“La migliore appartamento, l'ospite migliore”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Palazzo Belfiore is amazing. I would absolutely stay there again any time I needed (or wanted) to return to Florence. Federico in particular was charming, helpful, and funny. If you're looking for a place to stay to really soak in the feel of the city, ditch your plans at a hotel. Come and sleep at the Palazzo Belfiore where you can literally TOUCH HISTORY.

Palazzo Belfiore is so well situated that just staying there makes you feel like a Florentine! But the best thing about the place is Federico, who went out of his way to advise us on what to do and where to go, as well as to solve problems for us. For example towards the endo of our stay we were unable to get a taxi to the station, because there was abig cycling event on. So Federico came in to the Palazzo on his day off to drive us to the station before the event cut us off completely. That is why we call him "Federico el magnifico"!

Room Tip: Watch out for the mezzazine bedroom!

We were welcomed very nicely. Federico gave us all kind of tips and helped us find our way through Florence. A nice stay and a guide in one! The appartment was historic, clean and very cosy. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine. The house is in the middle of the historic centre.

Residence Palazzo Belfiore is an ideal location in Florence in that it is close to all of the "action" yet nicely removed (a couple blocks literally) from the tourist hustle and bustle. There is a small "hidden" classic Italian plaza adjacent to the property that has 3 restaurants, a cute coffee shop and a gelato store. More of a locals hangout since it is obscure from any tourist onslaught. Loved waking up and strolling for a coffee and sitting in the plaza watching the locals convene for a conversation and then head off for work - epic. Besides the ideal location, the rooms at Residence Palazzo Belfiore are very quaint and spacious. Finally, I have to pay a huge compliment to the staff in that they made us feel like family!! As I write this my heart warms. A few examples of their "service minded" intensions were that they volunteered to have a drive pick us up at the airport and the driver was so personable - a wonderful "welcome" to Florence; the second morning as we prepared to walk the town, the maid showed up our door with a basket full of fresh fruit she gathered from an orchard - so darn sweet of her and another example was the manager, Federico, giving us wonderful tips on restaurants including pointing us to small restaurant that was tucked away in an old goldsmith shop that clearly was a locals favorite - one of the best meals/experiences of our visit to Florence. Can I say more?

We loved our stay at Palazzo Belfiore! We stayed a few days here as part of our honeymoon, and were sorely tempted to cancel the rest of the trip and stay put! Federico was very helpful when we checked in. He had tips of the best places to visit, to eat and to stock up food for our little kitchenette. I also have to say I was really touched by the card and wee gifts they laid out as honeymoon gifts :) It's a great location- only 2 mins from Ponte Vecchio, Boboli Gardens and plenty of lovely Trattorias. Of course you go to Florence for the art and the history,and we were amazed to have the centuries-old frescoes on our bedroom wall. We look forward to our next visit!

A perfect Florence experience. Old tenement, nice renaissancerooms with stone floors and heavy wooden furnitures. Fantastic location with views from the bedroom to the roof of the Palazzo Pitti and the dome of the Duomo. Pleasant and helpful staff. Nice and clean. We had a simply wonderful stay at Palazzo Belfiore and will definitely return!

Room Tip: The Top-floor was excellent!
