Our five day stay at this lovely little hotel in Florence was a fabulous start to our vacation! The rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable, and quite large by European standards. We found the location to be very convenient and within a short walking distance of all the major Florence sights. Although breakfast is available in the breakfast room, we chose to have it in our room every day. They are able to provide either a continental or a full American breakfast - whatever you request, they will endeavour to provide. The staff are very warm, friendly and helpful with regards to suggestions about restaurants, sights, making arrangements. Leonardo at the front desk was extremely helpful in tracking down a piece of luggage that was inadvertently left at the airport. We had a room facing the street (Machiavelli) - noise was not really a factor as the buskers at the piazza generally stopped around 10. Although we originally considered staying on the opposite side of the river, we were extremely happy with our choice. Most of the attractions are located on this side, and Altrarno is within easy walking distance for a day's exploration or dinner.
When we return to Florence, we will definitely use the Palazzo Vecchietti as our base!
