The Hotel Athenaeum offers a quiet place to stay close to the heart of Florence. The hotel, just north of the Duomo, is a 10-minute walk from the city centre, and bikes are free for guests to borrow.
Set in a former school building, the hotel's bedrooms have a contemporary finish and are well soundproofed. The upgraded Superior Rooms have a double bed, air conditioning, a mini bar and a complimentary fruit basket. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
Breakfast features a buffet of salami, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, fruit salad and more. Later on, you can try traditional Tuscan specialities with a modern twist at Riflessi Restaurant, which uses local and seasonal produce. Choose from dishes such as green lasagne with traditional meat sauce "au gratin" or thinly sliced peppered prosciutto with fried artichokes and stracchino cheese.
There is also a bar and a patio, plus a putting green, a fitness room and a billiards room.
