Travellers' Choice
Located in the heart of the historic center of Florence, our luxurious 4-star boutique hotel is housed in the sixteenth-century Palazzo degli Angeli, well-known as the home of intellectuals. Renovations led by designer Alex Meitlis involved the use of authentic materials such as pietra serena and Tuscan marble, along with contemporary furniture, to leave the Florentine soul of the building intact. The sixteenth-century charm of the origins and the faithfully preserved stone walls blend with a modern design, the brightly colored palettes give the hotel a unique and inimitable style. The rooms and common areas are characterized by high quality prints and masterpieces by international talents: a true compendium of contemporary art, in which you will immerse yourself in every moment of your day in Florence!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Within 5 minutes walk of Uffizi, 10 (at most) of Ponte Vecchio and Duomo, location is great for day trips with a break in the heat. 15 minute walk to Santa Maria Novella and train station for longer day trips. Room was very comfortable and very large by European standards. Staff were superb in all parts of the hotel. Restaurant was sophisticated and rooftop setting was beautiful day and night. Highly recommended!

We just spent 4 days with our 2 teenagers and definitely enjoyed this boutique hotel placed at the heart of Florence. All main monuments and sites to visit are closed to the hotel on foot , which makes the place ideal for Florence visiting. Moreover, the hotel itself is a charming cocoon very stylish. Rooms are large and so comfortable, breakfast tasty while the terrace view is amazing. Bar and restaurant seemed a little too selective at least for a family so that it was not our preferred place. No issue as Florence is full of affordable restaurants. Cherry on the cake, you just park the car at hotel and they will take care of it. Bref, we fully enjoyed our stay at Calimala hotel.

This place was amazing! Beautiful building, Easy check-in, we arrived before check-in and they held our bags and placed them in our room while we went out and explored some till check-in time. About a 10 minute walk from the train station, very central location. Short walk to many museums and churches, and still walkable to Palazzo Pitti and Santo Spirto area (where we ate dinner twice). Didn't try their breakfast, but did have an aperitivo at Angel rooftop, great quality food and drinks/view!They provide two Nespresso pods daily (free) in your room, great for an afternoon pick me up. Our room faced the main busy street, I am a light sleeper so I was a little nervous about sounds coming from the busy road. With earplugs, any late night sounds could not be heard and I slept great. Without ear plugs, you may slightly hear some street musicians till ~11 pm and trucks in the am. But, windows do block out most of the sound! AC WAS FANTASTIC, great AC is hard to come by in Italy. Best AC of the whole trip, our room got so cold. Only Con: Shower water gets everywhere in the bathroom due to the open concept, but you can just place towels down. Last time we were in Florence we stayed at the St. Regis (on points) and this place, to be honest, is almost on their level. Would totally stay here again next time we are in Florence!

Everything about our stay was amazing! Both rooms were beautiful and the staff was amazing! Definitely make a reservation for the rooftop restaurant and/or bar, Angels. The view is spectacular and there is a nice breeze even in August. The location was close to everything. We will most definitely be returning to Hotel Calimala!

Fantastic hotel in central Florence in a converted historical palazzo. From the moment we arrive we knew we were somewhere special. The staff were fantastic, friendly and always said hello as we came and went through our stay. The room was spacious and bright with fantastic decor, an amazingly comfy bed and a big, bright bathroom - and a great shower! The triple glazed windows ensured we slept well. It was blistering hot 36’ in Florence so the aircon was appreciated. The rooftop breakfasts were such a surprise, with a great selection and more friendly staff. There is a small yet functional gym on site too. Highly recommended!

I stayed here for a total of 10 nights in July and couldn’t have asked for a better place. The hotel staff were awesome - very accommodating, helpful and friendly. They have a great rooftop with an amazing breakfast buffet and dinner service. Couldn’t have asked for a better location - very close to all the major attractions. I highly recommend and would definitely come back!
