Hotel Royal - Florence

Via Delle Ruote 50-54 - Florence

Price starting from 130.00

Hotel Royal is housed in a magnificent, late-18th century villa located in a quiet area of Florence, only 0.3 miles (0.5 kilometers) away from the Santa Maria Novella railway station, the Palazzo dei Congressi Convention Hall, and the historic city center. The hotel offers guests the convenience of close proximity to many more important monuments, museums, and commercial streets while remaining a peaceful respite from metropolitan traffic.

The villa, the former residence of the owners until 1950, was turned into a hotel and completely restored under new management by the Messina family. It features ample outdoor parking for a fee, complimentary wireless Internet access, and a beautiful garden. Babysitting/childcare services may be arranged for a fee.

Long weekend break. Stayed in a single room which was small but comfortable and the lovely communal areas and beautiful garden compensated for any shortcomings in the room. There is a very good restaurant Gusto almost opposite the hotel which serves modern italian food with a warm welcome and a complimentary glass of Prosecco with a tasty canape before you order. For some reason the hotel does not mention this restaurant with its other recommendations. Would definitely stay there again - an oasis in a bustling city.

Anyone traveling by car who wants to see Florence should stay here. This little gem is just inside the ring road and has a courtyard for private parking.(for a fee) It is walking distance from all the must-see attractions. As a bonus the best restaurant in Florence is about 50 yards down the street. Taverna Bronzino. GREAT food served in an atmosphere of understated elegance. Don't embarrass yourself, wear your best.
