Four Star Hotel That Won't Cost an Arm and a Leg

Quality Location and Property at a Budget Price

History lives at the Grand Hotel Cavour, which resides in a building that dates back to 1280. After thorough renovations, the hotel seamlessly combines the aura of an 800 year old building with one boasting modern amenities. The crowning glory of the hotel is its rooftop terrace with the American Bar, which has stunning views of the Duomo, the Bargello, Palazzo Vecchio, the Basilica of Santa Croce, and the nearby hills of Fiesole and Piazzale Michelangelo. All of these locations are within walking distance of the hotel, making for effortless sightseeing.

Explore Local History Without Going Far

The hotel is just minutes from many additional historic sites. Fans of Dante Alighiheri's work can visit the House Museum of Dante, a twentieth century reconstruction of the medieval home. The Bargello Palace, within walking distance of the hotel, is home to art masterpieces created by famous Italian artists throughout the centuries. It's housed in a building that was once a palace, then a barracks, then a prison, and finally a museum. Explore the nearby Duomo to see architecture that was groundbreaking in its time, along with its stained glass windows and Renaissance interior.

Comfortable Rooms with Quality Furnishings

Rooms range in size from economy to junior suite. All rooms are furnished with high-end furniture and are decorated with quality materials. Single rooms are for one guest only, while economy and standard rooms can accommodate two guests. Deluxe and superior rooms, along with junior suites, are available for larger parties. Bathrooms are equipped with showers only. All rooms come with free wireless Internet access, LCD TVs with satellite connections, desks, minibars, and in-room safes.

Bottom Line Review

The Grand Hotel Cavour's amenities are modern and comfortable. Most rooms are reasonably sized, and bathrooms are outfitted with quality towels and linens. Keep in mind that the hotel is located on a busy street, and street noise or cathedral bells may pose a problem for particularly light sleepers. The breakfast buffet has continental dishes, and an on-site restaurant provides quality cuisine for those who eat in. The hotel staff makes it a point to accommodate the needs of guests by assisting with rooms, concierge services, and satisfying requests to ensure a pleasant and memorable stay.
