We stayed in a junior suite which was really wonderful. Everything was exactly as it should be (including my request for no feathers in the room), and it was extremely comfortable. There was a nice gift of Vin Santo + cantucci on arrival. Spacious, very beautiful room, sparkling clean bathroom and plenty of space for toiletries for two people. Two robes/slippers provided automatically.
Very nicely placed for the Ufizzi, Palazzo Vecchio, Piazza Della Signoria (copy of David and plenty of others, original of Rape of the Sabine Women), local markets, and Ponte Vecchio and river. Short walk to Duomo.
Our only problem was that the air conditioning (as with most Italian hotels) did not go down far enough and the room was hot by English standards. The windows opened, which was lovely, but the alleyway under our windows was apparently on the route home from a bar of some note, because hordes of drunken young people were yelling and cackling with laughter from about eleven till after 2am each night, and then of course the iron wheeled market carrozze were dragged along to their positions extremely early in the morning, so to say it was noisy was an understatement. If this bothers you, ask for a room which does not overlook the alley. It might help.
