“As good as the reviews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stayed here for our honeymoon and had a wonderful week. The suite we had was the smerelda and it was amazing. The staff were polite and always on hand to help, the breakfasts were very good quality and the cocktails were spot on. I would reccomend this to anyone. The hotel is on the quieter side of the river but is only a short walk to the main attractions, there are some nice bars and restaurants in this arty side of the city.

My only constructive feedback would be about the bathroom in the suite. For a room of its size and cost we were hoping for a more luxurious bathroom, the shower was small and the drainage was poor but I am being picky here as the accomodation is first rate.

We stayed for three nights and wished it was longer. The room was spacious and extremely comfortable, the junior suite makes you feel you are staying in an old palace. Breakfast was spectacular and the choice almost unlimited. The location is great as you are just outside of all the crowds. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Our daughter sent a year in Florence , however we did not know this hotel then. First of all we have stayed at the Lungarno, many times and Villa Massa....but ths hotel surpasses them all. We loved the location , easy to walk everywhere. It is in an area up and coming...perfectly safe! All suites, our 2 rooms and bath were sumptuous. Breakfasts were served either in the room or a breakfast room.A huge selection of food, all fresh and delicious . The staff was terrific. It was just simply wonderful. Priced well, service great location superb.....what more could you ask for. We cannot wait to go back next year.

We booked Palazzo Magnani Feroni for my partner's birthday and it more than lived up to our expectations. Florence is historic, beautiful and spellbinding, and the Magnani Feroni fits perfectly into this backdrop. It is tucked away in a quiet backstreet on Oltrano. The main sights of Florence are a short walk away and there are any number of traditional shops and restaurants on its doorstep. Staff could not have been more attentive and the service was first rate. Lorenzo the Magnificent would have felt at home. I would recommend the Palazzo to anyone looking for an unforgettable stay in this most beautiful of cities.

Excellent service. Discreet but yet attentive. Rooms were huge and I had the Guiseppe Suite which is two bedrooms with a large living area. Breakfast was sumptious and what a delight for us return to the hotel after a day in Florence. Hot tea and Nespresso awaitng in the lounge for us.

Health warning: this will spoil you for all other hotels in Florence.
The location is perfect for sightseeing and exploring on foot the small cobbled streets of Oltrarno with its plethora of small shops and restaurants, as well as palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens, the Ponte Vecchio area, the Duomo and all the other museums in the historical centre. The hotel can help with booking tickets ahead so you avoid the queues - but this can also be done online.
The building itself, in the owner's family for over 250 years, was sympathically restored and opened in 2002 as a suites only hotel retaining many original architectural features but without sacrificing any comfort. For example the vaulted ceilings are dizzyingly high but the rooms are warm in winter.
The suites are all enormous and elegantly furnished but so comfortably you instantly feel at home, with amenities such as TVs and DVD players, minibar, a safe, Bulgari toiletries, a free guide and map to Florence and lots of information in the folder given on arrival. A word of caution: the bottled of wine enticingly placed on a side table and labeled "for your tasting enjoyment" actually costs EUR44, although the charge only becomes apparent upon checkout.
The hotel has many lounging areas, a billiard room, a magnificent breakfast room decorated with antique family portraits. The roof terrace offers spendid views of Florence.
Coffee and tea are available free of charge throughout the day and there's free coffee and cake in the afternoon - we weren't around to try it but think it's a lovely touch.
Breakfast is a huge buffet with sweet and savoury offerings plus you can order eggs cooked to your taste. It can also be served in your suite for a EUR15 supplement but it would be a shame to missout on the beautiful room.
The staff almost all speak English and are extremely courteous and helpful. They kept our luggage after we checked out, lent us umbrellas, booked us a taxi to the station and would have done much more had we asked.
After my second stay there I cannot recommend it highly enough. It's very expensive but check out their special offers on their web site for some real bargains given the quality of accommodation and service.

We stayed here for one week in December 2012, with our 3 year old son. We had a two bedroom suite, with the large living room. This room is huge - seriously these rooms a big. With soaring ceilings and large space it was a great space to play and spend time with our son when we weren't our exploring florence. The service was great too. We had breakfast each morning in the breakfast room which had lots of variety. Less than a 5 min walk to everything across the river. Nice and quiet when we were there. Tip for anyone staying there with a child - if you have a young child I would suggest not having a separate bedroom for them - the two bedroom suite was so big, we ended up not using the second bedroom as we felt we were too far away from our child at night - and probably wouldn't here him - the bedrooms were on either side of the living room. I would suggest organsing for a roll out bed to be placed in the main bedroom of the one bedroom suite, as you can still enjoy the other living space with the bedroom door closed. Downside - I only mentioned this as it may be applicable to people who are unable to go out for dinner at night. We weren't able to go out for dinner at night (early bed time for son), the room service wasnt' great as we had to rely on it each night for our son's dinner. Not much variety and not fabulous.

Palazzo Magnani Feroni is an historical home that for over five hundred years has been at the centre of Florence's aristocratic life: one of the oldest dwellings in the San Frediano neighbourhood, it has stood as an important symbol of the city's history and its artistic value. The class of this elegant renaissance palace, evident upon entering, finds its maximum expression in the sumptuous suites and the luxurious hospitality quarters, furnished with candelabra, statues, paintings and frescoes form the '500. Each suite reflects the refinement of the Renaissance style, with the subtle combination of comfort and modern technology and decorated with tasteful antique furnishings and materials originating from the owners' ancestors' antique collection. Spanning between 80- and 120-square meters (860- and 1300- square feet) in size, the 13 suites each comprise a large living room, bedroom(s) and master bathroom(s). Each includes all amenities expected of a five-star luxury hotel, including stereo, satellite television in both the living room and bedroom, internet port and self-regulating air conditioning units. An architectural jewel of the 16th century, the Palazzo Magnani Feroni belongs to the National Register of Historical Monuments of the State of Italy. Detail and ornamentation characterises the building throughout, surprising the wanderer with frescoes, vaulted ceilings and intricate wood-carvings. The Renaissance decor prevails in this palace of traditional Florentine lay-out. Breakfast, for instance, is served in a 160-square meter salon with hand-crafted wood ceilings illuminated by a large original Murano chandelier. In the winter evenings, this salon serves as an intimate, candle-lit Bar, accessible to Palazzo guests and their friends only. The same rules are applicable to the adjoining Billiard Room, as well as to the In-House Gym, so as to assure the guests with absolute privacy. The beautiful Roof-Top Terrace offers a breathtaking view of the city and houses the Palazzo Bar as soon as the temperature permits. Providing 24-hour Reception and Service, the Palazzo Magnani Feroni is run by a staff dedicated to meet your every need with efficiency and discretion, both prior, during and following your stay. Services include reservations to exclusive restaurants, recommendations of typical local eateries and trattorias, coordination of privileged entrance to the city's museums, airport / train station pick-up, private shopping tours, visits to the Ferrari Museum and private, chauffeured excursions to the beautiful Chianti valley. Also, Palazzo guests choose from a selection of CDs, DVD films and soap fragrances for their suite, as well as benefit from private Guides to shopping and restaurants off the beaten path, personally written by the owners of the Palazzo for an "insider's view" of Florence. ... more   less
