My wife and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Villa Medici last weekend to celebrate our Anniversary. The hotel is beautiful, conveniently located, and offers complimentary shuttle service throughout Florence. What really stands out, though, is the hotel staff. From communications prior to our arrival, to a seamless front-desk experience and impressively helpful concierge, the Villa Medici staff stands out... More

We've stayed here a number of times and always leave with a good impression. The hotel is a little bit away from the center-- but that's great because you find yourself in a "real" neighborhood rather than the confusion of hordes of tourists. Rooms are a little "old-fashioned" but that's fun because it reminds you what long-standing 5 star hotels... More

We really loved this hotel! It was an amazing stay! The rooms are clean, stuff super friendly and helpful. We were really happy to be there! It's true that this hotel looks like needs a renovation for being in the ranking of 5- stars hotels but in my opinion it's really worth to stay there. I'm sure, I would choose... More

The Sina chain is simular for luxury and services. So is the hotel well located, warm decorated, great performance when it comes to client support. We are business- and private well experienced travellors and staff behaviour is seldom seen in your world of world leading hotels ! A must for tourists and businesspeople as well.

Great service (seems to be a trend in Italy). Hotel shuttle in p.m. that is convenient if you are tired after walking all day. We were greeted with a nice bottle of wine and delicious biscotti in our room that helped us settle in.

Rooms were fine. Staff was attentive. One caveat. The food- 3 breakfasts and 1 dinner left something to be desired. We were part of a Peril tour and those meals were included but do your self a favor and eat out somewhere. Bar staff and wait staff were very friendly.
