Situated in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, in a strategic position for the station and the historic centre, the Garibaldi Blu is an innovative boutique design hotel in an historic building that once hosted Giuseppe Garibaldi, as the plaque outside indicates. The hotel opened December 5 2014.
United by the fashion and young philosophy of the Hotel Rosso 23, physically is joined to the latter by an internal connection, with large common areas and services of a four star hotel that introduce a new innovative format "Two in one" in the world of hospitality: two hotels, two different styles together under the same roof.
It is a hotel with two souls: contemporary design features and the latest technological comforts in an authentically historic and artistic framework, with original 19th-century frescoes and vaulted ceilings in typically Florentine style. The large lobby is the heart of the hotel and is a light-filled space with high vaulted ceilings and large windows that welcomes visitors into a winter garden characterized by large palm trees made from salvaged industrial materials. The reception area has large vintage dressers and a frescoed ceiling.
