The hotel is in a great location, about a 10 minute walk from the Piazza Duomo, and about one or two blocks up from the river. Everything is in walking distance.
The first thing that struck us was our reception from grandson Tommaso (it's a family business) at reception. He was genuinely very warm and quick to offer help and advice. We were on honeymoon, and when I told them that they left us a special welcome and gift in our room.
The hotel itself is a superbly decorated, and you feel very much in the center of Florence from as soon as you scale the stairs.
They also have a happy hour where you can have free bruschetta and prosecco or chianti. You'll get a chance to chat to your fellow guests, or just enjoy some free and delicious food and drink.
I would definitely say that if you're unsure of what to do or where to go, just ask one of the family for advice and they'll draw on maps, explain highlights and book attractions or tables for you.
We adored our time in Venice, and that was in no small part thanks to the hotel and it's family of staff.
