"What a lovely hotel! "
We stayed here for my mother's 50th birthday. The Grand Minerva is situated perfectly in the centre of Florence with wonderful views from the roof top bar. The duomo is a 5 minute walk as well as plenty of restaurants. Our room was great, it was at the front of the hotel. It was spacious and bright. The breakfast was a treat with lots of healthy choices. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They even organised a birthday cake for my mother which we enjoyed in the hotels restaurant. We will definitely be visiting again!
"Convenient, great food and service, and gorgeous views"
We really liked this hotel. It's a short walk and easy walk from the Santa Maria train station, so the convenience if you're coming from out of town is hard to beat. It is also minutes from the Duomo and not far from San Lorenzo and other places. The staff was great, very nice when we checked in, offering us drinks and recommendations. We went up to the roof which, even in the rain, has beautiful views! Our room was big--a chest of drawers would have been nice, since we were there for 4 nights and would've liked to unpack non-hanging clothes, but the suitcase stands and large closet was nice. Free mini-bar--that does not happen very often and it was appreciated. We had a large modern bathroom with great amenities. They have a GREAT breakfast, lots of choices with fresh fruit, cheeses, eggs, cakes, and yogurt, very well done! My criticism for the hotel would be that our room which was on the 3rd floor and overlooked the square, was loud and a bit bright at night. Great view, but if we didn't make an effort to close the outside wooden shutters which are mainly for decoration, it would've been too bright and loud to sleep. We could also hear the housekeeper's cart early in the morning (loud in the closet) and our neighbors. We did not want to change rooms, and eventually got used to it. Not sure what soundproofing they are working on for any further renovations, but they may want to look into it. Other than that, great views, excellent service, and all the other major things you need made this is very enjoyable stay.
"Excellent Hotel 😎"
The Grand Hotel Minerva is an excellent hotel and is very near to the main bus and train station in Florence. We had a deluxe room on the 5th floor, overlooking the square and it was perfect. We were room only as we thought the breakfast was too expensive, but this was not a problem as we were too busy out visiting the sights of Florence, so it was never a problem. Highly recommend and in a good location.
"Tuscany September 2016"
Excellent hotel, great location near to the airport - buffet breakfast very good! Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Rooms very clean and a good size with flat screen TV. In a very quiet area with not much around it need to get a taxi into the main area of Pisa.
"Last stop on our tour of Tuscany"
Great hotel. Newly renovated in most areas. We stayed in an unrenovated unit that wasn't as nice as the renovated common areas. The bathroom could have been better. The staff was fantastic and food in the restaurant was amazing. Sort walk to Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and the many wonderful museums. Great location!
