Before arrival, Daniele was very helpful in reserving entry to the Academia, the Uffizi, and the Bargello. Upon arrival, Fabrizio ( I think) saved the day by helping correct a mistake I had made when making the reservation. The Hotel is spotless, unique, and accommodating, with a eclectic collection of modern art. We reserved a Junior Suite and it was perfect, with a beautiful and modern bath. The (included) breakfast buffet is outstanding, and the little "deli" next door is absolutely charming.Do NOT skip the welcoming gift served in the deli. The young man, Sharms, I believe, was a highlight of the trip. Gracious and charming, and an authority on local wines, aged meats, cheeses, and produce. Located about equidistant between the Duomo and the Acadamia, it is also a short walk to the Uffizi and the ponte Vecchio. Walkable from the train station (SMN) without heavy luggage. I will return to Florence, and I will stay at Il Guelfo Bianco.
