How to Get There
This hotels covers all needs for a city trip: Great location, comfortable and spaceous rooms, friendly staff and an excellent breakfast.
The spa area is immaculate, the hydropool offers an indoor and outdoor part (which was still open in early November, to our delight)
Everything was so beautiful. The location was perfect from the train to get around anywhere. The rooms were beautiful. The staff was so kind and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful. We were so pleased with out stay.
This was a nice home base in busy Florence. The location was good for walking pretty much anywhere we wanted to go in the city, and we appreciated the close proximity to the train station. It's not the most "glamorous" part of Florence, but it's convenient and easily accessible.
Our Junior Suite was spacious enough, although the bathroom felt a bit cramped (as most do in Italy). One tiny gripe was that the light in the shower is blue - this is fun for atmosphere I suppose, but for some reason was a little bit of an annoyance for me. I wish it could be optional (I suppose maybe it was, and I just couldn't figure out how to turn on the regular light in there!).
At any rate, overall the room was lovely and clean and quiet (we were on the courtyard side of the building, which I think was good luck). The courtyard garden is beautiful and we wished we hadn't forgotten our bathing suits - it would have been nice to enjoy the heated pool a little bit. This is a nice bonus to have in a bustling city like Florence.
We did eat dinner at the hotel restaurant one evening, and we were quite disappointed with our meal there. Very lackluster food, under seasoned, and overall just uninspired. The service there was also not up to par with the other service we received at the hotel.
This wasn't our favorite hotel during our stay, but it was comfortable and nice and overall we were happy with our choice!
