A friend and I just completed a 3 night stay at Hotel L'Orologio in Florence. The hotel was an absolute delight. Where do I even start...
The location -- right in the Piazza Santa Maria Novella, and just a 5 minute walk from the train station. Perfect! Loads of great restaurants nearby.
Front Desk -- the staff were friendly and helpful, going out of their way to help me when I had to get some documents scanned for work.
The room -- nice and spacious, extremely clean, very quiet, very effective blackout curtains, and a lovely bathroom.
The bar -- fantastic bartender who makes a variety of cocktails absolutely perfectly.
Gym and sauna -- hard to find hotels with a gym in Florence, so this was a real treat.
You can't go wrong with Hotel L'Orologio. I will definitely stay here on my next visit to Florence!
