Overview

Housed in a modernist building from the 1950s, Glance Hotel is the perfect choice if you want to get a taste of modern Florence. Unlike other hotels in Florence, Glance has a refreshingly contemporary vibe, making it a great option for those who prefer modern cleanliness.

This hotel features sleek and clean lines that are a welcome breath of air from the general Florence ostentation. That being said, Florentine elements can still be found in the hotel. Guests can enjoy the floor-to-ceiling photographs showcasing Renaissance sculptures depicting Florence's history and vibe.

Enjoy the monochrome details from Ammanati’s Neptune or Michelangelo’s David, “glancing” into the Florentine culture while you reside in a contemporary building. 

The service at the Glance Hotel is very friendly and warm, with the staff always eager to provide an insight into the city. The rooftop bar is one of the main attractions of the accommodation, along with the 39-foot seasonal pool that overlooks Florence. 

There are 68 rooms in total, all of which have been decorated in a soothing taupe and dive-grey palette. The minimalist furnishing makes it a relaxing place to sleep in, and the pictures on the walls offer a piece of Florentine culture. Enjoy the rainfall shower in your private bathroom before you go to the lounge or the pool area.

Why we love it

The rooftop pool allows you to cool off on a summer day while you get a beautiful view of Florence.

The buffet breakfast offers a wide variety of options, no matter if you are looking for a hot or cold meal.

It has an amazing location, which is right across the road from the central market.

The terrace has a great view of the sunset and Florence, making it the perfect choice to enjoy a cool drink in the evening.

In and around

At the Glance Hotel, there are plenty of activities that you can engage in. The pool bar only opens at 4 PM, so until then, you can spend some time in the downstairs garden or patio. You can stay there during breakfast or lunchtime, soaking in some sunshine and tranquility. Once the bar opens, you can go for an aperitif or some cocktails at the poolside bar, where you can watch the sunset.

Stepping outside, you can find Palazzo Medici Riccardi about 5 minutes away from the hotel, and a 10-minute stroll can take you to Palazzo Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria. You can start with the Mercato Centrale, continue with the Basilica di San Lorenzo, and then visit the other attractions nearby.

If you are in the mood for a fancy dinner, you can pay a visit to La Divina Enoteca, which is popular for its wide selection of Tuscan food. Gastronomia Asia is also nearby, and you may enjoy various culinary options that can entice your senses. For a casual cup of coffee and a nice snack, you can also try Mostodolce.

This place is also popular for its artisan beer, brewed in Tuscany with various flavors. The chestnut honey brew is a top option among locals.
