Hotel Palazzo Guadagni
Ranked #49 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 29, 2011

Every year there are added amenities at Palazzo Guadagni which enhance the previous year’s visit. The rooms are spacious, filled with lovely antique furniture, beautiful fabrics and each has a large private bathroom with modern fixtures and hand painted tiles. No two rooms are alike.
You can eat breakfast in the morning in the sun-filled breakfast room, or sit outside on the loggia.
Palazzo Guadagni is distinct from other “hotels” in that you feel as if you are a guest in someone’s home. Wide hallways are filled with plants and sofas; or you can sit outside on the loggia to read, have coffee or a glass of wine. You can enjoy the panoramic view over Firenze and contemplate what the city looked like 500 years ago.
Palazzo Guadagni is located in piazza Santo Spirito where you are conveniently located to shops, restaurants, bars and the Church of Santo Spirito. A short walk from Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio and dozens of good restaurants and interesting shops. Just take a walk and admire all of the beautiful architecture and admire the fine artisans restoring mosaics, picture frames, mirrors, chandeliers, tapestries, etc. Let your mind wander and imagine what it was like when Michelangelo and Dante walked these same streets.
If you are looking for a unique experience, you should consider Palazzo Guadagni for your next vacation.

This was a really great hotel overall.

The only problem was that I had paid for a superior room which I don't actually think I got, our room (No. 7) seemed pretty standard compared to some of them with their wonderful ceilings, but it was very spacious with a beautifully tiled bathroom and antique furniture. I also think the room may have been quieter as it wasn't facing on the piazza which tended to be lively in the evening.

They have a gorgeous breakfast room and breakfast in Continental in style with plenty of choice. The loggia was ideal for chilling out on in the evenings. The best thing was that you really felt like you were getting a taste of Florence here rather than a soulless hotel.

I liked the location in the less touristy Santo Spirito area, I always felt very safe walking around the area or returning late at night, people were always around as there are plenty of great restaurants and bars nearby. Florence is quite small so everything can be reached by foot and I preferred not staying right in the centre.

The staff are very helpful and charming as well. When I return to Florence I would definitely stay here again, it is well priced although I would double check I was in the correct room next time!

Room Tip: Some rooms are exquisite - specify the room if you go for the superior option

This is a superb hotel, in a great location, only a short walk from any of the attractions.
Fabulous 'village' vibe with the quaint restaurants directly outside in the piazza and small fresh food markets in the morning.
The owners were very helpful and quite understanding when we returned late for checkout after collecting our car and getting lost in the maze of 1 way streets!
Would love to return.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon. The hotel was very grand and spotlessly clean. There were some really nice reataurants in the square below and it is a short walk to the centre of Florence.
Overall we had an enjoyable stay but we had a bad experience on the morning we were leaving. Our train was leaving for Venice at 9.30am. We enquired the night before about ordering a taxi and were told that we should tell reception staff in the morning to order it. We were up at 7.45 for breakfast and asked could a taxi be booked. We were told that there was no need to book one that when they rang it should only take five minutes to come. At 8.45am the girl behind reception tried to ring for about ten minutes but was unable to get a taxi. She instead suggested that we go and get the bus. Out we went into the rain with our lugguage to look for the bus stop. Bearing in mind this was now 9.05 and Florence like every other city has rush hour traffic. We got to the bus stop only to be greeted by a bus which was packed to the rafters so we were unable to get on it. Eventually we had to ask for directions and literally power walk/run to the train station with our lugguage in the rain. We made it with literally two minute to spare.
To excuse the pun it really put a dampner on our stay at the hotel.

We were in Florence in July as my daughter was doing an art course for 2 weeks. Our stay at this hotel was fantastic! Very clean very friendly helpful staff .Rita made sure we had our favorite pastry every morning. I ended up breaking my foot the last weekend we were there and Laura was checking on me and bringing me coffee to my bed ! Very well run it had such charm and elegance it felt like you were in old world Italy ! We will definitely be back !

We stayed in this hotel for one night in early July. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the room was large, clean, and met all of our needs. The bathroom was also unusually large and was very nice. This hotel included a terrace with a nice view for guests to relax. We bought a bottle of wine, and the staff was kind enough to provide a corkscrew and two glasses for us. The air conditioning was pretty adequate (we had better on our trip), but it met our needs. The wi-fi connection was a bit inconsistent at times, but don't let that deter you from staying there on your relaxing vacation, as this was a great hotel overall. Highly recommended!
