Great Hotel Value
The staff was amazing with help in extending our stay, revising train travel schedule and accommodating all our needs. Special thanks to Palo. Loved the junior suite and the location is very convenient to most major sites of interest. Overall the hotel is an excellent value.

Great location. Awesome front of house.
Front of house was great. Very helpful. Remodeled rooms are very comfortable. Roof deck is terrific. The only complaint we had was Maitre ‘D who seemed a bit out of sorts....

Fantastic Stay - we must return!
Grand Hotel Minerva saved us from an otherwise would be horrific trip to Florence. We found ourselves in a rented house with broken heating system and lukewarm warm water in the middle of the winter – FYI, still in dispute with the popular unicorn site after two weeks; I will never use it again. Luckily, we found this hotel nearby, what a major upgrade! Check in was a breeze – they let us check in much earlier. The hotel was clearly updated and well maintained. Modern stylish restaurant and bar onsite. The location was fantastic. Right next to Santa Maria Novella Church, within 15 mins walk to Uffizi, Boboli garden, Pitti Palace and the world-famous Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral. An abundance of great restaurants nearby. The room was spotless, spacious bathroom with lush thick towers. View from the rooftop is priceless – you have all Florence under your eyes! The rooftop pool and bar are closed for winter, I can imagine how wonderful it would be in summer time. We’ll be coming back for sure. Please keep up the good work!

Happy stay
Nice staffs, room cleaning and breakfast. Awesome location! It only takes 20 mins walk at most to almost every where!

This served as a truly grand experience. I chose it because it was close to the train station, but it’s close to all the sights and yet allows you to remain away from the fray.
