Built 1894 in the centre of Florence, this beautiful building exudes elegance that is not excessively opulent but more characterised by functional elegance.

The lobby area's cool and simple elegance.

The bedroom was of classical elegance but equipped with everything needed in the 21st Century....

...including a cellphone with local mobile internet to find one's way around town.

The room service menu is good, with an excellent choice of wines.

The hotel restaurant serves good Italian food in an environment and elegant simplicity.

The breakfast selection is excellent, and the service mostly good.


A splendid, elegant and friendly hotel that is beautiful in design and delivers where it counts.  A very good concierge too.
