The location could not be better, just a very short walk to all the main sights in Florence: the Duomo, the Uffizi museum, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio, and the Gallery of the Academy. This is also the shopping district with many fine stores. Many good restaurants are also only a few steps away. The rooms in the hotel were very clean, modern, and comfortable, with a small refrigerator. Hot water plentiful, shower had adequate room with a shower door, bathroom clean with all standard amenities, towels clean. Internet access provided. They even have a courtyard for the smokers. The breakfast offered many selections. The staff was very, very helpful in arranging tickets for the museums and in helping with other travel problems. The staff could not have been better. The train station is a short taxi ride to the hotel. The hotel is on a beautiful, wide street limited to only pedestrians, but the taxis are allowed to drop you off and pick you up right at the door of the hotel. The hotel is not on the ground floor (this is a shopping district with many fine stores), it is on the second floor of the building. You have to look hard for the entrance (next to the Disney store), which looks like an entrance for an apartment. Once inside, on the ground floor, do not be put off by the hallway, there is a small elevator at the end of the hallway to take you to the lobby for the hotel, one floor up. A spacious stairway is next to the elevator. Only negative factor is that the reception desk closes around midnight or 1 a.m., so there is no one at the reception desk in the very early morning hours. We had a wonderful stay at this hotel.
