The hotel was in the perfect location, a block from the Duomo and a short walk to everything we wanted to see. Although it was close to everything we found it very quiet and restful. We enjoyed waking up to the sound of the church bells each morning. The staff was extremely helpful in handling a last minute change in dates for us. They had many great tips for restuarants and how best to see the sights on our to do list. They purchased the Firenze card for us, after making sure it would be cost benificial based on what we wanted to see, which saved us an additional step on our busy sight-seeing days. We visited Florence in late June which is a very busy time but having the Firenze card allowed us to skip all the lines. The breakfast was convenient and fresh. The rooms were clean and comfortable. When we return to Florence we will stay there again.
