My personal Tripadvisor - Hotels in Florence

Tripadvisor is the most utilized way to check out Hotels and Restaurants; at least to have an idea of the type of place, where is located and see some photos. I do it myself too, and I also write feedbacks. But somehow you also have to be careful with Tripadvisor, cause not always it reflects the reality, especially when it comes to “where you are listed as position”.

So, since you often ask my opinion on where you should sleep and eat, here’s my personal list. Today we talk about Hotels, next post about Restaurants.

My favourite Hotels in Florence
For Hotels, I have to say , Tripadvisor’s list is not too bad, but these are my choices:

Luxury 5 Stars

Jk Place – in the beautiful Santa Maria Novella square, a boutique Hotel with a superb design, classy and modern at the same time
Portrait Firenze – the new born of the Ferragamo chain (Lungarno Collection)- unbeatable location (right in front of Ponte Vecchio) top service very personalized and friendly for this boutique Hotel

St. Regis – classic, faboulous, just been refurbished – a bit more out of the tourist path, in Piazza Ognissanti, which is a 15 minutes walking from Ponte Vecchio and Cathedral Square
Villa Cora – on the hills of Florence, if you want to escape from the chaos and breath the Tuscan hills air, a beautiful Villa just restored

4 Stars

Plenty of choice here...classic Renaissance Style, modern, cozy, big... look what’s better for you in term of location, style and of course the car – Florence is a nightmare for driving, in case you need to park your car chose a place that can take care of your car, or get out of the city centre and then move around by bus or taxi

Hotel Lungarno – almost a five stars I have to say, in terms of service and price, but if you can get (and afford) a room overlooking the river it will be your dream becoming true- also part of the Ferragamo chain (Lungarno Collection), classy and beautiful
Antica Torre Tornabuoni – very nice, and excellent location, on Via Tornabuoni, the shopping street

Hotel Santa Maria NovellaHotel OrologioGrand Hotel Minerva – the 3 are located in one of my favourite square, Santa Maria Novella, central, close to the train station and magnificent; each one is different, all are recommendable, the Minerva has a pool on top of the roof.
All 3 are easy accesible by car.

Hotel Continentale and Gallery Hotel Art – best location, next to Ponte Vecchio, both owned by Lungarno Collection/Ferragamo – super hip and stylish, with the best roof terrace bar (at Continentale) and the most incredible sushi and cocktails at Fusion (Gallery).
Hotel Albani – close to the train station, but in a quiet Street, near the San Lorenzo Market and Santa Maria Novella.

Hotel Degli Orafi – between the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio, where the “a Room with a view” was shot… super central, maybe not too easy by car.

3 Stars

This is the minimum of stars you want to get – there are so many options, but the best recommended also by my Clients are:

Hotel Guelfo Bianco, in Via Cavour, charming  Renaissance style, 2 minutes from Accademia

Hotel David , in Viale Michelangelo, excellent if you get by car, in a very elegant residential area of Florence, just outside of the city center 

Hotel Davanzati, in Via Porta Rossa, next to one of my favourite museum, the Davanzati House

Palazzo Guadagni, in Piazza Santo Spirito, a lively and authentic square on the other side of the river, magnificent historical building

Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo, in Via dei Servi, in the shades of the main Dome

Residence Hilda , also in via dei Servi, elegant apartments

Hotel Annalena, in Via Romana, the other side of the river, perfect to visit Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace
Hotel Macchiavelli, in Via Nazionale, between the SMN Station and San Lorenzo area
Hotel Guelfo Bianco
 
Palazzo Guadagni
 

Then, what about B&B?  Oh men, too many!

I hope this post can help you :)  and once you have reserved.... book a tour with Elaiza!
