Our group of 55 singers stayed at the Ricasoli in the "old" part of the hotel....15th century palace converted to hotel rooms. The rooms for our group were wildly different. Our initial room was like a huge 2 story apartment. That may sound good, but it wasn't. To get to the bedroom and bath, we had to climb a dangerous clunky spiral staircase. The room had a cold unfriendly feeling. We asked to change rooms and were given a one-level charming large room with sitting room, terrace, and kitchenette ( most rooms had a kitchenette with no amenities...no plates, pots, forks, glasses ). The second room was much better than the first. some in our group loved their room and some did not..since all the rooms were so different. This 4-star hotel had a computer room with spotty internet...no service in the rooms. The staff was nice. The breakfast was good. The location was so-so. We had to walk 15 minutes to get to the Duomo..in the rain. However, it was a quiet location with lots of parking for guests. And there were elevators. There was a large garden separating the old building from the new building. I have mixed feelings about the Ricasoli. It appears to cater to groups.
