Travellers' Choice
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's Favourite
My wife and I have traveled all over Italy. I have dual citizenship and have traveled here a great deal before I was married. Hotel Calimala is the only place to stay in Florence. We will always stay here from now on, even though we have stayed in many hotels in this town. As with any hotel experience, it begins with the staff. Even before we arrived, Lavinia, at the front desk took over our visit, set us up with all that we needed and even adjusted to the changes we asked her to make. This was all before she had even met us. We have never been made to feel more welcome at a hotel that did not know us yet. Once, we arrived, Stefano, Jessica, and the others stepped in and stepped up. It was like a home away from home, in the most beautiful and amazing town in the world. The hotel itself is a stunning boutique gem, with a great rooftop restaurant/bar, a fitness room, exceptionally comfortable rooms with high ceilings, all the amenities, and several nice touches. There is even free water, soda, chips and other snacks. It is well air-conditioned, which is critical these days. The bathroom and especially the shower are capacious and modern. You can easily block out the light and the sounds of the city, for a good night's sleep. But leave the windows clear the rest of the time. This is the best location in the city, less than a block from the market, where you can buy leather goods during the day, and hear opera sung in the evening. You are close to everything, the Duomo, the Mercato Centrale, the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi. You name it. That means you can come and go as you please, take a nap, grab a drink, relax, and then head back out. If it starts with the staff, it ends with them too. This is almost concierge-level five star assistance, and it comes at a reasonable price and at a prime location. Don't stay anywhere else.

The location is great and the art and the design of the hotel is amazing.. The staff is extremely helpful and they give you great insight about where to go, what to do or what not to do.. it was amazing from beginning till the end.. the only thing is that you should be aware the hotel is located in a very busy street and there is some noise in the rooms

Wonderful hotel in the heart of Florence, close to many great historic sites and surrounded by good restaurants and top shopping. Rooms are very modern, Nespresso machine and complimentary snacks refilled daily. We had a beautifully appointed room with all the best amenities. Wonderful view from corner room. Will stay here again when in Florence!

This is perhaps the best hotel experience we have ever had. The location is fantastic! Hotel Calimala is located very close to the Domo and is a short walk to the market where you can find plenty of leather goods and t shirts, etc. It is also where you can fine the Bronze Pig of Florence Statue. As far as the hotel goes the staff is top notch. They accommodated all our request. The room was spacious for a European hotel and the shower was great! Stay here, you won't be disappointed!
