All the main sights and attractions of Florence are in a 1km radius of this boutique hotel located at the northern end of Ponte Vecchio. The décor of the hotel is warm and welcoming. Our room was cozy and spacious. The staff was always courteous and helpful. Concierge assisted us with our Chianti tour and more. We were a little surprised when we learned that they don’t serve breakfast at the hotel. However, they said that we can dine in either Gallery Art Hotel (10m from the entrance of the hotel) or Hotel Lungarno (just on the other side of Ponte Vecchio just on the river bank) which turned out to be a great alternative. The continental breakfast had a quite wide and nice selection. The iPad on the elevator was fun: new pictures of people everytime you ride it. There were some minor issues such as elevator breaking down and the daily not being able to connect to the wi-fi (was told because of the number of guests on the terrace trying to connect). However, overall we had a good time at the hotel.
PS: For those who are planning to drive to the hotel. Being located in the "pedestrian" area, the hotel doesn’t offer free parking. They work with a nearby garage which will charge you 35 EUR per day plus 5 EUR for each time you ask for your car.
