It is a bit unusual when you arrive to the hotel since it's located on the second floor, but once you enter, it is a wonderful home away from home hotel. I would recommend a cab from the train station to the hotel when you arrive as we were a bit warm after walking about 20 minutes with our suitcases.
There is an antique lift that is small but worked just fine. The lobby had a great selection of information books about Florence and other books and movies, and free Internet.
The hotel was well located for walks into the city center, about 6 minutes to Accademia and 15 minutes to Duomo and we were happy to not be in the noisiest part of the city.
Breakfast was delicious and plentiful (with fresh cappuccinos and espressos) and we appreciated the fruit salad and chocolate croissants, meats and cheese, pastries, yogurts, etc. It got us off to a great start each day.
The best thing is the wonderful owners and staff! They were incredibly helpful and went out of their way to answer our questions, recommend restaurants, and help us have a fabulous time while in Florence. They were incredibly generous with their time and hospitality. They drove us to our Florence walking tour and to the train station on our departure.
We thank you Marco (and everyone else) for making our stay memorable.
