The hotel is located in the heart of Florence, my husband and I didn't use any kind of transport at all!! All landmarks are at a walking distance..
When we checked-in they informed us that we have been upgraded to the biggest Suite in the Hotel, it was a great surprise but once we reached the Suite and saw the view.. OMG!! it was just Amazing, you can see from the window the full Piazza Santa Maria Novella and everyday at around 4:00 or 5:00 PM there was a group of very talented musicians who came and played very nice music in the Piazza :)
The staff is wonderful & helpful, the breakfast was good and the room was huge and even included a Jacuzzi..
On top of the terrace there is a very nice swimming pool
In front of the hotel, there a variety of great restaurants.
The below pictures are the view from our Suite :)
