Get off the train in Florence and in 5 minutes you are at the hotel located on the Santa Maria Novella Square. This was a huge plus for us and our overstuffed suitcases. The location was perfect for us - near the Central Market, shopping, museums, etc. We walked everywhere. The room and bathroom were gorgeous and large, especially by European standards. There was snafu about getting 2 twins beds, which our travel agent blamed on the hotel and vice versa, and we didn't have a view, and it was sometimes very noisy right out our window, but the location and size of the room made up for those mishaps. The hotel staff, while very helpful, sometimes needed more than one person behind the desk. One of the reasons I chose this hotel was for the business center - it was just a computer on a desk and I couldn't access my Comcast email account and another guest couldn't get into their gmail account. My friend's AOL worked just fine, but that was upsetting to me. The gym was small, but gorgeous - as with everything else at this hotel, it looked brand new. They could have used a water cooler in there, though. Breakfast, with a magnificent view of the city, was delicious, although they needed to replenish more often. Everything has the hotel monogram on it - very elegant.
