I couldn't be more proud to have chosen this hotel solely based on my own research and hadn't been to Florence before! The location is superb - walking distance from the main train station (Santa Maria Novella), right on the prestigious shopping street for Tornabuoni (right above Gucci), walking distance to ALL sights. The hotel is extremely clean, rooms are... More

Wow. You totally under sold it ((Will Farrell)) The staff was genuinely sweet, friendly and helpful. The decor, the service, the rooms-- wow. I stayed in many cute b&bs and hotels throughout my tour of Europe and this was my top favorite. If you want to match the romanticism you feel in Florence, this hotel will do the trick. My... More

This was our first time to the refurbished Isabella and fourth time in Florence staying on Tornabouoni. This was the best we have had. We brought 2 other couples for their first visit and loved it. The Isabella is just minutes walking to any of the most interesting points of interest in Florence. The furnishings, feel, owners and employees was... More

A wonderful experience. Adriana, Simona, Reny- all went out of their way to make our stay special. The room, though small, is nicely appointed and comfortable. Breakfast is very good and the location is perfect. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Stayed in this lovely hotel on our honeymoon. It was centrally located and really easy to find. The hotel was well presented and spotlessly clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable to. We would definitely stay again.

We picked this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews as the last leg of our Italy trip. I have to say this was an exceptional experience with "amazing" service in the heart of Florence. Hotel is small, with everything you can ask for from an accommodation, however, what makes it better is the service you receive. We felt welcome and feel... More

By luck, we got upgrade to a very nice and large bedroom. In fact, a beautifull bedroom... with a view on the Picasso museum... the staff is very friendly and Professional at the same time (they arranged for night car garage at a descent rate 26 euros/night). Breakfast is good, the only minus is the batchroom with only a shower... More

My husband stays here for business every year and this trip I came with him. Now I know why he insists on staying here- the hotel is super clean, the rooms are comfortable, and the staff is warm, friendly and super helpful.

Or at least that's what we did with this awesome location! The hotel staff was great and put up with our sporadic dinner plans and reservation changes. Rooms are a bit dark but I think it's just the nature of the town. Good news is - you'll sleep like a log. We had such a fantastic time that we booked... More
