Stayed here as 1st part of a Riviera travel Tuscany tour. Hotel was too far away from the centre of Florence. With temperatures in the 30's after a busy morning tour the 30 minute walk to the town centre was too far. In the evening it was too much effort to return to town, there was a restaurant next door "Outside" which was expensive and very poor value. There were no other convenient restaurants. We ended up eating at a snack bar on the banks of the Arno river which was very pleasant, but hardly a gourmet experience.
Room was adequate but plumbing was suspect and due to a computer failure there were no working room keys!! Asking about an upgrade to a room on a high floor with views of the river was quoted as costing 80 euros per night extra. We didn't upgrade.
Now to breakfast. Fruit juice came in 3 colours, orange, red and yellow. All were ghastly, sour and not tasting of fruit and no indications of what they were supposed to be. Cooked breakfast was the same every day and consisted of cold scrambled egg and cold greasy fatty undercooked bacon. Croissants were too sweet and bread did not taste fresh.
