    Hi the hotel was in a great location. However the rooms were not as shown on the website. While we were given a upgrade we found it to be not to the star rating you would expect. The food and drinks were expensive, so we found alternative venues. We cut our stay short and found alternative accommodation at a better price.

    A tricky element of an overseas trip is renegotiating travel plans in a foreign country. We were ever so grateful that such a dilemma was met by the staff of the Grand Hotel Minerva on the Piazza Maria Novella in Florence. We are ever grateful for the careful assistance that the front desk offered us in this task. They made constant calls and conferred with us making the necessary changes so easily. So, we can offer a very high recommendation to this excellent hotel for its wonderful service and style, also includes a level of professional care for which are very thankful.

    Don’t use this hotel if u want to have a good rest
    I am a gold member, they upgraded but when I am get into the room, it was superb small, I don’t even have a space to put my luggage. If they didn’t upgrade the room, What kinda room do they want to give initially? No space at all? And the curtains has something like dove stools.. so disgusting. I did ask for parking earlier but they didn’t response, when I get there, they asked to use garage. Very bad... all inconveniences are all mine.
