We had room 531. It was a nice room with a window to the front of the building. We picked this hotel for the location (to the right the river to the left the Duomo) and the rooftop bar looked like a great way to spend our evenings. The room was very noisy. Yes, it was at the front of the hotel, but the windows did not seem to help diminish the noise. It was especially noisy from above us - we assume the bar. Big, loud bangs - like someone dropping bowling balls. There was a lot of noise from the door slamming. They did not close - they all slammed. The blow dryer sucked. Did not blow hot air at all. I called the front desk and asked for another. Did you know - in the entire hotel there was not a replacement hairdryer to be found? (I know this may seem small, but if you have as much hair as I do - you tend to rely on some basics working). The rooftop bar - the views are unbelievable and exactly as pictured. They just need a staff that can take basic drink orders. They had 3 people every night working, but they seemed inept. We enjoyed our evenings there - but it could have been so much better. Would I stay there again - probably.

Arrived to a warm welcome from reception staff. Shown to room which was small but well equipped and clean. Had a 'balcony' inside the room which allowed for a view of the Duomo and more, what a surprise! We were placed on the 6th floor, no issue until the Terrace bar closes and then everyone leaving is very noisy! Maybe some signs up asking people to be quiet? Terrace bar was lovely, really nice views but found it very expensive. Breakfast was amazing! What a beautiful selection. Coffee machines were difficult to work but lots of fresh filter coffee available instead. Perfect location, 15 mins walk to train station, 5 mins walk to Duomo, basically everything within walking distance. Would definitely return. (Just maybe not 6th floor again)

Very nice smart hotel with a magnificent roof top bar, quality breakfast with very attentive staff, would achieve 5 star value, but for a couple of important things 1. The room was extremely bland, ( all white), this could have been improved with colourful bed covering and matching cushions, also we did not upgrade for a room with a view, so can’t complain about an inside wall, but the air conditioning units we’re sited right outside, so when we opened the door for some air, there was a constant almighty racket 2. Breakfast was excellent, so we were surprised to see that the restaurant was vertically empty every evening. After 5 days of stomping around Venice, then Florence, we decided to stay in and ordered a Florentine steak. It came with a choice of 2 sides, white beans or roasted vegetables, but we were told they had run out of roasted vegetables. We asked for chipped or roasted potatoes, and were told the kitchen did not have any potatoes, so we asked for a side salad, and were again told that they did not have any salad! Eventually we managed, with great difficulty, to persuade the elderly waiter to have plain pasta It was the best steak we had ever had

This is a good four star hotel in the very epicentre of this historic city. On the plus side is the location which is within spitting distance of all of the major "must see attractions". The staff are super friendly and efficient and the rooftop bar is a must during your stay. The downside are the size of the rooms. I booked a superior double at over £200 per night and it was small with little or no storage space for clothes save a tiny corner wardrobe. Ok the room sizes are quoted on the website at the time of booking but the reality was disappointing. However, we were travelling for a month and had four large suitcases and we had to live out of the cases something I did not expect to do having paid £200 per night. If your are flying in for a long weekend then it would be fine.Would I stay here again? Yes but dependent on my circumstances and the room size

We stayed here for the last couple days of our honeymoon. The views on the rooftop bar are spectacular. Comfortable beds, friendly staff, DELICIOUS breakfast. Most importantly, the location was amazing. Just a couple minutes from Duomo and a few more to the Statue of David. We loved it!

We booked the family suite, which is two regular rooms with an adjoining hallway. Worked well for our family of four, although it would have been lovely to have a sitting area where we could gather. Since we didn't have that, at night we spent two evenings at the rooftop patio. It is a stunning, and a great view of the Duomo. Well worth going to this, even if you aren't staying at the hotel. Great location to get around Florence and easy to walk to many places from the hotel. Breakfast was fine, although not stellar.

The highlight of this property is its location: you're literally a 10-20 minute from every top local tourist attraction. The rooms are not large (we just booked a standard room, other rooms could've been larger) but nicely appointed. The beds are comfortable, but the pillows are way too soft and provide little head support. The rooftop bar, modestly named the "Divine Terrace" (!), is a bit over-hyped. It is smaller than you think but still cozy and does give you a great view of the Duomo at night. The breakfast spread (which was not included in our package) was excellent, with a very good selection. The coffee, which came from an automatic machine, was not all that great by Italian standards. The front desk staff was pleasant but not all that helpful in getting you dinner reservations that you couldn't get on your own. Overall, this is a very decent value for the price point.

We had a great stay at this very centrally located hotel. We were fortunate to have been upgraded to a suite and it was such a treat! Gorgeous room, comfortable king sized bed and big luxurious bathroom. The breakfast was abundant and delicious, too many items to mention and something for everyone.

Incredible hospitality and location. The front desk concierge was so kind and helpful with restaurant suggestions and reservations,a nd the location could not have been more perfect. Right in the heart of Florence, close to the Duomo, but quiet at nighttime. Thank you!

The hotel is very centrally located and quite elegant. We received a free room upgrade and our room and bathroom were spacious, the bed comfortable. Breakfast was great with lots of choices and the staff were friendly and helpful. We chose the hotel for the rooftop bar and were not disappointed with the view, although it was very crowded and noisy on a Saturday night. We would stay here again. Great value.
