Hotel Donatello - Florence

3 stars
Piazza Indipendenza 23, Florence, FI, 50129, Italy, ‏‎1-877-214-4288

The Hotel Donatello is a 3-star Florence hotel close to the historic city center and all the sights. A 5-minute walk from Santa Maria Novella train station through the pleasant, tree-lined Piazza Indipendenza brings you to this boutique hotel in central Florence. The Donatello is situated in the charming neighborhood of San Lorenzo, with its famous markets easily reached on foot in 5 minutes.

The former residence of a wealthy Florentine family, Hotel Donatello occupies a historic 19th-century townhouse. The hotel has been tastefully renovated to retain or reproduce many of its original features, including traditional terra cotta tiles, Italian colored marble, and striking Murano glass chandeliers from Venice. Despite its proximity to the city center, the Donatello exudes an oasis of peace and tranquility, with the verdant piazza on one side and its own private garden courtyard on the other. During the summer months you can enjoy an al fresco drink on the terrace, while in winter you can cozy up next to the open fireplace in the lounge. WiFi is available throughout the hotel, and parking is available too.

Locals and visitors alike flock to the atmospheric street stalls for bargains in leather goods, handicrafts, and colorful souvenirs. A 10-minute stroll from the hotel takes you to the San Lorenzo basilica, the parish church of the city’s powerful Medici family. The building was designed by Brunelleschi, Florence’s most celebrated architect of the Renaissance, although not completed until after his death. Visit the New Sacristy to view the Medici tombs designed by Michelangelo. Ten minutes’ walk from the Hotel Donatello also takes you to the Galleria dell’Accademia, home of Michelangelo’s iconic David as well as paintings by Uccello and Botticelli and an important collection of Russian icons.


 

Guests praise the Hotel Donatello for its great location, helpful staff, and welcoming ambience. Visitors love the design touches that reflect history of the building. The breakfast buffet scores highly for quality and choice.
