How to Get There
We stayed in Florence for three nights and chose this hotel on the back of Trip Advisor comments. We were not disappointed. The hotel is based in an excellent location about 10-15 mins walk from the centre of Florence but also in a quiet and peaceful road. We had one of the three rooms which had a balcony overlooking the hotel. Our room was superbly decorated with all facilities. There was also a nice introductory offer of a meal with complimentary bottle of wine for 39euro per night which was excellent value and a high quality. Breakfast was also excellent. The Staff were very courteous and professional without being over the top. This is little gem of a hotel and very well lit at night which maximises its attractiveness. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Florence and represents excellent value. My only minor quibble is the old 1970's type carpet in the corridors - I think its time for them to be replaced!
I saw no other hotels in Florence which I passed which would make me change my mind and would happily stay here again.
From the minute we checked in until the minute we left 5 days later we cannot fault the amazing service of the hotel staff, our beautiful room and wonderful hotel. The Montebello Splendid exceeds all expectations of how you wish a hotel and staff to be.
This old building is a beautiful hotel. The courtyard outside to sit and enjoy , the well appointed rooms to the friendly staff. It is very close to train station but far enough to get hire taxi if you have luggage
