Travellers' Choice
Located in the heart of the historic center of Florence, our luxurious 4-star boutique hotel is housed in the sixteenth-century Palazzo degli Angeli, well-known as the home of intellectuals. Renovations led by designer Alex Meitlis involved the use of authentic materials such as pietra serena and Tuscan marble, along with contemporary furniture, to leave the Florentine soul of the building intact. The sixteenth-century charm of the origins and the faithfully preserved stone walls blend with a modern design, the brightly colored palettes give the hotel a unique and inimitable style. The rooms and common areas are characterized by high quality prints and masterpieces by international talents: a true compendium of contemporary art, in which you will immerse yourself in every moment of your day in Florence!

My wife and I recently stayed at Hotel Calimala for a short city break. We had a great spacious/modern room on 4th floor. Breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace overlooking the city and the food was excellent. There is also a rooftop bar for drinks in the early evening which is a must! Overall we were impressed by the quality of the hotel and the friendliness of all the staff we met during our stay.

Wonderful stay at Hotel Calimala! The location is superb.. right in the center of it all! The room was clean, spacious (even for Florence!), bathroom was great with excellent amenities, and there were robes/slippers. Another pro is that their AC is GREAT! We had drinks and an app at their rooftop bar, recommend making a reservation! They also scheduled a doctor to come to our room and administer our required Covid tests (for flying to the USA). Wonderful staff & service!! The only thing to be aware of is that it is relatively noisy at night- this is not the hotels fault at all! Simply the location of the hotel. We didn’t mind the noise! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

In almost every hotel you stay in, there's always some little thing wrong with it. Maybe the curtains bleed a little too much light, or the bed squeaks, or the air conditioner is just a little too loud - but not Hotel Calimala. I can think of very, very, few hotels that were quite as perfect as our 3 rooms at Hotel Calimala, and all members of our party commented on just how remarkably perfect it was. It was very, very, strange to find a hotel that I really just couldn't find any fault with. I guess the breakfast buffet was a little expensive, but who cares, really? The location, of course, speaks for itself. Centrally located and easy walking distance to all major attractions. Staff were impeccably professional, friendly, and helpful. Absolutely fantastic hotel.

Lovely Hotel with a friendly staff. Great location. The only part that was annoying is that we booked and pated for a twin room but were informed that there are none available and got a double. Breakfast was very nice and versitile. I recommend paying for that as well.

Dear Katri, thank you for your feedback. We're glad that you had a great time at Hotel Calimala, thank you for complimenting our spaces and our breakfast. Our Guests' feedback is always appreciated as it gives us a chance to improve our service, and hopefully clarify some aspects if needed: the room category you reserved, the Superior, only has double beds, and it is impossible for us to change the bedding in those rooms. Upon arrival, we offered the choice to upgrade to a Deluxe Twin room, the only category that has 2 single beds, and you declined. We are sorry for this misunderstanding, especially if it made you enjoy your experience a little bit less. Looking forward to have you back soon. Best, Guest Relations Manager

Staff were very helpful and had great recommendations. Very clean and updated room. The main thing that I liked was that it seemed to be in the middle of everything that I wanted to see and do. The reason I picked this hotel were the reviews and I can say that they were true.

The hotel is so beautifully decorated and luxurious! I loved the style and layout of the room. Such a wonderful stay with friendly staff at reception 24/7 and quick to assist with any needs. The bed was so comfortable and the shower was excellent. A beautiful location for breakfast as well with lots of yummy options available. The hotel is located on a great shopping street in the city centre of Florence - so convenient to walk everywhere!

The hotel was extremely clean and location was excellent to all the things we like i.e. tourist areas, numerous shops and restaurants and just around the corner from the Duomo and Uffizi. We did not include the breakfast buffet though we ate there twice out of convenience. There was not a large selection at the buffet. There are many local American breakfasts within walking distance.

Great city views from rooftop. Excellent room, location, breakfast and efficient and friendly staff. Had a minor issue with the floor seal on the shower. TV was not working .. but did not bother us. We mentioned at checkout that they might want to fix the TV. Very apologetic and a day later forwarded us a discount for the inconvenience! Overall great experience. Would definitely recommend

It is located in the heart of the city. The rooms and hotel is clean and the staff are super friendly from the reception up to the rooftop. We had a beautiful view toward the Palazzo Vecchio. I would suggest you also get some breakfast at the hotel, the rooftop restaurant is beautiful and it has such a nice vibe. This is the place to stay in Florence. Loved it!
