Reviewed April 19, 2014

I have recently returned from a 4 night stay at the Golden Tower Hotel with my partner. The location is perfect and within walking distance to all of the major tourist attractions within the city. The rooms are tastefully decorated, I was in room 502, the rooms are immaculately maintained, the housekeeping team do a fantastic job along with all of the staff in the hotel. The reception team were professional, attentive and efficient and the waiter/waitress service at breakfast were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was delicious with a varied menu and the sitting area was beautifully set out. I have already recommended this hotel to friends who are visiting Florence in October and will without doubt return to this hotel. The bottle of champagne delivered to our room on the last night was a lovely surprise and a nice way to end what was a lovely trip. Small tip, the deluxe room/upgrade include unlimited use of the spa and also includes the use of the minibar and is well worth the money. The free wifi is also a great benefit.

Room Tip: I was on the 5th floor and the rooms were a good size. I was at the back of the building and therefo...

Great location, the staff was excellent
Breakfast was very good.
I was in Florence for business meetings and I found it perfect as it's in the heart of Florence but without any noices.
I hope I could go back there soon.

We have just returned from a long weekend break in Florence to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The Golden Tower Hotel is a wonderful haven of comfort and tranquillity in this busy city. Only a few minutes walk from all the major attractions it was ideal for us 'unfit' travellers. The friendly and helpful staff are most welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. From the stylish rooms with quality linen, to the fresh and delicious breakfast in sumptuous surroundings everything makes this small, exclusive hotel 'A Jewel in the Crown of Florence'.

We have just returned from 3 nights in Florence. Our room was 505, a "Tower Suite". The room was very tastefully furnished, our Daughter had her own room on the mezzanine, which came with its own en-suite. An observation, the shower floors are lethal if you get shower gel on - beware!
What made this hotel special was the little attention to detail, a bowl of fresh fruit on arrival and then one night a surprise glass of Prosecco with fresh Strawberries.
The location was excellent, right in the centre of town, yet very quiet.
The breakfast was a super "American Style" buffet, one small niggle - the croissants. I know this was Italy and not France, but for a 5star hotel, the croissants could be a lot lot better! and ditch the ones with lemon/chocolate filling ahhhh.

All in all a delightful stay, very nice.

Room Tip: 505 and 504 are on the top floor, away from the lift doors

This hotel name doesn't conjure up the beauty of Florence, but the position, service and beautiful design and furnishings make this the perfect choice. A no through road in the elegant area of Florence makes this a tranquil spot within easy walking of designer shopping, a myriad of wonderful restaurants and bars, and Florentine tourist sites.
Breakfast offers a great choice for all tastes. Could not be better .Also has excellent spa facilities if that is to your liking.

Room Tip: Room 302 was perfect for us. Sumptuously furnished with marble en suite and large shower.

We stayed for the extended weekend, it was not our first time at Golden Tower. Although located in historical centre, easily reached by car. Coming with good previous experience, this time they surprised us with the room-upgrade to suite. Simply beautiful, furnished with touch of class, High bed and linen quality, excellent bathroom. Thank's, we loved it.
Friendly stuff, helpful with local advice. Perfect location, shopping or visiting most sites within easy walking distance. Although rather expensive, this is where it pays off. Spa is rather small, but quality service.
In summary: not a budget hotel, but worth the price - you do get, what you pay for. Perfect choice for our purpose, we'll be back. Soon, I hope.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street may get noisy in the evening.

Just returned from three nights in Florence. We stayed in room 504, one of the deluxe tower rooms. Beautifully furnished with great attention to detail. A lovely bowl of fresh fruit on arrival and complementary Prosecco. The staff were very helpful but what really makes this hotel is its location. It's no more than five minutes from all the sites and is a wonderful quiet oasis from the hustle and bustle. Our room was very quiet and very comfortable, if a little on the small side. The bathroom was fitted to the highest standard. The spa is small, but when we visited it was not particularly busy. The breakfasts were buffet style with a great range of meats, cheeses and pastries. Although this hotel is not cheap it acts as a very good demonstration of the fact that you do get what your pay for. Not for travellers on a budget, but those in search of a magical location for a special occasion will not be disappointed. Florence is a truly wonderful city and I recommend this hotel unreservedly.
