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

Palazzo Galletti is very conveniently located within easy walking distance of all the major attractions. Although on a busy street and very close to a hospital (ambulances!) it is surprisingly quiet with double-double glazing facing the street. We stayed in Selene which is a nicely appointed suite with a modern, if somewhat narrow bathroom. In contrast to hotels with sinking... More

We stayed for four nights. The room was excellent and very comfortable. The breakfast was not at the same level of the rest services (luck of variety, no good refill). the personnel were very polite and willing to help us at any time. But the highlight of this hotel is it's location !

We arrived for a stay of four nights to be greeted with stairs and no lift, this should be mentioned as, if anyone is not too good at toting a suitcase upstairs, if the receptionist is the one who greeted us is on, you wont get any assistance. We were shown to a very dramatic and charming room with a... More

This hidden gem of a B&B is worth finding if you are visiting Florence. The rooms are well appointed, the baths spacious, the staff accommodating, and centrally located in the old city. Our room overlooked a central courtyard and was very quiet. We were 3 blocks from the Duomo and close to several excellent restaurants frequented by locals, not tourists.... More

We really enjoyed staying here. We arrived early and the lady at the front desk let us check in right away. We really appreciated that! Beautiful building full of charm.The service and hospitality was wonderful. Our room was big and had a huge shower. We slept well each night and enjoyed the great breakfast each day.

We arrived in Florence w/ unknown expectations of our upcoming Euro vacay. After traveling all night w/o sleep we arrived at the B & B at 10 am. The front desk receptionist checked us in and offered to keep our bags while we went around the city for a few hours before we were able to check in at 12... More
