Originally I booked 3 nights and ended up staying six and made Florence my hub for exploring Tuscany. It is a lovely boutique style hotel that has great Florentine charm. My room was very large for a European hotel with a pristine bath that included a deep soaking tub. The tub was great after a long day exploring the city. In addition, I had a beautiful view of Santa Maria Novella. The location is quiet but very centrally located. Please remember you are in Florence which is a city so by definition there is some noise but I thought it was very quiet.
The staff was very professional and helpful from dinner reservations to printing off tickets for me with a smile. The housekeeper was lovely and quite frankly I wanted to bring her home with me. I feel bad that I cannot remember her name. One thing that stood out to me was that a housekeeper never knocked on my door and interrupted me. They cleaned the room on my schedule. The overall service was seamless and anyone who travels a lot knows how rare that is.
I would definitely stay there again and recommend it as it was recommended to me. About a 5-10 minute walk from almost everything. Thanks for a great experience,
