The lobby and first-floor lounge are shiny, colorful feasts for the eyes. In the Sweet Bar lounge, large wide-backed, candy-red velvet chairs sit next to grand lavender sofas. Shimmering oblong metallic disks hang from the ceiling, and a shiny black grand piano sits across from three digital interpretations of a fish tank. Fun, poppy music adds to the playful vibe.
Bed and Bath
The 132 modern guestrooms are more conventional than the common areas, with vertically striped taupe wallpaper, blond wood furnishings and crisp white bedding. Striking black-and-white photos of Florence adorn the walls. Though all rooms are comfortably large, Junior Suites have the added bonus of a lounge area with a big, comfy couch and a Jacuzzi tub. Monochromatic bathrooms are simple but spacious.
Breakfast is served in the chic, Japanese-inspired Tasty Restaurant and Harmony Room, where bamboo rods separate sharp-edged mahogany and cream tables and kimonos adorn the walls. For a lively and reasonably priced happy hour, stop by the hotel’s Sweet Bar lounge. The jovial staff makes a mean Italian spritz.
In the Area
Art aficionados should make a beeline for the world famous Uffizi gallery and then head for Michelangelo’s statue of David at the Accademia gallery. In need of an energy boost? Grab an espresso at an alfresco café on the Piazza del Duomo. For dinner, make reservations at the legendary meat-centric Ristorante Buca Mario. There’s plenty more to do outside Florence, too, including exploring the picturesque hills of Fiesole and wine tasting in Chianti.
How to Get There
We loved this place! All of the staff ware so nice and friendly and we hope to see them again! It was great to be close to good restaurants and shops and the view was so beautiful! I would highly recommend it to those wanting a great place to stay!
The Ambasciatori Hotel was completely modernized from when we first stayed there in 2010. Almost tripled the amount of guests rooms but the service stayed the same; warm and friendly, great value for money. And if you travel by train, it is literally right next to the Santa Maria de Novela train station! So there is no need to take a taxi!
Perfect hotell close to trainstation, to the centrum of Florence. You could find food and vine with god price. The people in the Town was very friendly. The Hotels staff was Young and welcome you warmly and took care of you in a fantastisc way. The breakfast was very nice with cute glass jar with jam.
