We found FirenzeSuite on TripAdvisor, and once again the reviews and comments were realistic and helpful, if under-stated. We found this hotel/bed and breakfast to be charming, super-clean, spacious, well-appointed and wonderfully located.
FirenzeSuite is a small hotel with the feel of a collection of apartments. It is not the sort of hotel where you sit in the lobby and watch the world go by. Rather, when we were not out and about experiencing Florence's incredible mixture of old-world history and new world fashion/ culture, we hung out in our very comfortable, spacious room. I will add that there is a very nice lobby room, but it was generally empty during our visit. Which was fine with us.
At the same time we knew that if we needed some information or assistance we could find our wonderful hosts and they were always generous with their time and knowledge. This element of FirenzeSuite is much closer to a bed and breakfast than a Hotel. The hosts live in one of the "apartments" on-site, and there is not someone sitting at the front desk 24/7. But if you need them, they are there and you just need to find them.
One other comment - the in-room breakfast is a welcome way to start the day, and comes with generous portions. As noted elsewhere, it is carb-heavy. So enjoy, lace-up your walking shoes, and go out and work it off as you experience Florence.
Our rating is all 5's except for service. This is not a complaint, just a recognition that this is not a full-service hotel but more like a bed and breakfast in this respect.
