This hotel has just been renovated and is located very centrally. Ten minutes relaxing walk to Uffizzi/Ponte Vecchio and even less minutes to Duomo. We found it very well priced with regards what it offers especially comparing to other 4 star properties in the city. Rooms are nicely designed if not too dark due to usage of black/gold wallpapers. They have wooden floors, comfortable big beds. However if you are light sleeper be prepared to hear some noise from outside even with closed windows. Depends how tired you are from sightseeing... The view was of the high end boutiques streets or the opposite building which was having reconstruction work going on so noise was noticeable as of early morning. Breakfast is continental, so do not expect hot items, however the rest is tasty with unlimited and very good cappucinos. What we would like to point out is absolutely excellent service. All ladies at the front desk we have interacted were fantastic and helpfull. Their restaurant recommendations were good and they made sure the tables were reserved for us as some places had just few places. Also breakfast room is very well serviced as well.
