Good hotel with huge rooms

I was impressed with the Palazzo Ricasoli. It is not luxurious as you may expect from some 4* hotels but it was clean and functional. The location was good, a 10-15 minute walk in a straight line to the Duomo and easy to drive to with easy parking. Breakfast was good with the usual selection of cold breads, fruit, cheese and meat. If you want a quiet escape from the crowds in a good value hotel then you will be satistisfied.
