If you want to just sleepover then this hotel is ok. Unfortunately we stayed for four nights and didn't have a comfortable experience. This hotel is about 25 mins walk to the cathedral but at night you will have to careful returning back because of the homeless people sleeping by the parking lot which is unsafe. Also the bed is...

We stayed at San Gallo Palace hotel for three nights at the start of September. We found all the staff to be welcoming and helpful but Tanya from the restaurant made our stay particularly memorable. She was friendly and helped us with something to eat (we are vegetarian) at well past lunchtime when much of the menu was made up... More

We stayed here for 4 days and loved this hotel! The rooms are large and spacious, the beds comfortable, the room had air con and wifi and a nice bathroom. The hotel is a little further out of the city but only a 15-20 min walk which was pleasant - we happily walked in and out of the city daily.... More

I stayed here in August with my partner and this was honestly one of the cheapest hotels I've stayed in during my Europe trip and one of the best! All the other european hotels I have stayed in dont provided you much for breakfast, abs generally much you pay extra. This hotel includes breakfast and you get a beautiful buffet;... More

This hotel is a 10 to 15 minute walk from the centre of town, or 6 minutes from the fringe of the shopping - restaurant area. There is also a bus stop 100m away for the number 7 for Fiesole. Breakfast is simple with bacon, eggs, sausage plus an array of pastries and cold meats with cheese. We were happy... More

San Gallo was great. The location was good, just outside the city center but still reasonable walking distance. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was extremely friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Like others we also booked this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and it didn't disappoint. Our room on the ground floor was quite large and very clean. All the staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was great with a wide selection on offer; I loved their coffee but my husband thought it was too strong! I smile... More

If I came to Fierence for a short visit San Gallo is slightly off track 20 minutes walk to inner city. I would choose a closer location to Duomo. If you have more days this is your place. The staff is however great and the food and service too. Breakfast in the garden make up for the distance. Clean and... More
