We arrived in Florence by train, and the station is located about 15 minutes away from the hotel. If you don't have a lot of luggage and are feeling adventurous, you can walk to the hotel from the station. Florence is a small and beautiful city where you can just walk and walk and see it all. This hotel is practically located on the Ponte Vecchio, which is a huge bridge in Florence. On the hotel side of the bridge there are a lot of little restaurants and shops, there is also a little market where you can buy drinks and snacks for a very reasonable price. When you cross the bridge, there are more shops, a leather market and you get to all of the action in Florence. This hotel is definitely in a great spot because you can walk anywhere and always find your way back.
The staff was very friendly when we arrived, and quickly gave us our room. The room is pretty modern, but it is small much like all of the other European hotels. There were two twin beds that convert to a queen, and nice size bathroom with shower/tub combo. A well placed flat screen above the bed at an angle, a small fridge, and our room had a balcony with a view of the shops by the bridge down below. The complimentary breakfast offered at the hotel was excellent, and the restaurant where its served has great views of Florence. At night, the restaurant has happy hour where you can enjoy wine and prosciutto on the outdoor terrace with the most beautiful view overlooking Florence.
My husband and I absolutely loved this hotel. It was definitely one of our favorites during our trip to Italy and France. Next time I'm back in Florence I will be staying here again. Florence was actually our favorite city in Italy and I can't wait to go back!
