One of Florence's most exclusive establishments, the Grand Hotel Minerva occupies a fabulous position in piazza Santa Maria Novella, one of the city's most centrally placed squares. Thanks to careful restoration work supervised by architects Eduardo Detti and Carlo Scarpa, the Grand Hotel Minerva is one of the most prestigious and highly rated hotel in Florence, the chosen residence of numerous celebrities, including the painter Orfeo Tamburi who, in 1963, wrote "from the window of Santa Maria Novella, the hillsides of Fiesole, the fountains, the monuments: Tuscany in a room at Minerva". Grand Hotel Minerva has 102 elegantly furnished rooms, each with its own individual style and affording a unique view over Piazza Santa Maria Novella or the cloisters of the church. On the top floor of the hotel guess find Grand Hotel Minerva's Roof garden and panoramic swimming pool, form where to admire a breathtaking view over the city of Florence. The spacious "I chiostri" restaurant is the ideal venue in which to savour the delectable dishes of Tuscany's great gastronomic tradition either in the main dining room or, al fresco on terrace.
