Glance Hotel

Modern and sophisticated, the Glance Hotel is a chic property designed by Italian architect Italo Gamberini. Just like the name suggests, it offers extensive views across the entire city with a strategic location near San Lorenzo Central Market.

The name is actually inspired by the hotel’s unique designs and attention to detail. On every floor, you will discover a reworking of one of the city’s famous sculptures.

This, along with its contemporary accommodation and rooftop swimming pool, is what make the Glance Hotel a popular place to stay in Florence.

Before you step outside, take some time to admire the hotel’s innovative interiors with contemporary replicas of Michelangelo’s David and Baccio Bendinelli’s Hercules and Cacus.

With plenty of space and natural light, each room is designed with comfort in mind. Enjoy a good night’s sleep with sleek, minimalist furnishings, hypoallergenic wooden flooring, soundproofed windows, and an Espresso coffee machine for those early mornings.

The Double and Comfort rooms act as a cozy base in the city, while the Superior and Deluxe rooms offer a little more space to kick back.

If you intend to spend more time relaxing in your room, opt for the Junior Suite, which comes with a separate living room and bedroom.

Add some romance to your stay with rose petals, prosecco, and a welcome gift as part of the hotel’s exclusive ‘Feeling the Love’ package.

Wake up to a mouthwatering breakfast of freshly baked goods, fruit, cereal, fruit juices, and more. During the day, take some time out of sightseeing and unwind in the hotel’s Urban Garden, where you can sit in the sun and read a book.

Perhaps the biggest drawing card has to be the hotel’s exclusive rooftop swimming pool. Perfect for warm sunny days, this heated swimming pool offers spectacular city views beside a trendy bar.

Located on the hotel’s sixth floor, it is the perfect place to recharge after a busy day of exploring the city.

Open between May and October; it also features comfy sun loungers and outdoor furniture where you can kick back with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.
