Vacation Time Passes Slowly at Hotel L'Orologio

L'Orologio is Italian for clock or watch, which sets the theme for the hotel's interior within a Renaissance-era home. This lush setting lends the appearance of an upscale property, unlike the nearby Hotel Perseo. Located right off the Piazza di Santa Maria Novella, the hotel is located near public transportation options that include busses and trains at the Santa Maria Novella Station. The hotel is also surrounded by historical sites within easy walking distance. At the hotel, Bar L'O is ideal for a drink, and nearby restaurants offer convenient places to eat.

Historical Sites Located Minutes Away

The hotel is located in the old city section of Florence and is within mere blocks of many historical sites. The Duomo, or Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, along with Santa Maria Novella Basilica and Museum, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzao Ruccelai, and more, are just minutes away. The Medici Chapels are 400 meters away from the hotel itself, making for a quick walk to see a fascinating piece of history.

Nearby restaurants include L'Osteria Di Giovannia, Il Latini, Ristorante Buca Mario, Trattoria Mario, and Trattoria Sostanza. Food options range from traditional Italian home cooking to fine dining. After a meal, return to the hotel and take advantage of the sauna to relax.

Spacious Rooms With Modern Touches

Room sizes start with suites and go all the way up in size to superior. The superior suites have the option of a city view if so desired. All rooms are spacious, with the suites comprised of two rooms along with a bathroom. Duplex rooms are two-story suites with a living room and offer gorgeous city views of sites such as the Santa Maria Novella Square and the Duomo. All rooms come with two multiple line telephones, tea and coffee makers, a flat-screen TV, a safe, and WiFi. Guests are supplied with terry bath towels, slippers and bathrobes.

The Bottom Line

The hotel has modern decor and amenities that are designed to provide complete comfort for guests. Mattresses are soft, and bedding is luxurious. Bathrooms are equipped with full-sized bathtubs, and everything is finished in marble. Staff are attentive and responsive to the needs of guests. Hotel L'Orologio's location can't be beat, with the train station a five-minute walk away and the airport a 20-minute train ride away.

Expert Reviews
Hotel L'Orologio is a two-minute walk away, and yet such is the compact geography of central Florence that you're in one of the city's most charming, historic, and tranquil piazzas.
The owner of this quietly understated, elegant hotel has a real passion for watches, which is why he chose to name his hotel after them (and why you will see them in many places).
This luxurious property, part of the Why The Best chain, is central to many of the city’s attractions, especially the Santa Maria Novella church.
