What a hotel. Right on the Arno river. We stayed here one night, made the reservation by phone from the taxi cab immediately after Lufthansa stranded us and another 600 of our closest friends for one night (3 flights to Frankfurt canceled at the same time) at the Florence Airport.
The hotel is small, intimate and lovely. I think that it must be nearly new but it has a character and charm that makes it feel opulent and approachable. Our room was on two levels separated by 6 or 7 stairs. We had two bathrooms and a magnificent sitting / living room with huge windows looking out on the river. They brought us two glasses of Prosecco immediately after checking in ( we had a butler!). We drank them slowly on our little veranda while looking at the Ponte Vecchio while savouring the scene that we would have never experienced if not for Lufthansa's poor customer service. This may be the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at and it was by accident. Everyone was nice to us at this hotel, some even referred to me by name, really a nice touch.
If you are going to be in Florence try this hotel. Its awesome.
