"Hidden away on the second floor of a historic building with a view of the Duomo and around the corner from the Galleria dell 'Accademia… the location cannot be beaten.
The rooms are great with high quality bedding and modern inclusions"

Staying at Arte was the difference between a good trip and a fabulous trip! The entire staff was so accommodating, helpful, and gracious-they really made us feel at home! Wonderful suggestions for shopping, eating, and sightseeing were always at the ready and all we had to do was mention something for it to be done. The rooms are super comfortable, clean and the breakfast buffet was outstanding.
All in all, amazing!

I have traveled extensively and this Hotel would be my number one pick.
From the moment you arrive you are treated as a member of the hotel family with welcome beverage of your choice in an Italian Art deco environment .
The staff are beyond excellent from the wonderful owner Sarah and the hosts Diane , Julia and Fanny and the cleaning staff go out of their way to assist. Sarah has taken her Hotel knowledge and turned this space into everything you could want in a boutique Hotel . Included phone , drinks , breakfast ,chocolate truffles in the room .
Location is perfect 5 min from the main attractions . Excellent tips on shopping restaurants and tours . It was a perfect stay in Florence . Would recommend as a must stay , Thank you
We can't say enough about this amazing property.
You will love with the renovated property; an elegant mix of original paintings on the ceilings with modern touches. From the delicious breakfast in the morning to the evening cocktails and snacks, you will be comfortable and refreshed all day. The owners and staff couldn't be more friendly, helpful and accommodating and the location is ideal.
You will feel like you are staying with a friend at their elegant home with all the comfort and privacy of a small hotel. Make your stay in Florence a memorable one by staying at this property.

Great experience, excellent service, beautiful design, high food quality, convenient location.
What really makes the difference is the staff, specially Diana and Giulia who always were willing to exceed expectations. The owner philosophy is customer oriented, which will guarantee their continue success.

We had not stayed here before but it was highly rated on TripAdvisor We could not have been more pleased, the staff was outstanding, the hotel location was perfect, two blocks from the Duomo, and we could see the from our room's window.
We would definitely stay here again, and will highly recommend it to our traveling friends OUTSTANDING HOTEL!!!!
+ Facilities - In Jun/2019 when my husband and I stayed in Arte Boutique, the hotel was only 2 months old and everything was brand new! The room is very comfortable, with high quality matress, linen, shower and towels. There is also good room in the closets and in the room to store your luggage.
+ Staff - Sara, the owner, gave us a warm welcome to Firenze. She was always around and has a very helpful staff working with her. They will go out of their way to support their guests (they called restaurants to make reservations for us, gave us a lot of tips and even stored some cheese and salami we had bought in their fridge) :) It made a big difference in our stay in Firenze.
+ Breakfast - Delicious breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice, a variety of italian cheese and salami, pastries, yogurt, fruits! And a beautiful room!
+ Location - the hotel is a 10min walk from the train station and 3min from the Duomo (you can actually see it from the window!). Despite the great location, it is very silent (it is a residential building that has become a hotel - so reception is in the seconde floor and not in the street level).
We've stayed in other hotels like this during this trip and it seems to be something very common in Italy.
The most unique hotel we have been ...and we live in Dubai-place with a lot of wooow hotels.
The hospitality ,the decoration of theroom ,the treatment of the guest -exceptional,amazing.
Every room has different interior ,but all are beautiful and special.
I think our was the best-with huge balcony from where you can see the top of Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral,beautiful ceiling,stylish and very comfortable bed.....just everything is top.
The breakfast was everything you can imagine and very.very delicios and fresh.They even keep some snacks 24 hours ,so in case you are hungry in the middle of the night you can have form sweet to sour.Owner Sara is adorable,helpful , most of the time there...and you can even call her in case you need her.
I have never witnessed such a hospitality.
Thank you Sara for making us feel special.
Also we like to thank Fani-the receptionist for giving us so much information,making us dinner reservation,for being such a sweet and very professional girl.
The best thing is that you can feel that this people are not pretending -they just want you to enjoy their place and city.
Overall we felt special from the room that we had to the way the stuff treated us..... this is what makes you go back and we will definitely go back to Arte'Boutique hotel.
Arte Boutique Hotel, Florence Our stay was just perfect This is a new hotel with beautiful rooms with a stunning view of the Duomo The service was just exceptional.
Diana and Juliana at the front desk went out of their way to ensure that every little need of ours was met and that we were comfortable.
One night Diana organised a special evening for us on the terrace of the hotel with drinks so that we could have a private viewing of the San Giovanni festival fireworks display. It was a magical evening with the special touch and hospitality of Diana.
There were many complimentary things that added to the warmth of the place - free snacks, water, netflix, apperitivo and more.
The owners of the hotel were always around to greet us and ensure our stay was perfect.
I would highly recommend the Arte Boutique Hotel to any traveller to Florence who is looking for an exceptional experience.
We booked for a family of 5. The suite was large with 2 very large comfortable beds. We were alittle unsure about booking this hotel due to a low reviews, but it was the best accomodation we have stayed in so far during our trip in Italy. From the moment we arrived till the time we left the level of service and attention to detail was exceptional. Being a small hotel, the service was above and beyond what we were expecting. The hotel is newly renovated and in impeccable condition. The hotel was in a central location, easy to walk about the city as well as being quiet at night sleeping. Would definently book again at our next stay and would highly recommend.
On an 18 day family vacation to Europe staying in multiple cities this was hands down the best place we stayed. A Boutique hotel that understands what hospitality means...Sara and her staff were amazing and treated us like family planning out our days making dinner reservations etc. A true 10 just blocks from the heart of it all in a quiet building...we will be back
Quite, safe ,homey feeling , cozy and comfortable , polite and very kind staff , generous in every way, on your way in or out you're offered free bottles of water , coffee and juice , jars of cookies and little chocolates on the reception, snacks in the breakfast room all day long , if you enter the breakfast room late they would keep everything until you're done, they even ask if any other family member is still coming.
At the day of check out they said some nice words to my mother and gave her a present..... you will feel the real meaning of a guest when you stay at Arte Boutique Hotel .
The location is the best in Florence, near all the monuments, shopping streets, pharmacies, supermarkets cafes restaurants even fast food, near the bus and train station .
And if you need a taxi the hotel calls for one in few minutes.
The hotel is in a historical building, on the second floor but very easy to reach, there's a clear sign with the hotels name on the building's entrance, you just need to ring the bell then use the elevator to go to the second floor, to your right side is the hotel's entrance.
After checking in you'll have the code to open the building's door and your key to open the hotels door , you'll feel at home and safe.
Everything above our expectations, the room was very comfortable especially the bed, very clean and spacious, the location it's just perfect, it's like 5 minutes walking distance to the Duomo, the breakfast it's amazing, fresh juice and fruits, nice variety of breads, cheese and hams. The staff was amazing, very kind and friendly committed to the welfare of the guests. We just felt like in home during the time we spend there. Highly recommended, you will never regretted.
The staff are super friendly and accommodating. The decor and finishings are beautifully curated and put together throughout the property.
The location is perfect, close to all attractions. Breakfast was excellent, a lot of choices. We can't wait to return!!!
My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the Arte with our 5 year old daughter recently.
We were not sure what to expect as the hotel was extremely new and had only a few reviews, but we were thrilled when we arrived and were greeted by Sarah ( the owner who had just taken over the hotel days before our checkin) and her amazing husband and manager Diana.
The hotel occupies two of the upper floors of the historic building which is a few minutes walk for the basilica! There is and elevator so no struggling with luggage. The reception and rooms are so well designed and appointed with every luxury amenity we could ask for. They leave truffles in the room which we had to keep hiding from our daughter.
We had a wonderful experience getting to know the staff and the owners who had just bought the business from the developers only a week prior.
The breakfasts were the best we had on our entire trip, they prepared a full spread of assorted pastries, meats, eggs, fresh juices, yoghurts etc....too much to list, so worth paying for the breakfast as you won't get that kind of value anywhere else.
Book with confidence know that Sarah and here husband are running this hotel hands on and will make sure that you have all of you wants and needs taken care of
El desayuno muy bueno y completo y la habitación nos encantó.
El trato del personal fabuloso, muy atentos, en especial Sara que es española y nos facilitó en todo momento información de la ciudad y ayuda para organizar nuestra visita.
En todo momento tienen en la cafetería algo para picar y te preparan café si se lo pides sin coste adicional, todo un detalle. Repetiremos seguro, realmente para mí ha sido un hotel superior a las estrellas que tiene.
THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST HOTELS THAT I HAVE STAYED IN EUROPE SO FAR!
The hotel definitely needs 5-stars in my opinion. The staff was more then amazing, the building is very renovated and sooooo close to everywhere.
We walked all the time. Breakfast was amazing and they even offered a discount for the breakfast.
Wi-Fi, room cleanliness, room service, free coffee, tea and water all gets 10/10 from us!
Also, they offered an amazing wine in the small but very cute terrace for free. Thank you so much Arte.
It was a pleasure
