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.

My husband and I stayed here in November for four nights on the second leg our two week trip. We were greeted by very friendly staff who went out of their way to give us suggestions and help. They were ever so friendly. We had a lovely penthouse on the fifth floor in the front overlooking the city area. We... More

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. Concierge gave great recommendations and got us advanced tickets to Accedemia Museum where we saw the... More

We stayed at the Grand Hotel with a tour group. The lobby was lovely. Our room was in the front of the building with a view the main street and a small garden area to the left. The room was decorated old style and the bathroom was large with white marble. The only down side was that there was mold... More

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.

Great hotel with beautiful gardens & a great location a little away from the fray of the city. Walking distance to everything & a staff who were so friendly & helpful. This is a great place to feel pampered & get a good feel of Florence.

Earlier this month, I stayed at this property with a group of 14 people. I enjoyed seeing the differences in each room. Many of our group rooms had tapestry on the walls to feel the charm of an old Italian villa. I am a sucker for modern architecture, so I was pleased with my room (320). It had dark wood... More
