We had a large triple room that was very clean and quiet but very dark. Only two small windows and they looked out over rooftops. We could walk to the center of town very easily. There is no lift and you have to manage your luggage up one floor to reception and then navigate more stairs if your room is on an upper floor. The breakfast consisted of packaged croissants, cereal, yogurt, lunchmeats, cheese & juice. The best part of breakfast was the cappuccino which was plentiful and good. There is no street parking in or around Florence. Don't chance getting towed away. There is a large parking lot directly in front of the hotel but be prepared to pay $25 US for 24 hours. We were 30 minutes late picking up our car and they charged us another $5. There is no free parking in Florence. We left some important documents at our hotel in Lake Garda. The manager at Cestello was most helpful and called the hotel in Lake Garda and arranged for the documents to be mailed to us in Rome. He would not accept anything for the phone call charges.
