Description

The Grand Hotel Baglioni has been a Florentine institution since 1903, offering guests a comfortable base at the heart of the city, as well as fantastic views overlooking the Duomo and Giotto's Campanile from the panoramic roof terrace.

The Grand Hotel Baglioni is located in the heart of Florence, in the picturesque Piazza dell'Unita Italiana. Housed in a 19th-century building, constructed by Prince Carrega di Lucedio, the Grand Hotel Baglioni has been operating as a hotel since 1903.

With its design, the Grand Hotel Baglioni encapsulates its 100-year-old history, combining traditional Florentine style with contemporary touches. The guest rooms incorporate beautiful hardwood floors and authentic period furnishings to transport guests back to the city's past.

The Grand Hotel Baglioni also benefits from a roof terrace, offering fantastic views across Florence, taking in landmark sights such as the iconic Duomo and its belltower, or Giotto's Campanile. The B-Roof Panoramic Restaurant offers guests the chance to savour traditional Florentine dishes with a modern twist, while enjoying the beautiful views.

During the summer months, the Grand Hotel Baglioni is also home to the American Roof Bar, the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail and soak up the scenery as the sun sets over the city. The hotel's American Bar provides a cosy indoor space outside the summer season, where guests can enjoy drinks and a welcoming atmosphere.
