One of the best hotels we've ever stayed at. The location is fabulous, the rooms are lovely but what separates this hotel from other hotels are the staff and level of service.
We found everyone we dealt with at the hotel was professional and courteous but more importantly good humoured. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was a pleasure.
Location-wise, as others have said, the hotel is right in the centre of Florence, indeed the old Roman column said to mark the city centre is right outside the front door. The Palazzo Vecchio and the Duomo are both only two minutes walk away. The Mercato Centrale and the Ponte Vecchio, less than five.
The rooms are classic and understated, decorated in earthy neutral tones. Our room was beautifully turned down every night, a weather report left on our bed, fresh mineral water by the side. If there was anything else we wanted; a late night hot chocolate or a mid-afternoon tea it was at our door within five minutes. Just as importantly it was always delivered by someone with a smile and who knew what they were doing.
For us this is the only place to stay in Florence.
