“A very good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

I've stayed at this hotel just one night, but it was worth my while. The rooms are very beautiful and spacious. The lobby seemed a bit to small, but maybe this is just because I've stayed before at Aldrovandi Villa Borghese in Rome.
The hotel's settlement is great. You are a few hundred meters of the most important places in Florence. The breakfast is very good too.
Pay attention to the parking. You are not allowed to park your car anywhere in the old part of the town(only the residents). You have to pay 28 Euros/day to a parking garage and the hotel must declare it to the police.

Chose the Golden Tower based upon the reviews on Trip and very disappointed that I did. Trip is a flawed rating service because of the many different levels of travel experience and the various levels of taste. That's not a shot at Trip, it's just a fact. Five stars to some, vjust "ain't" five stars to others. The Golden Tower is an OK hotel....in my opinion, it's about as far away from 5 stars as I am now sitting from the hotel (I'm in NY). I suppose it's targeted at the young and hip and although I'm not THAT old, too young and too hip are sort of a turnoff to me when staying in a premium hotel. If you like the Soho Grand in Manhatten than you'd probably like this place. If on the other hand you perfer a Ritz Carlton than choose perhaps the Savoy or Four Seasons when staying in Florence. Now for the tip of tips: as another reviewer has stated; there is a LOUD disco across the street......if rest is a factor in choosing a hotel than.....forgetaboutit!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room in the back of the hotel.

Dear James G,
we thank you for your comment even if do not hide our surprise while reading it because we do not have understood where the "critical" is.
Indeed, we believe that the reviews made ​​by our "Qualified Guests", of which 95% excellent / good left not only by "young and hip", have to be taken into consideration because is the result of their life experience and how they interface with "luxury" .
The reviews are important when are constucrtive!
As for the live music in the square we respond to what happen inside the hotel even if we have taken measure against the "bar" outside involving the police in order to check the "decibels".

The hotel is a centrally located in a quiet street, a few minutes walk to the Duomo, Uffizi and all the other main attractions of Florence. - you don't need to bother with a car or public transport, as the city is so accessible. Outstanding friendly service is provided - nothing is too much trouble.

We booked a classic room, which was very quiet, overlooking the internal area. These rooms are smaller than the deluxe ones, and the bathroom has a large shower but no tub. But space is quite adequate, decor very attractive, and the large bed provided a comfortable night's sleep.. Free wi-fi, and tea/ coffee making facility in the room, and a minibar (which was not free, as others had suggested). Excellent buffet breakfast with hot and cold options.

All around the hotel are restaurants catering for every taste, and hotel staff were able to give good advice on the best places to eat. Highly recommended...

From the check in to check out this hotel was five star. The pictures do not do the hotel justice it is truly spectacular. The staff were fantastic, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious, clean and immaculate. The amenities were plentiful and of high quality. The free minibar was appreciated. The jacuzzi in the room was fabulous. The highlight was the buffet breakfast which was the nicest buffet breakfast we have ever had. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The location was perfect so close to everything, safe and with many restaurants etc. I would go back here in a heartbeat. We had free access to the spa however we didn't use it as the room facilities shower, jacuzzi were so great.

Not my first time in Florence, but first at the Golden Tower Hotel & Spa, I LOVED IT!!!!
I've seen and experience many other Hotels, but the Golden Tower has it all, the location allowed you to be in shops, Piazzas, restaurants in no time being in the heart of the city, but feel secluded in the privacy of your suite with "fireplace" , state of the art bathrooms, flat screen TV, automated lights in halls, and closets, healthy and delicious options for breakfasts, is priceless.
The staff takes care of every detail, from the moment you arrive, you feel the concierge service at its best.
I will recommend it to everyone, being confident their experience at the Golden Tower will remain forever in their hearts as it was for me.

We stayed here for a long weekend in November. The hotel is in the heart of Florence, a short walk from many of the main attractions and surrounded by high end shops and lovely restaurants. The hotel itself is quite small and was perfect for us. The deluxe room was well decorated and very comfortable, it felt secluded and there was no noise heard from outside. The restaurant/bar area is also very nice and the food was excellent. The spa is a fantastic addition and feels like a sanctuary, with steam room, sauna, jacuzzi and specialised showers. I recommend having a massage or treatment, which all seemed reasonably priced. The staff were always very helpful and friendly and overall I would highly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Deluxe room was very nice
