    All good. The hotel is in a very good condition and the swimming on the roof is impressive. We had a free upgrade and a nice 2 room room for 3 people.

    We both loved the contemporary stylish rooms that the Minerva has to offer as well as spending time in the lovely rooftop pool at the end of the day overlooking the city. The staff were very friendly, helpful and it felt they all worked well as a team to make your stay special. The Minerva is one of the best hotels i have stayed in - thankyou x

    Nothing - everything was fantastic

    The Grand Hotel Minerva is a clean and upscale hotel that is centrally located near the famous tourist sites in Florence. The rooftop terrace offers stunning views of the city 24 hours a day. I definitely intend to stay here during my next visit to Florence. Since my wife and I were traveling with our two teenage children, the hotel arranged for us to stay in two connecting rooms - one double and two singles. The hotel also offered convenient valet parking (28 Euro for small vehicles, 40 Euro for large vehicles).
