We stayed for 3 nights for my husband's birthday & were almost scared to believe they hype.....but from the minute we had our welcome glass of prosecco, seated on the veranda looking at the stunning scenery, we knew we were going to love it.
Then we had the treat of being shown to our room, the Alfresco suite, which the hotel had upgraded us to. It was just stunning. It took our breath away (the ceiling alone is worth spending 10 minutes looking at)
The only slight downside, in our opinion, was the restaurant. It's downstairs, & once there it could have been anywhere, as there is no view & it lack atmosphere. We found the breakfasts good, but the evening meal was hugely overpriced for what it was. We had far better meals in Florence for half the price.
However, the room, the staff, the hotel, the views & the history seeping out of every crevice more than make up for this.
Would we go back? Yes please!
