This is a beautiful little hotel. 10 min walking from The Duomo. With excelent service. Nice staff even do italian tend to be a little agressive. We always felt welcome with smiles in their faces. Our only low point was that our room was close to a staff elevator. So we wake up at 5:00 am every day. We didn'... More

We had a delightful stay that was only made possible by the exceptional staff at this hotel. The air conditioning in the rooms was great. The breakfast was wonderful. The concierge was very helpful and recommended wonderful restaurants.

This hotel was a fantastic place to stay while in Florence. A short walk to the Duomo and shopping. Gorgeous building, staff was VERY friendly and helpful. Wife and I were in Italy celebrating our 30th anniversary and received a complimentary bottle of champagne from the hotel! Loved having breakfast in the garden. Ate only one dinner at the restaurant... More

Quality boutique hotel close to the old part of Florence. Excellent service and welcoming staff. Within walking distance of all the museums and churches. If the legs get tired there is a good bus service within two hundred yards.

Very quiet hotel overall. We had a room at the back of the hotel and slept very soundly. Rooms are older with high ceilings and comfortable beds. Lack of outlets in the room for computers and very slow internet speed detract from the overall experience of staying here. Highlight was the breakfast buffet. The service and food are both excellent.... More

I spent one night at the Regency in Florence for business. The hotel is housed in a villa which dates back to the 1860s, when Florence was (briefly) capital of Italy. It is located on a lovely green square, in a quiet part of town but literally 10 walking minutes from the hustle and bustle of the Duomo. Great location... More

We stayed for four days at Regency Hotel. I stayed in regency hotel 16 years ago and I continue to enjoy this hotel. It's 10 minutes walking to the Center. Breakfast is very good and the staff are very professional. The rooms are excelent.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Once upon a time when the city of Florence was the Italian Capital, Hotel Regency served as a retreat to high government officials and ministers of the State. Today, the nineteenth century villa located in the heart of Florence is a five star property and a long time member of the prestigious “The Leading Hotels of the World”. The hotel overlooks pristine Piazza D’Azeglio, framed by monasteries, ancient cloisters, famous museums, the Synagogue and, even more impressive, maintains the private villa-like air, ensuring travellers a memorable experience.Affacciato su una delle più belle “piazze salotto” fiorentine, immerso nel verde e nella tranquillità, l’Hotel Regency conserva ancora il fascino vintage della residenza ottocentesca di ministri e alti funzionari, con l’atmosfera di una dimora privata di gran lusso. Collocato nel centro storico cittadino, in una posizione invidiabile, consente di godere della bellezza delle opere d’arte che rendono unica questa città come i palazzi rinascimentali, le chiese, i chiostri ed i musei tra i più prestigiosi al mondo. ... more   less
