“Spectacular, thanks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I had the best experience ever at this place, I must say that it made me feel at home during my whole stay. The location also could not be better, close to the centre and any other Florentine amenities. Very good place indeed, highly recommended! Congratulations to the owners for their hospitality

In my whole 16 days europe trip, this is the only place that make me feel at home. From the service to the facility, they have been very thoughtful and put their heart into the small detail. Their patient and helpfulness has given us some good memory on our holiday. Location wise is only ok. You need to walk 20minute or you can take bus no. 6 or 12 to nearby the hotel. The breakfast is delicious. Definitely value for money. I would come back again and again. And thanks to tiziana and marta.

Dear Kevin
we are very happy that your stay in Florence was so pleasant and we are pleased that you have enjoyed our delicious breakfast! The Old Town starts just 300 meters from our house, and the main monuments - such as the famous "Ponte Vecchio" are just 10-minute walk from Palagetto ... Certainly the time it takes to arrive depends on how many stops you make along the way, which is rich in beautiful vistas for photos, shops to visit and other beauties of the city to admire !!
The necessary small walk to get to the old town is the price you pay to stay in one of the most beautiful, peaceful and elegant (and safer too) corner of the city.
Best wishes from Florence

We were greeted warmly and made to feel welcome. The hosts were wonderful and very helpful. The house is attractive, well located. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast was average.
Very quiet and safe neighborhood. Would stay here again.

Dear guests of Illinois,
we are very happy that your stay was pleasant to Palagetto GH, you have enjoyed the charm of our house and the area so quiet and peaceful.
We are a little surprised that you found our breakfast just average, because every morning we prepare a big buffet with homemade pastries, ham and cheese, biscuits, several kinds of breads (also home home made fitness bread); on request we scrambled or boiled eggs, and then the good Italian coffee but also american coffee, fruit juices, yoghurt, and every morning a real fresh fruit salad awaits our Guests.
Our breakfast with the famous "cappuccino" prepared from Ruggero are the things most appreciated in more than 140 reviews! If you wanted something different would have been enough to ask ... we would be happy to prepare it for you !
Greetings from Florence
Tiziana

Recently I embarked on my first trip to Italy. It confirmed my belief that I was Italian in another life!! In Firnze, I had the great pleasure of staying at il palagetto. Tiziana, Ruggero and Marta could not have been more welcoming, hospitable or helpful. It is a little jewel box of a home, nestled in the hillside of its charming neighborhood. The rooms of this historic house are charming, everything is spotless and I shall recommend il palagetto to everyone!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Il Palagetto. Marta was our host for 4 days She always went the extra mile to help us with bus routes and tickets, restaurant recommendatons and reservations, and more. She was friendly, respectful and caring. The room was spacious and comfortable. We loved the quietness and quaintness of the property. And the breakfast was wonderful. We hope to return someday.

This is an ideal place to stay if you are arriving by car as we did. Just outside the old city but easy walking distance and really peaceful and quiet. In fact it is much nicer being south of the river and we felt like we got more of a taste of the locals Florence than being stuck in the middle of the tourist area.
We were given so many tips and advice that we didn't need our guidebook any more, and it was all great advice - thanks so much for that! We felt like we got extra special treatment as we were on our honeymoon, so that was lovely too!
The breakfast was delicious, and it felt nice to share that with the other few visitors that were there. Nice lounge area to relax in and access to the kettle to make tea any time - which is a big plus for me in a hotel!
Our room felt a little dark which was a shame as its supposed to be the best one! But it had a lovely bed and felt private.
Overall a lovely place to stay.

Room Tip: I think that the rooms on the North side may be lighter (cheaper too).

Dear Sarah
we are delighted that you and your husband have had a very pleasant stay at the Palagetto on the occasion of your honeymoon, and we are happy that you enjoyed our special surprise (a good bottle of Chianti for a romantic toast) .
We are so sorry that you have found the room Gingko, by far the most beautiful of our Guest House, a little too shady, but it was enough to open the shutters of the two large windows (which you have always kept closed) to enter the sun! In any case, we are delighted that your stay was enjoyable, even if you wanted to penalize us with 4 dots out of 5 for your mistake (the one that you have not opened the windows and enjoyed the beautiful Italian sunshine ).
Best wishes from Florence

Nice guesthouse, a bit outside of Florence but certainly walking distance or a short bus ride. The guesthouse has lots of personality, offers charming rooms, and serves a delicious breakfast every morning. The staff is very helpful.
