Grand Hotel Minerva, Tuscany Italy
★ ★ ★ ★
Superbly styled contemporary venue with a arty theme in its bright, spacious public facilities. Offers a separate restaurant and breakfast room, plus the unusual bonus of a rooftop terrace with pool and bar and views of the city.
The public access restaurant has it’s own terrace right on the piazza outside. Outstanding central location has a feeling of space, which is unusual for Florence on this large main square with easy access on foot to all major sights. One of the oldest hotels in the city.
Popular with families due to the large size of the suite accommodation and a few extra services for children. Mainly American guests with some Italians and a mix of other Europeans.
Overlooking the large attractive square of Santa Maria Novella, with other hotels. Adjacent to the ornate characterful church of the same name. Plenty of shops are on the adjacent main road Handy for the central market area and designer boutiques around Piazza della Repubblica.
450m west of Piazza del Duomo, in a central location. Main train and bus station are 250m away along with a taxi rank.
Rooftop terrace has a casual bar with wicker tables and chairs, a small rectangular swimming pool with a handful of loungers and extensive city views. Small lawned ground floor garden is onsite.
