I had a nine day visit to Florence for business/pleasure and decided to split my hotel stay between The Four Seasons and The Regency Hotel.
Obviously my stay at the Four Seasons was AMAZING!! I was very concerned that I would be disappointed switching to the Regency Hotel during my trip.
That was not the case at all....I was pleasantly surprised starting with the professional staff greeting me upon arrival ....and they even moved my luggage from The Four Seasons to The Regency in about 15 mins. The hotel is Beautiful...filled with art and ornate architecture.
My room was quite spacious with all the amenities that I would need...blow-dryer, make up mirror etc.. large, comfortable King sized bet...50-60 inch. flat screen ( Italian only ) bring your laptop if you want to watch tv.
The room is quiet due to the location (no earplugs necessary) I especially enjoyed the quiet location after my long day of sightseeing and walking. You can easily get overloaded with the sights and sounds of the city and it is really nice to return to a quiet, calm location.
The buffet breakfast is wonderful!! It is a full breakfast with fabulous food. They offer fresh fruit,
eggs ( cooked to order) a variety of meats, salmon, a variety of juice and really good coffee.
It is exactly like a restaurant...probably the best "breakfast included" I have ever had.
My advice is to stay at the Regency Hotel and visit the Four Seasons.
- 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
