Gran Hotel Villa Medici Firenze

Written by Aksel Ritenis


In the heart of Florence just a few steps away from the historic centre, the river Arno and the most elegant boutiques, is the Grand Hotel Villa Medici housed in an 18th century historic palace once a monastery dedicated to St Anne sul Prato in the west side of the centre of Florence.

Transformed in a 5* hotel deluxe, the Grand Hotel Villa Medici, still retains the elegance and tradition of the time together with modern technology and efficiency. A perfect balance is reached between the sumptuous halls of the patrician palace and the new “Jockey Bar” in a contemporary style, now exclusive meeting point in the heart of the city.

The position of the Grand Hotel Villa Medici is ideal for those who wish to be immersed in quiet and comfort: the hotel is in fact the only one to offer a lush garden with swimming pool right in the historic centre, so near to all the prestigious boutiques, a few steps from the river walks and all the most important monuments.

Inside, the “Jockey Bar” distinguishes itself for its contemporary style and the welcoming and refined atmosphere it offers, animated every day by the sweet notes of live music. A modern corner inside a palace rich of history where guests can enjoy a break whilst sipping on a few cocktails mixed by the barman.
