We only stated here one night but it was a great place to stay. It is located right in the market and at first I was worried about it being loud at night but it was not. The room we had overlooked the square and it was a beautiful view and a clean comfortable room with very nice ensuing bath.... More

Very clean, friendly, safe and centrally located hostel. We stayed on the top floor and it was quiet. Air con was only put on in the afternoon but it was fine because you have to leave your room for cleaning during 11-2. Was really impressed with how helpful staff were for tours, where to eat and making us feel at... More

First of all, we thought we were staying at Emerald Fields (as this is where we had booked), but upon arrival they told us to go to Emerald Palace instead - in hindsight this was fine by us. Emerald Palace is very central and opens out straight into the market, and less than a 5 minute walk to the Duomo,... More

Although this is in a great location and our room was massive with a very comfy bed, it is very loud (right in front of the leathery markets), no working aircon in our room, no laundry facilities, is three steep flights of stairs up, with no lift or help from the staff. The staff speak limited English, and the place... More

There are a few steps in the building but i wouldn't worry because staff are very helpful and happy to carry bags. Rooms are really nice with good air conditioners and recently renovated. Very clean. Would highly recommend. Plenty of food and sights to see really close.

Was quite impressed by Emerald Palace. We weren't sure what to expect however had a pleasant surprise throughout our stay. Rooms were very clean - from what I could tell, the upstairs rooms had been refurbished - all decked out with nice decore. Shower was great, steaming hot water. Bathroom was very clean. Wifi worked in the rooms and down... More

My friend and i only stayed for one night, but we had the nicest experience there. The staff were just lovely and the place was really clean and nice decor. It is daunting going up the stairs as the building looks quite shabby, but as soon as u enter the hostel it's lovely. Perfect location close to the train station... More

My new wife and I stayed at the Emerald Palace in Florence as part of our extended honeymoon trip through Italy. Having never been to Florence we booked this accommodation based on the reviews on trip advisor and its proximity to all the sights, and all I can say is that I am really glad we did. I was sceptical... More

Had a mix up of the locations at first (don't trust googlemaps, type in the actual address given) but when the hostel was found, it was excellent. The location is right above the leather market (San Lorenzo) which is wonderful and dangerous for your bank account. They are there all day and night as well which makes it feel much... More
