Birthplace of the Renaissance and the capital of beautiful Tuscany, the riverside city of Florence is a firm Italian favorite, with countless historic landmarks, delicious cuisine and, of course, wine to match. Along with its impressive list of must-sees, including its iconic cathedral, the Duomo, as well as masterpieces by Da Vinci and Michelangelo’s David, modern-day attractions abound too, such as world-class shopping at places like Gucci and Roberto Cavalli. The list of contemporary draws should also include Hotel Cerratini Firenze MGallery by Sofitel, a revamped gem in the city’s historic heart. Housed in a 17th-century building but boasting thoroughly modern interiors, the hotel sets the tone for an indulgent stay with a welcome drink and delicious cantuccini cookies. There’s also a well-stocked art library (fitting, considering the hotel’s surroundings), and after a day spent exploring Florence, you can return for a coffee or something stronger in Il Michelangelo. Superior rooms are painted in soothing tones or grey, with a gleaming marble bathroom and complimentary Roberto Cavalli toiletries. Soundproofing and air conditioning ensure a quiet and comfortable stay. The hotel bar, Il Michelangelo, features a suitable grand design, with a glass roof, large mirrors and comfortable seating. It serves delicious Tuscan cuisine, accompanied by some of the region’s finest wines.
In the Area
The hotel is conveniently located near Via de Tornabuoni, a fabulous shopping street packed with upscale fashion boutiques. It’s also within walking distance of major sites in the historic center, such as the Duomo, Dante’s house and Santa Maria Novella. Climb up to Fortezza de Basso for great city views, or visit the Uffizi Gallery ten minutes away. You’re also close to the railway station and not far from Ponte Trinata bridge and the Arno River.
How to Get There
The hotel is just beyond the shadow of the Duomo, putting you close enough to the action but far enough away to not be overwhelmed by it. The physical plant is maintained in perfect condition and is immaculate. Our room was well appointed and spotless. All of the foregoing is secondary to the quality of the people who work at the hotel. While Stefania was our personal guardian angel, her colleagues response to any question was "yes" and each yes was accompanied by a smile. When we checked out it was like saying goodbye to family who's company you treasure.
This hotel is in a fantastic location. It is within minutes walk of Duomo.
The staff was amazing and went above and beyond expectations.
A special mention to Elisabetta for
all her help, kindness and hard work and also Tawfiq who was very helpful and made our stay extra special.

in Florence and will make your stay
perfect. Thanks again for a great stay.
