I spent one week at this historical hotel. Once the home of Bonaparte's sister, it has been a hotel for 100 years. The hotel in some sections has stairs on the floors which indicate the sections attached from another hotel.
One of the most beautiful views in Florence is on the 6th floor restaurant terrace. Absolutely spectacular at sunset or the full moon.
The lobby bar services the most delicious ice coffee sometimes in a martini class, sometimes in a tumbler. Depends who is making it for you.
The conseirge team are exceptional, extremely helpful, knowledgable. They can book train tickets, excursions or what ever you need.
The Front desk are also very helpful and they all make a great team.
The rooms are comfortable, cozy and the room amenities made with white tea tree are refreshing. If you have a balcony facing the Arno you can enjoy the lights and sunsets.
My only complaint was I got bitten by mosquitos every night at 3h30 even with the window closed.
Breakfast was wonderful. Omlette station, grilled veggies, fruits, yogurts, italian sweets. Great way to start the day.
One afternoon for lunch we had pasta and a baked fish which was so well cooked and so fresh it melted like butter in your mouth.
Due to fear of fires no coffee machines or irons are available in the hotel but they can press clothes if needed.
The hotel is beautifully located. 15minutes from the airport, walking distance from everything in Florence with a veiw of Ponto Vecchio.
Hotel lobby has a computer for internet use and a printer for tickets.
All around the hotel there are great places to eat within a few meters of the hotel.
Want to treat yourself to a romantic stay in a romantic city... this would be a great treat.
