your 4-star hotels:
Hotel Bernini Palace
This 15th-century palazzo—a longtime gathering place of politicians and protagonists of the Risorgimento—was once the home to the renowned Pera family. Here, elegant Italian style prevails in guestrooms—think Murano glass chandeliers and draped canopy beds—while the lobby’s décor hints at a Moroccan influence. The historic restaurant and the lobby bar tempt guests to linger, but the irresistible lure of Florence shimmers right outside the hotel’s doors. Buffet breakfast daily.
Grand Hotel Minerva
Even if you were stubbornly to disregard Grand Hotel Minerva’s proximity to the heart of Florence on the bustling piazza of Santa Maria Novella, or its history as an elegant mainstay, you would surely not be able to resist the glorious city views from its rooftop bar—or from the rooftop pool. It offers generously sized guest rooms with options for families and groups. Breakfast included.
Hotel de la Ville
Conveniently located on Via Tornabuoni, Florence’s most popular shopping street, the classical Hotel de la Ville is also a quick walk to the still-vibrant center of the Florentine Renaissance—the Duomo, Uffizi Gallery, and Palazzo Antinori, home of the Tuscan winemaking dynasty. Public spaces and guestrooms here feature Florentine décor and marble detailing. Rate includes an American-style breakfast buffet and nightly aperitivos in the lobby lounge.
C-Hotels - The Style, Florence
Maybe you’d prefer to leave Florentine history outside your hotel room. The Style, an all-suite design hotel, is clean, modern and bright with nary an antique in sight. The location is ideal—close by the train station and Santa Maria Novella—but except for its up-close views of the famous skyline, the quiet, stylish hotel feels removed from the fray. Some suites offer kitchenettes, and many are suitable for families. Breakfast included.
Hotel Plaza Lucchesi
If the lovely views across the Arno river to the Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato al Monte from many of Plaza Hotel Lucchesi’s balconies don’t win you over, surely the 360-degree view of Firenze from its rooftop bar will. This 19th-century palazzo, renovated to modern standards, also holds the charm of location: the surrounding neighborhoods, Santa Croce and Sant’Abrogio, are favorite shopping and dining destinations for locals.
San Gallo Palace
Built on the site of a medieval monastery, San Gallo Palace Hotel opened in 2003, artfully blending modern amenities with classical style. In a quiet neighborhood removed from the bustle of Florence’s historical center, the hotel is able to offer more space to guests: simple spacious guestrooms and a lovely garden terrace. A shuttle to the central train station and the airport is available, but guests often choose the easy, 15-minute walk into town.
Room Mate Luca
The facade of this 1865 palazzo may murmur ‘neoclassical,’ but ‘funky’ best describes the mood inside. Bright rooms featuring plenty of color, stripes, and patterns lend energy to this design hotel off the buzzing streets of Florence’s San Lorenzo neighborhood. While just a stone’s throw from the sites of the city’s historic center, the area’s restaurants and markets are the big draw at Room Mate Luca. Late breakfast runs until 12 p.m.
Park Palace Hotel
There is a definite brand of guest who will be drawn to this charming villa—one who appreciates green space and eclectic touches to the classic Italian style. At Park Palace Hotel, a 20-minute walk or 10-minute drive from Florence’s center, you’ll find grand public spaces hung with dog portraits, a reading room and bar, a quiet terrace, shady trees, and a swimming pool. The 26 rooms include spacious options for families, as well as rooms with balconies or private terraces.
