Hotel Palazzo Dal Borgo Aprile is a family-run hotel in a Renaissance building. Rooms are decorated in traditional Florentine style with canopy beds and rich upholstery, and street-side rooms on the upper floors offer fantastic views over the rooftops of central Florence. Despite the age of the building -- it was built in 1480 -- bathrooms are functional and have large bathtubs. Hotel perks include a lovely terrace in the back of the hotel, free breakfast in the charming bar, and free Wi-Fi. Room keys attached to large red tassels are a memorable touch.
Walking distance from attractions in central Florence
Hotel Palazzo Dal Borgo Aprile offers an advantageous location from which to explore Florence: It's a nine-minute walk from the Duomo and within a 15-minute walk of most other popular sights.
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.
