Montebello Splendid, Florence

Via Garibaldi 14
Florence, Italy
TEL: 39-0552-7471
In an iconic city like Florence, many of the best hotels charge top dollar for a convenient location. But Hotel Montebello Splendid, in Santa Maria Novella, delivers elegant interiors (jewel-toned walls; heavy brocade curtains) and easy access to the Renaissance city’s best sites—and it’s a great value, to boot. Less than a 15-minute walk from the Boboli Gardens, Ponte Vecchio, and the Duomo, the 60-room hotel is furnished with antique mahogany chairs and marble-topped tables; the best rooms are set on two floors, with whirlpool tubs and spacious showers. Spend an afternoon under the gazebo at the hotel’s Il Portico Garden Bar: order a glass of Chianti Classico, and pair it with one of the restaurant’s traditional Tuscan dishes, such as the signature beef carpaccio.

Room to Book:

Spread over two floors, the hotel's only "family room" accommodates up to four guests, with a queen-size bed on the second floor and two twin beds on the lower level.

Insider Tip:

Though the hotel doesn't have a spa on site, the concierge staff will make appointments for guests at the nearby Soul Space Wellness Center, which is well known for facials for men and water therapy treatments.
