Located in the heart of Florence near the San Lorenzo Central Market, Glance Hotel is housed in a building designed by renowned architect Italo Gamberini in the early 1950s.
The name Glance refers to the attention to detail that makes the building so special. On each floor, space is given over to an iconic reworking of one of Florence’s most famous Renaissance sculptures.
Details from Michelangelo’s David, Giambologna’s Rape of the Sabines, Ammannati’s Neptune, and Baccio Bandinelli’s Hercules and Cacus are therefore reproduced on entire walls, as the main themes of a narrative which is contemporary while also paying tribute to Florence’s artistic and historical heritage.
Our meticulous customer care can be seen in our impeccable service, the comfort of the rooms and the design details…touches of class that are easy to spot at first glance.
Our large heated pool, measuring 12 x 3 metres, sits atop the building. Come and take a romantic and refreshing dip – a real treat for the body, the mind and the eyes. The pool is open to our guests from 15th May to 15th October, 7 days a week, from 10am to 8 pm.
Large outdoor patio with a garden: the perfect spot for welcome drinks, aperitifs and informal meetings surrounded by aromatic plants and fragrant flowers. You can also enjoy a relaxing breakfast out on the patio.
After a peaceful night’s sleep in a supremely comfortable room and a reinvigorating soak in the Glance Hotel Florence’s extra-large showers, all that’s left to set you up for the day is a delicious breakfast.
