After four weeks in a comfortable flat but rather noisy area of Rome, it was blissful to stay at the Four Seasons Firenze for the weekend. I emailed ahead to say we would be arriving around 12.30 and they responded they would try and accommodate us for the early arrival.
We did arrive early and only waited 20 minutes to get into the room.
We were in the Conventino part of the hotel. The room was beautifully decorated and overlooked the gardens. The beds were quite comfortable and the room very quiet.
The only caveat to the quietude was a wedding on Saturday night with music playing in the garden. (However, maybe because of the vino with dinner,I did not have a problem falling asleep.)
Also, regarding the atmosphere, some of the other guests seemed a bit "dodgy",to use a British term,i.e. loud use of profanities and coarse jokes. Of course we are past the era when hotels can screen their guests.
I can only reiterate what other reviewers have said regarding the service: from the receptionists to the waiters to the chambermaids, everyone could not have been more cheerful and helpful.
Once I recover from the cost of the visit I would happily go back again.
