This hotel was recommended to us by our friends who stayed there on their honeymoon. The hotel was in a great location. The cab ride from the train station was under 10 minutes. It is on the other side of the arno but a 5 minute walk from the bridges going to the main section of Florence. A few minutes from the Pitti Palace and probably 5 minutes to the famous Ponte Veccicho. The piazza it is on is very nice. There are several good restaurants on the piazza. There is also an open air fruit/veggie ect. market we saw several times in the morning. There is an awesome pizza place around the corner- Gusta Pizza!
The hotel has a lot of stairs (on the inside) to get up to it so walking up with your luggage is not an option. There is an elevator. Twice someone did not shut the door properly so we had to walk up which is exercise. The staff was lovely and friendly. It has a great porch/veranda that you can sit out on. They serve free breakfast everyone morning which was great. The wifi was also free. The hotel was very clean and quiet. Our room was on the second floor and I would say very large with a nice bathroom. The bed was average. It could use an updated mattress.
It was good value for the money and we would stay there again.
