This hotel is about 20 minutes walk from Central Florence in a pleasant area although on quite a busy road. The best thing about it is the service from the staff. They were consistently really friendly, helpful and could not do enough for us. We particularly appreciated the maps showing exactly where to get the buses to and from the main tourist areas - and they also sell the bus tickets. The hotel general areas and rooms are immaculately clean, attractive and spacious. The rooms we had were reasonably well equipped and the beds comfortable. The breakfast offers just about everything you could want, with freshly made coffee available - and the hotel offers excellent value for money. So - just a few things that made this a 4star rather than a 5star rating. Firstly, there are no tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms. Secondly, the electric sockets are not ideal. In our room there were no standard round sockets, so we could not use a standard continental adaptor (luckily we were with friends and could use their room). Finally the more popular items at breakfast tended to run out early - on one occasion we arrived at 9:15 (breakfast finishes at 10), we just got the last eggs and ham and there were no croissants or pastries left. If the hotel could fix these small things it would be perfect!
