My husband and I took my mum for an Easter trip to Florence. The weather and sights were fantastic and I would recommend everyone to visit this wonderful city.
We booked the Grand Hotel Cavour at the last minute (1am on the day of travel!!!) after extensive research on tripadvisor. Nearly all decent accommodation in Florence is expensive, and we decided that we would rather stay somewhere central and clean and pay a little bit more than we usually would.
When we arrived at the hotel we were not disappointed. The location is ideal (just around the corner of the Duomo). The lobby is very grand and the service impeccable. The rooms are very modern and clean, and all have their own theme.
The only downside to staying at the hotel is the street noise. If you are a light sleeper, this would be a problem. As we did lots of walking we were tired most nights and thus did not find it difficult to sleep. Would I stay here again and recommend the hotel to friends??? Definitely!!! Only maybe take some earplugs.
