This hotel is in the centre of Florence - imagine Rodeo drive in Hollywood. We could walk to everywhere with ease. Loved the location. The rooms were standard European sizes with a few a bit bigger. Ask for the rooms in the back which are much quieter as the main pedestrian street below can be very bustling. My husband especially... More

Situated on high fashion lane, Via Tournabuoni, Room Mate Isabella offers comfort and convenience, while maintaining its historic charm. The interior helps you image what it may have been like when Victorian novelist George Eliot stayed there in the late 19th century. In addition to clean rooms and exceptional service, the hotel is a short stroll from the Santa Maria... More
