Welcome to the "new"
Grand Hotel Minerva

The best boutique hotel & best urban resort in Florence

Welcome to the newly refurbished Grand Hotel Minerva, superior first class, 4-star hotel located in Florence's historic city center .
We have refurbished our 100-room boutique hotel with the ambition of being the best Urban Resort Hotel in Florence.

The best because many of our rooms — all warm, inviting, and furnished in contemporary style — afford peerless views like that of the church and square of Santa Maria Novella and Florence's major historic buildings and monuments. Best, because you will be pampered by excellent, attentive service, provided with dedication and passion by our well-trained, helpful staff who will always greet you with a sincere smile.

Urban because we are right in the historic center of Florence in the completely renovated and pedestrianized Piazza Santa Maria Novella, brimming with vibrant restaurants and cafés and featuring a lovely new rose garden. Our perfect location is a short walk from all of Florence's main tourist attractions  including Piazza del Duomo and its glorious cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza della Repubblica, the iconic David of Michelangelo, the Uffizi museum, Ponte Vecchio and Florence’s most eminent luxury shopping street, Via Tornabuoni. Other locations in walking distance include Palazzo degli Affari, the Firenze Fiera Centro Congressi, and the Fortezza Da Basso.

Resort because staying with us means finding an oasis in the hustle and bustle of the city. You will be able to spend an entire day here, either doing something somewhere, or simply nothing everywhere. On the sixth floor is our scenic terrace with a sweeping view of Florence, a roof swimming pool and a pool-bar where – from May to September        — you can swim, sunbathe, lounge, refresh, revive, and enjoy a snack. Plus, we have a fitness center with a large whirlpool and two restaurants, one of which is outdoors in the square, with a view of the façade of the church of Santa Maria Novella.
Enjoy the luxury of choosing the room that best meets your needs in a single click: Rooms and Suites, Family Solutions or one of our Unique Rooms, whose features and amenities go far above and beyond any standardization, true "one-of-a-kind" options.
The architect Piera Benelli designed the common spaces and rooms of the Grand Hotel Minerva, attentive to every single detail, and even designing all of its furniture and many accessories.
She kept true to the legacy of great architects and artists, the likes of Carlo Scarpa, Edoardo Detti, and Emilio Greco who had been part of making our historic hotel an icon of contemporary architecture in the past.
