Grand Hotel Mediterraneo

Grand Hotel Mediterraneo, Tuscany Italy

★    ★   ★

A large comfortable establishment which wouldn’t be out of place on a Mediterranean beach resort – although there is no pool. It feels a little removed from the action of the centre but does offer a pleasing array of facilities to compensate. Not for those seeking traditional character and flavour and it proves popular with tour groups.

Exterior

A fairly uninspiring, rather weary looking building with some rooms having a recessed balcony. Steps and a ramp up to the large covered entrance.

Property type: Hotel

Storeys: 6

Interior

The interior is modern and characterless but comfortable. The cavernous open-plan lobby incorporates a functional reception, extensive seating areas and a pleasant bar with a covered terrace overlooking the street. Large impersonal main restaurant and a choice of two further restaurants including an agreeable taverna.

Rooms: 331

Location

Area Type: Just over 1 mile east of Piazza del Duomo, across a very busy main road from the River Arno, with a hectic crossroads to negotiate. Not much in the way of shops and bars in the vicinty and the famous Ponte Vecchio Bridge is a 1 mile riverside walk away. The main train station is 1½ miles. Bus stop 50 yds.
