My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the Duomo and a 5 minute walk to the train station. It is situated on the piazza right next to Santa Maria Novella so it is a nice open...More
We stayed here for 7 nights and it was fantastic. The property is beautiful and staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and was delicious every morning. We had drinks and appitizers on the roof top bar and the views are great. I highly recommend...More
I'm generally a pretty forgiving person with modest standards when it comes to hotels but, of the 6 hotels me and my boyfriend stayed in during our recent trip to Italy, this one nearly ruined our trip.
Grand Minerva is a decent enough hotel -...More

Dear Heather S,
I am truly sorry that your experience with us has been so frustrating.
You are right, this year we were forced to open the pool 20 days later than normally (1st of may) and advertised.
First of all I need and want...More

Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
