This is a boutique luxury hotel located at the western end of Florence. The public area is nice, particularly the garden. The room is richly decorated. My only complaint is the location: it is near the train station, but about half a mile too far west to reach the downtown easily.

We have just experienced our first visit to Italy and chose Florence. What a beautiful place steeped in art and culture. We stayed at this lovely hotel. The walk to the centre is approx 15 minutes but a pleasant one at that. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite large and towels were changed every... More

Lovely hotel, within walking distance of all of the major attractions in Florence, but far enough out of the centre to get a quiet night's sleep. Very helpful and friendly staff, and the room in which we stayed was lovely; very spacious and immaculate. If we return to Florence, which I'm sure we will, then this hotel would likely be... More

Very nice hotel that is conveniently located closed to the river, and yet in a quiet area. I recommend it for couples as it is very cosy and refined. You can walk to anywhere in Florence. Parking is provided but a bit pricey.

While there is no denying that there are more expensive and more centrally located hotels in Florence, the Splendid is just a short walk to the center of Florence. It's a very short distance from the riverbank and is located in a safe and easily accessible neighborhood. I've been to Florence many times and the Montebello Splendid is consistent in... More

Our stay at Montebello Splendid was wonderful. This hotel truly deserves to be rated as a 5 star. The service, room, food and hotel were all excellent. The restaurant for both breakfast and dinner were exquisite. A word of caution if you are travelling to any hotel in Florence by car....use GPS to avoid going through the ZLT zones. I... More

Our stay at this really beautiful hotel was mostly perfect. The bath towels were supremely luxurious, the interior finishes in the lobby and corridors were stunning, the bed and linens were so comfortable and inviting and the room was really beautiful. The only drawback was the front desk team. They were cold, off-putting, and until we pushed it with them,... More
