“Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful stay at the Golden Tower, what a great location. We had a beautifully appointed room and so very clean. We had access to the mini bar, which was great after a busy tourist day. The location was right in the center of town, walkable to most tourist locations and some great places to eat. The breakfast was very good with an array of foods. The staff was very helpful, giving excellent recommendations.

We have just spent 4 nights at the Golden Tower Hotel and Spa in Florence and we could not fault the stay at all. The staff were wonderful and the hotel was perfectly placed for a city break. The rooms were beautifully situated and the suite was great, having two bathrooms was a bonus. We had use of the mini bar and each evening a complimentary glass of sparking wine and nibbles, a lovely touch. The turndown service was impeccable each night.
The little spa was heaven and we relaxed each night before dinner in the steam room, sauna and whirlpool. The massages were lovely and very relaxing.
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and the city of Florence was wonderful and very romantic. Thank you to the staff at the Golden Tower who made our break so special.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite if you can afford it as its a wonderful experience. We stayed on floor 5 which w...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights during our honeymoon in Italy. We absolutely loved it! The central location in the heart of Florence is perfect, just a short walk from everything. The hotel is gorgeous and all of the staff were exceedingly helpful and attended to our every need. They even treated us to a complimentary bottle of champagne to celebrate our recent wedding. I'd recommend opting for a deluxe room, which comes with full access to the mini-bar and spa. The included breakfast buffet was delicious too! The Golden Tower rightfully earned every one of its five stars in this review. We can't wait to come back!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel has a lot to offer. A continental breakfast that was filled with an abundance of food. A welcoming box of cookies, happy hour hors d'oeuvre and Prosecco. The hotel is decorated in a beautiful decor and is well kept up. The staff are very helpful and pleasant. The hotel is centrally located to all the shopping and historic sites.

This was the most amazing hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff were beyond friendly, the hotel was stunning, the location perfect. We took advantage of the spa, and it truly does look just as it shows in photos. You feel transported to some secret, underground relaxation chamber. It's incredible. The rooms are very well appointed, and ladies-the hair dryers include voltage converters for any other tools you might have with you!

Room Tip: Stayed on the 4th floor and didn't hear a single other guest-it was perfect!

This hotel was great and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Everything was wonderful except I wish we had a bathtub instead of just a standup shower since it is a spa hotel. Just one small detail that didn't take away from this lovely hotel and beautiful vacation!

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here for two days at the beginning of a cycling trip and for three days at the end of it. We could not have made a better choice. The accommodations were beautiful, the staff was gracious (Angela at reception and Milena in the dining room were a delight) and the location was perfect. The hotel is located on a side street so it is much quieter than hotels on any of the piazzas. It is also centrally located. We stayed in a Deluxe room and a Tower Deluxe room. Both were sumptuous but the Tower room, aside from being a bit larger, had a huge, gorgeous bathroom with a very large jacuzzi tub.

We visited the spa a couple of times. It was restful, rejuvenating and immaculately clean. The breakfast presentation was lush and Milena's cappuccinos were a perfect way to start the day (as was her smile)!

We'll definitely be returning!
