Jolly Carlton

Jolly Carlton, Tuscany Italy

★   ★   ★    ★

Jolly can only be found in the name as it lacks any Florentine charm – a rather uninspiring modern choice with functional feel and a busy bustling impersonal atmosphere. Proves popular with large tour groups and those on business needing access to road network out of busy centre. Not for those wanting the city centre attractions close at hand, though it is handy for the park.

Exterior

Unexciting modern building with recessed balconies and an external staircase on one corner. Steps up to large main entrance.

Property type: Hotel

Storeys: 7

Interior

The interior has a characterless business-like feel to it with a fairly sparse lobby and a unimaginative seating area overlooking a grand piano. Fairly smart restaurant and adjoining bar is better presented but as with many concrete buildings of this era it suffers numerous concrete support columns, albeit disguised in wood and brass.

Rooms: 152

Location

Area Type: 1¼ ml west of Piazza del Duomo, in mainly residential suburb of city across busy road from the main city park, overlooking public car park with a busy main road emerging from an underpass. There’s a very limited amount of shops and restaurants in vicinity with the popular shops and attractions of Ponte Vecchio a 1¼ mile riverside walk away. Bus stop 150 yds. The train station is ¾ mile.
