Grand Hotel Minerva, Florence
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.

Great hotel, centrally located in Florence!
Hotel was centrally located and you could walk to all the major attractions in Florence. Service was excellent. Roof top is great with a swimming pool and roof top bar that is open till midnight. Great views of Florence from rooftop!

Great time at Grand Hotel Minerva
This was our 3rd time at Hotel Minerva, which was wonderful. The Hotel is great, and the service was great, friendly and helpful. The Breakfast was fabulous as always!! Location is the best, and would definitely would stay here again. 2 of my sisters were Florence, but stayed at different hotel, but couldn't believe the Piazza outside our window. Great time!!

From upset to delight!
The staff is extremely responsive. We had a horrible problem with our air conditioning-there were fumes coming from the unit. After reporting the issue our room was changed to a lovely suite! This is a great hotel in a marvelous location.
