A symbol of Florentine hospitality, since1903 Grand Hotel Baglioni has played a leading role in historic and high society events, providing accommodation within its nineteenth century walls for rulers, heads of state, artists, intellectuals and travelers from around the world.
Its imposing mass reaches out towards the sky of Florence standing above the roofs of the centre and looking out on the lovely dome of the Cathedral and Giotto's Campanile.
Grand Hotel Baglioni preserves the charm and elegance typical of the Florentine tradition but is also equipped with all the most modern comforts, creating a perfect balance between maintaining tradition and continuously improving its services.
The building, former residence to the Carrega Bertolini Princes, features vast, impressive spaces: top quality materials like wood and pietra serena dominate the halls, corridors and stairways, windows still preserve the original glass mounted in lead frames and the very high ceilings are decorated with traditional wooden beams. There are numerous works of art in the hotel including frescos, paintings, statues and an interesting exclusive permanent photo exhibit which uses old and contemporary images to tell one hundred years of Florence's history.
