It's located on Piazza de Repubblica, which is typically very busy and a central point to most of Florence for sightseeing and shopping. It is very well appointed with an excellent restaurant and lounge. There is no official spa, but a small workout room that is adequate. Nonetheless, I had a suite overlooking the Piazza for a week as I typically go to Florence at least 1x annually and it was very well appointed and decorated. The staff is very professional and service is impeccable. Rocco Forte hotels are excellent. It's an excellent location for a business trip, solo or couples. They even coordinated a driver for a daytrip to Tuscany for wine tasting at Wineries such as Antinori.
