Excellent updated hotel. Perfect stay

Oct 2021 | cohenfamily
I spent 6 nights at Grand Hotel Minerva in October of 2021. Every aspect of the hotel was a pleasure. It is tastefully and beautifully updated. My room was large and looked out onto the square and I could see the sun rise each morning. The reception could not have been more accommodating. The gym was clean and modern. The breakfast was fresh and diverse. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The location is a 5 minute walk from all the important locations. And a 5 minute walk from the train station. Definitely my new home in Florence.

Awesome hotel and staff

We booked the hotel based on reviews and proximity to the train station. Elegant and well located next to Santa Maria Novella. Main plaza where it seems everyone passes by. The hotel is excellent. Rooms are cleaned daily and staff goes above and beyond. Hotel room wasn’t ready when we arrived so we left our luggage and went out into town. By the time we got back we were personally escorted to our room where our luggage was already brought up. We also needed to extend our stay and even though we booked through Expedia we got an additional couple days stay with no problems!

Love Florence and this hotel was fantastic!

We have been to Florence many time and first time staying in this beautiful boutique hotel on the Piazza. Great customer service, fantastic breakfast to fuel you for a full day in Florence. The rooms are beautiful- book one that look out on the Piazza. They have a rooftop restaurant and the views of the Duomo at nigh are spectacular! This was a wonderful time to go to Italy as there were no crowds- even the Uffizi did not have a line. If we go to Florence again this will be my hotel of choice..
