A great location within easy walking distance of all of the main sites in Florence and less than 10 minutes walk from the main train station (SMN). It is also located on Florence's premier shopping street with the likes of Prada,Gucci and the rest of the posy designer shops. Plenty of bars and restaurants also within a few minutes stroll.
Our room at the front of the hotel was spacious, clean and comfortable and had a large bathroom.The only criticism is that the lighting was somewhat inadequate and the room felt gloomy - this was not however a problem for us as it was simply a haven to spend the night!
Breakfast perfectly acceptable by european standards without being exceptional. However, a plus point is that breakfast is served until noon so if you want to get off early to see one of the major attractions before the queues get frustratingly long, you can do so and be back for a later breakfast.
The staff are very friendly and helpful and this is a perfect place to stay for a short break in Florence. However, please note that there is a longish flight of stairs from street level so if you have any mobility problems or have difficulty in climbing stairs, stay somewhere else.
