Four Star Florence hotels

Most popular areas in Florence for 4-star hotels

There’s an abundance of flashy 4-star hotels sprinkled across Florence’s winding cobbled streets and sun-draped piazzas. For full immersion in Florence’s wealth of Medieval Renaissance architecture, stay in one of the 4-star hotels in the heart of Florence’s central old city. A selection of regal 4-star hotels also line the boulevard of Via della Scala, northeast of the center, near the main train station. Several 4-star hotels dot the south bank of the shimmering Arno, and enjoy a quieter atmosphere.

Top 4-star hotels in Florence

The Grand Hotel Cavour is a stylish centrally located haven offering airy and regal ensuite rooms, valet parking, and a starry rooftop terrace with sweeping views over the Florence Cathedral. The Firenze Number Nine Wellness Hotel is another stately city center getaway, where floor-to-ceiling windows flood the spacious guestrooms with natural light. There’s an in-house full-service spa, too. The NH Firenze is based on the banks of the shimmering Arno, and provides sleek modern ensuite guestrooms and a relaxed bar lounge and upscale restaurant.

Where to find the best restaurants in Florence

The city’s Santa Croce district – a small, historic central quarter gathered around the Gothic-revival Santa Croce church – is full of fine dining Florentine restaurants, serving local specialties, like charcoal-cooked Tuscan steak, alongside vintage wines. The central Strozzi neighborhood, just south of the train station, is similarly full of upper-end traditional Tuscan restaurants, some with roof terrace seating. On the southern bank of the Arno, in the Palazzo Pitti neighborhood, you’ll find restaurants loved by locals with a strong seafood focus.

The most popular things to do in Florence

Florence’s wealth of museums and galleries welcome culture vultures with open arms. Top on the list of any art lover’s Florence tour should be the Uffizi Gallery, a 16th-century riverfront complex containing marble floored corridors and exhibition rooms full of fine European artworks by the likes of Botticelli, Da Vinci, and Raphael. The Galleria dell’Accademia is another key Florentine museum – behind its unassuming whitewashed facade, this gallery houses Michelangelo’s David, a looming marble statue of the biblical hero. Architecture enthusiasts, meanwhile, will want to visit the Florence Cathedral. This mammoth Medieval structure boasts a red, green, and white marble facade inlaid with statuettes and rose windows. It is capped by an enormous red-tiled dome – known as the Duomo – which has on its underside an intricate 16th-century fresco detailing a heavenly scene.

Best ways to get around Florence

Florence’s old city is best explored by walking. The labyrinth-like streets – walled by red-roofed Renaissance buildings and lined with cafés, restaurants, and trinket stores – easily accommodate pedestrians. Bike rentals are also a popular option for exploring this area. Out of the historic core, you can cruise around by public bus, or taxicab – these are best booked in advance from a hotel, restaurant, or by calling a cab company. Florence also has one tram line – starting at the main train station – with several tourist-convenient central stops.
