Rooms dressed in richly colored fabrics and antique-style furniture remain faithful to the premises'19th-century origins as a private mansion. Meanwhile, the noise and crowds of Florence seem far from this stylish retreat in a residential district near the Sinagoga, though you're not more than 10 minutes from the Accademia and Michelangelo's David. Across the street is Piazza d'Azeglio, a small public park that somehow evokes 19th-century middle Europe. The restaurant
here is equally sophisticated.

My very wonderful husband arranged for us to spend our honeymoon here several years ago. They gave us an upgrade on arrival. Its great to see the Regency is still as magical as I remember it. The staff could not have been more gracious and helpful. They are very willing to get you taxis, tickets,recommend and reserve for restaurants if you need them. A great restaurant on site for dinner- still getting good reviews, best breakfast anywhere- we still
talk about it! Yes, away from the center,agree tho you see things you wouldn't otherwise. The quiet and peace and attention is worth it and if you want to come home and collapse after a day of fighting tourist crowds. A great value.

I stayed here in 1998 and loved it. The room was beautiful, and the food was delicious (the restaurant is a must). Best was the service; the helpful concierge knew everything about Florence. The only drawback is that it's a little removed from the major sites.
