“Designer-hotel in great location, close to the station, overlooking the striking church of Santa Maria Novella, and only five minutes from the Duomo. Rooms are large and uncluttered, the best overlooking the piazza, and corridors are dotted with whimsical design features.”

Hotel Overview

“Unlike many of Florence’s hipper hotels, which can be a little bit too self-regarding, Garibaldi Blu injects a sense of fun into its designer-cool spaces; it feels both slick and modern yet relaxed. Plus it’s in a great location just minutes from the main railway station.
The 18th-century townhouse has been pared down to its original features - stone floors, Corinthian pillars and stone vaulting in the central lobby-lounge; frescoed walls in some of the bedrooms - and then mixed with whimsical items such as fake palm trees (made out of recycled tyres) and life-size models of cartoon super-heroes such as Superman and Wonder Woman. (The latter are a homage to Giuseppi Garibaldi, General and politician, who made a speech from one of the building’s balconies.)
The rooms are cool and spare with parquet floors, retro-style furnishings, modish-coloured walls in denim blue, grey or cranberry, and modern art. The best rooms overlook the piazza; some have a balcony; the inner-courtyard rooms are the quietest. Breakfast is a buzzy affair with a decent choice of cheeses, meats, pastries and eggs. In the summer months, bag a table in the courtyard.”
