I choose Mercure Firenze Centro, a modern and elegantly designed 4-star hotel with 85 spacious air-conditioned rooms, half of which have large balconies, a Caffé Lounge with a private courtyard where you can enjoy your favorite drink after visiting the beauties of the city.
The Hotel lt is located close to Basilica of Santa Maria Novella and boasts a strategic location near a train station. From the Hotel you can explore the city of Florence on foot.
A must see!
Galleria dell’Accademia and Palazzo Vecchio are two places not to be missed.
Other top attractions: Medici Chapels, Basilica of Santa Maria Novella and the numerous Renaissance treasures of the Tuscan capital such as Santa Maria del Fiore, Brunelleschi’s Dome, Giotto’s Bell Tower and the Baptistery,
Ponte Vecchio with its shops is one of the most romantic places in the world, while the Uffizi, and Bargello galleries host the works of the fathers of the Renaissance: Giotto, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Raphael and Donatello.
Not to mention the wonderful Florentine gastronomy that you will discover at the Central Market, just 3 minutes walk from the Hotel.Try the traditional paysan soups ” Ribollita and “Pappa al pomodoro” also , if you are into meat, indulge into a “fiorentina steak” or the “crostino ai fegatini” or the iconic tripe sandwich called ” lampredotto”
The Mercure staff is professional and welcoming staff, attentive to the needs of the customer who, as far as possible, they always try to satisfy. I actually asked to leave a trolley for couple of days after my departure and there was no problem. I really appreciated.!
I stayed in room 602 ,very spacious with comfortable bathroom and little terrace to enjoy a romantic sunset.The breakfast has a lot of choice and the staff are attentive to customers’ needs
A definitely positive experience!
