The Athenaeum Hotel is a 4-star hotel in the center of Florence. It's lovely with comfortable rooms equipped with everything you need to relax after a long day. Outstanding and friendly staff, along with the best entertainment facilities will make you enjoy an unforgettable stay.
This summer, I stayed here for six nights during my visit to Florence, and I highly recommend it. It is located close to the bus and train station of Santa Maria Novella, and a tram stop. In about 15 - 20 minutes you can get downtown, making it perfect for exploring the city on foot. Part of the hotel has been recently renovated, so it has two zones, so to speak - the old and the new. I requested a room on the modern side, and got it, so keep in mind that this review is only about the new part of the hotel; I don't really know anything about the old. Everything was very clean and in good condition.
The most striking thing about the bathroom was the "hidden" TV, behind a kind of transparent panel. Very original. The breakfast was pretty good, served on the ground floor and offering all the usual selection: fruit, different kinds of pastries, sausages, toast ... there was a coffee machine for hot drinks, or you could order them separately from the waiting staff. There are magazines and books available for you to sit around and read, as well as tourist brochures. The staff were all very nice and friendly, and did their best to communicate with me despite the language barrier.
A great hotel, the best I've ever been to in Italy. The service is really first class, and you don't have to worry about anything. In terms of facilities, it's perfect - everything is very new and clean. The breakfast is a varied continental buffet. If you go by car, they have parking, so you can get right to the door without any problems; when you want to take your car again, you'll need to give 20 minutes notice. The price of the parking is competitive (considering that some public car parks charge € 3 an hour, we went out for about 1 to 1.5 € / h), and the service is great - the car can be a real nuisance in Florence. The hotel is a monument in itself. The restaurant in the Torre della Pagliazza, with rounded walls, is the only one of its kind if Florence, and is said to be the oldest building in the city that retains its original appearance. The foundations are of Roman origin and it's believed they could be part of a spa. You have everything bearby: the cathedral 100m, the Piazza della Signiora and Galleria Uffizi 200-300m, the Ponte Vecchio 600m. Its coordinates are: 43 ° 46'18 .15 "N, 11 ° 15'21 .40" E
The hotels in the city are never cheap, but this one has two advantages: the extraordinary roof terrace with a pool, and the conservatory. The decor is a bit outdated, and some things are crying out for renovation, but from here you can walk anywhere in Florence. The service is warm and friendly, and I recommend this as a good place to rest in this beautiful city.
Vivahotel Pitti Palace Al Ponte Vecchio is located next to the Ponte Vecchio and boasts a panoramic terrace on the top floor, where you can relax while enjoying a meal or a drink with views of the beautiful city of Florence. The building dates all the way back to 1200, and is in one of the most picturesque areas of medieval Florence, 100 metres from the Pitti Palace and the Uffizi Gallery. The hotel has a suite on the seventh floor with stunning views. In total, it has 73 rooms.
All of the rooms in the Ac Hotel Firenze have air-conditioning, bathrobes, a daily newspaper and a desk. It offers 24-hour room service, executive floor, elevator, bar and laundry service. Guests can use the hotel's recreational and entertainment services such as massage, gym, sauna, tennis courts, spa and squash courts.
Being in Florence is a real treat; you can feel overwhelmed by so much beauty on every side. And if you have the chance to stay in exquisite surroundings like the Hotel Santa Maria Novella, then you'll have an even better experience. The hotel is located in the square, opposite the beautiful church. It has a very discreet entrance, marked only by a plate. Inside, you'll find a tasteful room decorated with marble, plants, wood, and some sculptures. There are several rooms, classically decorated but not overdone, and the bathrooms are gorgeous, in red and white marble. Our room had a glorious view, overlooking some of the city's stunning architecture. So much beauty.
We found a promotion on booking, and found this hotel. It is not near downtown or a train station, but is an excellent hotel. It is a flat, spacious with balcony; enough to live there. A friend was looking for an apartment to stay in for a few months because she'll do a course out there, so i'll suggest she check the prices. It's like a guesthouse too. You need to take a taxi, or find out where to take the bus though. I really loved my stay there, but they had no breakfast included in my rate. For lunch, we ordered delivery pizza, they gave us the number to call.
We stayed in this hotel in Florence. Normally I prefer to avoid hotel restaurants, but this was worth it for the quality of the food, friendly staff and above all, the spectacular views of the city from the restaurant (in the attic) and the huge roof terrace covering the entire building. Worth a visit!
