Birthplace of the Renaissance and home to countless masterpieces of art and architecture, Florence deserves to be on everyone’s must-visit list. Home to Michelangelo, Da Vinci, the Medicis and so many other brilliant minds, this city was, and always will be, a symbol of humanity’s beauty and wisdom. Stroll through the piazzas, gaze up at the Duomo, sip on Tuscan wine, and lose yourself in the magic of this truly unforgettable destination.
It is truly right at your fingertips from Grand Hotel Adriatico. Set right in the heart of it all, this comfortable hideaway is near iconic Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo and the Santa Maria Novella, with many of Florence’s other renowned sights just a short walk away. And when you retire at day’s end, you can get a taste of Italian culture right here – literally. Espressos, cappuccinos and cocktails are served at Vespucci – named for the famous explorer – and regional specialties at elegant Opera restaurant.
Rooms are classically styled, with a warm color scheme, wooden floors and decadent drapes. The marble-tiled bathrooms are spacious, with a shower and bathtub to soak in after a long day of exploring.
Kick-start a day of sightseeing with breakfast on the veranda, where you’ll enjoy a spread of homemade pastries, cereals, fruits and more. During summer, it can be taken outside, in the hotel’s garden. You can savor local and Tuscan cuisine at the elegant Opera restaurant and the Vela restaurant, as well; the restaurants are open from Monday to Saturday, from 7:30pm to 10:30pm.
The hotel’s prime location means you’re never too far from the city’s major attractions. Walking along the narrow streets promises a feast for the eyes, as you pass by iconic sights, one after the other. Start at the iconic Duomo with its impressive dome and neo-Gothic façade, before taking in the Santa Maria Novella, Museo Novecento and more.
How to Get There
Good value for money and a good location. the hotel is very close to the main station of firenze and pretty close to the old city. like a 15-20 min walk. nice and big breakfast, not the best but good enough.
Beware if booking this hotel on bookings.com. This hotel was allowed to access my account and mark it as "cancelled" which caused confusion, as I thought i had cancelled my reservation. Turns out, they HAD marked it as "cancelled" AND then proceeded to charge me the full price of the room and a no-show fee. I'd stay far away from this place if you value transparency, and not being fleeced. As I see it this hotel and bookings.com have basically just stolen money from me. Stay and book at own risk.
My 4 year old kid was sick and vomited suddenly in the lobby. I felt sorry and asked the front desk staff for help. The man gave me a box of tissues, a garbage bag and angrily told me that I should let her vomit in the toilet. Excuse me! It’s a sudden accident by a 4 years old! A gentle ask if the kid is ok would be the first thing I would do as a qualified hospitality professional!
