I was given a better room with an amazing view due to my room not being ready when i checked in. The breakfast each morning was exceptional and one of my favorite parts of the trip.

Hotel is close to Duomo and restaurants

Pros: The location was good
Cons: Some of the employees at the front desk need to be friendlier and more accommodating.
Location: The Duomo is right there. One of the leather markets is close. Great cafes. Roof top bar is nice
The hotel room was very clean. The bed has a thin foam very firm mattress, so it not the most comfortable bed. My room was facing the street so it was very noisy all night. There is a restaurant/bar directly across the street, so the noise is constant. You cannot have a cup of tea, soft drink or glass of wine in the hotel bar most of the time. You are told to go up to the roof deck (which actually doesn't open until 5:30) and it's November. The staff at the front desk is not very accommodating. I was told when I called the front desk that I could temporarily charge my phone because I needed to get an adapter. When I came down, a woman named Angela very rudely told me that there was no way for me to charge my phone. A young woman came from the back room of the front desk very graciously allowed me to use hers. Angela was never friendly and hard,y ever even made eye contact when I entered or exited the hotel. I needed 3 items dry cleaned and was told that if they were outside my room no later than 10 I could get it back the same day. The following morning I called the front desk at 8:15 AM and informed them that my cleaning was ourtside my door, at 8:35 it was picked up. Later that evening when I inquired about my cleaning, the man at the front desk said I didn't get down by 10 so it didn't get sent out. I argued that I had left it at 8:15 and I needed it bcz I was leaving the next day. They did send it out and got it to me 10 minutes prior to leaving for the airport.

Comment from Hotel Management

19 Nov. 2017 by Carlo

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your opinion and we are grateful for your comments, although some of them are not positive. I am going to verify with the front desk staff about your disappointment. I must confess our Reception and Concierge staff receives always fantastic reviews and compliments, as you can see on this website or even on Tripadvisor, but I understand that something worked wrongly. In regards of the laundry service, as you did imagine, our outside company had technical troubles on that date and we have been obliged to send your item in the late afternoon to another laundry service, who did fastly, but not untill the next morning. Naturally the only thing we could do was to have the service complimentary for you. I do really hope to have the possibility to welcome you again in Florence. Kindest regards. Carlo Front Office Manager

Great location, bad room view

This hotel is in the perfect location, right in the center of a lot of things!! Rooftop bar is gorgeous, the only thing I would say is crappy is some of the rooms have a terrible view. Pipes and unfinished courtyards. Breakfast isn't very good either. But hotel was nice
