nice hotel with great service, excellent for business trip but far from main attractions, so you need to have a car or love to walk a lot, anyway I had a nice 10k morning run to main places like Ponte Veccio or the cathedral
"Garden Inn much better"
The hotel itself is nice but too far away from everything. Although it has a nice spa (better than the Garden Inn Hilton), at night there are no typical restaurants around and the lay-out of the bar is plain bad: once seated you can't see the staff, hidden by large pillars and the feeling is not as nice as the one at the Garden Inn. Same for the restaurant: too big and quite impersonal. The staff is very good though, professional and reactive. Rooms are OK and beds also comfortable.
This hotel is nice but not close to the action in Florence. There is a free shuttle bus but I suggest it isn't frequent enough. The shuttle bus schedule is attached here. The hotel was clean and staff were friendly. Our bed was very comfortable. The room was of Hilton standard. If only they would include a shower curtain! The executive lounge is adequate but no where near that offered at the Hilton Rome airport. If the price is right then this property is worth a stay. If it's too expensive try a closer option.
Front desk very courteous and helpful! Room was standard to other European hotel rooms. Bathroom though was bigger than a typical European bathroom. Food was ok, breakfast buffet was not on my top list of breakfast buffets of the 3 hotels we stayed at in Italy. It is the tallest hotel in Florence but do know that it's not in the center of Florence and will require either the hotel shuttle or a taxi which runs around 18-20 euros.
"Birthday weekend "
We received a warm and friendly welcome on check in and as we are Diamond members were upgraded to a lovely suite on the 15th floor and a bottle of bubbly was a really nice touch. Room spotless and very comfortable with a huge bath! Executive lounge had great views and good choice of food and drinks. Breakfast was great. Lots of choice. Went in spa pool which was lovely but it would have been better if the water was warmer. We didn't stay in very long as felt chilly. The hotel recommended a lovely restaurant within walking distance - Il Baca - warm friendly family run with great food cooked fresh on an open fire. Highly recommended. Not posh, just rustic Italian. Hotel runs an efficient shuttle bus service to the centre of Florence which is only 10-15mins depending on time of day. You are dropped within walking distance of all the beautiful sights Florence has to offer. To sum up - a great base to explore the City. Our room was lovely and spacious and the air con was efficient. Great friendly staff. Good breakfast and executive lounge was perfect for a drink and snack after a day's sight seeing. Would highly recommend and will definitely return.
