The Hotel

The city is a very popular destination and in some periods the accommodation prices are really high! You can take a look at the map below to get an idea!


The Hotel’s excellent location in the Bellariva district, is ideal for discovering Florence. A nice walk along the banks of the Arno will take you to the historic town centre in 20 minutes or the no. 14 bus (the bus stop is next to the hotel) will take you to the Cathedral in 25 minutes, while you can get to the Santa Maria Novella railway station in 30 minutes.

In my opinion this hotel is perfect for visiting the city. It is not in the old town and on foot it is not very close but the structure is really very nice, the rooms clean and spacious with a really useful balcony. The SpA is really unexpected and the breakfast is rich and excellent! Plus the value for money!

Where to have a drink?

 La Manégère ia an amazing cocktail bar and restaurant. The location is amazing and the cocktail very good. The atmosphere is really cozy! 

Already known as one of the best known and most prestigious clubs in Florence, La Ménagère reopens in November 2021, guided by the entrepreneurial vision of the Manfredi family. A new idea of ​​immersive and contemporary conviviality, enhanced by the restyling curated by Claudio Nardi Architects, is to create a multiplicity of interconnected places: La Ménagère is a prestigious restaurant, an informal bistro, a flower boutique, an emporium of design objects, a widespread library, an underground gentlemen's club where you can enjoy world-class cocktails. All this, and much more.
