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
