Hotel Description

What isn’t Hotel Cellai? Unlike many hotels in the heart of Florence, its not located in a palazzo or a centuries-old villa. It doesn’t come with opulent suites and centuries of family traditions. In short, it doesn’t have that ostentatious “wow” factor — at least not in comparison to some of the city’s classic old hotels. Cellai, rather, is a subtle, understated boutique hotel, one with contemporary comforts and an old soul.

Sure, it has charm, with stone archways and terra-cotta floors, antique furniture and oil paintings, a reading room with a fireplace. But it’s humbler in scale. In both style and spirit, it has more in common with the old-fashioned inns of yesteryear, the sort of place where aristocratic young travelers would stay on their grand tours across Europe. It’s comfortable and elegant, certainly, but practical, located in the center of things, within easy walking distance of the major churches and museums. Leave the spacious villas for guests who want to rest: the assumption at Cellai Hotel is that you’re here to see the town. They even provide free bicycles for precisely that purpose.

Not that you won’t enjoy coming back to the hotel after admiring the David and feasting on ravioli with fresh truffles. Guest rooms are cozy, but they have everything you’ll need, with wi-fi, flatscreen TVs, soundproof windows, and a choice between shower or tub. Some have four-poster beds and wood-beamed ceilings. But at the Cellai, you’ll likely be hanging out downstairs. There are several lounges, a library with a charming honesty bar, and a terrace with views over Florence’s famous skyline. Sunsets are lovely here, as is breakfast the following morning — served by candlelight in a winter garden–style space with classical music playing in the background, it’s enough to make you feel like you’re really on vacation, and your daily cappuccino is suddenly a special occasion.
