The staff was wonderful, especially Beatrice. The room was spacious with a high ceiling and view of the street. The breakfast was standard to those offered in other places in Italy, but overall my wife and I had an excellent stay.

Eventual entry and lift to the third floor reveals a reception area and a welcoming receptionist. Accommodation tastefully presented and of decent proportions; breakfast room... More

We spent 5 days at the Palazzo Ruspoli and enjoyed it overall. The staff was polite, courteous and helped us with anything we needed from museum tickets to printing out train schedules. The only *minor* inconveniences were: 1- When we arrived we had to check in via a sister hotel located about 4 blocks away (this can be difficult when... More

Good because we were close to everything but bad because it is always noisy. The rooms weren't anything flash but were clean. There were 2 things we weren't happy with however, firstly our... More

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

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
