Great hotel overall
The location was ideal for us; a little off the main area where the action and noise is but close enough that everything was walking distance.

The staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating, and the cleaning staff was super thorough - they even set out slippers for us before bed. The view from the rooftop is just insanity, one of the best views in Florence!

8/10 Very good

Great location. Ask for a room on a higher floor for better views. Our room temperature was always warm to hot. It never cooled down. Great view from the pool.

8/10 Very good

This hotel is gorgeous, great staff who are very friendly. The location is really good for exploring the city. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. We felt the bathroom let it down as it was a bit dated and badly designed so that the shower flooded the floor everytime you used it. Definitely go to the rooftop bar for a drink - the view is fabulous but as you would expect it is very expensive.

6/10 Good

Hotel was very overpriced and not good value for money During our 5 night stay on 2 days the room was cleaned properly I.e. dirty ashtray on balcony which was not removed despite making them aware of this, dirty mug not replaced, bathroom sink not cleaned, toiletries and complimentary water not replaced
