We stayed for 6 nights at the Porta Rossa Hotel. We chose it for the location and the beautiful pictures online. The location is perfect- you walk out the door and you are 2 minutes from the river, Piazza della Repubblica, Mercato Nuovo (home of the bronze boar). We booked a junior suite, and got room 505, which faces the street and had a beautiful view of the rooftops and Duomo. We didn't have a problem with street noise, perhaps the high floor helped, and there are also wooden shutters you can close inside over the windows to block noise and light. The bed was so comfortable, and the room is very dark with the shutters closed, we slept thru the night without a problem. The hotel itself is beautiful, and the modern decor is a nice touch - similar as one other reviewer noted to a 'W hotel' in the states. There are some excellent places to eat literally out the front door - La Bussola for wood oven Pizza, Colle Bereto for a drink/wine/snack. Our favorite dinner places were Angiolino's (loved the Bistecca alla Fiorentine) and 4Leoni (pear ravioli) and the Caffe Pitti (truffle and gorgonzola risotto). All of them were across the river, only about a 10 minute walk. WiFi is free in your room with a code provided by the front desk, and this is a nice bonus. We had an amazing stay, made more special by the wonderful and friendly front desk staff - Marta, Elena and Francesco, who gave us wonderful recommendations for dinners, tours, shopping and helped make our holiday extra special.
