Set in an elegant 18th-century building, Villa Royal features a garden, car park, and swimming pool less than 0.6 mi from Florence cathedral.

This splendid Florentine villa was built in 1700. It was a noble family residence up until 1956 when it was converted into a hotel. It is set in a green neighborhood of Florence, next to the Fortezza da Basso exhibition center and its park.

Each guest room at Villa Royal is air conditioned. The rooms and common areas are all tastefully decorated with period furnishings.

This hotel guarantees a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and an attentive service. The swimming pool is great for a refreshing dip after a day sightseeing around Florence.

The car park and swimming pool are both available at an additional cost.

Both Palazzo dei Congressi conference center and Santa Maria Novella Train Station are 0.6 mi away.

This is our guests' favorite part of Florence, according to independent reviews.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.0 for a two-person trip.

Villa Royal has been welcoming guests since Dec 28, 2004
