“Excellent Central Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

We stayed at this property this Spring and found it to be a wonderful choice in central Florence. Just steps away from Piazza della Repubblica and within walking distance of all the major sites in Florence and in the middle of the “shopping” area which my family liked. The service was excellent and attentive. The room, all with a kitchen, was spacious and well appointed. The breakfast, that was included, was excellent. Although not a traditional “hotel” but very close it is an excellent choice for lodging in the heart of Florence. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Go for a suite.

The Palazzo was a wonderful boutique hotel with an excellent location and wonderful staff. The rooms are very large by Italian standards with beautiful furnishings. The bathrooms are large and lovely as well. The location is by far the best for a fine hotel in all of Florence. You are a short walk to almost every site and everything that you would want to do. Other hotels like the Four Seasons, the JK, the St. Regis are all a bit of a walk to most things of interest.

There are only a few reasons I did not give the hotel 5 stars. #1 because after 11 PM there is no one to answer the desk phone that speaks English. That can prove very difficult if you need something. We tried several nights for different reasons and had to give up and do without both times. It was nothing critical, but for 789EU you should be able to get help in your language. #2 Unless you have a terrace be aware that there are no outdoor areas in which to sit. and #3 there is no restaurant so you must go out for food whether you are exhausted from a long day of walking or not. I am the first to say that you should not use room service in Florence but instead should dine out, BUT, with that being said, there are those moments when you are just too tired to go out and it would be nice to have the option of dining in, especially when you have a lovely terrace on which to dine. We were also informed that they could not bring us breakfast on the terrace. If we wanted coffee and tea, they would bring that but we had to go and get our own food for breakfast to take up to the terrace. Again, it would be nice not to have to get completely dressed for breakfast when you have a beautiful terrace on which you could relax in a robe and enjoy the morning.

Other than those points, the Palazzo is wonderful, comfortable and very very quiet. As for room choices, the suites with terraces are the best because you can sit outside.

Dear Guest,

first of all we would like to thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor.
Palazzo Vecchietti as mentioned is centrally located, few steps away from the main sight to visit, a perfect location to discover the city !

We would like to inform you that Palazzo Vecchietti is a Dimora Storica, it is not an Hotel but it is classify as Historical Building.

We would like to apologize if you had problems with the person in charge during the night, unfortunately the night porter was in holidays ,and the person who replaced him did not meet our needs and is no longer part of our staff.

Palazzo Vecchietti does not have any restaurant but there are several restaurants and trattoria near by and all our rooms are equipped with full kitchen or kitchenette.

Regarding the breakfast, we supposed that there was a misunderstanding with the Breakfast staff as usually on request we serve breakfast in the terrace , not just coffee or tea.

We really hope you will have the chance to come and visit us again and please accept our apologies if our services did not meet your expectations.

Hope to welcoming you again in the future and have the chance to enjoy the breakfast in the terrace,

Alessandra Giusfredi

We spent 3 nights at the Palazzo Vecchietti and were extremely happy with our stay there. The service is friendly and first-class in every way; from the welcome glass of prosecco, to the breakfast service to the help with directions and reservations (dinners, museums, etc.).

The room was very spacious, even by US standards. In addition to the bed, walk-in closet, sitting area and spacious bathroom, it also includes a small kitchenette. Excellent air conditioning.

The hotel is located in the heart of Florence's shopping district; walking distance to all major attractions.

Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed for five nights. We had a large luxurious suite with a kitchen behind doors, beautiful designed and very practical. The service is excellent, very friendly people at the reception. Ask them everything about Florence, it is a very good location , near all major things to see. Very clean rooms, enjoy breakfast in the large room, wonderful !

Dear Guest,

thank you for the time you spent to write your experience in our Hotel!
Palazzo Vecchietti is a small property located in the center of Florence, few steps away from main attractions and famous restaurants and trattorias.
As you had the chance to taste it, we just serve breakfast in the morning in our breakfast room located on the third floor or if you prefer you can order a room service.
Kitchenette, Nespresso Coffee machine and large rooms give to our Guest the impression to stay in a Florentine House but with all comforts and modern amenities.
We sincerely hope to have you again at Palazzo Vecchietti
Yours faithfully,

Although Florence is not overly large, we found the Palazzo Vecchietti to be perfectly located. We took to train for Rome to Florence, another great and easy idea, and were at the hotel within minutes. As others have said, the staff is awesome and very attentive.
Rather than stay in a commercial hotel with rather standard rooms, the Palazzo offers so much more. The room is fantastic. From the kitchenette complete with all the fixin's to the spacious baths.
Breakfast was a great start to the day. Fresh fruit, juice, and eggs made to order. The staff is helpful and always willing to assist.
The locations is central to all of Florence. We were here for New Years and there was entertainment steps away from the front door.
We would highly recommend the stay.

We found this Florence address through Lonely planet Magazine publication as a recommended place to stay if money is not your constrain.Don't let their entrance fool you.Its similar to an apartment entrance, but location is so central that most attraction in Florence is only a walk away.Although not cheap,Plazzo Vecchietti gives you all the modern luxury of a star studded hotel but with only 12 rooms with a private touch similar to a luxury apartment living.Service and recognition is top rated.I would recommend this Florence address for any visit to Florence.

Room Tip: High floor with front street view.

We just finished a tour through Italy with a 3 day stop in Florence. Palazzo Vecchietti came highly recommended and it lived up to the hype. It is very non-descript when you first come up on it - just a sign on the door. It has a very low key, tastefully done lobby area. The front desk staff on duty 24 hours could not have been more helpful. It was some of the best concierge service I have experienced and I have stayed in many of the best hotels around the world. They really care and will take care of your every need. We stayed in a 3rd floor suite with a roof terrace. Room was spotless and the location is perfect. It is the perfect escape after a day in the city. Going forward this is the only place we will stay in Florence. It was perfect in every way.
