We had a delightful stay in March 2012 at Pamela's perfectly located Soggiorno. Warm and friendly, Pamela and Costanza were great hosts and made us feel welcome, gladly offering help with the parking garage, restaurants (we had terrific dinners at Trattoria Za Za and Birreria Centrale) and directions. We followed their directions and successfully navigated our way to their front door on the Piazza della Signoria; Pamela then called the garage and the attendant was there in 5 minutles to take our car to the garage - and then returned it on the morning of our departure. Yes, the 30 steps to the elevator were a challenge, but added an adventure to our stay. We stayed in the Red Room, which was large with a clean, modern bathroom, and a large window overlooking the courtyard behind the Soggiorno. There can't be a better location in Florence. It was a thrill each morning to step out the front door into the piazza and be greated by the spectacular Palazzo Vecchio, and we were two minutes from the Ponte Vecchio and five minutes from the Duomo. Our only regret was not spending a litle more and staying in the Golden Room overlooking the piazza. A highlight of our stay was meeting Pamela's father, Fabrizio, and listening to his stories about living in the building as a child and the history of Florence. The only shortcoming of the Soggiorno was breakfast. Other than the coffee and tea, I suggest you have breakfast at one of the nearby restaurants, or bring pastries back to the room. But, the tremendous location and friendly hosts more than made up for beakfast. We will definitely return to the Soggiorno on our next trip, and send our friends and family too.
The golden room would be worth the extra charge.
