Hotel Royal is a beautiful villa built in the 1700's, which is now a hotel. There is a big garden and pool (which they charge 8 euro per day for), which would be good in Summer. Our room on the first floor had plenty of room, comfortable beds and a good sized bathroom, with plenty of hot water and fluffy towels. There is only free wifi in the lounge and breakfast room, but the lounge is lovely, with big comfortable armchairs. Breakfast was good, with cereal, croissants and pastries, rolls, ham, cheese, yoghurt, juice and coffee. The staff were helpful, without being overly friendly. The hotel is a bit out of the way, about a 10 minute walk to the station and the town centre, about 5 minutes to the market. We found this to be a good thing. It was very quiet at night, and with shutters on the windows it was very dark, so we slept very well. Also, at restaurants in this area you get a better meal for less money. We were very happy with Hotel Royal and would recommend it. Do yourself a favour while in Florence and grab a pizza at Gusta Pizza - delicious and cheap.
