I spent 4 nights at the Galileo 2000 and, while the location is wonderful, I would neither stay there again nor recommend it. PROS The location, on Piazza San Firenze, is hard to beat. The Piazza is small with just a couple of restaurants so it isn't very busy or noisy. It is close to everything you'll want to see...

So we've just returned from a 3 night stay and the location is absolutely amazing! You're close to everything and that was the best thing. Would I stay again? Not sure, you see we were in room 3 and it has an immense window but no outside view. So couldn't even open it for fresh air as it overlooked a...

This location is central to everything. Our room was spacious as was the bathroom. The hostess was very helpful and friendly. We were able to do our laundry at the B&B for a cost. Breakfast is a few doors down. For 5 euro you get coffee, juice, toast, and an additional item of your choice. Highly recommend this B&B. My...

Galileo is lovely little hotel in perfect location. Evis the manager was so friendly and helpful and our room was spotless. You could get breakfast from a lovely cafe near the hotel for reduced rate of 5 euro with a business card from Evis. Would recommend Galileo 2000 & we will be back.

Very centrally located apartment in a small square with plenty of restaurants and within close walking distance to the sights of Florence. There's an elevator to get your luggage to the lobby entrance which is great. Rooms were clean, somewhat old-fashioned but roomy and comfortable enough. The hostess/manager Evis was the best part about our stay. She seems to work...

This is not really a B&B hotel as the breakfast has to be taken in a café next door. Great service there. Despite an abundance of tea bags, there was no coffee available in the room. Elegant and spacious rooms. Probably a bit overpriced.

Hi it was easy to find, but only as i had seen the photos on trip adviser. It is in a fantastic location within a few hundred metres of most of the city main sites. The hotel entrance is on the 1st' floor and about a dozen steps from the front door to the lift to go upto the 1st....

We found the accommodation easily and were thrilled with the warm greeting. The hotel is lovely and our room was ready for us even though we arrived at 10.30am! The hotel was a perfect base for our two days in Florence. Our room and the facilities were top notch and we cannot fault our stay here. Some people have said...

Great position, gorgeous room and bathroom, very nice and professional service. What's negative? piazza san firenze is quite noisy late at night and early in the morning. There is no breakfast in the B&B, but an agreement with a bar nearby. Car parking is far away but the pick-up service is well arranged.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
