My husband and I stayed 4 nights here and we were thrilled to be here. It is exactly as described and the staff were so so nice. A special mention to the staff in the breakfast room. It is a little out of town but that was what we wanted and we walked to the attractions of Florence easily. It... More

My wife and I stayed for five nights at the San Gallo Palace in November 2014. The hotel is located a short bus or taxi ride from many of the city's attractions and the city center is offers an enjoyable walk to the Duomo and other attractions. The hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast was... More

My wife and I stayed three days this hotel in November. While not located in the center of Florence, it is within walking distance of the main tourist sites. A block away from the hotel is a stop for a local bus (C1) which does a circle tour of downtown Florence. Just buy tickets at the tobacco shop next to... More

Leaving today but have enjoyed three day stay in this lovely hotel. Staff are helpful and friendly. Rooms and bathrooms are spotless. Plenty to choose from for breakfast and having spent our last day walking miles we opted to try the small bar for food which was beautifully presented. Hotel within 15/20 minute easy walk to all the major tourist... More

The hotel is near our offices so we stay here, but not very close to the sites in Florence. To me, it's very European, hard beds, bad TV, a small breakfast in the morning, and the typical European showers. On the better side, the hotel is clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and the small bar has some food items... More

We and our family stayed three nights in October. The hotel was in a good location, convenient to public transportation and restaurants. It was in walking distance of most of the major attractions. The rooms were a good size, very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was very good, and the service of all staff was wonderful!

I wasn't very impressed during my visit and I don't consider myself a picky traveler. I visited three hotels in Italy and this hotel was my least favorite. Let's start off with what I appreciated about the hotel: 1. We stayed in a standard room and enjoyed the spacious bathroom. I loved that the water was able to get really... More

A very nice hotel with clean rooms and very friendly staff. About 10 minutes walk to San Lorenzo market. Spacious parking nearby. Good breakfast. Perseus, meat restaurant around the corner. A must to do.

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, but to be honest they were the highlight. The room was ok, clean, but a little shabby (pen on the walls and door frame, lots of chips and scuffs, tatty bedspread) and the wall joining the next room was paper thin and next to their bathroom, I heard noises I...

We have just returned from an enjoyable 4 night stay at the San Gallo palace. The hotel is a good 20 min walk from the bus station, and also similar distance to the main attractions.this was no surprise to us , as we had researched the hotel before booking( unlike some previous reviewers!) The hotel was very clean and comfortable,... More
