If you want: (1) a wonderful view of the city of Florence (including the Duomo), (2) a comfortable terrace to sip wine or have breakfast, (3) experience the feel of staying in a rustic medieval residence, (4) stay within walking distance of all the major sites but avoid typical tourist traps, and (5) experience the local flavors and hangouts, then this is the hotel for you.
P. Guadagni is located in the Piazza Santo Spirito and hosts an open market and a string of restaurants with excellent ambiance and outdoor seating well into the warm evenings. Gusta Pizza, Il Canapone and Enoteca Pitti Gola e Cantina are some of the dining spots within a few hundred feet. The ponte vecchio is but a few blocks away and the duomo is a very easy walk also. For the best views ask for a superior double room (acres of space - not literally acres) and is extremely comfortable. Be warned, wifi signal is weak on the upper floors but no problems on the beautiful terrace area adjoining the dining/breakfast room.
The bed we got was a bit uncomfortable on one side but these things are hit or miss at any given hotel.
I would definitely stay here again. For anyone visiting Florence or any other city for that matter is to download the trip-advisor app for that specific city, that way you will have all the restaurants and attractions along with a map and no need for internet or cellular service to access this information.
