Hotel Details


Hotel Description

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 Abduction of a Sabine Woman, 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. The hotel offers multi-functional areas including a rooftop pool with breathtaking views of the Florence skyline, stylish rooms and a lounge bar with relaxation area, garden and free WiFi.
