Beware of thin walls & mosquitos.
Great location. Family trattoria next door is excellent. Had some issues with mosquitos (in February!) and over-heating. Front desk is commendable in working that situation. Maybe mosquito net around bed would be handy.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Pros Helpful staff and hotel was walking distance to the main sites like the Duomo. Room was well equipped and concierge was helpful in booking the Uffizi Cons Really thin walls and creaky stairs Everytime my neighbor woke up and walked down the stairs, it would creak noisely. It might help to get it oiled.
