We attend with kids in the family suite. This is clearly not typical for most people staying here but it works really well. The family suite is huge - an appartment with two bedrooms huge living room and kitchen diner too. Super amount of space for a family. The location of the hotel is great, very close but not in the midst of the tourist throng. No restaurant but loads of restaurants really a stones throw away. The breakfasts are excellent and the staff very helpful. Roof terrace also a magical space with fabulous views. The common parts and exterior are very discrete and uncommercial. But the service levels are indicative of a well run establishment. . Quibbles? If only to lend credibility to the review- the room was at the front of the hotel on the first floor and Italians let alone tourists after a few bottles of chianti are not famed for being quiet. With so much space the suite really would be better with a bath and not just showers. But the positive reviews are all correct and I would only want to emphasise that it works well as a location for kids in their family suite.

Each suite reflects the refinement of the Renaissance style, with the subtle combination of comfort and modern technology and decorated with tasteful antique furnishings and materials originating from the owners' ancestors' antique collection. Spanning between 80- and 120-square meters (860- and 1300- square feet) in size, the 13 suites each comprise a large living room, bedroom(s) and master bathroom(s). Each includes all amenities expected of a five-star luxury hotel, including stereo, satellite television in both the living room and bedroom, internet port and self-regulating air conditioning units.

Detail and ornamentation characterises the building throughout, surprising the wanderer with frescoes, vaulted ceilings and intricate wood-carvings. The Renaissance decor prevails in this palace of traditional Florentine lay-out. Breakfast, for instance, is served in a 160-square meter salon with hand-crafted wood ceilings illuminated by a large original Murano chandelier.
