Firenze, the heart of Tuscany, has the perfect location for you to stay with Duomo in sight. Add perfect hospitality to make for a favorite stay. I highly recommend lodging at Palazzo Ruspoli. This bed and breakfast seems more like a small inn. Help with train and rental car transportation saved me grief more than once. While on our one... More

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for the weekend in June 2013. The hotel is only a few metres from Florence's famous Duomo and a few blocks from all the major sites, the train and bus station and the shopping district. We arrived after the normal check-in hours, so had to check in at the sister hotel a... More

We stayed on wonderful spacious room, beautifully decorated, the beds were good. Very clean room and big bathroom. It has a great location in the center of Florence just a couple steps from the Duomo. Wonderful view. We had free WiFi and goodly breakfast. The perfect place to stay in Florence. This is a 15th century feel of the room... More

The hotel is located in a classic building and located close to the duomo and 15 min walk to the main train station, and close to everything else too. The room was big, and although the shower was a bit small, but it was acceptable though. The breakfast was a bit disappointing though with limited selection of food. The customer... More

Great location, the best part of the Palazzo Ruspoli! To start, the bedroom is very large which is nice but the bathroom/shower is awful. We had a problem with the bed as the mattress was caving in but they were helpful and changed the frame for us which we appreciated. Being a Canadian, we found the staff to be very... More

This was the first hotel we stayed at on our journey through Italy. At first we struggled to find the hotel as it is only accessible through a large wooden door which is locked when reception is closed. The hotel was small and clean. Our room was very large and had large windows that looked right out at the Duomo... More

In hindsight I guess we should have known something was not right when we arrived in our room and all the windows were open with the a/c on in the middle of summer! The room is big by European standards and the location could not be better. Unfortunately the Sewer gas smell coming from the bathroom ruined this stay. The... More

I've stayed here twice and have not been disappointed. First visit was with my eleven year old niece and we really loved everything about the hotel. As all of the other reviewers mentioned, the location is ideal. One can literally open the window and see the Duomo across the street. You can almost reach out and touch it. The rooms... More

I have never stayed in a place with such an amazing location. I felt like the entire city of Florence was literally out my window. The Duomo was just steps away. The 15th century feel of the room details while still having a modern bathroom was also a huge plus. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Florence

Palazzo Ruspoli was the perfect place to stay in Florence, only a few metres from the Duomo we couldn't have found a better location. Our room was very spacious, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean with views of the Duomo from our window, we just loved it. The continental buffet breakfast was a bit basic compared to other places we stayed... More
