I spent one night at the Regency in Florence for business. The hotel is housed in a villa which dates back to the 1860s, when Florence was (briefly) capital of Italy. It is located on a lovely green square, in a quiet part of town but literally 10 walking minutes from the hustle and bustle of the Duomo. Great location to explore the city, and come back to a quiet haven afterwards...The hotel is well-appointed, although the decor is very traditional and could do with some refreshing. The service was prompt and pleasant, and the room was large and with a lovely marble bathroom (with Fragonard toiletries). Breakfast is served in a veranda which overlooks a lovely back garden - the selection was fresh and delicious. Would overall recommend for good, old-fashioned 5-star service in the centre of Florence.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Once upon a time when the city of Florence was the Italian Capital, Hotel Regency served as a retreat to high government officials and ministers of the State. Today, the nineteenth century villa located in the heart of Florence is a five star property and a long time member of the prestigious "The Small Luxury Hotels". The hotel overlooks pristine Piazza D'Azeglio, framed by monasteries, ancient cloisters, famous museums, the Synagogue and, even more impressive, maintains the private villa-like air, ensuring travellers a memorable experience. Affacciato su una delle più belle "piazze salotto" fiorentine, immerso nel verde e nella tranquillità, l'Hotel Regency conserva ancora il fascino vintage della residenza ottocentesca di ministri e alti funzionari, con l'atmosfera di una dimora privata di gran lusso. Collocato nel centro storico cittadino, in una posizione invidiabile, consente di godere della bellezza delle opere d'arte che rendono unica questa città come i palazzi rinascimentali, le chiese, i chiostri ed i musei tra i più prestigiosi al mondo. ... more less
