Before we got to Florence, I read the reviews and paid attention to the negative stuff as I always advise people. I figured we could handle the location, the lack of included breakfast, and the wi-fi, especially since we were staying on points. It's always great to stay for free and makes all those nights away from home easier to swallow.
OK, the wifi: For God's sake make it available to at least 2 devices! Seems silly, but no one, especially a couple, travels with only one device. Asking us to pay 9 euros more per day seems like an excuse to rip us off. I had no problem with the speed as some have written about.
The breakfast: Marriott's top tier guests, the ones that stay more than 75 nights per year, normally are provided with access to the concierge room so that you can get a coffee and something to eat. Not usually a big, sit down breakfast, but a roll or a bowl of cereal. But coffee for sure! At the AC Firenze that was not available unless we paid 12 euros each per day. Well, I don't think I'm a cheap guy, but there's no way I'm dropping 24 EUROS on coffee and a roll. Give me a break.
The room was good, clean, size fine for us. Walls are thin, so be aware. Staff nice enough, a little standoffish, Location, meh. We walk a lot, so not too bad for us. But this hotel is NOT in the center of things. We took a lot of taxis too. If you need to be in the center of historic district, this isn't for you.
I would stay here again if I were going on points. If not, I would pick something closer to the center of town.
