Grand Hotel Minerva, Florence
Excellent4.0 / 5
The Grand Hotel Minerva was just Ok, but great for European standards at a reasonable price. The whole reason for staying with them was....their rooftop deck. However, upon arriving, we noticed that the rooftop deck was closed - such a let down. Instead, we just went to The Westin - which I would recommend staying. The Grand Hotel Minerva was clean. The service was friendly. However, they missed on the details, and honestly, it was their loss. They didn't restock the minibar - my girlfriend and I clear out every water available...every night. So not only is that lost revenue, but it's an inconvenience-but we managed to save money by buying waters elsewhere. Also, we constantly had to ask the front desk for items: Ex. since the rooftop bar was closed and it was BYBO, we needed a wine opener. We're in Italy - a wine opener should be a given. It was just a hassle taking the SLOW elevator up and down, or the stairs. Whatever. It was cheap and for that, I would recommend the hotel. However, I think I'd probably stay at the Westin next time, even with the premium.

Perfect Hotel Perfect Location
We loved this hotel. The hotel sits next to the Cathedral on the corner in the plaza. There are several restaurants in the plaza and it's only about 3 blocks from the Duomo. The staff was exceptional and it was very modern and rather chic. The room was a decent size and brand new. Their breakfast was very good with lots of choices.

A good hotel made a mistake and becomes great
I should preface this with the statement this was supposed to be a 2 night stay. I accidently booked the hotel as 2 stays of 1 night a piece because I was doing so on my cellphone while hungover. The first night I was walked from the hotel and they booked me across the street in a decidedly inferior hotel. They did call to say they'd done this beforehand, but I genuinely think they were surprised at how much I disliked the other hotel since "it had recently been renovated" and "It's a 4 star hotel". I appreciated their efforts in finding me other accommodation, and decided to give them a chance with my second night's stay. They put me in one of their nicest rooms and gave me a drink as part of their apology. The room was excellent, the hotel bar friendly (the free drink may have helped) and breakfast was really very good. The location is 5 minutes walk to the Duomo, 10 minutes walk to the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze (Statue of David), 20 minutes walk to the Piazzale Michelangelo and 7.5 minutes to the main train station. I really can't begin to describe how nice the staff were, in spite of everything I went through. They seemed to genuinely care that I'd receive the best treatment and were highly proactive in making up for their mistake or clearing up any confusion.
