Housed in a 19th-century palazzo, Hotel Regency is a beautiful marriage of Old World elegance and contemporary convenience. Stuffed full of original Second Empire furnishings and gilded Renaissance artwork good enough to merit museum status, it feels more like a private estate than a hotel. The public areas are a kaleidoscope of styles, colors and patterns. Think rose-colored walls, antique paintings, crème couches, patterned carpeting — and an antique piano forte thrown in for good measure.
Bed and Bath
The 32 guestrooms and nine suites all feature individually selected antique Italian furnishings, rich tapestries, upholstered headboards and silk drapes in a Tuscan color scheme. The bathrooms are equally opulent, with Carrara marble floors, heated towel racks, his and hers sinks and luxe products from 155 Via Veneto.
The Regency is located in a residential neighborhood of leafy sidewalks and posh parks, just a 15-minute walk from Florence’s historic heart. Take a stroll around the private gardens, or view them through the windows of the aptly named Relais le Jardin, a house restaurant that serves delightfully fresh Tuscan dishes. The grand old hotel is also within walking distance of the Santa Croce church and the acclaimed Accademia museum, and the green respite of Piazza Massimo d’Azeglio is across the street.
How to Get There
This boutique hotel is absolutely charming. Perfect location just steps from the Four Seassons, large luxury rooms and bathrooms. The best part of this hotel though is the staff. Incredible and kind. We were used to staying in more mainstream properties like the St. Regis and the Four Seasons, but this time we tried something different and were all impressed. It feels like having your own fabulous place and be welcomed by friends and family as opposed to being in a hotel. Just lovely. Highly recommend and we are demanding guests who expect luxury and service. One more thing, it was quite the bargain.
The Hotel Regency is located in a quiet residential area, but is just a 10-15 minute walk away from the Duomo, Accademia and many nice restaurants. The hotel was quite small, but very nice and classy. The standard rooms are of a good size by European standards and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good, compared to other luxury hotels in Italy that we stayed in. The staff and concierge were fantastic - the concierge can organise everything for you! My only point of improvement for the hotel would be to have tea and coffee making facilities in the standard rooms (they only have them in the suites). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay at the Hotel Regency again.
Beautiful hotel amazing service! Umbrellas provided, central location - 10 min walk to the main square! Breakfast was fruit, cereal yoghurt n cakes etc - hot breakfast is not included in the price! The cleaner came twice a day and made the bed etc lovely staff 🥰
Stayed for three nights in a superior room. Friendly helpful staff, and the rooms are equipped with everything you might need. Breakfast is okay, but only if included with room price. Otherwise I would not pay for it, better to go to a nearby café instead. The hotel is close to everything you might want to see.
A small but classy and intimate hotel. The hotel is in a lovely location...just a short stroll from the bustle of the centre. The staff were friendly staff, great room, great breakfast. We would be happy to return.
