★ ★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Italy”, ”Tuscany”, horizontal]
A mostly disappointing, unexciting option that’s handsome exterior is let down by its unimaginative featureless communal areas. Pleasing enough location suiting those wanting to escapes the hectic crowds of the centre without being too far away. Secure parking available at a charge. Refurbished 2004.
Large distinctive building with occasional ornate balcony and modern aluminium windows at ground level. There’s a single step up to the covered entrance.
Property type: Hotel
The uninspiring interior lacks any character or charm with plain furnishings and modern teak-clad walls. A modern minimalist open-plan lobby houses a low-level marble reception desk and a few potted plants; simple bright breakfast room and adjoining bar with leather tub chairs has some statuary and artwork trying to break the monotony. A similarly furnished basement level lounge area lacks any natural light and has a internet corner.
Area Type: ¾ mile southwest of Piazza del Duomo, on a fairly busy side street in the upmarket area of Ognissanti, surrounded by mostly residential buildings. There are some shops, bars and restaurants in the vicinity and its only 120 yds to the river. The main tourist shops and sights of the Ponte Vecchio Bridge is a 950 yd riverside walk. The main train station is 400 yds away.
