This is something very special. I stayed here two years ago but was welcomed back like an old friend. My rooms were like a dream come true, with a fantastic view across the square over to the Duomo, Campanile and all the other famous buildings of Florence on the other side of the Arno. The spacious public terrace has similar views and is a great place to read, have a drink or whatever you want to do to relax. It's such a nice place to be, it's tempting simply to stay there and experience the city from there, without the distraction of the tour groups trying to 'do' Florence in a day.

The Campo is a great place to eat and the market makes it a real attraction for local inhabitants. I stayed in five locations on this trip, in Bologna, Siena and Venice as well as Florence and this was the one to which I would return with the greatest pleasure.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have a particularly great view but the view from the public area is fantastic anyw...

Hotel Guadagni is a gem. Its near the historical centre, but has the charm of a local B&B. The rooms are spacious and cool.
The staff is very friendly and will answer all of your questions. The only thing to keep in mind is that the piazza is
always full of people and even at night there are some strange people who wander around there. To be honest, it is to be
expected when you stay in a city. In other words, bring your earplugs if you are a light sleeper.

Breakfast is nice and well organised.

Room is so spacious to the extent you can't believe it. Great restaurants just downstairs which serve amazing local food. Staff are very helpful. From hotel to downtown it is more than 10 mins walking distance, not bad at all.

Just returned from two nights at this smart, friendly hotel in the Santa Spirito quarter of Florence. Fantastic location overlooking the quiet square which gently hums with locals and tourists sitting at bars and restaurants. The hotel is in a former palace and the highlight must be the terrace - the views of the city are breathtaking and the ideal tonic after a day sightseeing. Child friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Good breakfast and very helpful staff. Recommended.

Great Hotel, Perfect location on the south side of the Arno, away from all the mad tourist areas. Lovely room with high painted ceiling, fantastic second floor terrace - ideal for relaxing after a hard days sight seeing, the hotel can provide drinks and snacks while you take in the sights and sounds of Piazza Santo Spirito outside. Breakfast was perfect and can be taken in the fantastic breakfast room or out on the terrace. A special thanks to all the staff who where brilliant, especially Rita who looked after us in the mornings. We will return soon..

Situated in Piazza Santo Spirito, a lively market place in the morning, where locals sit in the shade and pass the time of day, this wonderfully quirky hotel, with its grand loggia and spacious rooms is ideal for those wishing to enjoy a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the tourist trail.
The hotel is a short step from all the important sites, including Santo Spirito itself, and from some notable local restaurants. Ferdinando, Lara and all the staff were extremely helpful and ensured that our stay was memorable for all the right reasons.
My husband is quite severely physically disabled, but using the lift presented no problems at all. We will definitely stay there again!!!

We stayed during our recent visit in July to Florence at the Palazzo Guadagni. You shoudl be aware that you either need to walk up a number of steps or use a small elevator. However, the place and staff were great. They we very helpful arranging for our tour and museum visits. There were 4 of us, so we stayed in teh family room. Very comfortable and roomy. Most of all, we loved sitting on the balcony off the lobby at nights and enjoying the view of Florence. Magical. Also enjoyed the square below the hotel which had several good restaurants and of course Gellato. Take-out pizza place around the corner was simply amazing! Overall, would definitely stay here again.
