Paul Feinstein | June 29, 2018

While you’ll likely be spending most of your time exploring the city, it’s still nice to come back to a hotel with amenities to enhance the experience. Check out this list of the best and most interesting amenities in the birthplace of the Renaissance.

#11

Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo

Why it made the list

It’s always nice to look out your window and feel like you can practically touch the Duomo or snap that perfect pic. But how much does it suck when your phone battery dies. This hotel solves those problems by providing guests with portable batteries to take on the go!

Palazzo Castri 1874

Why it made the list

Another unique space, this hotel’s claim to fame is the 1,000 square-meter garden in its backyard where guests are treated to an indoor/outdoor pool, lemon trees lining the walls, and outdoor loungers for drinks and snacks during warm summer months. Another great amenity here is a Handy device – a clever gadget that gives you free Wi-Fi anywhere in the city along with free international calls to dozens of countries.

#9

Hotel degli Orafi

Why it made the list

This hotel is both famous and infamous. Infamous as it was the site of a tragic terror attack back in the 90s. Famous because it happens to be the hotel that was featured in the 1985 movie A Room with a View. Book far enough ahead and you can stay in that actual room which is the most romantic spot in the hotel with a balcony looking over the river.

#8

Hotel Brunelleschi

Why it made the list

This hotel’s claim to fame is that its home to one of the oldest original towers in town that dates back to 572 A.D. What’s even more impressive is what they found in the basement. Guests can now tour the hotel’s own museum in that very basement where they discovered Ancient Roman ruins. Pretty cool.

#7

Hotel Lungarno

Why it made the list

Part of a group of four hotels owned by the famed Ferragamo family, this riverside hotel sits on the Arno River and gives its guests some of the best views in town. Beyond the view, the amenities are spectacular. First, you can take an art tour of the hotel which just so happens to have original paintings by Picasso and Cocteau just hanging discretely on the wall. The hotel also offers cooking classes, but the cooler learning experience is lessons with the mixologist behind the bar. Also, the Ferragamo bath products are worth pocketing.

#6

Fattoria di Maiano

Why it made the list

Just north of the city in the Fiesole hills, this villa is totally unique. Sitting on 700 acres, the property owners make the most of their space with loads and loads of outdoor amenities. Around the compound you’ll find a kid’s camp, olive groves, a safari tour, and one of the coolest experiences – an off-road learning school courtesy of Land Rover.

Il Salviatino

Why it made the list

Also in the hills of Fiesole, this luxurious five-star villa rests on a 14th Century estate and will make you forget about city life in a matter of minutes. The coolest amenity here is that you can book a truffle hunt with a truffle-hunting expert and his truffle-sniffing dog.
