Location
Sadly some of the staff members are not welcoming. I paid for a junior suite and if I am putting out that much money a night, I don't want to be made to feel like I don't belong at the hotel. The bartender was so friendly and chatting with the American white couple then his demeanor changed when I walked in. He tells me I can't sit at the bar stool area. Then after asking me what I want to drink twice and I saying, I'm still looking (with a smile), he proceeds to ask, with some attitude, if I am staying at the hotel. I turned and asked the couple if they were asked that question and they said no. Please teach your employees to respect all customers no matter the race, the money we pay is the same. When I asked to speak to the manager, the real manager couldn't be bothered to come out and they sent a guy standing next to the manager. He was nice enough to listen. I am writing this review hoping this will force them to train their staff better. Keep your bias/racism at home.

The hotel was modern, clean and in a perfect location. Close enough to everything and away from the craziness to be quiet. Staff was terrific! Highly recommend!

The property is in an excellent location for exploring all aspects of Florence. Right on the river, you are steps away from the Uffizi or Ponte Vecchio. A short walk up to Boboli Gardens is a great way to spend the day. It was an amazing trip!
I can't think of a thing that I didn't like.
