Guests who choose the Hotel Loggiato dei Serviti choose the privilege of staying in one of the historic residences in Florence in the oldest and most authentic part of the city.
The hotel is in Piazza della Santissima Annunziata, one of the most-loved by the Florentines, ancient religious and charity site that has kept its austere and spiritual charm over the centuries.
The square is distinguished by the Spedale degli Innocenti, Renaissance architectural masterpiece by Brunelleschi, outstanding Florentine architect who created a colonnade, eternal example of harmony and balance. The Loggiato dei Serviti, which houses the Hotel Loggiato dei Serviti, facing and mirroring the proportions of the Spedale, was built at the beginning of the sixteenth century by Antonio da Sangallo the Elder, another Florentine master architect.
The square is closed by the Santissima Annunziata church, chapel adorned with valuable Florentine masterpieces and a superior example of architecture dedicated to the Christian faith. Initiated by Michelozzo and completed by Leon Battista Alberti, the church preserves frescoes and paintings by the greatest Mannerism painters including Pontormo, Rosso Fiorentino and Andrea del Sarto in uniquely enchanting harmonious rooms.
The Hotel Loggiato dei Serviti is one of the historic residences in Florence to be conveniently located to Florence's world famous museums and monuments: the San Marco Museum, with the entrancing frescoes by Beato Angelico is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel as is the Galleria dell'Accademia which houses Michelangelo's extraordinary David; the Cathedral and Baptistry of San Giovanni are less than 10 minutes away by foot while the Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio are just a 15 minute walk from the hotel (for guests who prefer to go by bus, the stop is in Piazza San Marco, 5 minutes from the Hotel Loggiato dei Serviti).
