We loved this little palazzo hotel in central florence. Just ten minutes walk from Santa Maria Novella train station (where all the airport buses arrive), and five minutes from the Duomo, you are within easy walking distance of the entire old city.
The hotel is the first floor, and the rooms must have very thick walls and good windows as it was always peaceful. Everything is spotlessly clean, and the room is given a decent refresh every day.
Arianna and Paolo were both lovely, making us feel totally at home but without fussing around us too much. Arianna is enthusiastic about ice cream and gave us one or two fantastic tips for where to buy the very best scoops.
Breakfast is self service but a proper coffee is provided if you ask. Good range of cereal, fruit, yogurt, juice, bread and pastries.
Overall this hotel is highly recommended!
