We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Palazzo Magnani. It was, without a doubt, a highlight of our vacation. This hotel has so many unique and wonderful elements; it is a small and quiet hotel in a gorgeous and perfectly restored palazzo. The location is superb; everything was within a 10 to 15 min walk, and the Ponte Vecchio is 2 blocks away. The hotel is so quiet and peaceful; you'd have no idea you're in the heart of Florence. We stayed in the Guiseppe suite with my 2 children. It's spacious, high ceilings, grand and elegant. From the opera music played at breakfast (delicious buffet), to the handmade soaps, along with the spectacular rooftop patio, this hotel ranks as one of my all time favorites. The staff couldn't be more helpful- an added plus. If you are looking for a quiet, low key and absolutely elegant experience; this is the place!
