I cannot say enough good things about this stay. EVERY SINGLE STAFF MEMBER (of the family that run this hotel) was courteous, outgoing, polite, friendly, helpful... We were made to feel very comfortable, and were told by the couple that own this place that "we have a home here whenever we're in Florence."
My husband and I have stayed in A LOT of Italian hotels with our baby, and this was by far the best place. We will definitely return.
Breakfast selection was magnificent, and better than you'll find at the typical Italian hotel. Mario, the gentleman who served breakfast, kept the space clean, the food stocked, and gave my daughter a balloon each day.
The rooms are neat and spacious, with an authentic Italian feel. Beds get made each day while you're out.
The courtyard is pretty and quiet, and you'll enjoy the closeness to attractions, as well as being removed enough from the hustle and bustle of the streets.
The front desk is always staffed, round the clock. The personnel are all knowledgeable, and even recommended several music shops and restaurants, when I asked. We were also able to check the hours of operation for a local church, with their help and their computer.
This is a classy hotel, family-friendly, and is definitely run by people who care for their customers' enjoyment and comfort. Great value as well.
