“Fabulous hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We have just got back from 5 nights at the Hotel Pendini, staying in their family 2-bedroom suite, and they could not have looked after us better. The location is amazing, the rooms were large and spotless (and very quiet - ours were not overlooking the square) and the staff friendly and helpful. My wheelchair dependent mother-in-law also had a great time, as the facilities were all on one floor and we could use the lift to get her straight out to the sights in minutes. Thank you for a very successful and good value trip. The Normand family.

This is a beautiful hotel; quite nondescript on the outside but upon entering the hotel, I couldn't stop marveling at the beautiful interior - the chandeliers along the corridors, the sitting room and the breakfast room. Lots of little details here & there adds to the old world charm. Located at the left side of the building (when standing in the square & facing the hotel), there are 2 lifts to reach the main hotel lobby. Hard Rock Cafe is on the right side of building. Zara, H&M and other major retailers are just round the corner. All the major sights and river are within walking distance.

We stayed here for 4 nights in a quadruple room facing the square on the 4th floor, 2 adults & 2 teenagers. Lots of space, big closet and spacious bathroom as well. The room was nice, clean and there was a safe! I guess the hotel finally put it in after all the feedback earlier about not having one in the room. The beds were very comfortable and although there was some noise coming from the square, which could be really late into the night, this didn't bother us much. The central location, the view from seeing all the main action during the day more than made up for it. We could just come back to the hotel in the afternoon to drop off our shopping bags, take a rest, look out of the windows at the crowd before heading out again.

From the breakfast room, you could look out to the streets and also part of the Cathedral. Nice view and piped music made breakfast most enjoyable. Breakfast was the usual, pastries, boiled eggs, cereals but I must commend the 2 staff working in the room. They are ever attentive to your needs and from the 2nd morning onwards, they remembered that we liked the cappuccinos made from the kitchen the day before and promptly served them without us having to ask.

On the day we left, we took a cab to the train station which costs us 12 euros. This was much better than walking through the cobbled streets lugging your suitcases. Although there was a taxi stand round the corner, the staff helped us to call for one which came immediately right in front of the entrance. Hotel Pendini deserves to be in the top 20 for its central location, pricing, comfort and attentive staff. Strongly recommended!

This moderately priced hotel in a prime location is great value. The Pendini overlooks a major square and is perfect to access the river and most city attractions are within walking distance. The rooms are large and comfortable and the staff are very helpful. The hairdresser on the first floor is also excellent! We had an issue with the laundry which they resolved very quickly and to our complete satisfaction.

Room Tip: Rooms fronting the square are more expensive. Those facing the internal light well and side street a...

Only stayed here for 1 night based on location, which was great. Hotel staff were helpful and very pleasant. We stayed in a standard two bedroom which was a good size and clean with an updated bathroom. Breakfast was good.

Me and my partner stayed here for two nights. Hotel was lovely and staff nice and friendly. Hotel room was lovely and is a great location for all the sites. We were able to visit most places and dinner in some nice places including the Yellow Bar.

stunning view over the square a budget. Our kids are adults though , 21 & 17. We booked this room online direct with the hotel and choose a room to sleep all of us, 1 double 2 x singles. We are always a bit sceptical of the hotels own photos, but the photos did not do justice to reality.
Fantastic room with a view right over the square. Everything is clean, fresh and beautifully decorated. The beds are very comfortable.
We originally were looking at a room a bit further out of town to save money but we only had one night in Florence and didn't want to spend a lot of time getting into the main city centre.
The hotel offers valet parking, definately worth it. If you are driving in you will need GPS as navigating around the tiny one way streets can be really confusing.
Try and book a room with a view over the square, you hopefully wont spend a lot of time in your room but the initial reaction when you step to the window is priceless.
You have to have a ride on the carousel.

Room Tip: If you are driving in, use GPS and valet parking. Book a room with a view of the square.

This hotel is located in Renaissance Florence, couldn't be better. Everything is right there, no need for taxi. Rooms were not modern but comfortable enough. Breakfast was basic with lovely fresh croissants and bread rolls. Negatives were that we had a room with a view of nothing and the room was not modern or luxurious by any means.
