2nd time felt even better than the first time. So to some it all up:
1) great great location, cca 15 min walking from city centre (meaning the Cathedral), and you can really go straight all the way from the hotel, following 1 road, no turns, so its almost impossible to get lost, big shop where you can buy all necessities is like 2 mins walking from the hotel, excellent breakfast place for croissants and capuccinos 'Minni' is just 1 minute away and brilliant restaurant 'Perseus' is about 3 minutes away. Airport is 10 mins away by car, train station 20 mins on foot. At the same time, its in quiet area, without heavy traffic. Does it sound unbelieveble? Yes, it does, but its true nevertheless.
2) beautiful old-style interier, with original furniture and decorations etc.
3) very pleasent and friendly owner and personal, willing to help - they adviced us which other nearby cities are worth visits, which restaurants we should try, gave both us tourist map of Florence, checked for us opening hours of garden we wanted to visit, showed interest in our plans...
4) all of this you will get for very very reasonable price
This is my 2nd review, so I tried not to mention the same things I wrote already. Anyone interested can check my previous review from June 28, 2013 for more details.
To all of you reading the bad reviews for this hotel, dont pay much attention to them. I checked most of them and if you look closely, you will find out that it comes from i.e. person that didnt stay at the hotel at all, or person expecting luxury and 24/7 service as in 5 star 300 EUR per night hotel, or comments like 'he helped me and arranged what I wanted but I saw in his eyes that he didnt't want to, so I count this as a negative'. Also if you look closely, these reviews doesnt contain much information about the the facility, what does it contain, what the rooms look like, where is it situated, its just emotion driven, not objective, not reliable.
