I'm a solo traveller and on a tight budget. The greatest thing about this place is the space. The room i was staying in had a very high ceiling and separate beds, which I enjoyed. The Minus: 1) Morning vendors that make a lot of noise when you're trying to sleep 2) Spotty Internet (But they were working on it).... More

Great place to stay, I was travelling alone and on a budget, this place was great. Friendly staff, clean, good size rooms (wasn't bunks was single beds) which was good. Breakfast was good-- basic but good coffee and an added bonus. Location is excellent - right outside the market and close to the basilicca and other main attractions.

Was quite a nice hostel until I woke up with over 50 bites from bedbugs all over my arms and my face. It is sad though because the rooms are really pretty and the bathroom is clean. The location is amazing!! If you still plan on booking at this hostel, be sure to check the bed where you sleep if... More

Upon arrival at this hostel, we were first met by the 55 steps. Whilst it's unusual to find places in Italy with lifts, it should always be made clear there is none. We were shown to our room by the friendly girl at the front desk, given a map and she kindly circled the locations of the main sites and... More

My sister and I stayed in room 2 (1 double bed) & had a great stay! Emerald palace is super easy to get to from the train (5-10 min walk with bags), right in the middle of a market and a few blocks from the Duomo so great location. Our room had a neat view out onto the market and... More

Upon our arrival here we received no answer at the doorbell downstairs. After 20 minutes someone else thankfully came. The incredibly rude man at reception insisted it was our fault. This rudeness continued through the whole process. This combined with the failure of the wifi anywhere but the lounge made the stay far worse than it should have been at... More

The hostel was situated in an excellent part of town and very easy to get around. However, the beds were a little sketchy and the wifi was non-existent. We were very lucky that we had some good people staying at the hostel otherwise this rating would be a lot worse.

We had to book an emergency stay in Florence for one night and the people at Emerald Palace were very welcoming and resourceful. A friend and I stayed in the doublebed private room which had a nice view of the mercato centrale and very clean and comfortable facilities. I would definitely recommend!

My friends and I stayed at Emerald Palace for 5 nights during a trip to Florence and Rome. The location of Emerald Palace is great for a good price (approx. $30 per person for a private room). We were in walking distance of all of the major attractions of the city and were right across from the Medici Chapels. However,... More

This hostel was wonderful, the people were lovely and so accommodating. We stayed in the orange room over looking the square which was beautiful. I thought this place was good value for money. Breakfast included and served to you every morning. We even managed to leave a necklace behind and the lovely owners posted it back to us in the... More
