2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Located in the heart of the historic center of Florence, our luxurious 4-star boutique hotel is housed in the sixteenth-century Palazzo degli Angeli, well-known as the home of intellectuals. Renovations led by designer Alex Meitlis involved the use of authentic materials such as pietra serena and Tuscan marble, along with contemporary furniture, to leave the Florentine soul of the building intact. The sixteenth-century charm of the origins and the faithfully preserved stone walls blend with a modern design, the brightly colored palettes give the hotel a unique and inimitable style. The rooms and common areas are characterized by high quality prints and masterpieces by international talents: a true compendium of contemporary art, in which you will immerse yourself in every moment of your day in Florence!

Hotel Calimala is everything and more. The hotel is extremely clean and modern. The rooms have great character a mix of classic Italian with modern touches. 2-3 minute walk one way you’re at the foot steps at the Duomo and 2-4 minute walk the other way and you’re at Ponte Vecchio. Couldn’t ask for a better central location. Staff is very nice and helpful. Reasonably priced as well. Would highly recommend.

The first view of the Hotel Calimala in Florence was of refined elegance. The building is a beautifully restored and modernized Florentine building. The rooms are not large, but very well appointed , with comfortable beds and lovely, artistically designed bathroom. The hotel is located in the heart of the shopping and restaurant district, within easy walking distance of historic sites and museums. Many high end shops are nearby and seemingly countless restaurants. The hotel has a small restaurant and bar on the top floor of the building. The staff we encountered were friendly, professional and accommodating. We really enjoyed this lovely hotel in beautiful and lively Florence!

Fantastic experience! Central position close to all museums and restaurants, just 10 minutes walking from Santa Maria Novella Railway Station. Check-out was fast. Our deluxe room was very comfortable and design. The room was very quiet considering that the hotel is located in the main street of Florence. All soft drinks in mini bar was complimentary. The staff was always kind, smiley and available for all pur requests. The terrace rooftop bar has amazing views, great atmosphere and cocktails. We appreciate that at 3rd floor there was a lounge common area where you can enjoy the film without sound but with subtitles. Since this weekend was important for all who is fighting against the violence of women, we really like the initiative of showing the masterpiece film of Fellini “The nights of Cabiria”. Great idea! We will definitely come back next time!
