Nice staff, family owned and very helpful. The bathroom had recently been redone so nice and clean. The room was in dire need of repainting and the air conditioner needed a clean filter. No screen on the window to open it at night to let some air in (mosquitos in Florence are pretty active), only screen was in the bathroom. Very little was needed to make this room nicer. I understand that Florence is a prime location but the price for the room was too expensive given its quality. Over 20 years that I live in Italy and still cannot understand why substandard quality has high costs. Good location, close to the station and historical center. Breakfast area is quite unique with its wood ceiling and panoramic view. They should keep either keep windows open or cool it in the summer so people can sit in there and enjoy it in hours other than breakfast because the room is a gem.
