          Lovely! Room light and clean. Staff really friendly and helpful. Great location - a few minutes walk from the centre but that meant it was a bit quieter, and handy for less touristy restaurants. Really lovely place to stay.

          A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
          company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
          Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
          Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
          staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
          they cannot help but stare at the architectural
          masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
          Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria

How far or easy is it to get to the hotel from this station? 2. How easily can we tour the major attractions in Florence from the hotel?

          There is no lift. But there is a stairlift for disabled people to use to climb the stairs.
