From the booking process onwards the staff at this hotel couldn't have been more helpful. I emailed them numerous times with various questions about the rooms and the train times from Pisa and they always replied promptly and gave me all the information I needed .
The room was amazing and the views from the 3 windows breathtaking. When we arrived the lady who greeted us showed us around. The two roof terraces, one looking over the Arno and the other looking over the Duomo were incredible. We didn't need to go to any other high buildings in Florence to take photos over the city as it was all here . The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast gorgeous with lots of choice. I still can't work out how thenroom was so quiet being in the centre of Florence. We were able to open the windows in the room wide to hear the bells of Florence chiming.
All in all I would definitely go back to the Antica again and hope to very soon. It isn't cheap but worth every penny. All the staff we met , from the ladies on reception to the staff serving breakfast, were very friendly and helped with any questions we had, printing off train timetables and generally just being as helpful as they could. I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough, thank you for a memorable stay.
