great for those relaxing afternoons and the floor is glass! Under the glass there is a painted glass that turned out to be the ceiling of the main staircase.
The bed is massive and it is arranged so that you can have a good night sleep without bothered by the morning light.
There are two bathrooms: one next to the bedroom area, with a shower and toilet and there is one upstairs (!) with a massive bath. From the bathroom you can walk out to a spacious balcony and drink in Florence's outstanding cityscape.
Breakfast is not an open buffet type of thing - you just ask for whatever you feel like and it will be prepared for you. One morning I asked for peach juice and I was served a freshly squeezed one, how impressive!
We ate three times at the hotel. The food, the waiters, the wines were all fantastic! Every meal was a treat.
Throughout our stay (3 nights) we've had transfer to and from the City Centre (so no need to drive and park the car in the city!), we were recommended Gelaterias, directions and everything we asked for was catered for and more.
Il Salviatino is the most romantic place we ever visited and we will definitely return. If you're looking for the Ultimate Honeymoon destination or just a weekend to surprise that special someone, then look no further. Il Salviatino is everything you can wish for.
