Florence is known for its art, architecture and shopping -- and at the Hotel De La Ville, you'll stay on "the city's most expensive shopping strip", Via Tournabuoni, where "fashion designers parade" (Lonely Planet). The hotel is surrounded by Italian fashion houses' flagship stores, as well as many Renaissance tourist attractions.
The hotel is in the city centre, a 5-minute walk from either Basilica of Santa Maria Novella or the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (the Duomo) -- the latter is an iconic landmark in the city, with its graceful campanile (bell tower) and pink-, white- and green-marble façade. For dedicated art and art-history lovers, the world-famous Uffizi Gallery, with its treasure trove of Renaissance paintings and sculptures, is a must-see; it is less than a 10-minute walk away.
The hotel's entrance and lobby is richly decorated with lots of marble, gold furnishings and mirrored walls to create an airy, elegant atmosphere -- there are also large cream-coloured chaise longues throughout the public areas. The hotel's Lobby Bar has stylish orange deep-back sofas, and the hotel operates a happy hour between 6-7pm, where guests can help themselves to free hot and cold appetisers, pastries and desserts along with their drinks.
Classic and Superior Rooms feature an understated yet elegant decoration, with cream and pastel-pink walls and soft furnishings, and dark wooden furniture. Some of the rooms are quite small, but those at the front of the hotel look directly out on to the traditionally Florentine Santi Michele e Gaetano Baroque church. The suites -- all individually named after famous Renaissance artists -- are larger and include a sofa and armchairs in addition to a double or twin beds; some have two bedrooms over split levels. All rooms have free Wi-Fi.
