We stayed here one night before our flight home to British Columbia in Canada. We dropped our rental car off by the airport and then took a taxi for (12 Euro) to the hotel. It was literally a 5-10 minute ride. We were pleasantly surprised when we entered the hotel to a beautifully sparkling clean entry. The gentleman at the desk was extremely pleasant and in no time we were up in our room (even before check in time). The room was spotless. We then wanted to head into Florence to look around and after collecting the bus tickets at the desk we went and waited for the bus. A few minutes later it came and shortly after we were in downtown Florence area. We walked all over for 4 hours and then got back on the bus to the hotel. The only glitch we had was that we forgot to ask the bus driver when we got off what the bus # was that we would return on. But we simply asked other bus drivers that were at the spot they dropped us off at and they told us which one to get on. Then we wanted to have some dinner at 4:00 p.m. We had travelled all over Italy and because we stayed in Eurocamps and cooked many of our meals we were not aware that Italians do not open their restaurants for dinner until approximately 7 p.m. So it was either go back into Florence where the touristy area was for dinner or eat what we could find at the small grocery store across the street. Being exhausted from all the walking we decided to just eat snacks which was a bit disappointing as we were looking forward to trying the "Pizza Man" restaurant that the hotel personnel had recommended, but now we know to plan a snack later afternoon and then a late dinner if dining outside the tourist areas in Italy. Loved the hotel and would definately stay again if wanting a hotel close to the airport. A word of caution though: on our return trip to the airport at 0430 in the morning we were charged 22 Euro for the literally 5 minute trip to the airport (no traffic at that time of the morning). Wasn't goint to argue with the driver but was shocked at the markup of the charges. Next time I would ask before getting in the taxi!!
