This is not only a beautiful hotel, it's in a location easily walkable to everything - without being right in the middle of it. More importantly, the staff - especially at the front desk - could not have been more friendly, helpful or accommodating. Splendid!

great escape from the fuzz in the center but still walking distance, best restaurants and shopping along the way, enjoyed quiet evenings, good food and lovely atmosphere. rooms are great and you kind of feel like in 16th century. somebody has put in a seriuos effort into decorating the whole hotel. bar had good selection of vines and whiskies. free...

Sevice at check in was cold, unfriendly and abrasive. Booking was done wrong but when asked what we could do she didin't want to be helpful. Exercise in patience on my part. Below average rooms. Way below. Not much of a lounge for relaxtion. Family of three. They said we didnt book a triple and so only two of us... More

A charming property with wonderful rooms and friendly staff. Franco was particularly helpful. Location is a healthy (30 min) walk from main attractions. No major lines except Acadamie (David) where you should get a reservation. Our room had a large bed and nice bath. The breakfast (20€) was not worth it. Limited selection and not tasty.

This hotel was lovely. We booked a deluxe double and were greeted with a clean and cool room, including a separate area with desk, chairs and TV. Bed was very comfortable, choice of three pillows and bath was spotless. Wireless internet and breakfast were included. The breakfast included breads, meats, cheeses and scrambled and boiled eggs. Fresh squeezed OJ and... More

Perfect location in the beautiful Florence, together with a helpful staff makes this a good choice to stay in the city. We've been delighted with a room upgrade as soon as we arrived. Good restaurant with a nice ambient and a delicious breakfast.

The second leg of my honeymoon was in Florence. We were recommended the Montebello Splendide by friends. The hotel is 10/15 mins walk from the old town in Florence, so is slightly out of the way, but it is set in a quieter part of town, so it really depends on you inclination. The hotel entrance and lobby area are... More

I travel to Florence twice a year for work and booked the Monetebello since my husband was joining me and I thought it would be nicer to stay somewhere more luxurious and less business. The hotel is a very mixed bag, some of the staff are great but others are absolutely not. Some of the hotel rooms are renovated, most... More

My wife and i definitely enjoyed the Montebello Splendid. Checked in early to a spacious and clean room. Lobby was nicely furnishes with plenty of spaces to sit and read including a few tables outside. It's five streets from the santa maria novella train station, which was very convenient. It's certainly not in the center of the most touristy area,... More

Montebello Splendid claims to be a 5-star hotel but actually they are all over the place, the service is poor, the food at the restaurant is pretty average, the last night of our stay the A/C was not working, and to top it up.. they lost our bags, putting in somebody's else car ALL our stuff, obviously that almost ruined...
