Relais Il Cestello, Piazza di Cestello www.relaisilcestello.it, on the square, just facing the Arno, in the Oltrano. Fantastically centrally located, only two bridges from the Ponte Vecchio, and easily reached on foot from the Santa Maria Novella rail station. Request a room in the back if you want a sound sleep, as in the evening the Piazza can become a bit loud, as there is a night club next to the Relais. The room was large, well appointed with a comfortable bed, wardrobe, desk & chair and several other chairs. There was plenty of heat and hot water in the spacious room; the bathroom was clean, large, and was supplied with plenty of towels, shampoo, soap and a hair dryer. Breakfast was arranged in the reception room, with a lovely view of the Arno. Food was plentiful with a selection of coffees, teas, breads, fruit cheeses, meat and yogurts. Am a return customer, having first been to the Relais nearly 20 years ago. The Relais certainly has improved with age!
