The Anglo American hotel resides in a peaceful spot between the Porta al Prato and Borgo Ognissanti areas of Florence.

It’s close to public transport, although the city’s sights are only a short stroll away via a riverside walk.

The hotel’s 115 rooms have a refined air about them, and are all dressed out in a muted color scheme and hardwood flooring.

The hotel – a former convent – retains an old-world charm, with antique furniture and old Florentine paintings dotted around the place. The bar makes an elegant rest spot, and there’s a lovely patio for the summer months.
