We booked this hotel based on Trip advisor reviews and I am delighted to say the San Gallo exceeded our already high expectations. Friendly and informative staff, spacious and spotlessly clean rooms. A good standard of various breakfasts available and a great way to start the day. Only a 20 minute stroll from the Duomo, so close enough to everything... More

What a great place! An easy walk (10 mins) to the main areas for shopping and tourism with a 15 minute walk to Central train station. The hotel itself is great. Friendly staff with great recommendations. Excellent rooms with comforts galore and class to match. Included breakfast was a great way to start the day and the fresh made coffee... More

We just spent 5 weeks in 12 countries in Europe, and liked the San Gallo Palace the best. It was elegant, the crew was very friendly and helpful, and the food was great. We really enjoyed being there.

We visited Florence in August as part of a bigger holiday. Our decision to stay at San Gallo Palace was based largely on trip advisor reviews, with an eye on keeping the cost down, rather than going all-out for luxury. So (despite not having very high hopes) we were pleasantly surprised. We felt that the location was great ... less... More

We stayed here for 4 nights of our honeymoon and the hotel made no real effort to acknowledge this. We were provided a 'garden' view room at the rear of the property which consisted of a view of neighbouring apartments, run down garages and a thin strip of garden below. I think mthis is the best they offer. The room... More

Very nice hotel. I think I would have enjoyed the stay there better if all the restaurants and shops in that area weren't closed for the second half of August. Of course that isn't a fault of the hotel. The rooms were actually quite large and our balcony (313) made for a nice relaxing evening. The morning breakfast was amazing,... More

We stayed here for 6 nights. Our room was very nice and spacious. Our bed was very nice, not too soft, and we slept like we were at home. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. They also recommended nice places to dine or lunch. Breakfast in the hotel was nice and partially traditional. The city center is a 15-20... More
