Which Florence bed and breakfasts and hotels are the best? I have chosen a handful of hotels and bed & breakfasts ranging from three to five stars, all of which I can recommend with the greatest of confidence. These are the places I stay when in Florence.
Florence bed and breakfasts are numerous but the incredible La Dimora degli Angeli (Home of Angels) is very special. This is quite some place, in the perfect location right around the corner from the Duomo. It’s one of the very few places I have ever stayed where there is nothing I can find fault with. None of the many other Florence bed and breakfasts or hotels can compare. For maps, booking details and other reviews please click here.
Hotel l’Orologio means watch in Italian and this four star hotel is run with a Swiss-like precision and attention to cleanliness and detail. Every floor is dedicated to a famous watchmaker which is certainly a little different but works out rather nice. A good location is the cherry on top – definitely the best 4 star hotel in Florence.

The Hotel David is the only one of all the 3 star hotels in Florence I would have no hesitation in recommending. A warm welcome always awaits you at the David with staff going out of their way to make your time in Florence special, most other places couldn't care less. Clean, spacious rooms and a good location make this easily the best 3 star hotel in Florence. For maps, booking details and other reviews please click here.
I tend to prefer smaller five star hotels and the Golden Tower is the five star boutique hotel in Florence I enjoy most. The hotel has a lovely wellness centre and spa and because of the small size you are treated not like a number but as a very special guest. Location too is good and unlike many hotels in Florence the rooms are very quite so if you need your beauty sleep after a hard day’s sightseeing this is just the place.
