Luxury hotels in Florence historic centre of 3 & 4 stars

Luxury hotels in Florence that you can walk to all the attractions from


Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore Florence - The Duomo

Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore - The Duomo

Luxury hotels in Florence right in the heart of the city centre are of course widespread, although at peak times may sell out well in advance. These are full service hotels of three and four star category.


We have a separate dedicated page of budget hotels in the historic centre of Florence where you can pick up rooms less than €100 even at peak times.


As you would expect, room rates in Florence are highly seasonal with peak rates on the shoulder months of April to June and September to November. You also pay a sizable premium at most hotels for staying at the weekend over mid-week for most of the year.


If you are looking to stay in one of the peak months and especially at the weekend, try to book at least 2 months or more in advance to avoid availability issues at the best choices.


Hotels of the well known global luxury chains do not have a presence in the historic centre of Florence. With the notable exception of a Best Western four star hotel, the chain hotels that do exist are outside the historic centre and you will need a bus, tram or taxi into the centre.


Once in the historic centre you are no more than 15 minutes' walk from anywhere. There is a bus service if you need it, but for most, walking is the way to get around the historic centre of Florence.


Most luxury hotels in Florence include breakfast in the room rate, but not all, and what you get will also vary widely from continental style coffee and croissants to an American style full buffet. Free wi-fi is also the standard, but again there are exceptions and in some properties it is only available in public areas not in rooms.


Like many major cities in Italy, Florence now imposes a small daily tax on tourists. The tax is levied by hotels and is usually not included in any prepaid arrangements or package deals. The amount you pay will differ according to the grade of accommodation and should be stated at the time you reserve.

Again, even if you have prepaid for your accommodation you will still have to pay this tax when at the hotel during your stay.
