What a Fantastic Hotel!
The Grand Hotel Minerva was PERFECT in every way! The hotel is absolutely beautiful. Great location. We walked from the train station a 5 - 10 min walk. They gave us an upgraded room with a small balcony. It is in walking distance of all the big sights in Florence. The breakfast was wonderful! The best part of the stay was the staff at the hotel. They were so accommodating and very nice. If you are in Florence, stay at the Grand Hotel Minerva. You will not be disappointed at all!

Elegant Oasis in the Piazza di Santa Maria Novella
We only stayed one night at the end of a trip through Tuscany. However, grand Hotel Mineva ended our trip on a high note. We had reserved a triple room. We arrived early and the room was not ready. While the bellman was getting our luggage from the car, the front desk upgraded us to a very roomy and nicely appointed Junior suite which was immediately available. That made it easy for us to refresh, then return our rental car and start our afternoon of sightseeing. The hotel is ideally located directly on the piazza next to the church of Santa Maria Novella. It is central to restaurants, shopping, the river, and all of the major sights in Florence. In the morning, it was just an easy 5 minute walk with our luggage to the SMN train station. We would definitely return to grand hotel Minerva for a longer stay next trip.
