Grand Hotel Baglioni - Florence (province)

4 stars
Piazza Unita Italiana 6, Florence, FI, 50123, Italy, ‏‎1-844-302-2242

Grand Hotel Baglioni is a 4-star luxury Florence hotel located just 5 minutes’ walk from Santa Maria Novella train station. The Basilica di San Lorenzo, burial place of the main members of the famous Medici family, and home to the gorgeous Medici Chapels, is just a 2-minute walk from this central Florence hotel. Florence’s Gothic Duomo, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, which dates back to the 15th century, is a 6-minute stroll through the ancient quarter surrounding the Hotel Baglioni. For a glimpse of more contemporary Florence, head for the fashionable boutiques and stores on Via dè Tornabuoni or Via della Vigna Nuova, both just 7 minutes from the hotel on foot. The old world mingles with the new at the medieval bridge Ponte Vecchio, famous for its jewelry shopping, a leisurely 12-minute wander from Baglioni.


 

The Grand Hotel Baglioni itself is steeped in history. Built within a prince’s 19th-century mansion, the hotel first opened in 1903. Severely damaged during World War II, it was forced to rebuild. However, the owners managed to retain the elegant Florentine décor, while meeting the needs of contemporary comfort. Entering the rich, timber-paneled lobby, you are greeted by the ceremonial marble stairway, a survivor from the building’s royal era. The glamorous lounge area, with refined furniture and lighting, exudes opulence, as does the Terrazza Brunelleschi panoramic restaurant. Here you can enjoy a daily free breakfast with magnificent views over Florence, or watch the sun go down over the dome of the cathedral. In the summer, the roof garden allows you to admire the spectacular scenery while dining al fresco. Downstairs, the American Bar is popular with locals, giving you a chance to mingle with Florentines and fellow guests alike. There is free WiFi throughout the hotel. There is also a wellness center nearby that offers discounts to guests of the Baglioni.


 

Guests of Grand Hotel Baglioni rave about the central location. The invigorating views from the terrace and rooftop garden, and the glamorous and elegant atmosphere also receive high praise.
