This hotel is within historic center of Florence (pedestrian only area). This charming hotel has wonderful ambiance and we found staying there, enhanced our visit to Florence. We stayed for four nights in mid-June
The hotel's historic features are well accentuated with modern conveniences ( elevators and a/c) and clean modern bathrooms. We spent our first night in a large room with fresco ceiling that was spacious and on the south side of the hotel ( not on Porta Rossa itself). We had read/ were aware of the street noise complaints from other tripadvisor reviewers - these stem from the old windows and casing. This room was quiet however, the A/c stopped working during the night.
We reported the a/c problem the following morning. After a day out sightseeing, we returned to find the a/c was still not working in our room. While the front desk mgr offered to send someone to look into the problem again, we didnt want to chance another a/c outage during the heatwave. We asked for another room, and as it was the weekend, and the hotel full, we were upgraded to a jr suite, facing Porta Rossa on the first floor just above the lobby. The room and bathroom were clean a nicely appointed with very high ceilings. But regular street noices ( including street cleaning machines in the am etc) could easily be heard. We had ear plugs and used them for the remaining nights and didnt find it a problem.
The hotel itself is in a very safe area and well maintained. The front desk was helpful. We found the beds comfortable. The wi-fi connection was generally ok, but some delays.
While there is no attached garage to the hotel, they have a valet/ car park service that we used that worked well.
Overall, based on price, location and ambiance we would recommend this hotel for your stay in Florence.
