Beautiful, modern hotel with a very nice rooftop pool. Modern rooms and comfy. Honest review here - would stay here again! There is not much else to say other than I recommend this place to any visitors to Florence!

We booked the Glance for a 3 night stay and they had exceptional service. I actually stayed there for my birthday and they surprised me with a birthday cake during my birthday breakfast and totally surprised me. Apparently when they saw our passports when we checked in, they communicated to the breakfast staff that it would be my birthday. Amazing rooftop over looking the best location in Florence at a reasonable price which is very rare. Would definitely stay there again.

We spent three nights this June in Florence and stayed at Glance Hotel for all of them. Our entire stay was wonderful. The hotel is in a great location, the staff was friendly and helpful and our hotel room was clean and spacious. As an added bonus, the hotel pool on the roof was an excellent way to spend the late afternoons after exploring Florence. I would highly recommend this hotel!

We booked this hotel for a long weekend only to show up and find that we had no room. There was an issue with my friend's card, though she had been successfully using it everywhere else with no problem. She was not contacted via text, as she had signed up for. We showed up to find we had no room and that every decent place in the vicinity was fully booked. We have been hard pressed to find another place and have had to take a one on the edge of the city. And I do not mind telling you that if I had wanted to pay £1,000 to stay in the wilderness, I would have stayed in England and booked a place in the national forest.

This hotel was great. Centrally located in Florence a five minute walk to the train station and minutes from the market. The staff was extremely helpful. I needed a few documents printed and they did it with no questions asked. The room was spacious, clean, and quiet. There’s plenty of shopping in the area. It’s right in the hustle and bustle of Firenze. I’d definitely stay again.

A well-located modern style hotel with good facilities. We found all the staff to be very pleasant and obliging. Our “Comfort” room was, as described, comfortable! Not huge but perfectly acceptable and contained all we needed - decent bed, necessary facilities (tea/coffee, safe, space for two suitcases, a/c, fridge etc etc.). Bathroom good size ( could do with a couple of hooks or bigger towel rail ). Slight smell from drains ( staff are aware of this problem), very good shower. Loo paper poor quality! Breakfast very good standard and served in pleasant, spacious room. Pleasant rooftop pool and bar. Costs enough but didn’t feel over priced for a tourist spot like Florence. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

We started our honeymoon here and it was a great way to kick off our holiday. The hotel was easy to find from the train station and was only a few minutes walk. The staff were friendly and efficient and even bought us up a lovely bottle of Prosecco which was a nice touch. The hotel is clean, modern and well maintained and is the perfect base for exploring Florence. The breakfast here is lovely too with lots of options, from cooked breakfasts to pastries, cereal, meats, cheeses etc. The best thing was coming back from a hot day exploring Florence and going to the rooftop bar. The swimming pool is heated and offers panoramic views of the city. To chill out here drinking Prosecco in the pool was fantastic! Overall, highly recommended and when we return to Florence we will have no hesitation staying here.

We loved our stay here as the first stop on our honeymoon! The staff is lovely and very helpful -- they even booked reservations for us in advance of our trip. They upgraded our room and brought up a complimentary bottle of prosecco to congratulate us, and the whole team was kind and helpful during our stay. The rooftop pool and bar here are truly special -- there's nothing like a break in a busy day to sit in the pool and sip a cocktail and watch the sun set over Florence! Great location, clean and easy. Highly recommend!

We cannot praise the hotel staff of this hotel enough. Special thanks to Federico for your help during our stay. I had an accident on holidays and needed medical attention. Federico helped my husband on multiple occasions with transport and directions. We had booked this hotel for 2 nights and another hotel in Florence after this. We wished we had cancelled the 2nd hotel and stayed at the Glance. We have travelled a lot and have never experienced such wonderful service. The hotel itself is very clean and bright. The rooftop area is beautiful. I recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Florence. You won’t be disappointed.

Lovely stay in a great location. Good breakfast options and the rooms were modern, nice, and spacious. The customer service from staff is excellent and they will do everything in their power to help the customer. Rooftop pool and bar was nice and the stafd were very friendly.
