The Hotel Basilea is a 3-star Florence hotel in the city’s historic San Lorenzo district. Great value does not mean you have to compromise on location, as many of the city’s iconic sites and cultural attractions are within easy walking distance of this budget-friendly Florence hotel. In under 6 minutes, you can pay a visit to Michelangelo’s most famous sculpture, David, in the Galleria dell’Accademia. Alternatively, a 6-minute walk will also bring you to one of Florence’s largest churches and best examples of Renaissance architecture in the city: the Basilica of San Lorenzo. The basilica is the burial site of many of the Medici family and has architectural and design connections with Brunelleschi, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Matteo Nigetti. If you are in need of respite from history and culture, a 5-minute stroll will bring you to the San Lorenzo market where you can embark on some retail therapy.


 

The Hotel Basilea occupies a converted Augustinian convent dating from the 14th century, and features many typical Florentine design touches, including decorative wood floors, casement windows, and exquisite chandeliers. A hearty buffet of Italian and continental favorites is served each morning in the welcoming breakfast room to set you up for a day of sightseeing. The knowledgeable and friendly staff will provide you with a map of the city, information on tourist attractions, and advice on local restaurants. They can also book museum tickets on request, helping you avoid long lines at popular attractions. Relax and unwind on the hotel’s peaceful terrace or in the welcoming bar at the end of the day. Free WiFi is available throughout all common areas of the hotel. Pets are welcome to share your stay at the Basilea Hotel by prior arrangement.


 

Guests praise the hotel’s approachable and well-informed staff, its location within easy walking distance of the city’s most iconic sites, and its good value for money.
