About Garibaldi Blu

Garibaldi Blu offers a strategic location in Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Once home to an ancient palace in the glorious age of grace and beauty, the hotel now combines modern touches with features like high-vaulted ceilings and authentic 18th-century frescos.

Beautifully decorated rooms and suites mix elements of old and new that work perfectly together. Modern-day amenities such as Egyptian cotton sheets and marble bathrooms are standard, with deluxe rooms adding stunning plaza views.

Those arriving by car can take advantage of the paid undercover parking. The chic industrial-style lobby offers a 24-hour reception and concierge, and those travelling for business can host up to 35 guests in the spacious conference venues.

A hearty continental and American spread is served in the breakfast room each morning, where organic and gluten-free dishes are included.

Garibaldi Blu is surrounded by attractions like the Modern Art Museum and well-known streets such as Via de’ Tornabuoni, where branded stores and top fashions are plentiful.

Positive Reviews

Breakfast is amazing

There's a bit of everything on offer for breakfast. Most guests think it's quite an amazing start to the day with the wide selection of fruits, breads, cheeses and so much more. The breakfast staff are also considered to be friendly, attentive and most hospitable.

Perfectly located for tourists

The train station is just a few minutes from the hotel, making getting to attractions that are further afield really easy. Travellers who have come to enjoy the enormous number of world-class tourist destinations in the immediate vicinity, find that they are surrounded by so many. From churches and museums, to the Santa Maria Novella square right in front of the hotel, means getting to the main sights in Florence really easy from here.

Professional and hospitable staff

The friendly and reliable staff are ready to welcome visitors from the moment they enter the chic lobby. Guests appreciate the fact that they are prepared with all the maps and tours that are available, and pleased that they will go the extra mile and book the tours too.

Negative Reviews

Super heroes are a distraction

The hotel's authentic charm and character is one of its strengths, but visitors are a bit puzzled by the action figures on each floor. They think it detracts from the image the hotel is trying to create.

Noisy at night

Guests who face the Plaza find that this vibrant area can get rather loud, especially at night. Those looking for a good night's sleep suggest a room that does not overlook the plaza may be a good idea.
