We booked this hotel as an Expedia hotel + flight package and stayed for 5 nights. This hotel is in the best possible location for sightseeing in Florence. It is right on the Arno river and right next door to the Uffizi Gallery. It is within a 15 minute walk of all the major sightseeing venues. We had a wonderful room (#208) with a large terrace overlooking the narrow medieval street along side the Uffizi. The room was spacious, very clean and nicely furnished. The reception staff were all friendly, efficient, and helpful. Breakfast, in a delightful room with a frescoed ceiling and views of the Arno, was included with the room and we thought the quality of the food and service was very good. We gave this hotel a 4 instead of a 5 because the bed and the pillows were too hard for our liking. Two recent European hotel stays, one in Barcelona and one in Amsterdam, where the beds were firm but not hard, have convinced us that hard beds are not always the norm when traveling in Europe. All things considered, we would still highly recommend this hotel for its service and location.
