Hotels in Florence

Has anyone stayed at either the JK Place Firenze, The Lungarno the Residenza del Moro, the Helvetia and Brostol or The Grand Hotel Villa Medici with either the Small Luxury Hotels, Leading Hotels of the World or Am Ex Platinum? I really need help choosing a hotel.

from your multiple posts it becomes obvious that you are looking for upscale hotels. several of the ones you mention are new since our last visit a few years ago. in florence, location is everything since you will have to walk everywhere you go. we always stayed at the westin excelsior, because it was closer to the touristic center than the lovely grand hotel villa medici another two long blocks away. the excelsior has a lot of rooms with small balconies overlooking the arno river - a very nice view - and from the name lugarno i would assume the same for this hotel. go for a hotel nearest the center. btw, the ritz is upscale on piazza republica but we didn't much like it despite perhaps the best location. save your feet, go central. assuming you want to visit a lot of churches and museums, use the ponte vecchio as a reference point.

I will only comment on the two five star properties I have personally stayed in, - those being the Grand Hotel Villa Medici, and Villa la Vedetta, - the latter being an exquisite villa with only 18 rooms. I stayed thre fronting a luxury tour where we took over ten rooms, and were treated exceptionally well.

hi, you mentioned the grand hotel villa medici. I am considering staying there. Is it far away from the main attractions and good restaurants? Also, is it in a good neighborhood? thanks

Villa Medici was the residence of the influential Medici family, and sits in central Florence, yet within its own garden. I was there with a group of 18 a few years ago. It was a private tour I did, with members of an Italian American family. We were well taken care of, to say the least, - although an organized tour, all nine couples were treated like individuals (tour director lingo). Granted, my group were not exactly normal tourists per se.

In other words, I highly recommend it. You can Google it and find out the fascinating history.
