                  Front Desk Manager, Albert was extremely friendly and helpful. He always went out of his way to help us and others who were waiting (or calling) at the front desk. We would return to this hotel because of him. Also, the breakfast was good.

                  That the roof terrace did not face the Arno River.

                  Staff were excellent - helpful, and charming. Location was superb, right next to the Uffizi gallery, and on the banks of the river. I liked the charm of the foyer area and the no-nonsense but well appointed facilites. I would definitely use the hotel again.

                  A little more attention to lighting in the room (bulb not replaced, for example), plus non-slip shower flooring would reassure.

                  The hotel was beautifully designed, in a perfect location, clean, and the best value for our budget we have found in all of Europe so far.

                  poor choice of breakfast with several items I would expect to be standard were extra! For travellers breakfast is important. Also there was no free wifi asthere is in my present,much cheaper hotel in Rome.

                  Coffee Espresso during the breakfast is excellent ! Perfect location. The reception's staff is very helpful.

                  Breakfast is a little poor. One of the hotel's staff during the breakfast was very rough ( the old one ). The price for parking - The offer written price was 25 euros for 24 hours, but when we arrived the price that staff announced for one of the two cars was 35 euros ( The cars are the same size - Honda Accord 2008 and Audi Q5 )
