    The concierge service was brilliant. The restaurant was good. The room was comfortable and the view was very good.

    The television was inadequate for a hotel of this cost. The chambermaid service was very poor - slow and lazy.

    The room overlooking the Arno, the service, the bar

    The bathroom tap dripped, the lavatory was difficult to flush, the upsatairs bar and restaurant were closed and there was not a swimming pool. Breakfast was poor - lukewarm cofffe. Does not compare with the Royal Orcard in the same group

    The staff was outstanding! The concierge made many great suggestions on gelato places, dining places, and sights to see. The room was comfortable and had a great view of the Arno river.

    Fabulous

    Hotel is centrally located along the Arno river, near high end shops. Suggest they add outdoor eating on their piazza. Would make for a very pleasant dining experience

    Hotel had mosquitos in the room from balcony door being opened by previous guests. Breakfast is very expensive, even simple items.

    The A/C was off and the room was too warmWhen openning the windows a lot of mosquitos came in. It was a very bad experience with so many mosquito bites.

    Fabulous

    Its quiet and clean for such a big hotel.

    The breakfast was very expensive. When you only want some fruit salad, yoghurt, orange juice and coffee then forty euros is a waste of money.

    Good

    An ok hotel, not what you are expecting from a Westin hotel... the only thing that really mentions a Westin is the price ...

    Even that you are paying a nice amount of $$, anything you are asking for beside of your bad will be an extra, with an outrages price... parking is 40 Euro per night, a double espresso 10...
