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 the 2nd time we stayed at this hotel - We stayed a total of 7 days broken up into 3 days followed by 4 days ( we travelled in other parts of Europe in between the 3 days & 4 days ) - The location is central to the Duomo and all points shopping and eating.
It is a boutique hotel, with a great morning breakfast, a welcoming lobby, very clean rooms and the best front desk service. In particular, a young lady named Lara Vitaliti-Asst Front Office Manager was delightful - Always pleasant, super helpful, knowledgeable, customer service oriented and always made you feel welcome when you returned to the hotel. What can I say? This is an absolute Gem in Florence in every way and should not be missed if you're looking to book a hotel in Florence - make sure you ask for Lara - she will provide excellent customer service
Recently spent four nights in Florence and had a great stay. Hotel is very well placed in the old town, very close to most major sites which one wants to see ( Duomo was 11/2 blocks from the hotel). Room was nicely furnished making one feel welcome and comfortable. Check in was very easy, staff was good. Morning breakfast, while no included in the room rate for us, was offered with a discounted fee and was terrific.
