Anyone who spends more than the bare minimum sleeping time in an hotel room in Florence simply doesn't get the point. It seems everyone wants to visit the perfectly preserved city centres of renaissance centres like Florence but expect modern buildings with perfection provided for very little money. Well - this lovely little hotel could not be more centrally located.... More

Florence has always been one of the most important and visited town in Italy. Tourists from every part of the world, especially from UNITED STATES, JAPAN, RUSSIA. The hotel is located very close to the railway station and just a little walk from the most famous monuments. The staff is really friendly, rooms comfortable and clean. Breakfast with many cakes...

This hotel was lovely, and very reasonably priced. Staff friendly, helpful and can speak English! Close to the railway station but away from the noisy main road (via Nazionale, don't stay in any of these hotels especially NOT Hotel Sempione) We spent our first night in Florence in the latter and it was awful. Luckily we walked past Palazzo Benci... More

The room was perfect...it was exactly what we needed. It was clean, comfy, location was perfect....the staff was very kind in both English and Italian. In the caos that comes with travelling this was a welcomed stop! Thank you to the crew and management at Palazzo Benci, your sincerity was appreciated.

Perfect location downtown, walking distance of everything and close to train station but beyond the main stress loaded with hotels capturing tourists stepping off the train. The front desk personnel (both the male working the 11-11 shift and the female working the other shift were most helpful with recommendations and maps, and always greeting when arriving or farewell when leaving....

Great location. Very short walk from the train station. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were very nice and the breakfast was good. Lots of restaurants and bars close by. You can walk to whatever you need from this hotel.

After searching for a hotel in Florence for a long time, we came across Palazzo Benci. Their room rates were much less than other hotels for our intended stay, so we were dubious. The hotel and our stay could not have been nicer. The staff was very welcoming and our room was clean and neat. The hotel is located very... More

We stayed in a triple room in Oct 2013. Pros: the location is great and the breakfast was good. Cons: lacking in cleanliness - sheets and blankets were stained, black mold was growing along the edges of the bath tub. Overall, dreary worn and musty. We would not stay here again.

A Nice hotel in the centre of the historic city of Florence I was there on business with other people. the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was good, though a little small. There were some nice public areas. Breakfast was good an ideal base near the station and to explore Florence. Would happily go back again
