As i like my luxury ( clean bath-shower-toilet-bed) i opted for a 4 star hotel for my stay i Florence.
This hotel has recently been refurbished and you can clearly see that. The staff are very helpful and accomodating, which makes up for most of the stuff lacking. The room was small with a single window which looked out over Florences rooftops. The bathroom was new and functioning very well. Just the bed was horrible to sleep in. I arrived on a sunday and it seems in Italy nothing gets done on that day. The temp was 30C....and the AC was not functioning..sleeping at night was impossible in that heat. A call to the reception and they turned the temp down.....i did not notice it at all. Also my safebox was not working.
The next day, i got a new electronic key and everything was working perfectly: safe box and AC!
Breakfast was good, for everyone something to choose from, wether ur a veggie or a meaty.
The hotel is situated about 4 blocks from the city center and walking is a must! Unbelevable atmosfere and good food. There are wine bars and restaurants all around, including in the same street. Opposite is a small minimart for emergencies.
Roomservice is limited to breakfast.
Overall they are striving for a 4-star status, which they probably will achieve. Its just, that they're not there yet.
