Plaza Hotel Lucchesi
My favourite hotel
This is now my fifth stay at this wonderful hotel and it just gets better each time. I'm about to book another for Easter. The quality of the accommodation, the facilities. the service and the spectacular location are second to none. As far as I'm concerned, a visit to Florence always includes staying at Hotel Plaza Lucchesi.

Plaza Hotel Lucchesi
Disappointment not an option
frankly possibly the best location in town if arriving by car. A brilliant hotel with roof top pool perfect for cooling off after a hard days culture tour. Staff could be a little friendlier but then again it was very hot even for them

Florence mini break
Weekend break with my husband. Fantastic service overall. The rooftop bar is a great way to spend a late afternoon in the sunshine. Breakfast was good - lots of choice. Would happily go back.
