We traveled with our golden retriever and our cat and stayed in the Imperial apartment. This view from the Imperial suite is how Florence should be admired privately or with those you care about. We were able to sit back in the downstairs and upstairs in our bedroom to soak in the views daily and nightly. Our pets were treated with respect, kindness and enthusiasm from all members of their staff. The staff is attentive and genuine. The pool is an infinity pool and it is very cozy. This B&B hotel surpasses any of the hotels we have stayed in Florence and we shall return. The rooms are modern and comfortable (the bed may be a little firm for some, but we prefer firmer). Use of a car makes exploration easier and please do yourself a favor and get a car. The excursions to neighboring towns is a must especially in summer. I know watching Italians drive is daunting but you will drive like them in a short time, just jump into the chaos! If you are coming by car, the entrance to the hotel is a sharp turn left and right into the garage. From the garage take a few stairs to the pool and eating area or take the elevator. You must continuously hold down the elevator button in order to reach the pool level from the garage. From the pool is another staircase to the reception. You will get a nice workout taking the stairs. There is another normal elevator from the pool but think stairs. For dogs, there are tiered areas behind the hotel and a short street after the garage. Otherwise, there are numerous parks to take your dog(s) that the staff will recommend. Another point of interest, this hotel only serves breakfast. I do hope they change this and provide lunch and dinner in the future. There is a busy road below the Eden Rock Resort and it can be heard from the pool but the rooms are quiet and peaceful. Since the hotel is small it is easier to strike up conversations with your fellow guests and enjoy their company. The staff is also refreshingly open and make you feel as though you are at their home. The kitchen was a good option but a few things had to be requested from the kitchen; however, if you are the designated cook use this to your advantage and go out to dinner, which the staff will provide excellent places to discover. Just use the kitchen for drinks or snacks.
Imperial suite is an apartment with the panoramic views from almost every room.
