This hotel will never qualify for an "official" 4-stars rating because the reception is open only 9a-9p and there is no room service. However, the rooms and amenities are definitely deserving of that rating. North Americans are easily disappointed by European hotels located in historic centers. Not this one! It is a unique property in historic Florence that will exceeds the expectations of the pickiest North American tourist.
Brand new, luxurious renovation located 300ft (yes! 300ft!) from the Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi. Large room with king-size beds with a mattress that is just as comfortable as the one we have at home. Several of the rooms are equipped with a high-tech mini kitchen.
Elena provided very friendly and courteous service.
Not easy to find as it is only identified by a small plaque next to the door. Just look for the door to the left of the Brown Sugar restaurant.
