Best Hotels with Pools in Florence, Italy | 2021
Plaza Hotel Lucchesi
€€€ | 4 Star | Rooftop Pool | Sata Croce
I really like Plaza Hotel Lucchesi for many reasons. First, it has an epic pool on the roof which is great for a hot summer day. It is also simply a nice hotel with classic charms.
The map may make it seems like it is “far” from all the action in Florence, but Florence is simply so small that this is an optical illusion. You can be at the Uffizi Gallery in less than 10 minutes by foot. It is well connected to the entire city reasonably by foot and near some great restaurants. This is why it gets my thumbs up!
Palazzo Castri 1874
€€€€ | 4 Star | Pool & Courtyard | Family Friendly | Near Accademia
Hotels like Palazzo Castri 1874 are a mystery to me. They somehow are in the center of a city but have this expansive outdoor space. Their pool is small but perfect for a central-Florence hotel. This hotels is great for couples, kids, and anyone who wouldn’t mind taking a “dip” after a long day of exploring!
Hotel Croce di Malta
€€ | 4 Star | Rooftop Restaurants | Pool | Family Friendly
Hotel Croce di Malta is a great option for a budget-friendly traveler who wants to get a lot of amenities at a low price. The hotel probably needs some updating, but the price is very low and they have a pool, in the center of Florence, large enough to do laps for exercise enthusiasts.
Definitely a great option for families traveling to Florence who can’t run their kids ragged for an entire day or for budget friendly travelers who like some exercise.
Tours of Chianti & Florence
Grand Hotel Minerva
€€€€ | 4 Star | Rooftop Pool & Bar/Dining
Grand Hotel Minerva is a great option if you want a central location in Florence, a pool, and rooftop dining. All you need in return is a lot of money!
The hotel is a very nice hotel and actually reasonably priced considering how nice it is, all the amenities, and the location. In June you’ll pay over $400/night which puts it in the top tier, but if you have that type of cash to spend then this one literally checks all the boxes.
Torre dei Lari Residenza d’Epoca
€ | Agriturismo | Countryside | Pool | Family Friendly
Torre dei Lari Residenza is another great “outside of Florence” option if you want to a low price and some space for your kids to run around. This is perfect for the people who like to rent a car or are good taking public transport in and out of Florence.
Hotel Torre di Bellosguardo
€€€ | 4 Star | Countryside | Pool | Rooftop Dining
Hotel Torre di Bellosguardo is a great option for an adventurous traveler looking for some green-space. It is definitely not in the “center” of Florence but still has a Florence address.
Florence goes from city to countryside much faster than a city like Rome which is one of the things I like about it. If you have kids and want to have a memorable and slightly different experience than most, consider Bellosguardo or another “outside of Florence” style hotel.
Hotel Ginori al Duomo
€€| 4 Star | Clean & Contemporary | Pool | Family Friendly
For what you get, Hotel Ginori al Duomo is an incredible deal. It is centrally located, rooms are nice, it has a pool and he place is very characteristic. For under $200/night in June, I would book this hotel in a heartbeat.
Great for families who want to upgrade to a larger room with the kids so everyone can spread out.
