Grand Hotel Minerva, Florence, Italy
Hi the hotel was in a great location. However the rooms were not as shown on the website. While we were given a upgrade we found it to be not to the star rating you would expect. The food and drinks were expensive, so we found alternative venues. We cut our stay short and found alternative accommodation at a better price.
