Our fourth time at the property. Staff is always friendly and professional. Not inexpensive, but true value as the rooms are incredibly clean, plenty of amenities, great location to walk to the Duomo, Academia, Uffizzi, etc. Concierge service has never let us down on restaurant recommendations/reservations. First class.

The views from the terrace and bar are magnificent. The rooms are very big even for American standards. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The location next to the Arno and overlooking Ponte Vecchio nut not next to it and its crowds is superb.
