Within walking distance of the main sights of De Medici's city is Hotel Palazzo Castri 1874. The hotel's name refers to the year of an Andreotti fresco you can admire on the ceiling in the reception area. The boutique hotel is as refined as it is picobello, with modern and bright rooms. A definite bonus is the refreshing indoor garden where it smells of lemon and magnolia. Truly divine!

The hotel is open all year round.
Check-in is possible from 2 pm. Check-out is before 11 am.
From 265 euros.
