Whenever I go to Florence i stay in this marvellous hotel. The hospitality is great: there are books to borrow, free wifi, business center, fitnesscenter. Moreover, in front of the hotel there is a small park where you can run (or have a walk).
Rooms are very comfortable and spacious so are the common spaces.
The only flaw isthe price of a dinner: price/quality report is not fair. Otherwise the buffet lunch is very good and served at a reasonable price.
If you come by car, there is free parking and it's easy to get out of the city to go Northward.
