    Fabulous

    Great design of the room! Nice view of the piazza. Located very close to the centre (but then again Florence is not a big city, everything is at close range) and the train station. We'd return to the hotel for a while and go back for wandering in the city. I guess the price was ok.

    Quite narrow bathroom (they could lose the bidet) and we couldn't take a shower without wetting our heads. Also not eough hangers. The breakfast buffet was nothing special (the usual stuff) and there were few tables to sit.
