The San Firenze Suites, sister apart hotel of the Ponte Vecchio Suites, was opened in 2012 in an old palazzo of Belle Arti from the 1700. Spread on 3 floors, the hotel offers 14 rooms and suites, Deluxe, Junior, Executive and Charming. Views include the Duomo, Piazza San Firenze and are in a very short walk of Piazza Signoria.
This hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Florence with the benefit of being on the upper floors of the old palazzo, hidden from the tourist masses but still close to all sight seeing. As well as the Ponte Vecchio Suites, it doesn’t own a restaurant but the attached bar and café is perfect for a nice breakfast if you do not wish to have it brought to your room.
The rooms recommended are the Deluxe Nr. 402, the Junior 114, but mostly make sure to ask for the corner suite 403, which gives you the spectacular view of Duomo and Piazza San Firenze. Charming Suite Nr. 404 is on two floors, also giving the view of the Duomo and the Nr. 405 suite is green and has a separate kitchen and is the only suite with a small balcony (no views though)
The San Firenze has a spa area in the basement, which needs booking in advance as it is for exclusive use only. A Turkish bath, sauna, whirlpool and massages invite you to wind down and relax from the overwhelming sight seeing. No beauty treatments offered.
