We are currently spending our last night of 3 at this wonderful hotel on the first leg of our honeymoon. In all honesty we do not want to leave. It is quite simply the best hotel in which we have stayed and ticks every imaginable box. The property is lavish, opulent, incredibly ornate and stunningly beautiful but with every possible modern amenity. The room had a beautiful view of the city and although not large, was really well set up with lots of storage space. The spa was fantastic and the pool and grounds were breathtakingly beautiful. The service was absolutely impeccable from start to finish and really earns this hotel a sixth or seventh star. For what the hotel offers and delivers this is also surely the best value 5 star option in Florence-in my opinion it is a real bargain. I don't understand why this hotel is not rated at the very top of the Tripadvisor ratings-it surely won't be long until it is at no.1. I also don't understand any criticisms leveled at this hotel by previous reviewers- during our stay nothing could have been better delivered. Thank you to all the staff for making this a wonderful start to our honeymoon.
