Ten star worthy! Absolutely lovely Autograph Collection Hotel within 5 min of the center of the city. The room and balcony where exquisitely maintained and beautiful. The staff where simply fabulous. Everything from our welcome, parking, the bar and breakfast was one of the best experiences in beautiful Italy thus far. Life is about the journey not the destination. We highly recommend you consider this as part of your Italian journey visiting the beautiful Florenze. We will be coming back to Florence in Dec to spend our first Christmas abroad and will only stay here. David awaits your arrival! Grazie mille!

My wife stayed here for one night--we had an excellent stay! We highly recommend. Upon arrival, the hotel immediately gave us an upgrade. We appreciated that very much--the room was excellent. The location is great, about 15 minute walk from the center. The breakfast was very good too. You order ala carte in the restaurant. If you are going to Firenze this a great place to stay.

Hotel in 15 min walking distance to the historic Florence center. Rooms are clean and on the top floor they come with a large balcony, overlooking the city.Staff very friendly, especially Marco was very helpful and professional. Good breakfast, good WiFi and a pool complete the excellent location. When you arrive by car you drive to the entrance, unload your luggage (they bring it to the room) and they take you car to some parking and bring it back when you want to leave, price € 32, but worth every penny! Many great restaurants near the hotel! All in all a great place for a few days in Florence.

We chose this hotel as it is a Marriott partner and we had points. We wanted to stay a bit away from the city center as we hoped it would be more quaint and quiet. We did not in fact enjoy this part of town and would choose to stay closer next visit. Choose a room on the garden or pool view side of the hotel. We did not and there were people drinking and children playing until nearly 2 am both nights in front of the hotel. We do realize this is not the hotel's fault but keep this in mind when booking. On the negative side, the hotel seems a little tired/rundown. August and Covid are certainly trying times for the travel/hospitality industry. It was certainly not fully occupied when we visited so that was pleasant but maybe it was understaffed. Positives - the rooms are large and lovely - decorated with beautiful art and antiques. The bathrooms are large, clean and well appointed. The breakfast by the pool each morning was lovely and Federico was an excellent host, making sure all our needs (complete with scaring birds away) were taken care of. He was a highlight of our stay! Again, the walk to the city center would be the main reason we would not choose this hotel again. It added many walking miles & cab fares to our short, 3 day stay.
