“For romance in Florence, this is the place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

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.

We continue to love our stays at the Palazzo. Impeccable service from a wonderful staff, comfortable rooms, great breakfast. Location, for us, is perfect. Can walk to almost any site in the city, buses stop outside if you don't want to walk. Can't wait for our return next September. Kudos to all.

We stayed in this wonderful hotel for 4 nights in April. The location was perfect. The hotel is on the other side of the river from the 'main' attractions but it's an easy and beautiful walk. The hotel is located in a very quiet and quaint area. We were told it was the area where more of the locals hang out. The restaurants in this area were all good. Of course the Gelati was just up the street. We absolutely loved everything about it. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We have three little girls and we find it difficult to find hotels that will let us all stay together. They usually make us book two rooms (In Europe). The suite at Palazzo Magnani was super! Plenty of room for all of us. We were very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with everything you could want. If it is not sitting out at the buffet you can order (i.e. Omelet). Upon arrival they took our SUV to a garage for us. It was parked away safely until we departed. A perfect stay. We would definitely love to stay with them again in the future!

This is a very special place with a wonderful staff, very large suites... A very complete and delicious breakfast...One might say that it is a total palatial experience! On the other side of the river from the "main" attractions, it nevertheless is highly accessible and in a quiet quaint area. We would highly recommend this beautiful venue.

A gem of a place close to sights with plenty of good restaurants around it. The suite was brilliant, bed comfortable and all mod cons, very quiet and hard to believe the property is in a busy street. Staff very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was superb. The views over Florence from the roof terrace were delightful.

Wow. Great place. Everything was very well done. From the pre-arrival through checkout. The room was outstanding. Perfect for our family of 4. We had the Executive Suite. Larger than what we needed. The breakfast was delightful. The terrace was a great place to relax with a glass of wine. Staff was very, very helpful. I stay in a hotel >100 nights/year. This was simply outstanding.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
