    This charming hotel is a converted 19th century villa. Each room is different, and some are expansive and ornate. It's location is both a plus and a minus. You get a garden, free parking (!) and a quiet atmosphere, but, it's a bit of a walk via the Porto Romano to the center of old Florence. It's a very special place, for those who don't mind the walk. If you're enterprising, you can take the bus there.

    Although my very first impression of the place was less than stellar, everything very quickly became delightful. The uniqueness of the place really unfolds the more time you spend there. I enjoyed basking in the sun in the glassed-in terrace right off the garden, taking advantage of the free wifi. The garden is really lovely. There are lots of tables out there and space to wander, which is a welcome retreat from the bustle of Florence. The painting behind the bar is adorable -- a view of a traditional garden (what one might have seen had there been a window there when the building was first built). Buffet breakfast was nice and hefty. The room was standard. Nothing to write home about but no problem either.

    I love being here! While the reception wasn't exceptionally helpful, the feeling of the whole place is just absolutely charming. There's a BEAUTIFUL garden in the back, and the sunny terrace just feels like a little paradise. When you need a break from the hustle and bustle of sightseeing, I recommend taking a book to one of the many comfortable couches or seats in the communal areas (seems like there's a plush seat in every nook and cranny!) where I could easily imagine spending a long afternoon. The rooms are a bit old-fashioned (although the room I was in also had a view of the beautiful garden) but really what I think makes this place spectacular is the location (near the Boboli gardens), the general lushness of life that surrounded the place, and the comfortable "homey" atmosphere.

    The Classic Hotel is a 19th-century Villa which has been completely restored and is surrounded with luscious gardens and old trees. All the rooms, double, single, and the suites have a private bathroom, a direct telephone, TV, safe, phone, air conditioning and period decor. The historic center of Florence (Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, the Uffizi) can easily be reached on foot from the Villa which is located near Porta Romana and the Boboli Gardens and not far from the famous Piazzale Michelangelo.

    Continental breakfast is served in a pretty, vaulted breakfast room, in the garden, in the bar or in the bedrooms. Free parking space for cars is reserved in the grounds of the Classic.
