Tornabuoni Beacci

Via Tornabuoni 3, Florence, Tuscany 50123, Italy

Mind your wallet as this hotel is located on the chicest shopping street in Florence. Tucked between Ferragamo, Valentino, and Dior, this relatively reasonably priced spot is carved out of a 15th-Century building and has been operating as a hotel since the 1800s. Today, it prides itself on giving guests an authentic Florentine experience with warm service, uniquely designed rooms, and a central location nearby every major attraction.

Each room is individually designed, but there are typically hardwood floors, vintage and antique furnishings, cushioned headboards, and pastel colors in classic Florentine style. Some rooms have views of the piazza below and from the deluxe category and up, free coffee and tea. The most stunning room in the hotel is the frescoed suite which features original 15th-Century paintings lining the ceiling and every wall.

YOU SHOULD KNOW That tea and coffee is free, but after one refill, you’ll have to pay for more.

Bathrooms are decked out with hardwood or tiled floors with rain showers, towel heaters, and bidets. Perfumeria Inglese products are standard.


The lobby is really just a check-in area with green marble floors and a grand staircase leading to the rooms and common spaces above. There are a number of small communal reading and lounging spaces on the upper floors of the hotel.


Breakfast is served in a grand breakfast room from 7-10 am. While you can order food on the rooftop terrace (summer only), it’s not really a place for dining. The hotel, however, is owned by the famed Harry’s Bar where you can get 20% off all food and drinks during your stay.


Similar to the restaurant, the bar, while available to guests on the rooftop, the hotel tries to push guests to Harry’s Bar during their stay. Having a drink on the roof pre-dinner is pretty spectacular, however.


Getting Around

The hotel is just north of the Santa Trinita bridge giving you easy access to either side of the river. Every major attraction is nearby and walking to restaurants, bars, and shopping is incredibly easy. Don’t bother renting a car as it’s really confusing to figure out the city center rules.


Harry’s Bar (6-minute walk) has great Tuscan fare and you get 20% off during your stay. For a Michelin rated spot, check out Caffé dell’Oro (4-minute walk) for unique takes on Italian cuisine.


Again, head over to Harry’s Bar (6-minute walk) as they’re the inventor of the Bellini cocktail and, you know, 20% off. If you like to people watch, La Terrazza (5-minute walk) is an outdoor patio spot at the Hotel Continentale with great drinks to go with your gawking.


Being in the heart of the city has its perks, and this converted 15th-Century spot is smack dab in the middle. Besides being next to the fanciest shops in town and walking distance to all major attractions, the hotel itself reminds guests of what Renaissance living is like. With that can come a feeling of being a little dated, but the property is class all the way through and the price point is reasonable considering the location.
