We enjoyed 4 nights in October 2013 at this exciting and different hotel. From the moment you open the old wooden doors you step into another world and you know the experience will be unique.
We had a top floor room which had a view of the Duomo and of the Palazzo Vecchio with its famous tower. These were lit up at night. Being a corner room we also had a view of the Palazzo Pitti from our en suite bathroom.
The rooms were large, comfortable and clean. The breakfast room had plenty of choice and afternoon teas or drinks on the large loggia terrace balcony overlooking the Piazza Santo Spirito felt very civilised.
The location managed to avoid the worst of the tourist areas while still being a convenient short walk from them. Less than a 10 minute walk and you could be crossing the Ponte Vecchio. The Piazza below was lively with the impressive Basilica di Santo Spirito at one end and bordered with bars, cafes and restaurants.
The staff was friendly and helpful; there was good free Wi-Fi and plenty of storage (wardrobe and drawers) in the room. No elevator above the second floor so be prepared for some climbing of 16th century stairs.
We loved our time there and would willingly stay there again.
