“A small gem in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Hotel Palzzo Guadagni is a small gem situated behind an inconspicuous facade in a beautiful palace by a small piazza with a warm local atmosphere and a number of restaurants with good food and reasonable prices. It has modern facilities with a working air-condition and nicely decorated bathrooms and a large loggia facing south with a view over the city and the bustling piazza. We stayed for 7 nights and were impressed by the friendly and helpful staff and an atmosphere where one could feel safe, relaxed and at home. It is a quiet hotel situated only 10 minutes walk from the cultural centre of Florence, and we will certainly return.

Room Tip: No. 9 is next to the loggia

An absolutely terrific neighborhood location! The historic building staffed by very friendly and helpful people is a real find. The location is within walking distance to all the major sites, and if you choose to use the public bus system (easily done), very convenient to the bus stops. There are wonderful restaurants in the immediate neighborhood and a market in the piazza all contributing to feeling like one has truly been in Firenze rather than visiting Florence.
We have been back since our first visit and all remains high quality. The loggia is the perfect place for a glass of wine in the evening. We have stayed in a couple of different rooms and each was spacious with well-equiped, well-lit bathrooms. We will be back.

This hotel is amassing for the price, in fact it is just a great place to stay. The room was to say the least extremely spacious with a great view to the piazza.
Full size bath, shower and very clean. Just out of the hustle and busses but only 5 mins walk to the Ponte Vecchio. Highly recommended. Breakfast is very basic but very fresh.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but see if you can get one with a balcony overlooking the piazza.

Room Tip: Great spot

I've visited Florence many times, once lived there for a year, and feel that I now the city fairly well. Of the many places I've stayed, none has charmed and pleased me more than Hotel Palazzo Guadagni. The hotel is located in a beautiful Renaissance palace overlooking Piazza Santo Spirito, in the Oltrarno section of Florence - a somewhat bohemian area of the city, away from but near the tourist parts of the city. The hotel staff is wonderful - gracious, friendly, and always willng to help their guest in any way possible. The rooms are large, historic, very well appointed and beautiful, many of which have fabulous views of the city (my most recent room there looked out towards the Duomo). There's an exquisite covered terrace that wraps around two sides of the top floor, which is open to all guests for refreshments, socializing, and just watching the evening sky turn golden. The hotel's breakfast room is as bright, light, and cheerful as their food is delicious (although typically simple). I will never stay in another place whenever I visit Florence.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor.

This hotel is a 10-15 minute walk from many of Florence's main attractions. The hotel makes you feel as though you are visiting Florence in the 40's. The room is spacious with beautifully painted high ceilings, the private bathrooms are nice and the breakfast spread is decent. The hotel has a outside balcony with a beautiful view which is great for having a glass of wine and watching the sunset. The only negatives were that my converters that I use in Germany did not fit in the hotel sockets, so my hair products (blow dryer and curling iron) did not work. Also, we stayed in Room 1 (on a Friday and Saturday night) which overlooks the Piazza and it got extremely loud with the people at the bars and restaurants below until 3-4am. However, ear plugs are provided on the bedside table. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Florence and I hope to stay here again when I visit.

Room Tip: If you are noise sensitive and are planning to stay at this hotel during the weekend, ask to not sta...

I have booked this lovely looking hotel for a friend's 70th birthday in early September. I am sure they will enjoy it. I have had to cancel my room because my husband is ill, but will visit another time. I just want to congratulate Martina on the excellent service she has given me over the months that I was looking at this hotel. She speaks and writes very good English and nothing is too much trouble. If the hotel is half as good as she is it will be superb! I look forward to meeting you Martina when I am able to visit Florence next year. I will certainly be staying at the palazzo Guadagni.
