A charming {3 star} hotel with a wonderful location.

Relais Uffizi is really charming. Its entrance is on a narrow walking street but the sitting room/breakfast room has a panoramic view over the Piazza Signorelli. Our room was huge and very lovely and clean. The bathroom was modern with all amenities and also very clean. The room had air conditioning and a mini bar refrigerator and was beautifully decorated. The staff at this hotel were helpful and pleasant.

I recommend requesting a room that doesn't open on to the stairwell; the noise of people entering and leaving can be disturbing ... although we were so exhausted from traveling to Italy that it wasn't a problem for us.

The price of our room which was a standard double was 180/night. When you walk out of the hotel it's a short walk to most of the central historical sights of Florence. We would return to the Relais Uffizi despite the fact that it's a little higher rate than we're used to paying for a hotel because it really makes you feel a part of Florence.
