The hotel is very new (opened in August 2012) with lovely décor and a fresh modern feel. The rooms are among the most spacious I have seen and the entire place is very clean. The location is fantastic - it is 2 minutes from the Duomo and less than 10 from Ponte Vecchio. If you are arriving by train, the hotel is a short walk from the station. So, convenient on all fronts. Located on Via del Conti, a small side street, you also escape the noise and crowds. Yes, there is some street noise but nothing that kept me up at night.
The best part of the experience, with all that said, is the staff. They are so friendly and welcoming, taking the time to get to know the guests. For 3 of my 4 days at this hotel, I was a solo traveler and the front desk staff scheduled tours and dinner reservations for me (along with providing directions and recommendations on where to shop and eat). They add to the charm of this already fantastic hotel and make this a truly special experience.
I have always enjoyed my travel to Florence but the city really won my heart this time due, in no small part, to the staff and hotel.
