  • Spacious and modern rooms with minibars and flat-screen TVs

  • A bit pricier than similar hotels in its class and location
  • Entrance easy to miss
  • No iPod docks in rooms
  • Fee for breakfast

Bottom Line

This artsy and stylish boutique hotel with 42 spacious and air-conditioned rooms is a short walk to many of Florence’s main attractions. It offers guests use of the adjoining fitness center and spa, with a sauna, Turkish bath and a whirlpool -- a rarity for Florence hotels. Similarly trendy hotels in the area may offer a slightly better value, but not the same access to amenities.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Centrally located, artsy property with attached spa

Firenze Number Nine certainly plays off the city’s artistic heritage. The trendy lobby, with a creatively arched ceiling, plush chairs and a fireplace, is filled with sculpture and hanging art. The rooms are similarly chic. Located around the corner from the Medici Chapels, the hotel is a perfect spot for someone looking to both explore the city and to unwind in the sauna or with a spa treatment. There is also an on-site restaurant that employs graduates and students from a local culinary school.

 Location

In a pedestrian-only area close to major attractions

The hotel's understated entrance on a narrow side street is easy to miss, but the location is extremely central. The hotel is around the corner from the Medici chapels at the Basilica of San Lorenzo, a five-minute walk to the Florence Cathedral, better known as the Duomo, and a 10-minute walk to the Uffizi Gallery and the Ponte Vecchio.

 Rooms

Spacious and chic rooms, some with balconies

The 42 air-conditioned rooms are spacious and attractive, with parquet floors and neutral color schemes (light brown walls, headboards covered in white fabric, and pops of brightness in the bedding and chairs). There are flat-screen TVs and tea kettles, and some packages include free first-round access to the minibar. Bathrooms have bidets, large stall showers with modern fixtures, and spacious countertops, some with double sinks. Some suites have a small balcony overlooking the surrounding red-tile roofs. The penthouse has a large living area on the bottom floor and a bedroom upstairs.

 Features

Access to a fitness center, spa, and gourmet restaurant

One of the main amenities the hotel offers is access to the attached fitness club and Klab spa, which has saunas, a Turkish bath, and a large whirlpool. Spa treatments can be purchased for an extra fee. The hotel’s restaurant, La Prova del Nove, is staffed with graduates and students of Florence’s Saffi Catering Institute. It is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and serves dishes that are a modern take on traditional Tuscan cuisine.

 Bottom Line

This artsy and stylish boutique hotel with 42 spacious and air-conditioned rooms is a short walk to many of Florence’s main attractions. It offers guests use of the adjoining fitness center and spa, with a sauna, Turkish bath and a whirlpool -- a rarity for Florence hotels. Similarly trendy hotels in the area may offer a slightly better value, but not the same access to amenities.
