I entrusted my husband to make the accommodation bookings for our honeymoon and it is fair to say he is firmly in the good books for a long while!
The hotel is centrally located but surprisingly very quiet.
In my opinion the photographs of the lounge and dining area do not do this hotel justice, it is airy and fresh, I have to also say very clean. There seemed to be always someone ensuring the floors were polished and clean.
The staff are amazing, courteous and extremely helpful. We ate at the restaurant they recommended and we were not disappointed. We took dinner at the hotel on arrival, don't be put off by the small menu as what they do have is well cooked, presented and tasty.
The breakfast is lovely and there is a very good selection to suit all tastes.
I did use the spa and I was impressed with the range of massages available and the facilities are very good, great way to relax after pounding the streets of Florence.
We had a junior suite which was well appointed. My husband is 6'7 and we did worry about the low beams but he did not bump his head once, it is just being realistic about you environment, it is a historic building you are not going to get huge rooms as per some ubiquitous European hotel chains.
It is not cheap but looking at other hotels in the area I don't think it is overly expensive for what you get. I was so sad when we checked out, it is a true gem and we hope to be back one day.
Thank you for a perfect ending to our honeymoon
