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
This is a nice quiet hotel just 800 meters away from Firenze Centrale. My family enjoyed. But I will advise you to avoid rooms 410, 310, 210.
The breakfast was good and avoid the room service. The bar as well is a pretty good
Very supportive team specially the reservations team very supportive appreciated all support fron them will go there surely and thank u for all support even the g.m was supportive anna in reservations also very good
Hotel Cerretani in Florence has all the makings of a great hotel, especially location. Situated between the train station, the Duomo, the shopping district and Piazza Repubblica, it’s the perfect location for walking just about anywhere. The small but well-appointed lobby is welcoming with a bar and breakfast room just off the lobby. The breakfast is fine - not a lot of choices, but enough to get you on your way in the morning. Our room was adequate with a view of the street and windows that opened to provide fresh spring air. Unfortunately, the shortcomings threaten to keep this hotel from being a really goof property. Our shower had mold growing in the far corner, which was disconcerting for a property of this caliber. Twice we had to ask for new towels because they weren’t automatically replaced. We were given drink coupons when we arrived and hoped to redeem them our last night in Florence. But the hotel’s one bartender - one bartender - didn’t come to work that night, so the bar was closed. When we asked if we could have something brought to the room (room service, presumably, was still available), the desk staff was perplexed and said no. Without the bartender, nothing was available. Speaking of desk staff, some were outstanding, others were pathetic. The woman who checked us in was wonderful. The room we were originally given was terrible - small with an alley view. When I returned to the front desk to ask for a change, she quickly accommodated me with a choice of three different options. On the other hand, a man working the following afternoon was obviously overwhelmed; with a large family checking in and no one else at the desk, the rest of us were left to wait nearly 30 minutes to have simple questions answered. It was disappointing. This is an MGallery property by Sofitel, which is why we expected better. I hope management sees fit to invest some time and money in the property so it can be everything it should be at that prime location.
Confortable boutique hotel in downtown Florence close to almost every museum and many restaurants by foot. The service is very nice and check in and out was so quick and simple. The rooms are really beautifully decorated and spacious. You really feel the boutique hotel personalized attention with complimentary flavored water in the lobby when you arrive and afternoon snacks and coffee. We will certainly come back!
I stayed there for 3 days.
Room - air con is too hot. Need to open windows for fresh air. The rest are okay.
Breakfast - average. coffee are self-service.
Lobby - Perhaps some repair work were undergoing. There was a strong toilet smell at lobby / lift entrance.
