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

This place is on the pricier side than what I would have preferred to pay but the hosts are lovely and the room was great! We got a double room, and it was quiet within the hostel. There is also the bonus of breakfast. Very simple - toast and coffee/tea. The room we got was huge! It was quite noisy... More

This place (B&B) was awesome ! We stayed here for four nights in Florence. The rooms are huge, clean and good enough to rest yourself at night after a long day. Bathroom was good and spacious. Lumi the care taker of the B&B is sweet and helpful. They provide really good service to check in and check out. You can... More

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
