Ieal and we cant wait to go back!! We arrived in Florence on our Honeymoon and contacted Hotel Casci, they were booked for the night, but they put us up at a hotel nearby- which was more expensive, then the next morning came and carried our bags to our huge room with large bed and oval soaker tub. They gave us chilled prosecco as a gift, got our laundry washed for a great price, and even called ahead to places we wanted to go to see about lines etc. The place they recommended for dinner Toscanna was amazing non-tourist fare. The contintental breakfast is great, and the coffee is on par with a Bistro, and you wont need much for lunch either after, the frescoed dining hall is right our of a film set. The hotel is an old convent from the Medici's and actually abutts the Palace. The rooms are clean and simply furnished- the multi port charging station was the only one we saw in our entire stay in Italy. The location is perfect- two blocks from the historic Duomo! Would be great for families, but it was perfect for our romantic getaway and we will definately go back.
