Excellent luxury hotel. Good for sightseeing and close to the city center. Awesome vibe. Great pool.

Welcome to the Plaza Hotel Lucchesi Florence...since 1860 synonymous with quality hospitality in Florence. The hotel is located on the right banks of the Arno river, with a marvelous view and southern exposure, right in the heart of the ancient city, across from Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato al Monte, a few steps away from the church of Santa Croce, the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery and a short distance from the Duomo (Cathedral), as well as the Accademia where the celebrated David by Michelangelo is kept. Mentioned for over 50 years in the prestigious Michelin Guide, the Plaza Hotel Lucchesi is listed among the finest hotels in Florence in the category Grand Comfort for 2005 and 2006.

Magnificently renovated in 2001, the hotel, which has an availability of 87 rooms and 10 Duplex Suites, is unique to Florence with its spacious, comfortable, elegant lobby and the wonderful panoramic views that can be seen from many rooms. Among those who, in the past, chose to stay in our 4 star hotel, we can mention such important personalities as Domenico Modugno, Marcello Mastroianni or François Mitterand and even now, thanks to continuous renewal, attention to detail and the warm friendliness of our whole staff, this hotel continues to be the choice of many famous people.

In addition to being an ideal departure point for visits to the historic and artistic treasures of Florence and Tuscany, the Plaza Hotel Lucchesi is also located in the immediate vicinity of a number of world famous gourmet choices such as the Enoteca Pinchiorri (three stars in the Michelin guide), the restaurant Cibreo, the famous ice cream shop of Vivoli, or pastry shops like Rivoire and Dolci e Dolcezze. The hotel is also very close to the only Aveda Concept Salon in Florence, the "Contrasto" salon. A few kilometers from the hotel, sports lovers can practice their favorite activities like golf (at the Circolo del Golf dell'Ugolino), horseback riding and tennis. The hotel is also close to the Tropos gym, with indoor pool, Turkish bath and sauna.
