I really adore this hotel - my room was specular, very high ceilings, very thoughtfully and generously designed, power shower and giant bath, lots of large fluffy towels, extremely comfortable bed and pillows...no skimping on materials here! It is all very pleasing on the eye....More

About
Description
The ancient Palazzo Ricasoli has now become a historic hotel, Leone Blu. At the Ponte alla Carraia with terrific views on the river Arno and on the medieval Florence. Built in 1474 by will of Rinieri Ricasoli More and ever since it has uninterruptedly belonged to the family. During the Europe Grand Tour period, XIX and XX centuries, it was the Grand Hotel de New York, giving accommodation to important personalities of the art and culture. Located in the heart of the city, less than 10 minutes walking distance from the Santa Maria Novella railway station and two steps away from via della Vigna and only 200 mtrs from via de' Tornabuoni. All the most important places in Florence are walking distance from Leone Blu. Leone Blu offers its salons and nine suites, each one decorated differently, to guests who wish to enjoy a truly authentic Florence, it is a private palace which opens its doors to everyone, it twill thus be accessible at all times : for a small breakfast, coffee, special aperitif, wine-tasting or meeting. This will be an elegant and reserved location open to the public. Less
