While seeking a hotel for a number of colleagues to attend a conference, I asked an old friend from Florence for a hotel suggestion. He said his parents always book guests at the Montebello Splendid, and now we know why!
This is not a cookie cutter property, but a unique set of buildings around a central courtyard. The property is located on a side street, and once you pass through the front gate, you enter the comfortable ambiance 'away from the crowds',
We hosted a number of business meetings for breakfast and lunch in the restaurant, and the staff was very accommodating of our needs. We also had nightly gatherings in the ornate but comfortable lounge area. The service was very efficient, and over the several days there the staff anticipated our needs with warmth.
We did not have a dinner in the restaurants, but the front desk offered numerous suggestions for business dinners near by - we particularly enjoyed Il Profeto, about a 10 minute walk.
The guest rooms varied among our party, some larger, some smaller, and the bathrooms were very nicely appointed. The windows were very nice and sealed the room from the outside noises when closed.
I look forward to returning to this hotel with my wife in the future!
