“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Regency Hotel in Florence during our honeymoon. It was a wonderful place. The outside courtyard where you can eat breakfast every morning is unbelievably beautiful and peaceful. Our room was the nicest I've stayed in in Europe, with high ceilings, a king sized bed and a complimentary minibar. The front desk staff was very helpful, with useful suggestions on where to eat and how to avoid lines at popular tourist spots. The hotel was in a good location, in a quiet area that was right across from a park. It was nice not being in a busy touristy area, but at the same time it was less than a 10 minute walk to the Accademia and about a 15 minute walk to Santa Croce Church, The Uiffizi, Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo and pretty much anything else you would want to see. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is going to Florence.

This is what I call an elegant, 5 star hotel. Away from the crowds of the center of Firenze, yet at walking distance, this beautiful, small palazzo, in front of a quiet square, holds few rooms. The service was impeccable; as leaders club members we were upgraded for a wonderful, big garden suite. Breakfast had first rate cheeses and prociuttos, breads etc. I would not stay anywhere.

A little out of the way in Florence Italy but certainly within walking distance of the city center, the Regency Hotel is a Gem. Service in all areas is top Notch from the Front Desk Personnel to the Restaurant and Housekeeping. The Rooms are like a museum but with up to date furnishings and very comfortable bedding and sparkling clean. The hotel is comprised of two buildings with a wonderful courtyard in between that is used for dining. If my family and I were to visit Florence again we would certainly stay here again as they make you feel like home. A Jewell in Florence

Our stay at the Regency hotel was fabulus, great small hotel, great staff, location is great because it is walking distance from city center, but at the same time not too busy and loud which is perfect, really nice staff, good ambiance and decor, great room sizes which is usually a problem in major cities in some parts of Europe, we stayed at a beautiful garden suite, and had a fabulous time :) for the price it was really awesome choice, definitely would go back again no doubt !! Loved it as a small boutique hotel :)

We moved to the Regency Hotel after arriving at Hotel Montebello Splendid and finding it to be terrible. We called the Regency the day of our arrival and they offered to accomodate us that night. We were unable to get out of our reservation at Montebello that evening, but we arrived at the Regency the next morning. The hotel staff was waiting to great us with open arms. We enjoyed a maginificent breakfast in the courtyard and found our room spotless and charming. The Regency Hotel turned our experience in Florence around and we are so greatful. Alessandro, Danielle and the rest of the staff were so attentive and kind. We cannot wait to return to this hotel again soon.

The Regency ranks as one of my favorite hotels. It is a little bit of a walk into "town" but oh so worth it to be in this wonderful place. The only problem is that you hate leaving the hotel---you're in Florence, you have to go out but you're at the Regency and never want to leave. What to do, what to do?
