We are very satisfied with our stay at Montebello Splendid. Due to the flight cancellations before christmas 2010, we arrived one night after we had booked, but we were not charged for the night we did not show. Also, we were upgraded to a superior room with no charge. The room was beatiful and spaceous, wonderful bathroom with jacuzzi. The bar area in the hotel is very pleasant, like a beautiful italian livingroom. The staff were all very nice. Staying at Montebello makes you feel like you are a valued guest in a beautiful home. In the restaurant the food is not splendid. It´s ok, but eating out in Florence is more interesting. But the service was exellent. We will return to Montebello Splendid, and would recommend it with all our hearth! If you go there, do remember to end a long day out with a glass of Brunello in the wonderful bar! That is a must at Montebello! And the Bloddy Mary is perfect!

Location is not very central (10 min walking), but is a very quite and safe area. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are terrific, including the bathrooms. The electronics are a little bit complicated at first sight, but then they work properly Food at the restaurant is excellent, it really worth a visit. Recommended for honeymoon.

Splendid is the perfect name for this property. The room, linens, service, technology and decor are terrific. After 2 weeks in various hotels, I was thrilled to be at this property. The river and all major sights are near, but the crowds are not. I recommend Montebello Splendid highly!

Mi esposa y yo (73-65) estuvimos en el Hotel con nuestras nietas mayores (18-20) ocupando dos habitaciones. Para nosotros el Hotel Montebello Splendid fue excelente en todos los conceptos y servicios:las habitaciones, los desayunos, los servicios y la atención del personal. La situación del Hotel es buena, pues aunque no está en el centro de Florencia, la calidad del Hotel lo compensa ampliamente. Mil gracias al servicio de VENERE¡.

Very nice place, and my first 5-star hotel. The bar was great, although pricey, and the breakfast was good. Location was alright with most sights within walking distance (although 10-15 mins of walking).

I had booked one double room but switched upon arival to 2 single rooms. The rooms were beautiful. The staff was extremely friendly. This hotel is located a block away from the American Embassy or Consulate I'm not sure which and just steps away from the massive amounts of tourists. I would stay here again on my next trip to Florence. Every employee spoke english. Please note I've selected gay couple. I'm gay but was traveling with my Dad. We both had a pleasurable stay.

Great hotel...5 star rooms and service. Staff is amazing....especially the front desk team!! Breakfast buffet is extensive by Italian standards. The only downside is that it is not as central to the tourist sites as other hotels, but far more reasonably priced and just as nice (if not nicer!) than the Savoy. Will definitely stay there again.

I enjoyed my stay at the Montebello hotel very much. As I like walking I did not mind the rather long distance to the main museums. On the other hand the theater is just two blocks away.

This is just a fabulous, beautiful boutique hotel. I would highly recommend it. The price is very good for the quality that you will receive. I will caution you that it is a 10-15 minute walk to the Pont De Vecchio and the Duomo, but the walk is along the Arno River and it is a lovey stroll. This hotel is in a very nice area. They had a dinner special when we were there which was a bottle of wine and a 3 or 4 course dinner at a fixed prix for the first night we were there. The dinner was suprisingly good for hotel food and we had the dinner outside on the patio, not too expensive for a 5-star hotel. The breakfast, included in the price, was excellent.

The hotel was very nice but we were disappointed by how far it is located from the center of the city and proximity to the main attractions. A taxi ride is necessary unless you want to walk a long hike. Also the air conditioner was very loud.

Very nice hotel overall. Beautiful lobby. Breakfast was somewhat below average compared to the 6 other Italian hotels we stayed at during this trip. Hotel is considerably further from the Duomo and the main tourist areas of Florence than is apparent from the maps. Tradeoff is clearly quality versus distance.
