If you are over 70, have arthritic knees or need a walking aid (such as a stick), this hotel is sadly not for you. It is not only just a little off the beaten track of tourist favourites (not a problem at all for the able-bodied, fleet-of-foot and those addicted to taxis), it also has a fair few steps, at the entrance, to some of the rooms and to the outdoor dining room. If these considerations do not bother you and you enjoy well-run boutique hotels with excellent service, high-quality towels and linens changed by some sort of housekeeping magic and meal times and room settings which reflect a more leisurely age, then you'll enjoy the pampering and the quiet relaxation the Regency offers at the end of a busy sight-seeing day. Not really a place for kids or the boisterous.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Once upon a time when the city of Florence was the Italian Capital, Hotel Regency served as a retreat to high government officials and ministers of the State. Today, the nineteenth century villa located in the heart of Florence is a five star property and a long time member of the prestigious "The Small Luxury Hotels". The hotel overlooks pristine Piazza D'Azeglio, framed by monasteries, ancient cloisters, famous museums, the Synagogue and, even more impressive, maintains the private villa-like air, ensuring travellers a memorable experience. Affacciato su una delle più belle "piazze salotto" fiorentine, immerso nel verde e nella tranquillità, l'Hotel Regency conserva ancora il fascino vintage della residenza ottocentesca di ministri e alti funzionari, con l'atmosfera di una dimora privata di gran lusso. Collocato nel centro storico cittadino, in una posizione invidiabile, consente di godere della bellezza delle opere d'arte che rendono unica questa città come i palazzi rinascimentali, le chiese, i chiostri ed i musei tra i più prestigiosi al mondo. ... more less
