Hotel Tornabuoni Beacci, Tuscany Italy
★ ★ ★ ★
An upmarket, charming and characterful choice which offers comfortable accommodation with a relaxed friendly feel; good central location that’s handy for the sights and even handier for the designer shops. The hotel actually only occupies the building from the second floor upwards with the reception on the top floor, but there is an old-fashioned style lift for those that want to avoid stairs.
Well-presented large 16th century terraced building with wooden shutters and carved stone archways on the ground floor; the pavement entrance is flanked by an upmarket designer shop.
Property type: Hotel
Appealing interior oozes old-fashioned charm with original features and ornate antiques. The inviting lounge has large welcoming sofas, chandeliers and paintings around a large stone fireplace. Smart intimate bar with wooden flooring and a fairly plain breakfast room.
Delightful terracotta-tiled roof terrace has elegant wrought iron tables and chairs with plenty of colourful potted plants and enjoyable roof-top views.
Area Type: 500 yds southwest of Piazza del Duomo, on main road among historical buildings and upmarket designer shops, in a central location that’s close to the action. The tourist shops and sights of the Ponte Vecchio Bridge is 400 yds walk away. The main train station is 550 yds away.
