    Villa Cora
    Florence
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1182 reviewsTripAdvisor (1182)
    Free WiFi

    Even though Villa Cora is a bit removed from the center of Florence (about 2 miles south), recent travelers loved its setting amid gardens and greenery. (They also appreciated the free shuttle service into town.) This boutique property houses just 45 rooms and suites, spread throughout a main villa and two additional buildings. Accommodations vary in type, but all include antique furnishings, Carrara marble bathrooms and views of the surrounding gardens and hills of Florence. Some rooms also have balconies. Outside of their rooms, visitors will find a variety of features, such as a spa with a hammam (Turkish bath), sauna and gym, and an outdoor pool surrounded by vibrant gardens. There are ample places to grab a meal and a drink on-site, whether you prefer to lounge on the rooftop and take in the views with a flute of Champagne or sit down for a full meal indoors or on the patio (depending on the time of year). What's more, the hotel can arrange a cooking class for burgeoning chefs young and old to learn the basics and try their hands at "haute cuisine." As a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    Portrait Firenze
    Florence
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 693 reviewsTripAdvisor (693)
    Free WiFi

    Known for its unparalleled bespoke service, the 37-room Portrait Firenze caters to guests' needs by adding personal touches in the rooms and crafting individualized itineraries. Past guests said the prearrival questionnaire was so detailed that the temperature in the suite was set to the correct day and night preference. That attention to detail can also be found in all rooms, designed by renowned Florentine architect Michele Bönan. Warm woods and soft grays decorate the rooms, and standard amenities include cashmere throws, marble bathrooms and mini iPads that are free to use during your stay. Plus, many suites boast riverside views of the Ponte Vecchio. The Portrait Firenze, owned by the Ferragamo family, also houses the Borgo San Jacopo, a Michelin-starred restaurant that serves contemporary Italian cuisine, as well as Caffè dell'Oro, The Fusion Bar & Restaurant, the Picteau Lounge Bar and the La Terrazza Rooftop Bar. Additionally, the property is home to the White Iris Beauty SPA by Comfort Zone, a full-service spa adorned in natural Tuscan wood and stone. Though several recent guests insisted on requesting a room with a view to justify the high price tag, most agreed that the hotel's top-notch service alone was worth it. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    J.K. Place Firenze
    Florence
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 714 reviewsTripAdvisor (714)
    Free WiFi

    Situated alongside the Piazza Santa Maria Novella near the Duomo and the Battistero, the J.K. Place Firenze is as popular with tourists as it is with locals given its convenient location and swanky design. The boutique hotel's J.K. Lounge is a hot spot to mingle over an aperitif or enjoy a meal and martinis. After dinner, head downstairs to the lounge's Michele Bönan-designed white room, which features dramatic chromatic uplighting. When it comes time to rest, guests will be pleased to find that standard rooms include amenities like four-poster canopy beds, free Wi-Fi access, walk-in showers, complimentary minibars and LED TVs. Upgraded suites boast living areas, king-size beds, crystal chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the red-tiled roofs of Florence. However, several recent visitors said that the J.K. Classic rooms, the smallest accommodations available at the J.K. Place Firenze, felt a bit cramped. But, many noted that the hotel felt more like a stay at a luxurious home and appreciated the attentive service and staff who went out of their way to remember guests' personal preferences and names.
