Some complaints of homeless people in the Piazza della Santissima Annunziata
This 16th-century property features a distinguished facade -- and an impressive history to match. Together with the famed Ospedale degli Innocenti building, it forms one of Florence's most stunning Renaissance-era architectural complexes. Beautiful arches and columns make for an impressive exterior and the feeling of grandeur continues inside, with wood-beamed ceilings and parquet floors throughout. Rooms aren't quite luxurious, but do feature antique furnishings, flat-screen TVs, and air-conditioning. The small, plain bathrooms are a bit of a letdown. The hotel's location on the Piazza della Santissima Annunziata puts it close to many tourist sights, but some guests may feel uneasy about the homeless people who linger in this popular square.
Right on the Piazza della Santissima Annunziata and next to the Galleria dell'Academia
The Hotel Loggiato Dei Serviti is right on the Piazza della Santissima Annunziata, which is a prime spot for tourists. The location is right next to the Galleria dell'Academia (home to Michelangelo's "David,"), but also puts the Duomo, Santa Maria Novella, Piazza de Signoria, and several other attractions within walking distance. Although it is close to all the action, it is removed enough to allow for restful sleep. Some guests, however, have complained about the homeless people lingering in the popular square.
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.
