Accommodations with Old World Charm

Boutique Family Run Hotel

The base of the Porta Faenza Hotel is an 18th century building built by Florence merchants and was known as the Palazza Pegna until it was converted into a hotel in 1997. The hotel is named after Porta Faenza, an original gate in the 15th century walls that used to stand in roughly the same place. The original structure from the merchant's family was kept in contact during the restoration, which you can see in the old wood beam ceilings and terrazzo tiled floors. Old world charm and personalized excellent service set this hotel apart from its larger competitors.

Quiet Solitude

The hotel is situated in a pedestrian area and offers a quiet reprieve from the busy city streets. Come back after a long day of sightseeing in the busy downtown of Florence and reward yourslef with a fresh made coffee, cappuccino or apéritif in the hotel’s bar and lounge. Although most hotels offer free breakfast, few can compare to the fresh-baked bread straight from the oven with a host of other continental breakfast items. Free wireless Internet is available throughout the hotel and there is an Internet point in the main lobby that is open during certain hours. Make sure to ask the knowledgeable staff any questions you have about your itinerary or sites you may have missed.

Two blocks from the Train Station

This is one of the most convenient hotels if you are arriving by train because it is only two blocks away from the station. This location in the northwest quadrant of downtown provides convenient access to both the business conference center, the train station, and the Duomo. Most attractions are within a 15 minute walk but the city bus system is available for those seeking motorized transport. Taxis are also available either upon request or outside of the train station near the hotel. Less than three blocks away is the San Lorenzo open air market, which is one of the oldest and largest markets in Italy.

Quaint and Modern

You will be charmed by the quaint, original styling and satisfied with the modern amenities most travelers expect today. Satellite TV service, an in-room safe, daily housekeeping, LCD TV, air conditioning, and complimentary toiletries come standard in all rooms.

The Bottom Line

Looking for something a little off the beaten path? Look no further than Porta Faenza Hotel for a unique and welcoming environment, amazing service, and modern amenities.
