I booked this on Booking.com for my family with kids for 3 nights. This great hotel exceeded all expectations. We had a spacious suite facing the Duomo and piazza. We could walk everywhere and took the train from the station which is right near the hotel. Restaurants were close. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful. The rooftop pool area was magical with outrageous stunning views of Florence and the sunset. We were there every evening following our sightseeing and the kids loved it. We tried their tapas and drinks and they were open until midnight. What a unique, fantastic way to stay with children. Rooms and bathroom were clean an comfortable. Highly recommend this gem. Note there is a line in Rick Steves guidebook about the square of Santa Maria Novella having drug addicts - reality is it could not be more family friendly with our kids there in evening without any evidence of this. Finally, prices were very reasonable.
