This was my first (of hopefully several) visits to Florence and my stay at Bernini Palace was WONDERFUL!! The location was perfect. I rarely felt I was more than 15 minutes walk from anywhere (assuming I didn't get lost ;0))The staff was friendly, efficient and extremely helpful; especially the late night/earlier morning reception staff.
My fourth floor room was charming, clean and very well kept. The breakfast buffet was fresh and plentiful and its service was far more elegant and attentive than I expected. The only time the service seemed a bit off was on a Saturday morning when the breakfast room was fairly crowded. As an art lover, I really enjoyed having breakfast surrounded by the lovely portraits and other frescoes. I also enjoyed sitting at the bar with a well-mixed cocktail and chatting with fellow guests.
Returning to the Bernini Palace after a long morning or day of sight-seeing was truly a pleasure. I can't wait until my next visit!
