This hotel has nothing to do with "sterilized" five star hotels in which one can stay. It is a marvelous and exceptionally renovated apartment and offers you the warmth of your home and the stay at a stylish and luxury place. The hosts, Michel and Cynzia are very warm people, do not make you feel like a client and they know the tips to tell you for the walkarounds in Florence, a very valuable service! The Henry James room where we stayed was more like a junior suite, offering a superb view in a great garden, and had a separate bathtub and shower room. The king size bed was so good and soft, you did not want to leave the room! The location is good too, as it is a rather quite neighborhood which however is on walking distance to the historic center, restaurants and other attractions which makes it extremely convenient. Totally different experience, exceptional place to stay and great people.
PS: definitely try Michel's scrambled eggs. A great way to start your day!
