I loved this hotel. It's not even like a real hotel, it's a converted Villa, so you feel almost like you're staying in a stately home of Italian dignitary but with all the privacy and personalization of a hotel. The view off the veranda is breathtaking. The service is perfect. The rooms are nice and contain every amenity. The only bad thing is that you're not in the heart of the city, but since Florence is so busy, that may be the best thing too. They do offer the free shuttle, which we took frequently out. They offer that if you call you can have them come pick you up as well, but neither one of us had an international phone, so we couldn't call and ended up taking taxis or walking. It's quite the jaunt to walk, but if you have comfortable shoes and don't mind hills, it's not that bad. I will recommend this hotel to anyone I know traveling to Florence.
