Spent two nights in this small, clean, quiet and modern hotel deceptively tucked away, literally two minutes walk from the wonderful Duomo. The street entrance is unprepossessing, leading to the lift shaft which whisks you up to the hotel, but do not be put off. The rooms are modern, the reception friendly and helpful. One reception lady is Aussie (or NZ?) in origin so no problems with English, though the Italian receptionist speaks excellent English too.Location is superb. An easy 10 minute wheel of the cases from the main station, if you wish, Duomo on the doorstep, Galleria dell'Accademia (for David) a short stroll away. Everything within walking distance. At booking, the hotel offered to pre-book our ticket to the Galleria, meaning that we simply walked in without queueing when the day arrived. Helpful advice on places to eat from reception. If we were to return to Florence, we would wish to return to Il Perseo.
