We stayed on the 3rd floor (#36) which is a "triple room" 29 sq meters.. The bathroom is huge by European standards,with a bathtub almost large enough to swim in (slight exaggeration.) There is plenty of closet space,and drawers, very good lightening,and firm comfortable beds. Housekeeping was immaculate. Well glazed windows,very quiet-something that you will not easily find on the "tourist" side of the Arno River,which is a 10 min stroll at worst across the Vecchio Bridge.
The breakfast is very varied,with adequate offerings for most diets.The rolls served are still warm in the morning. There are hot items (scrambled eggs,bacon,and bean(if your British.) Wonderful Bulgarian-style yogurt,and 5 different fruit jams. The breakfast (which was included in our room price) was a great bargain. We found the staff to be very helpful,quiet fluent in English,and endlessly patient.
WiFi was excellent by both US and EU standards.(I was even able to stream a Netflix video while there.)
See other reviews for warmer weather use of their beautiful patio w/ view. There is fee parking next door @15Euro. It does not require a Houdini to get in and out of if you are familiar with European Hotel parking garages. (We did not have a need for parking,this time.)
After the crowds,noise and chaos of the Old Town across the river, I can't describe the utter pleasure each evening of crossing the River, to the relatively quiet and uncrowded Oltrarno neighborhood.
