We are a family of four, I am English and my wife and teenage son/daughter are Italian. We stayed in one of the family "rooms" - very nice, with the sleeping areas divided on two floor levels in an open space kind of apartment within the Hotel structure. All perfect, large bathroom, all very clean, great service and nicely furnished. Nothing is missing.
The Hotel is located perfectly in the center, no noise, 7 minute walk to the Duomo and perfected for exploring the historic center.
We stayed for two nights and on the first night there was a welcome apertif and light buffet early evening t the Hotel bar.
Staff all very helpfull and if you want to eat good Tuscan food at the right the price ask them for recommendations. We would highly recommend the restaurant Enzo e Piero - Via Faenza see http://www.trattoriaenzoepiero.it/ - it was a fantastic evening both for th food and very friendly atmosphere. Also we ate at eh Birrifico Mostodolce in Via Bartolomeo for a mid-day lunch where you can enjoy a range of very nice craft beers.
We would recommend you follow in our footsteps!!
