    Central location, easy walk to everything

    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!
    We check out of the hotel after …

    ... himself was in there doing autographs. And just to add to our woes, the gallery was closed Monday and on Tuesday morning we were leaving so that was that. Oh well.

    By the time we got back on the bikes it had begun to hammer down with rain (of course) so we headed towards a place where we had been told we could get a great view of the city. That would have been all well and good had there not been an encroaching thunderstorm which brought with it swirling gusts ...

    ... said was about the architecture and what period the building is from and that bored us after some time.

    After the tour we decided to get some food with our newfound French friends and after a feed of fruit, we agreed to walk up the hill of Michellangelo. We passed the famous gold bridge of Florence and after a quick stop at a gelato store we climbed the steps up the hill. At the top we were greeted by a 180 degree uninterrupted panoramic view of Florence. We walked to ...

And behind another panel, another door to another secret staircase back into the first studiolo through yet another painting. Oh the secret things that must have happened in this dark narrow passageways. Next we are moving on to see the most famous room in this palazzo, the hall of five hundred so named because this ...
