Review Summary



Bottom Line

The Grand Hotel Adriatico is a value hotel, and feels like one. Standard rooms are small and, well, pink (pink walls, pink printed comforters), while the spacious suites are a nausea-inducing explosion of horribly busy and mismatched prints (they must be seen to be believed). The common areas such as the lobby and bar fare much better with generic, understated decor. There is a tiny, slightly outdated fitness center (any fitness center is a rarity in Florence) and a small courtyard garden, but the hotel's biggest attribute is its location.

On a busier thoroughfare about a block from the river, within walking distance to popular sights

Map of Grand Hotel Adriatico

The Grand Hotel Adritiaco is located on a busy street just a block from the Arno River, offering a quiet locale close to many of the city's main draws. Everything from upscale boutiques to popular public squares is within walking distance.

Florence is extremely pedestrian-friendly, and is one of Italy's most beautiful cities -- it's more compact, and less gritty, than Rome. The Duomo is the most iconic sight here, but other popular attractions include Michelangelo's "David" at the Galleria dell'Accademia, the works of Botticelli and da Vinci at the Uffizi, and the Ponte Vecchio bridge, which dates back to the 1300s. The Piazza della Signora is a popular tourist hub, and many hotels are located near it.
