I stayed in the deluxe balcony room which is a great option, located on the 5th floor of the hotel with a large terrace overlooking the classic and luxurious landscape of Via Tornabuoni. This contemporary room is immaculately designed and well equipped with high-quality pampering accessories, air conditioning and heating settings with Egyptian cotton linens, modern art-deco bathroom with a rain shower.
I had a coffee with the hotels Co-owner and General Manager, Ido Gelber and asked him:
What inspired Hotel Milu?
IG: Milu came with the idea to create something different. A new type of hospitality and luxury. A place that will make the guest feel at home with some extra pampering from our team. I feel that together as a dedicated team we have achieved that.
What makes the hotel different from the competition in Florence?
IG: The atmosphere, which is something our guests regularly comment on.
What hotels inspire you?

What should every guest of Hotel Milu do when they are in Florence?
