Our daughter sent a year in Florence , however we did not know this hotel then. First of all we have stayed at the Lungarno, many times and Villa Massa....but ths hotel surpasses them all. We loved the location , easy to walk everywhere. It is in an area up and coming...perfectly safe! All suites, our 2 rooms and bath were sumptuous. Breakfasts were served either in the room or a breakfast room.A huge selection of food, all fresh and delicious . The staff was terrific. It was just simply wonderful. Priced well, service great location superb.....what more could you ask for. We cannot wait to go back next year.
