We recently had 4 nights at this fantastic hotel. We booked two superior rooms (rm 204 & 206) overlooking the beautiful Piazza. We didn't find the noise from outside disturbing. The rooms were very large and in the room with queen bed we had a very large bathroom with a jacuzzi bath. The beds were very comfortable and rooms came with kettle, (unusual for Italy) tea, coffee and biscotti and a fresh bottle of water each morning. The pool on the roof is gorgeous and the view is amazing. To be able to sitting in the pool and look out over the rooftops of Florence and see the The Duomo is magical. And the bar at the pool is great with fab cocktails.
All the staff were so friendly and helpful and it is a perfect location for visiting Florence. It is less than 5 minutes walk to the Duomo. There are plenty of good restaurants on the Piazza and a great gelato shop right on the corner.
We loved our stay and can't wait to return!
