We stayed here in early April and were very pleased with our choice. Despite being right in the middle of all the action, the room was very quiet and comfortable. We stayed in the larger suite with the attached terrace, which was great for relaxing after a day of sight-seeing. The room was spacious, clean, bright and well-appointed, in an ecclectic/traditional style. The bathroom was a reasonable size and very clean and functional.
The host, Federico, was friendly and helpful and even arranged for a taxi to the airport early the morning of our departure. Federico was not available when we arrived, so we were welcomed by his charming and gracious parents.
This is not a typical hotel - it is a small, five room property - but it offers everything you need for a visit to this great city. It is located only minutes from both the Duomo and Galleria Accademia, and there are lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Breakfast is around the corner at the OK Bar and is basic but very good.
We highly recommend the Relais Accademia and would not hesitate to stay there again.
