We had the pleasure of staying at the Palazzo Ruspoli for four nights whilst in Florence. The location of this Bed and Breakfast is superb, you are right in the heart of the city, all your needs are nearby. We requested a triple room (family of 3) was pleasantly surprised how large the room was. Our room faced the Duomo... More

We originally wanted to stay at the Hotel Brunelleschi in Florence but when booking online we saw a great deal for their sister property, Palazzo Ruspoli. We paid 184 euros for 2 nights. The location was awesome. It was just a few hundred metres from the Duomo on the main street. It was a bit noisy because the street was... More

All I can think is there must be some good rooms and some horrible based on the polar reviews. We must have gotten a horrible one. First, we got there at 11:30 am and lugged our bags from the train station and we were eager to drop them off and start exploring Florence but when we got there there was... More

I have had the opportunity to read the comments you have left online with Tripadvisor.com about the stay you have partially spent at Palazzo Ruspoli in the recent past. This ancient noble Florentine residence has recently been reopened as bed and breakfast by the same Proprietors of the Hotel Brunelleschi, very well-known 4 stars Hotel located walking distance away from...

I had a lovley experience at this hotel. The location is excellent and the room I was given was HUGE. I awoke to beautiful views of the Duomo and the Medici Chapel. I spent 5 nights in this room and enjoyed every minute. I don't ask much from hotel staff- i was traveling alone, so I was only there to... More

Stayed for the weekend in this charming hotel. I chose this hotel because it looked charming, centrally located at the same time easy to get to from the ring road. You can park your car for a few minutes in front of the hotel when you arrive and check in. Then they will call the garage to pick it up.... More

The entrance is through the ground floor of an office building that smells very bad. You should take the elevator to go to the third floor, where is really the entrance of this small hotel. The rooms and breakfast are good enough for the price. The noise is terrible, specially for the rooms with views to the street. Main advantage:... More

The Palazzo Ruspoli is, as mentioned in the other reviews, the top two floors of a commercial building with a medical clinic and offices. Its best and worst feature was its location. For the best part, you can walk anywhere in Florence in a half hour, and it's a half block to the Duomo. However, since traffic is routed around... More
