Nice historic hotel.
The room we got did not have a window to street. The room charge was calculated without actual extras. The breakfast restaurant was quite small and the breakfast was overpriced (€35 pretty person). Surprisingly for me the reception charged my bank card in USD and I got extra FX losses of €100 for 2 nights. They promised to reimburse them but I am not sure if it will happen - I have no paper for that.
Marvelous place! Very elegant design and medieval age decoration. Located at the heart of the city.
Staff, public areas, location
Rooms need to have a separate shower. Bathroom relatively small
The hotel was expensive but it delivered all the luxury we wanted for a wonderful stay right in the heart of Florence.
Some problems paying the hotel for the reservation using its electronic payment system.
Every aspect of our stay exceeded expectations. Noteworthy above all was the level of service. Staff was everywhere offering a cheery greeting and offer to help.
