This is a very beautiful hotel and perfect for couples. It is a pleasant 30 minute walk from the centre of town but the hotel runs a shuttle in the morning and late afternoon if you don't fancy the walk. Hotel staff are very friendly and always willing to assist where required. Our room was lovely with a big king size bed and very luxurious bathroom. We had a view from our room over Florence. Only minor complaint was the 6 euro room service charge to deliver a pizza and juice to the room but really no different to any other 5 star hotel.
Would recommend if you want a luxury stay in Florence but want to be away from the centre. Ideal as well if you have hired a car.
