Our family stayed here in March '13 for three nights. We all loved it. The rooms were beautiful and the "library" room particularly well sized. Our rooms were clearly very recently renovated/decorated and were very tastefully done. The bathrooms were nice and modern and functional (which isnt always the case in europe).
The rooftop restaurant offered spectacular views of Florence - made you want to sit there all day. The breakfasts were great with extensive offerings.
The location was also great. You are very close to pretty much anywhere you want to be in Florence but also not in the middle of heavily touristy areas.
It should be noted that this isn't what i'd call a traditional hotel. There isnt a real lobby area and i don't think there is room service etc. Of course there is housekeeping and the front desk staff are very helpful with arrangements etc. I only point this out in case you want a "typical" hotel situation. We didnt feel like we missed out on anything - and we are used to nicer hotels (eg Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton)
We would absolutely stay at this hotel again. We look forward to it.
