A rooftop pool and bar with views of Santa Maria Novella church, free Wi-Fi and a gourmet restaurant combine to make the Hotel Grand Minerva an excellent choice for our guests. All 102 rooms in this six-story hotel offer free Wi-Fi, so guests can brag about the hotel's fabulous rooftop view to friends back home. Coffeemakers, minibars, hairdryers, satellite TV and safes are also standard, and select rooms have a view of Santa Maria Novella Square. Guests can relax in the pool or enjoy a drink on the rooftop terrace, which overlooks the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. A complimentary breakfast is offered, and the hotel's restaurant serves Mediterranean and Tuscan cuisine. Wash clothes in the guest laundry, summon 24-hour room service for a midnight snack and ask at the 24-hour front desk for help with museum and tour reservations. Hotel Minerva is a short walk from Santa Maria Novella train station and five minutes from the Duomo. Visit the Accademia di Belle Arti, 10 minutes from the hotel, to see Michelangelo's David, or walk 10 minutes to the Uffizi Gallery. Stroll across the Ponte Vecchio to Boboli Gardens and the Pitti Palace, 15 minutes away. Peretola Airport is four miles west.

Everything was fabulous, don't miss the swimming pool at the roof and the view up there is amazing.
They wouldn't send us an iron to the room and you would have to use their laundry services at an extra cost.

It was clean, stuff were nice and friendly, bed and pillows comfortable.
Room too small and uncomfortable, with a window in the ceiling, which was not described at the time of booking (at least I do not remember). As a result, it was difficult to sleep because of rain dropping directly on this window. Also, I woke up very early because of the light coming directly through this window right into my face. I think this room was a converted closet or something like that. I expected something better for 160 euros per night.

Disappointing
Great rooftop.
The rooms are too small to be comfortable for 2 people and most of all they look like they are designed by Ikea. In short, no value for money.

The service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. Particular mention for Serena on the front desk. Our bedroom was immaculate and bed very comfortable. We had a premium room but this doesn’t come with a view.
Drinks from the bar are quite expensive, about double the cost of drinks from a non hotel bar.

Pleasant
Staff very kind and super professional the location in very centered.
Breakfast is nothing special, coffe is very bad they don’t have anything else but soya milk and if you are lactose intollerante can be an issue to find something to eat. Pool is unavailable till March 31st which was a bit disappointing . Furnitures and design are honestly a bit kitch. Definiteiy doesn’t worth the price we paid
