A really pleasant boutique hotel in the heart of Florence activities. The entire facility has been completely redecorated in a very interesting and tasteful way. The hotel only has 5 rooms and each has it's own theme. The room is nicely decorated with very modern bathrooms. Location is within blocks of Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio, etc. It is perfect for a person or couple without a car. The owner and staff were very courteous and made us feel extremely welcome during our visit. No request went unanswered. An enjoyable visiting room where breakfast is served and complimentary refreshments are available We definitely would stay here in a return to Florence.
Hotel does not have an elevator and one must go up two flights of steps. Staff handles your bags so not bad but could be a problem for someone having difficulty with steps. Hotel is tucked in a corner behind a merchants market so Taxis can not pull up to front door. However, distance from nearest corner is only about 50 meters.
