Staff are brilliant and really helpful. Sorted out a restaurant and an opera night in advance.
Only a minor criticism but the hot breakfast food goes cold quickly

Position of hotel.
Continuous very bad smell in the lobby and the hotel corridors (canalization problem?). Cleaning stuff very noisy and rude. Breakfast choices poor for these room prices. In my question if we could upgrade the room (I didn't even ask for a free update!) I got a cold answer "you get what you paid for", after which I lost any appetite for further discussions.

Amazing Hotel just in the heart of Florence. Extremely well decorated, a perfect mix of old and modern! every details are amazing. Everyone is super friendly and helpful at anytime and for any requests I was really lucky to get an upgrade into a much bigger room than expected. (thanks a lot again) The view of Santa Maria novella and the Duomo were stunning I slept like a baby ans got up with the sound of church bells ringing The breakfast I had was one of the best in a very long time I will come back 100 %
Really hard to connect my macbook to the wifi but did not stay long enough to figure out. I guess a day without connection is good for anybody.

The location is great - walking distance to the Duomo and Uffici, and 2min away from the tram to the airport. The staff were happy and friendly and they really went the extra mile for us. The lounges and bar area are beautifully decorated.
The room temperature kept defaulting to a toasty 22oC and we had to lower it all the time.
