This was our second long (4-6 day) stay at the Montebello Splendid. The hotel is beautiful, staff helpful with requests, but not omni-presently hovering as in some 5 star hotels. (Some have mentioned the staff as being unfriendly, but this may be because you have plastic room keys and the reception desk is slightly blocked from the door. They responded beautifully to all requests.)
The hotel couldn't be more comfortable, clean, with great beds, lovely junior suites.
Breakfasts are overpriced at 23 Euros (this is typical of higher end hotels in Italy and France) and mediocre. They were included in our pricing, otherwise we would have eaten out. Much as we love the hotel, the location is a quick 25 minute walk from the Duomo and through a couple of streets where I didn't want to wear good jewelry. We might stay elsewhere next time only because of the distance from all we typically do in Florence.
