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.

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.

Great hotel

The hotel is wonderful, very clean and updated. It is about 20 minutes from the center of the city although it is an easy walk. There is free wifi. We were very impressed and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Wonderful discovery

From the moment we walked in we were impressed with the hotel. The rooms were spacious, well cared for, robes and slippers provided. The hotel made an excellent recommendation for a special birthday dinner in Florence. I would definitely stay there again.

Favorite Hotel in Italy

The Montebello was not only very comfortable and roomy compared to the other hotels we visited during our stay, but the hotel staff was exceptional. The front desk staff and valet were always helpful and nice, which we did not often find at other hotels. One of the things we loved about this hotel was at night we would order drinks and sit outside and the bar staff would bring us out snacks and check on us often. The rooms had internet that could be purchased and most times had no problems accessing, our room had a king size bed that was quite comfortable and the bathroom was fairly large. We will definitely stay here again.

Absolutely Perfect

Montebello Splendid was just perfect --- splendid. The hotel was smallish and tucked into a beautiful little piece of Florence near the Arno river and the American Embassy. It was a healthy walk along the Arno to get to the main tourist areas but perfect for those who enjoy a stroll after dinner. The hotel was gorgeous --- a step above the Four Seasons. The rooms were smaller but intimate and beautiful with a great bed, bathroom and large windows to catch the Florence breeze. They served a wonderful breakfast with the freshest of everything. I really can't say enough about this hotel. It was incredible and a great value.
