Amazing location with a lovely river view, less than 5 minutes distance walk to the Uffizi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio and around 15 mints from all the other attractions. Room, new, clean and comfy with a beautiful two balconies, one of them where in the bathroom :) Breakfast, was really good and the quality was great. loved the eggs, fresh and very soft bread, the croissant was amazing and their coffee is one of the best I had. Staff, very helpful and friendly.

I liked that we were 2minutes walk from the famous Piazza della Signoria and maybe 6min to Ponte Vecchio. Yet we could see the river Arno and there were no huge crowds in front of the hotel only when walking towards the museums did the crowds begin. We would definitely stay here again.

The location, by the river Arno and 5 minutes walking from The Uffici, is really fantastic. The hotel staff, at arrival, for help with the luggage, with an excellent recommendation for dinner, for laundry cleaning within the same day, for care at the hotel bar, during breakfast, for taking care of our car, for making us feel really good, is worth the highest mark. We also had a nice balcony which we really much appreciated, being smokers.
Nothing really comes as a negative impression.

Lovely breakfast room with good selection of (mainly cold ) breakfast foods. Attentive, friendly staff. Great hairdryer in the room, normally they are weaklings but this one dried in minutes. The location in relation to the sights was excellent and it should have been a relatively quiet location but.....
The recycling bins are located across the square including the bottle bank and all we could hear during the night were bottles smashing or being collected by refuse vans early morning. They are all over the city which is great for recycling but sleep evaded us some nights. Ask for a room overlooking the river, not the square if your sleep is sensitive to noise.
