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...

We spent 4 nights at this hotel with lovely time, I am going to be back there again. Not far from city and train station, all is walking distance. Good local restaurant is not far and front desk is very helpful to give you a recommendation.

We spent three nights at this lovely hotel, a short walk away along the Arno to the heart of the city. Quiet. Well maintained. Excellent food and service. My luggage was lost in transit and the helpful staff followed up with the airline. Bag found!

This is a very clean hotel with helpful front desk. A little off the beaten path, but a nice getaway from the city. The breakfast was nice and a pleasant outdoor courtyard area. Happy hour was nice, however, the drinks and food are very pricey.

This is a really nice hotel, a hidden gem not far from the Arno river and about 15 mins from centre of Florence. The staff are courteous and helpful. When we returned to Florence for a second visit we stayed here again., I really love the courtyard with the fairytale lighting and the fountain, It's a peaceful place to sit... More

Was a great experience. The rooms were really beautiful and I'd say not a bad location. It's really just a great place to stay. My only qualm and why I didn't give them 5 stars is that their wifi requires you to sign on with their social media. It was sort of annoying. They ask you to connect your facebook... More

In a quiet area just outside the hustle a 15 minute riverside walk from the Ponte Vecchio and 10 minutes walk from the station. Very secure. We had a lovely room, a little on the small side but enough for our 3 night stay. Bathroom was lovely and the hotel has a lovely garden terrace, Furnishings in the hotel were... More
