My 22 year old daughter and I stayed here for 1 week 8/6 until 15/6 and it is truly a wonderful 5 star hotel. I believe it was completely refurbished last year and is immaculate.The room was delightful, only slight criticism bathroom was a bit small. However the beds were very comfortable with egyptian cotton sheets and cosy duvets. Satellite tv with a great range of english movie and comedy channels.The hotel has a lovely pool, essential in Florence in summer with a wonderful spa. Guests also have complimentary use of sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. The food is wonderful, Michelin star standard. Great breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice and wonderful coffee. It is a 30 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio but the hotel has a complimentary bus that runs all day up to 8.00 pm. Florence is one of the worlds great cities and now I have found a great hotel to stay in when I go there!
