2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
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!

Booked Hotel Calimala on a whim a day in advance and so glad I did. This hotel exceeded all our expectations and was truly a wonderful stay. The pros: Location - close to everything 20 minutes walk to everywhere in Firenze. Rooftop - Amazing rooftop which guests can access to hang out and watch sunsets. Pro tip buy your own bottle of wine, staff is happy to provide wine glasses and opener. Gym - nice little basic gym, new and clean. Staff - super friendly and accommodating happy to go the extra mile for guests. 24h desk. Room design - Room is not massive but well laid out, cool design exposed brick etc. Cost - got an amazing deal for a hotel of this type not sure if just due to demand at this point but my experience is that it’s well worth what we paid. Cons - nothing truly a great experience. This will be our go to hotel in Firenze moving forward.

I was originally booked into Hotel Milu but because during these COVID times the hotel closed for the remainder of the season, they booked me into Hotel Calimala. This hotel has been opened for about 12 months and I can't say one bad thing about it and therefore gave it a 5 star rating. * Location = 5 Amazing (in the heart of Florence with all retail stores around, less than 1 minute walk to the dome, and restaurants) Check In = 5. Staff were efficient and friendly. Could not be more helpful Rooms and Decor = 5. Every facility available to the guests, with modern, tasteful decor. Bathroom = 5. Wish my bathroom was like that at home Restaurant = 5. Angle Bar on top floor or a restaurant around the corner. No negative comments at all and will be staying at this hotel on all future trips Thanks to the hotel staff for making my quick night stay enjoyable.
