THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

You can't get more central than this, right in the heart of the upmarket shopping district of the centro storico between Via Tornabuoni and Piazza della Repubblica. The major sights of the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi gallery and Palazzo Vecchio are all within a ten-minute walk.

By plane: direct flights from London to Florence take over 2 hours. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport. Parking nearby costs €60 per day. Book flights to Florence.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The hotel has a rich history as it dates back to Victorian times and was a stop off on the Grand Tour. A renovation has left the interiors fresh and with contemporary flourishes, while being true to the architectural history. A new 'Bristol' wing occupies what was once the Banca di Roma next door.

THE FACILITIES

There is old-fashioned personal service here and both reception and concierge will help with tips about how to enjoy the city. In the 'Bristol' wing a subterranean spa occupies the site of the old Roman baths and is the largest in Florence. Along with the usual pool, steam and sauna, you can have a water-jet massage.
