Traveled with my two children, ages 10 and 14. We stayed in Room 7, which has a separate bedroom upstairs, accessed by a cute spiral staircase, and a fold-out couch downstairs. Great location; the hotel is just outside of the main bustle of the Ponte Vecchio area, but only a quick walk to it. NEVER any safety concerns, and I felt very comfortable walking to the hotel at any hour. Plenty of shops and restaurants in close proximity. The room was clean, comfortable, and VERY spacious. Free Wifi, but as others mentioned, a little spotty at times. Our room had paintings on the ceiling from the 1800's...the place is just loaded with historical charm. Absolutely gorgeous courtyard downstairs, with plants, seating areas, fish and a turtle. For longer stays, if you want to do stove top cooking or clothes washing, there are community rooms where there are a stove/oven and a washer/dryer. There is no a/c (a rare find in Florence...even the museums/shops didn't have it), but there are fans....it was 95 degrees (!) in Florence while we were there, but we did fine with just the fans. Breakfast (included) was at a cafe next door - LOVED it, fresh squeezed OJ, cappuccino, pastries or sandwich. The staff at the hotel are very accommodating, and go out of their way to assist when you have questions or need help. I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel, and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
