Via Tornabuoni ends at a square within walking distance of every museum and historical site in Florence. The hotel is located there with Tiffany's on one side and high end shops surrounding it. The Arno and bridges are a block in one direction and Uffizi etc in the other. But rooms are quiet on higher floors and little sound comes from the street to the roof garden.
A substantial breakfast is included and may be eaten on the roof where pigeons abound or in a breakfast room area where service is as good as any good restaurant.
The historical hotel shows signs of aging well in leather-bound books containing centuries of old guest registers with signatures of visitors over the time and there to be perused and signed by current guests. We were greeted with a fruit basket, plates and knives which stayed with us during our weeklong stay until we finished every good morsel. Refrigerator is too small for a quart of water or bottle of wine of your own
Rooms are varied. Check yours before saying it is OK. Ours was wonderfully spacious, but we were next to the elevator and the shower with a tiny glass enclosure literally emptied into the bidet room.. The toilet room was located across the entire very spacious room.
The cab from the train station refused to go into the street to deliver us (after 3:00 pm) but came to the front door as called by the hotel when we left (10 am).
