I stayed here for 3 nights as part of a tour group. I thought that the location was ideal in that is was near enough to walk to the wonderful sights of Florence, yet far enough out to be quiet and relaxed. My room was simple yet a little dated, but clean and prefectly adequate for my requirements. All the... More

We were a bit disappointed with the Palazzo Ricasoli. This hotel is pretty dated (beds, furnishings etc). Our room was a corner unit and very tiny (although as I understood it some of our group had larger rooms so the size varies). The a/c was let's just say not very dependable. Our biggest disappointment was the location. We felt like... More

A really solid 4 star selection, the rooms are spacious and clean, breakfast is sufficient, staff are accommodating, good location with plenty eating options nearby, 20 min walk to the train station, and excellent markets within 10 mins, overall a great stay.

We got in with a cheap deal advertise on Trivago so we probably had a great deal in comparaison with normal price. Staff was helpful. Very well situated, walking distance of any beautiful features of Florence but far enough to get quiet nights! The rooms were clean. The only bad thing about the rooms were the wooded blinds that if... More

Really felt that this hotel should be in Africa, not Italy.... Rooms are big but very plain... And the hotel staff could not fix the AC... front desk could be more friendly and more helpful... would not stay here again simply because there are so many better hotels to explore.

We had a trouble free stay at this hotel the room was just right and the staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant.. the only thing that could be improved is breakfast because there are lots in the hotel things run out fast. We would certainly not hesitate to stay here again.

I have to give this hotel 5 stars. I booked 4 rooms for my family altogether as we were attending a wedding of the son of one of my lifelong friends. For a start, three of the rooms (they were all standard) had a separate kitchenette area with a table and four chairs, a cooker, basin and fridge. The bedrooms... More

Quite disappointed upon entering my room of this hotel and my feelings never changed. Rooms are very spartan and cold, lackluster furnishings. Hard bed, mushy pillows, scratchy sheets, no attention to detail on any of the room appointments whatsoever, very soiled/dirty looking tile floors, walls all scuffed and marked, baseboards covered in paint drippings. US standards, this room is a... More

Everything about Ricasoli was wonderful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There was a it of noise, but there was a group of teenagers whose voices traveled pretty far. The location is okay.. a little far from the main area, but definitely in walking distance. The breakfasts were enjoyable, and the staff was extremely friendly. I would stay here again.

First, a few caveats. I am not, by nature, a nit-picker, but one can only get an impression of the whole by looking at the sum total of the parts. My remarks regarding the room are confined to the older building, the “Residence,” if you will. I did not see the inside of a “Hotel” room. We have just spent... More
