Hotel is just in the middle of everything,that matters inFlorence,but this causes a bit of problems for those,who arrive by car-GPS does not work very well in the maze of narrow streets of old city,but it is not a major problem.
Hotel is beautiful,not to say charming,but it has shortcomings,because it was not built as a hotel in our modern times,so compromises between modern expectations and old charms are visible.
Rooms are large,clean,bathtooms as well.
Sevice is not to the highest standard,I had an argument with receptionst,who wanted to photocopy my credit card,which is not a acceptable practice.
Valet parking works fine,both in and out.
Best of all is breakfast room and breakfast itself.Room is absolutely marvelous,table settings in grand style,do not miss it!
Bottom line : do not expect moden amenities in ancient palace!Just enjoy it as is.
