My husband and I stayed at the Palazzo for 4 nights in April on our first trip to Florence. If we go back, this is exactly where we would stay again. The hotel is quiet, intimate, and romantic - which was our biggest priority. We stayed in the 'smaller' junior suite with the frescoes (the Smerelda suite), but it was still huge and had high frescoed ceilings, a private little courtyard, and was only accessible from the main courtyard for additional privacy.
In addition, the attention to detail of the staff is impeccible. From the time that we booked through the end of the stay, our every request was immediatly answered and fulfilled. The location was within easy walking distance to all the major sites, with the added advantage of being just across the river and away from the congested areas with all the foot traffic and on-going construction. I was really happy that we hadn't booked at the more expensive hotels over the bridge - I would have been miserable with all that construction noise.
Out of all the places that we stayed, the Palazzo had by far the best continental breakfast. It was a huge spread, plus it included made-to-order eggs and omelets if desired. We were always well fed before we leaded out on our day's adventures.
If you are looking for an intimate and romantic hotel for your trip to Florence, this is the place. You won't regret booking here.
