This hotel is slap bang in the center of historic Florence and you can easily walk to all the major attractions. That in itself is a huge plus.
My bedroom was very nice with tea and coffee making facilities, robe/slippers etc, bed was fab. The bathroom however was dated in comparision with no bathtub and no rooms available with one - so I made do.
The breakfast is OK. If you like your coffee in the morning they have pots of filter stewing which is disappointing considering you're in Italy. They made me a fresh one though when I asked - it's a hassle though.
Angels winebar/restaurant is quite mod and very popular with local revellers at the weekends. You'd be doing well to even get into the place on Saturday pm; not good if you want a quiet glass of whatever in your hotel. Intended to eat here on Sunday evening but it was closed. Nice hotel with no restaurant - not good.
The hotel advertises that it has a spa - no information available on this in the room.
Sarky dame on reception as well.
All in all though a good option in Florence.
