I'd done quite a bit a research before myself and my husband had a four night break in Florence and I'm so glad I did. I can't express just how good this hotel was. It is as central as you can be in a city break, but looks over a lovely square with some really nice restaurants on. I asked for a quiet room, so we didn't have much of a view being at the side of the hotel but walking back each night, the square was never overly noisy. The hotel itself was modern inside, but tastefully furnished and decorated. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and breakfast was plentiful, tasty and there was never a wait for a table. We don't tend to return to places - there's a big world out there after all but I've already recommended this hotel to family members who are thinking of visiting. It bypassed my very high standards. Lovely.
