Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

Great location on a very nice and popular street in Florence (one of my favourites), 5 minutes from Piazza della Signoria. The staff was kind, polite and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable, nicely decorated, avec un peu de charme. I also appreciated the breakfast

Room Mate Isabella is right in the center of the historic district. It's a 5 minute walk to the Arno on a well lit, safe street; and, no more than 15 minutes max to most attractions. The rooms (and bathrooms) are big by European standards. The breakfast is great. The rooms were

Isabella is on "the" shopping street of Florence...think ultra expensive, but the rooms vary in size and the bathrooms are not well appointed. The tub/shower, with no bath mat or hand grips, is an accident waiting to happen. To enter the hotel you must climb a very steep long

This hotel exceeded our expectations. The rooms are beautiful, very clean and very luxurious. I've paid a lot more in other hotels and received a lot less. The staff was very helpful and went above and beyond. We arrived very tired and hungry on a Saturday evening when most

Hi Joseph. There is no parking in the hotel, but an agreement with a nearby garage that collects and delivers the cars from/to the hotel, for an extra cost of average 26-30€/24hrs. The hotel is in a restricted area, and all cars need to register the access recorded by cameras for ZTL. No possibility to park in the streets without permission.

Dear Sara, thank you very much for your interest and question. We regret to inform you that in Isabella there are two flight of stairs to get to the lift (about 25 steps). The hotel is in a XVII century building and there is no space to set a lift from the ground floor, unfortunately. Thank you for your kind comprehension. At your disposal, Luca Albonetti
