A palace that made Florence's History
The palace of Hotel Cosimo de' Medici was house and property of Fratelli Alinari; founded in Florence in 1852, Alinari is the oldest firm in the world working in the field of photography. Once returned home, you can tell your family and friends to have slept in one of the birthplaces of modern visual arts.
The palace preserves the immense Alinari owned fund of 3.500.000 photographs, collected in the Alinari Archives (where you can find some unique photos of the ancient Florence), besides the printing office and showroom.
...a unique blend of tradition, style and modernity
Hotel Cosimo de' Medici's neighborhood is one of the most lively and pictoresque part of Florence; the perfect starting point to easily discover, walking at steady pace, Florence's extraordinary artistic heritage and visit Tuscany by train or bus.
The Santa Maria Novella station, built in the mid eighties, is a worldwide celebrated architectural fusion between classic and modern style; the same harmonic contrast you can find in the refined ambiences of Hotel Cosimo de' Medici.
Strategically situated near the main train central station (Firenze Santa Maria Novella) and only a walking distance from the historical center and shopping area, placed on a street plenty of good restaurants, pizza houses and coffee houses, mini-markets and shops.
The hotel offers comfortable and very well cleaned rooms, equiped with bathroom, shower, LCD TV, frigo bar, free WiFi access and a good breakfast-buffet in the morning at moderate prices.

A Classic Style...
The "patinate" walls of the common areas are made with the same ancient technique of the elegant halls of Palazzo Vecchio, while the classic rooms of the first floor offer enchanting Florentine furniture.
The internal court of the palace with its central gazebo is the ideal place to have a glass of wine during summer months and relax before an unforgettable night out in Florence.
