We stayed here for three nights in May. The hotel is centrally located just a block from the Ponte Vecchio and a ten minute walk to Palazzo Vecchio. It is a three star property which is clearly stated (and priced) on the hotels website. I choose to book through their site as the rate was slightly lower than what could be found online at the time. Our room was large with a high ceiling and oversized windows that looked over an interior courtyard which made for a quiet night’s sleep.
Our rooms were cleaned and tidied each day and the hotel overall was clean and decorated with ceramic tile floors and rustic furniture. The staff were friendly and accommodating and gave us a wonderful restaurant recommendation. We ended each night up on the rooftop where we were served by two lovely ladies who poured a very generous glass of wine. From the roof you can see all of Florence, the Pitti Palace is down the block and the Boboli Gardens directly behind the hotel.
My mother who is in her sixties and in good health had no problems getting around the property but I would not recommend this hotel if you have mobility issues. The steps are unavoidable, there is an elevator but you will have to climb a flight of stairs to get to it. Inside the hotel there are steps to the rooms and to the rooftop as well.
