Arrow Hilton Florence Metropole {ITA}

I am planning a trip to Italy next year and just noticed there is a Hilton in Florence ? 1st time I have seen it on the website. Anyone been there before ?

It is new. I haven't been to it. However, it isn't in a great area of town for visiting the central city.

this is quite interesting

This location is a perfect addition to Hilton Propertys in Italy. Especially when the Venice one opens. I did a search and found it on google. They were taking resv but on the hilton website it shows no availability through dec 06. I guess ill call them and see whats up Diamond desk says they are open. quoted me a rate of 280euro for next april. non smoking roms are not avail. I hope they get their pricing together. For that price I can rent a little stone cottage

I looked here

You are correct, it's outside the city center.
......just 15 minutes from the historic heart of Florence...

But parking is not too expensive at the hotel:
Self Parking: 10.00
EU10 -garage parking
I didn't find any pictures of the hotel

What makes you think it's opening in autumn 06? I just did a reservation there for the last week of December and it shows availability.

Hi rwill11, since the title was Florence, I was confused. Apparently the topic switched from Florence to Venice. Thanks for the correction.
