A symbol of Florentine hospitality, since1903 Grand Hotel Baglioni has played a leading role in historic and high society events, providing accommodation within its nineteenth century walls for rulers, heads of state, artists, intellectuals and travelers from around the world. Its imposing mass reaches out towards the sky of Florence standing above the roofs of the centre and looking out on the lovely dome of the Cathedral and Giotto's Campanile. Grand Hotel Baglioni preserves the charm and elegance typical of the Florentine tradition but is also equipped with all the most modern comforts, creating a perfect balance between maintaining tradition and continuously improving its services. The building, former residence to the Carrega Bertolini Princes, features vast, impressive spaces: top quality materials like wood and pietra serena dominate the halls, corridors and stairways, windows still preserve the original glass mounted in lead frames and the very high ceilings are decorated with traditional wooden beams. There are numerous works of art in the hotel including frescos, paintings, statues and an interesting exclusive permanent photo exhibit which uses old and contemporary images to tell one hundred years of Florence's history.

From the Panoramic "Terrazza Brunelleschi" Restaurant you can catch all of Florence in a glimpse: the dome of Santa Maria del Fiore designed by Brunelleschi and Giotto's famous campanile, the roofs of the age-old buildings of the historical center and the green hills that surround the city on the horizon. A true pleasure for your eyes and taste buds, because every day the restaurant offers wonderful traditional Tuscan cuisine created with passion by our chef and other recipes of international cuisine to satisfy all tastes.

Great location and staff

The staff at this hotel are excellent. And the view from the rooftop restaurant must be one of the best in a Florence. Hotel rooms are quirky as you might expect in an old building adapted for hotel use. Breakfast had a good choice, and dinner on the rooftop was excellent. The square that the hotel is in has probably seen better days with the adjacent derelict hotel being something of an eyesore, and there are the inevitable sounds of a city given the central location of the hotel. It would be great if the hotel could install a gym somewhere but that's a small gripe in what for our family was a lovely holiday in a very good hotel.

Italian getaway

Picked this hotel for its reviews and location. Could not have asked for a better location, within easy walking distance to all the main attractions. Only downside was the bed, although big was very hard. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Florence

This hotel is charming and romantic. The staff was accommodating and the amenities were fantastic. The hotel was located close to the train station, but also very close to river and the sights. I would recommend this hotel.

Perfect Florence experience

The Grand Baglioni offers the enduring charm of Florence, a feeling of place and of grandeur, as well as 21st century conveniences. The staff is extremely patient and helpful, and very accommodating to traveler's needs. Hopefully, when I return to Florence, I will again stay at this hotel. The location, the staff, the beauty of the rooms, the breakfast buffet, as well as the spectacular view from the restaurant terrace all add up to a fantastic Florentian experience!

An Old World Gem

This Hotel is an old world gem. The staff was great. At first they put us in a room too far away from the center of the hotel, and when asked about a change, they did it right away and sent someone to help. The location is grewat, near the RR station, with access to all public transport. And it is located near everything you want to see in Florence

Review of Grand Hotel Baglioni

The hotel was old but seemed nice. After the first night, we awoke with numerous red marks, mostly on arms, legs, and back that were small, red, and itchy, classic for bedbug bites. We did not see the bugs but have never experienced anything like this before. There is no air conditioning, fan, or ventilation and so the window was kept open. I would not recommend this hotel, under these circumstances!!!

Grand Baglioni -A very nice hotel

We were on a vacation and the staff was courteous as well as effecient to book the advance tickets for the 2 important museums - which we otherwise coundn't have made waiting in the long queue.It's an old property very well renovated without losing the old charm. Very convenient location - just a short walk from the main rail station -very convenient for day journey to Pisa.

Great Location

When we first arrived at the hotel, they did not have our reservation from Orbitz. Luckily we had brought a copy of the receipt with us. Within a few minutes they were able to find a room for us. The staff was nice. Every morning we ate the included breakfast. It was served in the restaurant on the top floor. It gave a beautiful view of Florence. The location is great. The walk is not that far to most of the more popular places. We highly recommend this place, but you might want to call to ahead of time make sure they have your reservation.

Eat at one of the numerous small restaurants that are a short walk from the hotel. The prices are very good, and the food is great.
