    We stayed at this hotel for two nights. There are four of us in our traveling party - so a quad room was required. In the last two hotels we have stayed at, the family rooms have been right next to the lift - thankfully, this wasn't an issue and there was no loud noises coming from the lift, or the people using it.

    We had to sleep with the windows and shutters closed both nights because the traffic is very very loud. Mostly cars and trucks, occasional people singing and ambulances going about their business. On the first night, this was a problem, because the AC stopped working at about 1am. The next night, the hotel staff came up to our room to reset the controls and it worked perfectly.

    This hotel is in a great location. Located right near the big bus station in Florence, and about a 5 minute walk from the Duomo and Piazza del Repubblica. Great shopping in this location too. The city hop-on/hop-off buses also leave from very close by (1 minute walk) and there are two McDonald's and a Burger King about 50 metres up the road if you need fast food - or a coffee to go!!!

    There are no tea or coffee making facilities in this room. There was a small bar fridge, but we couldn't work out how to make it operate.

    Breakfast and free WiFi are included in the price. But you should also be aware that when you check out, each guest needs to pay a city tax - 7 euros per person (I think this is regardless of the time you stay in the city - but I am just guessing on that. WE paid 28 euros for 4 people, for two nights).

    This hotel is an older place. There are lifts, but there are about 10 stairs to get to the front door, so probably not a good option if you are wheelchair bound. The beds were comfortable - the pillows as hard as rocks. The shower flooded the bathroom on a couple of occasions, until we surrounded the shower area with towels. The staff were friendly.

    But I think the big selling point here is the location. So close to everything that makes Florence unique.

    Very near the train station, this hotel was ideal for our arrival at the Florence airport and quick night in Firenze. We were a 10 minute walk to the center of town, but we had selected a room with a balcony and view of the Duomo which was perfect. All in all, I'd stay here again, especially if my trip involved a trip to the train station.

    Still in Florence. Still loving this city. Still staying at the Hotel Palazzo Vecchio. The AC stopped working overnight, and the bathroom floods when you have a shower. Still enjoying the shutters on the windows though. We have been deciding our plan of action for today - do we do the Botticelli or the Michelangelo, the …

    An early breakfast - well its open from 8 to 10. Early as far as Monterosso goes. But since the boat ride we want to do today doesn't go till 9.45, we have a bit of time up our sleeves. The weather is clear today, blue skies and the sun is shining - perfect day to bob about on the ocean!

    ... woohooooo. We were to meet our guide at 9.45am so we arrived a little early into the town centre, meandered through the laneways and came out at the Piazza Vecchio, this is where the Statue of David lives, actually there are many statues, wow what a piazza and what a surprise. They really know how to build piazza's in Italy. Had a bit of time to kill so we had a good look around.

    Time to cook, there were 6 Americans, Fred and Liz from Texas, Val and Joe from Chicago and ...

    ... with its size and colour. My travel guide didn't prepare me for the beauty of the pastel green and pink marble. The line was very lengthy so we gave up the idea of entry and instead stopped for a meal with the Duomo as our view. Pasta again with a surcharge added to the bill. We didn't pass on by the Lindt chocolate shop nearby; this being heaven for Bridget. We followed this with browsing in a bookstore. The attraction of free wi fi and the dislike ...

    ... was very informative and now we just need to figure out what classes we wanted to stay in. Since we are allowed only one drop/switch I am stressed about what I want to do.

    This city is incredibly beautiful, and very old. It’s hard to wrap my head around the idea that people were living in this city hundreds of years ago, looking at the same churches and statues. There is such a depth to the history here that America doesn’t even come close ...
