    5/5 Excellent

    Stayed here last year and this year. Fantastic staff that is very helpful. Breakfast is worth the stay and ladies in breakfast room are so nice and very attentive. Hotel is right in the Piazza Santa Maria and close to everything. The place is extremely pleasant, clean and as I said the staff is so helpful and professional. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    4/5 Good

    The hotel was beautiful and the staff was wonderful. The layout of the halls and getting around was a bit confusing even after being there three days but I would not hesitate to return if ever in Florence again.

    Beautiful old property. Rooms are well updated. Noise from the piazza may be an issue to some depending on rooms.
