wonderful historic hotel.
Posted Apr 9, 2017
The staff was amazing. They helped above and beyond without complaints. They offered to help me repeatedly and called the airline when my luggage was lost for two days. The room was smallish but had lovely antiques and was very charming. The bathroom was very nice and good sized and light filled. We had the basic room and it was great. The only thing was the A/C was not on yet but they instantly brought us a fan which was fine and made us comfortable.
The lobby is just beautiful with a lovely bar and antiques and is very relaxing to have a glass of wine and read. The breakfast room was magnificent with ceiling frescoes and was the sight of the parliament meetings when Florence was the capitol of Italy. The breakfast was really good and quite extensive and the wait staff was very attentive.
The location was OUTstanding, a block from the Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery, two from Ponte Vechio and Sante Croce church, and a few blocks from the Duomo, The Arno, and the Piazza del Republica. It is next to the Bargello. Surrounded by great shopping.
We will definitely return.
