One of the major concerns while booking for hotel accommodation abroad is whether the hotel is even 50% of the amazing pictures that they put up. But that is one thing you don't have to worry about when staying at Residenza Vespucci. The room, it's cleanliness, the view is exactly the same as the pictures you will see posted here!
My husband and me stayed here on our honeymoon and hence expectations were high. Though it is a small hotel, the experience outruns everything else. We were welcomed by a very warm hotel manager who helped us with the Hotel wifi connection on arrival itself.
The room was good, if you adore antique furniture you will love the room decor, we did for sure!
The spectacular view of the Arno is addictive, as we kept going back to the balcony to enjoy the sunrise, noon and sunset. The iron garden chairs with pretty flowers and lemon plants in the balcony are just charming.
The hotel is centrally located and you can walk up to all the popular spots within 15-20 mins.
The breakfast is served in all restaurant behind the hotel but it is not such a big problem as it is 5mins away. However the breakfast menu could be better as there are limited options.
My husband and me are used to a late dinner however there aren't many good options close by. So make sure you have an early dinner elsewhere or carry food to your room.
I would love to stay at the same hotel again the next time we visit Florence. It is a very very pleasant memory.
