Great location between the duomo and Uffizi gallery. Our room was adequate and we had a large bathroom just down the hall. We were a little apprehensive about the detached bathroom, but it wasn’t bad because it was quite large so there was room to shower, change and get ready in which is not typical of small Italian hotels. There was an equipped kitchen which was nice to store snacks and drinks. There is no onsite parking, but there is a garage about a block or so away. Note-The hotel is in LTZ area so you WILL get a fine if you drive to it. However if you park in the garage near there, they register your car so you will not get the ticket. The reception wasn’t onsite when we arrived so we had to wait a while so be sure to coordinate your arrival prior to arriving.
The only problem was we booked the hotel via booking.com and the description indicated there was A/C and a TV which we found was wrong when we arrived since the building does not have A/C and apparently the TV was broken (but I didn’t see a place for one so not sure). The hotel said it was a booking.com mistake so we called booking.com and they said the hotel entered the wrong information as they do not control what they write. It took several phone calls and emails, but in the end, Il Gattopardo changed their description on booking.com and have us a 20% refund for the inconvenience.
