We stayed here for an evening and were immediately awestruck at the immaculate presentation and professionalism of the staff and building. The views from the terrace were breathtaking and, for those that complain about it being a wedding venue, there was a wedding on while we were there. We were still allowed access to the terrace, the wedding guests were... More

This hotel is wonderful.The view is simply amazing, looking out over the roof tops of Florence with an absurdly beautiful view of the Duomo. Whether lying by the (lovely) pool, sitting having a drink, or having a magnificent evening meal as the sun sets, the view is there. Outside of the view, the hotel is beautifully situated, in its own... More

We were there and a wedding part was going on. The music was on from reception all the way to dinner which ends late night.

We felt like wedding crashers at this hotel. The party was in full swing on the grand terrace when we arrived on a Friday evening. The only problem was that we were not invited guests, and, therefore not welcome on the terrace with the spectacular views. The other problem was that loud dance music thumped away while we tried in... More

Staying in Piazzale Michelangelo

Neighborhood Profile
Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
