Stayed with husband and 9 yr old in late August for, very unfortunately, only one night. Wished we had stayed longer. Everything is first rate: lovely public spaces, good breakfast, extremely clean, nice room amenities. Very good value for the great rate we got through Olotel.
If you are serious about the Uffizi, this hotel couldn't be better: it is right next door. Get a 'Friends of the Uffizi' pass that allows you to go in and out as many times as you want without lining up. That way, you can spend an hour and then go clear your head and come back again.. and again... and again. Fantastic value since it also includes unlimited access to the Academy and other attractions as well. A much better deal than the 'Florence pass' which only permits one entry per museum/attraction. (Tip: if you have enough lead time, order the 'Friends' pass online before you leave home and they'll mail it to you so you don't even have to bother picking it up when you arrive).
Back to the hotel... the only thing that stops me from giving this 5 stars is the rock hard mattress and pillows. I like a firm mattress but this was quite something else. Mind you, that seemed to be the trend in all the places we stayed in Italy so maybe this is a preference for Italians? But, despite that, I would highly, highly recommend this hotel.
