This is a lovely hotel, that blends the feeling of old and new artfully. It provides modern rooms and services for those who want that ambiance, but it has also paid special attention to its historic location and past. This means that for those interesting in feeling like they're in the heart of one of the world's great historic cities, you're in luck.
The staff was lovely, attentive, and the services were great. The location couldn't be better. It is conveniently located in my favorite part of Florence to stay in. You're close to the main station, the water, and the city's core. Yet, it is also on a large square and just far enough outside the main tourist mash that you're not overwhelmed by shoulder-to-shoulder traffic when you leave the front door during high season.
