“This hotel is fantastico!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

We have traveled to Florence several times over the past 10 years and this hotel is among our favorites. Every room is special. Some have fantastic views and some have magnificent mosaics on the ceiling. All have antique furniture. One thing is for sure, the staff is always friendly and helpful and the rooms are spacious and clean. Enjoy an evening cocktail on the expansive veranda or in the cozy library. The staff is pleased to offer drinks to suit.
Ask Laura for fine dining recommendations within walking distance of hotel. Quattro Leoni is among the best. Another suggestion would be Natalinos. It's a little bit of a walk but well worth it.
The best pizza in town is around the corner from hotel at Gusto.

Room Tip: The gold room (#2) is bellisimo

Booked this hotel on the internet after reviewing comments on Tripadvisor. Stayed here for 3 nights and we were very well looked after. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
Don`t be put off by the look of the building. The hotel is on the second floor and you have to enter the building via a huge, brown, wood door and up with the elevator to reach the hotel reception.
The room was cosy and authentically decorated with views of Florence roof tops, the Pitti Palace and the Duomo across the river (just). Well sound proofed double glazed window ensured we had a nice, quiet sleep.
Breakfast was good with a selection of cereals, fruits, pasteries, etc and real fruit juice! There is a lovely big, long balcony overlooking the square, ideal for evening drinks.
Special thanks to Rita who made our stay very welcoming!

This hotel is so beautiful! It's elegant rooms and lovely loggia overlooking Piazza San Spirito make you feel like you're on the Grand Tour. The hotel is on the top two floors of a 16th century palazzo, and you feel as if you have stepped back in time when you arrive. The rooms are so lovely, with frescoed ceilings and spectacular views. (We could see the Duomo from our bathroom window!) Our teenage daughter was with us, so we requested a room for three people. We were shown to two attached rooms with a bathroom--much nicer than most hotels would provide. The staff is welcoming and very helpful. The owner called four or five restaurants for us before he decided that he'd chosen the right spot for our group. I think the location was terrific because it was within walking distance of everything, but a couple of blocks off the beaten path, so the noise wouldn't be bad even at the height of the tourist season. We were there in March, so it was very quiet. I wish I could move in! I can't recommend it highly enough.

As with many of the other reviewers I have to agree that this is a great hotel in a fantastic location - perfect for exploring Florence.
I visited in August with my wife and two young children. The staff were fantastic and ensured our stay was very comfortable. A good breakfast was also provided which we ate overlooking the city on the terrace - not a bad start to the day !
One thing to bear in mind if you were arriving by car was that the hotel does not have a car park but can arrange space at one around the corner. This was not cheap and therefore if you are staying for more than one night it may be worth exploring if you can park further out and save yourself some euro's.
Finally, I would also recommend Gusta Osteria (Via De' Michelozzi 13/r) which is just off the square which the hotel sits.

They were very kind and nice. I left my iphone in the room and they had it when I went back to ask them if I had forgotten it there. The breakfast was great too. If you want to stay in the less touristy part of town then this is your best bet.
