Location - the hotel is a short stroll from the main train station (Stazione Santa Maria Novella) and is situated on one corner of a lovely open park area. The main attractions are within easy walking distance - Gallery of the Academy (statue of David) 0.65km, Uffizi Gallery 1.5km and Vecchio Bridge 1.6km. There are several restaurants, bars and mini-markets... More

We had just experienced the horrors of the Serena Hotel in Rome so the bar was very low when we checked into the Malsapina Hotel. Our first impression was of a small rather charming hotel - decorated in the lower reception areas rather like a bed and breakfast with small charming rooms (we later discovered that the bar was actually...

Well..... I had god expectation for this place being a 3 star hotel, but realistically it's just like a hostel for students. We stayed here for 3 nights, worse 3 nights sleep of my life. After 2300 somehow there are lots of door slamming and people coming and going. The double bed is very small and in a funny position... More

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and can honestly say that I slept very well. When I first arrived, I immediately noticed the smell of smoke in the room and then noticed the ash tray. I have an allergy to smoke and also have laryngeal difficulties and so am very susceptible to smoke. I immediately went back down... More

I recently stayed at the Hotel Malaspina for one night on May 31 as part of an organized tour. I had asked for two extra nights before the tour began, but the hotel did not have any availability, so the tour company put me up at the Hotel Donatello next door. The Hotel Malaspina is well run and the staff... More

The location is perfect, no doubt. Unfortunately, the staff obviously couldn't care less about us or questions we posed. It's one thing to catch one person on a bad day, but BOTH receptionists on both days during every encounter were not only rude, but clearly had an agenda. We were told the only restaurant open on Sunday was a $30.00... More

We stayed at Hotel Malaspina for 3 nights and loved it! We arrived early and were able to check in early. We arrived at the main rail station and walked to our hotel. It was about a 10 minute walk but it was perfectly manageable with 1 rolling suitcase each. We found the staff to be courteous and helpful. We... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With the same hospitality accorded Dante at the Castello di Fosdinovo in Lunigiana, the descendants of the Marquis Malaspina have opened their Florence residence on Piazza dell’Indipendenza to offer modern hospitality with that touch and culture that makes Hotel Malaspina a truly charming hotel.The lady of the house, Benedetta Torrigiani Malaspina, has created elegant rooms with period furniture with inviting halls and parlors, where the intimate atmosphere resembling a private home is enhanced by the excellent comforts, superior among those proposed by 3 star hotels in Florence. Starting with the garage just steps from the hotel (a valet takes your car and brings it back when you want it) and reception open 24h.The TV room and lobby are very pleasant, ideal situations for relaxing or socializing over a cup of coffee or glass of Tuscan wine served by the bar reserved for guests and open from 8 in the morning until midnight.Those staying at Hotel Malaspina for business can also use a conference room which can hold up to 20 people.The pretty breakfast room offers a plentiful buffet with sweet and savory foods, typical Florentine sweets, juices and hot beverages. Guests can obtain all the information they need at the reception for visiting the city and our concierge service makes reservations for tickets to the most important museums and sights, music and theater performances, recommends and makes reservations for restaurants, guided tours and tours to the surrounding areas and transfers to and from the airport (plane and train tickets can also be purchased). ... more   less
