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
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.
When you book a room in Florence in a small luxury hotels of the world you expect noting then the best, the room was average, dinner bellow average, in a common trattoria food is better, wifi not good, but service was very good and kind, and the hotel is a nice place in a location that is center but a bit off so you need to walk or take a cab.
We were double upgraded for a small fee in the other building facing the garden. Lovely suite with two bathrooms, separate dining room. Comfortable bed, nice toiletries. Free breakfast for two as SLH member. Good dining options within walking distance. Quiet neighbourhood .
