This hotel looks nothing as you approach it along the old, narrow, one-way street in the heart of Florence. Then you reach the huge front door that opens up into a lovely entrance hall, with a wonderful original ceiling, through which you gain entry into the cosy reception and glimpse the courtyard and gardens beyond.
This lovely, comfortable hotel exceeded our expectations, and provided an ideal base for our short trip to Florence. A short walk to all the sights, great restaurants and shopping. Couldn't have asked for anything more (except perhaps a swimming pool, but then we didn't ask for one in the first place). Would definitely return.
