We stayed here in July of 2012 - in a quadruple room with our 2 kids. The hotel is super clean - and the room was very big for European standards. The room came with a king size bed and 2 twin beds that folded out from the sofa chairs. My only complaint about the hotel is that the kids found their beds very lumpy and uncomfortable. They complained about them every night!
However - the staff at the hotel were all wonderful - especially Frederico at the breakfast buffet! The breakfast was very good - and the front desk staff were all very helpful - with tips for restaurants, etc.
Florence is a wonderful city - and the hotel was ideally located. It was about 3 blocks from the Duomo - and 2 blocks from the outdoor market. It was close enough to the heart of the action - but still far enough away that you felt like a local! Hotel is also very close to the Accademia. It's about 7 or 8 blocks from the train station.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our hotel is right in the city center, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza San Marco , few steps away from Accademia (the museum where you can see the famous DAVID by Michelangelo). It's housed in two late 15th century building next each other. All rooms are different in size and position - executive rooms have a standard size - superior rooms are larger - de luxe and junior suite are very large with a sitting area. We have rooms overlooking the courtyard, gardens and several rooms overlooking Via Cavour which is the main street but 70% pedestrian and so it's not too noisy. All rooms have triple glasses and double windows. WI/FI available in all the rooms and the drawing rooms and it's free of charge if you have your own laptop or i-phone or i-pad. Bistrot restaurant next door "IL DESCO" open every day (12 till 10,30 pm but on Sunday it closes at 3,00 pm) with good menu' all day long (many organic products directly by the owner's farm. ... more less
