My husband booked this hotel because it was where they filmed one of my favourite films 'Room with a view'. However, I think I was as disappointed with my room (102) as Lucy Honeychurch. Our view from a first floor bedroom was blocked by the arcade which lines the Arno so you only get a partial view of the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. When we arrived , the room was freezing because of the air conditioning. We had to ask them to turn it off three times before the room came up to a decent temperature. The room was quite noisy at night especially on Saturday night as people walk past it along the Arno. The reason I didn't sleep well though is that the mattress was really hard; it was like sleeping on wooden boards and quite uncomfortable after a tiring day walking around the city. On the positive side, there was a good choice at the breakfast buffet with scrambled eggs and bacon or cold hams and cheese, cereals, pastries , yoghurt and fruit. There is also a roof terrace where you can have a drink and admire a better view over Florence.
