correct hotel..overated?
i stayed in the hotel 10 years ago and was very satisfied...that s why i returned. the hotel needs some brush up, bath room or dark wall paper(not dirty!). the check in was taken care by a relative unexperienced employee, rather reluctant to show me another room to compare with my room. other receptionists very professionel my room was spacious and comfortable, unfortunately dark and without view, though view was indicated the restaurant is not worthy of a 5 star hotel breakfast is fine, but service not as good as before. location quiet and in walkable distance to ponte vecchio nevertheless we had a good time, one cannot have it all
