Very happy with our stay at the Golden Tower Hotel. It was the last night of our Tuscany vacation and we couldn't have ended it better!
Golden Tower is in a fantastic location in Florence city center walking distance to everything! High end shopping only a block away (Salvatore Ferragamo, Prada, Gucci, etc) and many cafes and restaurants just outside the front entrance. We walked around town late into the night and felt very safe and secure.
Check-in was very quick and bellman brought us to our rooms. We booked the Classic room category and couldn't have been more pleased- very quiet and comfortable. Beautiful, spacious marble bathroom with wonderful towels and robes.
My only complaint about the room was the carpet. Who puts ivory colored carpet in a hotel room anyways??? Needless to say, it was a shade of greyish brown in most areas. I think some attempt had been made to clean it, but it was too far gone and needs to be replaced.
Breakfast was served just off the lobby area. It was great- hot and plenty of selection.
There is also a computer and printer for guest use which we found helpful for airline check-in and printing boarding passes.
Sara at the front desk made a few suggestions for dinner and we couldn't have been more pleased with her choice. When a restaurant is filled with locals, you know it's a good place!
Taxi to the Florence airport was about 25 Euros and took approx 20 min.
Overall, would definitely recommend this property to others and would stay there again if we return to Florence.
