This small hotel occupies one floor of an old building. Very well positioned. The rooms are stylishly restored. Friendly owner. Yes, you have to climb stairs but if you let them know you have arrived I am sure they would help. The room was unseasonably hot in October but we were OK with a fan. There is a Spa, not... More

The location of this hotel is amazing. A 2 minute walk to the Duomo, ~5 minutes to the Ufizi in one direction, and ~5 minutes to the Accademia in the other direction. You cannot ask for a more central place to stay. But you are going to need help finding it the first time as it is a typical hidden... More

Rooms= gorgeous and clean! Updated and CLEAN bathrooms. Ceilings and floors are all restored frescos and the rooms have a quaint balcony. It was home away from home and the location was perfect. Near all the major spots in Firenze. We didn't want to leave this place!

The location is great. The staff are warm, helpful & well-informed. The Cerere Suite, with floor to ceiling frescos, is amazing. But it was Marco & Maria on the front desk that made this place really stand out for me ... they kindly couriered my laptop to me after I forgot it in the room when I checked out. They... More

The best thing about this b&b is it's location. Easy to get to everything you want to see- especially the Duomo! Breakfast was okay. Staff are really pleasant. Only thing that was a bit of a disappointing was that our room wasn't ready until after 1. Email said check in at 12. We could have left our bags but we... More

We arrived by car and were told it would be easy to find a space outside the hotel, where the staff would then park car in a garage . Not true! The street is very narrow and traffic horrendous, as its a main road for buses and to the hospital, so parking took us 3 trips around the block. Finding... More

Quirky bed and breakfast on one floor in old palace building, close to Piazza del Duomo and within walking distance to the Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery. Rooms are adequate if slightly spartan - as are the breakfasts.

The best part about Palazzo Galletti is it's wonderful location. Everything was in walking distance. Additionally, our room was very large as was the bath. There were some unpleasant surprises, however. There were 4 flights of stone stairs that we had to climb carrying our luggage. We were told that there is no elevator because of the age of the...

We arrived by train from Pisa and proceeded to walk to find our hotel. Not quite what we had imagined as the piazzo or street it is located in looks a bit grubby and seedy. The plaque on the wall is very small and inconspicuous and once inside the security gates and fencing the direction sign to go up the... More

Well located, this converted palazzo has some outstanding rooms and terrific staff. We stayed here twice and both times we had a huge room complete with 17 th century frescos and trompe d'oeil ceilings. The bathrooms are fortunately from this century, with showers and tubs. Some rooms have a terrace, which is a bonus to the last few smokers out... More
