The Montebellow Splendid Hotel Florence is known for both luxury and hospitality. Rooms and common areas are classically furnished in rich, soothing tones, and pleasingly accented by marble, antiques, and mosaics. The furniture is personally selected by the hands-on hotel owner. The hotel's intimate size translates to maximum service and hospitality, an uncompromising attention to detail that aims to exceed each guest's expectations.
Rooms

Each guest room or suite has been meticulously designed with a distinctive style and look. Find antiques and original works of art, bathrooms with stately marble, and high-tech electronics, including bed-side controls for the window shutters and the do-not-disturb light on the hallway door. The hotel's proprietary "Sweet Dreams" sleep system guarantees a hygienic and relaxing sleep, with extra-large beds dressed in deluxe Egyptian cotton linens. Other features include air conditioning, cable/satellite TV, telephone, mini-bar, telephone with voicemail, hairdryer, radio, and high-speed Interent (fees apply).

a short break during a long trip

Actually I liked everything. The restaurant serves very good meals accompanied by the excellent service. The owners made a very good investment to make the people feel comfortable. But the most unfriendly concierge I ever seen at the departure ( especially comparing with the one who met me at the arrival) spoiled the overall impression.

Great "Business" Hotel

The hotel is better suited for Business, than pleasure. We had two rooms. Both rooms were small, but adequate. Amenities are what was expected of a hotel that catered towards business travelers. Only real issue was that the large gate locks at night and the night-time attendant was either sleeping or off doing something else, because we pressed buzzer and called for 30 minutes prior to being let back into hotel. It was around 1am, and I was rather upset given the temp outside. We finally got a hold of him after the 8th phone call. I asked what had happened and rather than tell me the truth, he insisted that we couldn't have been outside because he would have saw us on cameras. I showed him my phone records (showing 8 calls in 30 minutes) and he ignored me.

Florence Vacation

Great location, Staff was not overly friendly "Luke Warm", compared to other area Five Star Hotels visited. - Hotel advertised Dinner available all days starting April, On arrival no dinning room open on Sunday. After a late arrival, had to seek out another resturant in Florence. - Based on Five Star rating bathrooms were a three star at the most, too small and shower / tub combo very dangerious and difficult to navigate.

Deserves 10 stars (except the restaurant food)

Everything was absolutely fabulous at this attractive little hotel. It couldn't have been nicer in every way except the restaurant. The staff there was gracious, the presentation was good, but the food was awful.

Wonderful week in Florence

Hotel beautiful, bed firm & comfortable, clean. The bathroom bit small for staying a week but nice. The room was quite nice, bit small but to be expected in Europe. Bar & restaurant expensive but lots of great choices within an easy walk. Easy walk to train/bus station for day excursions. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Easy walk to the museums & shopping. tip: be sure to check your bill and mini bar charges!

Beautiful Hotel!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Montebello Splendid Hotel in Florence. We had a spacious, comfortable room for three people with a walk-in closet and large bathroom with shower and jacuzzi. It was extremely hot in Florence and thankfully, the air conditioning worked well. We took advantage of the arrival day welcome dinner with 30% discount, Happy Hour and the Breakfast buffet on our last day. The food was delicious. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood and a little further out from the center of Florence where most of the sights are so we did a lot of walking but that was all right. Florence is a very walkable city. There's no pool (not many hotels have pools) so we walked about a mile to a nearby park with a beautiful olympic size pool. I would highly recommend this hotel if you don't mind doing a little extra walking.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

There are many tours and excursions available. We paid for one tour (Chianti and Tuscan dinner tour) but took a bus to Sienna and explored on our own one day and a train to Viareggio to the beach on another day. You can save money by venturing out on your own and do a little exploring.

Clean and cosy away from the maddening crowds

Stayed five nights at this luxurious hotel located in a quiet part of Florence not too far from the river. The staff were friendly and accomodating, the room was clean and the bed very comfortable to sleep in. As one would expect at a 5 star hotel, the drinks there are not cheap! I can't comment on the facilities available to us since we were too busy out and about enjoying what the city has to offer. There was a curious incident when a peach from a bag we bought from the supermarket was stolen by a cleaner. A telephone call to reception resulted in us receiving a bowl of peaches by way of an apology!
