My husband and I stayed for a week in Florence at this hotel. It is very central for visiting the many wonderful sites in this amazing city. We were combining sightseeing with a visit to our son who studies in Florence. The hotel staff were very helpful and accommodating when we had some difficulty with a lost bag. Thankfully we... More

We stayed for 4 nights and we should have shortened our trip to Venice and stayed longer in Florence at this hotel. The staff were the best as the hotel was. We had previously stayed in Barcelona, nice, Venice and now Florence on our way through to Rome. Undoubtably the best, staff were kind and helpful in booking tours and... More

The room was large and comfortable, staff very pleasant, for a city hotel it was very good. But the location is not great. Was not bothered about the walk into the centre there are good cheap coffee places on the way but it is something to consider when you've been walking all day and you got the 15 min walk... More

We stayed at the Sal Gallo Palace Hotel over Christmas of 2014. An absolutely wonderful hotel with huge rooms that could easily accomodate myself, my husband and our teenage daughter. I would say perfect of anyone who is very tall as the ceilings were seriously tall for a hotel. The staff were very courteous and accomodating. There was a lovely... More

Enjoyed a three night stay in a garden room on the ground floor. The staff were excellent and informative from trains, taxis, museum tickets and tours. The hotel itself is an elegant four star establishment. The room was large and airy - the bathroom immense. The breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of foods to appeal to all tastes... More

Really enjoyed my stay here with my boyfriend. The room was immaculate, huge bed, clean, spacious and comfy. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The buffet breakfast runs until late morning which is ideal and there is a lovely bar to enjoy in the evenings. A 15 minute walk from the centre which we loved as it meant we could... More

We were first greeted by a wonderful hotel staff, Saimir. He was a smiling helpful individual assisting us in restaurants, tour locations, directions, and room check in. The hotel had everything ready for us 3 women as we had requested. This is truly a superior 4 star hotel worthy of this rating.

Our group stayed here for four nights and loved the time we spent. The staff was very helpful and accommodating from helping with dinner reservations, calling for taxis and even making us "to go" breakfasts the morning we flew out of Florence at 6:00 a.m. This is a great spot if you want out of the city center but within...

Our daughter is studying in Florence so my son (18), husband and I visited for a week. We chose the San Gallo based on reviews and because they had a suite with a king sized bed and a single in a separate space. The room was very nice and had a balcony. Unfortunately the single was a converted couch with... More
