“Wonderful location and staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

The Italian translation of this hotel is the hotel of the gold smith. We have two teenagers and had a room with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a small living room and a small kitchen area. The view from both our room and the hotel bar at the top of the hotel was incredible!!!! You could see Florence laid out below with the Dumo and the friendliest bartender to take care of you! The location was perfect! If you wanted to walk to shops, to the historic buildings, run down to the large park or hike up to Michelangelo's house or find the perfect place to eat or just stand next to the river and watch people... this place was great! I would return tomorrow!

This lovely hotel overlooking the Arno was indeed one of the settings for the Merchant-Ivory film "A Room with a View". My room had sweeping views of the river including the nearby Ponte Vecchio. The room was a generous size, nicely decorated and had a lovely bathroom. The food was quite good, and the concierges were helpful and friendly. The hotel now has a much more contemporary feel than in the movie, as it was redone in the 1990's. Perfect location, nearly next door to the Uffizi, and in the heart of the old lovely Florence. Amazing breakfast room and rooftop bar.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask about different sizes and types of rooms - and about the view.

The hotel is clean, warm, and gracious with spacious rooms. Delicious and plentiful breakfast buffet. Rooftop bar looking at the Duomo with nice complimentary appetizers and wine and drink of excellent quality. And saving the best information for last, the location of this hotel for touristic activities is superb. Walk out the door and you are 3 minutes from the Uffizi and the Galileo Museum. Footsteps from the Arno River and views of the Ponte Vicheo. And restaurants are plentiful and within easy walking distance. An unusual plus is drop off at the door of the hotel when utilizing taxi service.

You could not be more central in Florence. I could walk to everything! Super friendly and accommodating staff patiently answered any question I had! Unbelievable breakfast buffet as well. They also had a couple of awesome dinner recommendations as I was getting a little tired of Pizza at this point in my tour of Rome/Florence/Venice

We stayed here for three nights during our honeymoon throughout Italy. We had a great experience – the hotel upgraded our room to one with two bathrooms, a kitchenette, etc. They even let us borrow a converter when we forgot ours.

Pros:
- Great breakfast that they kept open much longer than advertised to accommodate late comers
- Welcome drink and snacks in the bar – great rooftop bar
- Fabulous location next to the Uffizi, makes making reservations a cinch
- Very nice hotel with a beautiful lobby and breakfast room

Cons:
- We were walking from the train station to hotel, which are basically the northern and southern parts of town, respectively. On the cobblestone roads, it wasn’t great but after the initial trek the location is fabulous.

No free internet in the rooms. It sounds like it was free in the common areas but we didn’t know this until afterwards. :-(

Generally, we loved our stay here and will definitely recommend this in the future!

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor, in our of the apartment/suite style rooms and had no problems with noi...
