Reviewed March 2, 2014

When we visit Florence, this is the only place we will stay! The staff is VERY friendly, courteous, and accommodating. We stayed in their room for a family - it has one room with a queen-sized bed, a second room with two twin beds, and a bathroom. Perfect for a family of four - and at the right price.

The hotel has a beautiful veranda with tremendous views of the rooftops of Florence and the hills of Tuscany. You can sit either inside or outside.

As is said in other reviews - this hotel is not five-star luxury, but it has everything our family needed. The hotel is clean and comfortable and in the perfect location in Piazza Santo Spirito. All of Florence is in walking distance.

Highly recommended!

If you look for a luxurious or a design hotel in Florence this is not your place. But if you value a perfect location and a great value/price accomodation where to stay after sightseeing this beautiful city, this could be a perfect choice.
This old Palace has what is needed, a spacious and well disposed room, a decent breakfast well serviced by a professional staff.
Its location might be one of the best in Florence, because is very lively, close to must-see places (Palazzo Pitti, Capella Brancachi or Ponte Vecchio), surrounded by enoteques and trattorias, whilst not being noisy.
Good value!

Room Tip: Try second floor with a view to il Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio

We stayed at the Palazzo Guadagni for 5 nights in February 2014. Having booked well in advance we had a choice of rooms and, following an exchange of emails with the hotel, opted for room 8 for the views. We were not disappointed. The picture postcard rooftop vistas of the city and Duomo from both the bedroom and bathroom exceeded our expectations. Having said that all the rooms we were fortunate enough to view during our stay were special in their own, but different, way.

This hotel is not high class luxury but it oozes old Italian charm, elegance and hospitality. The staff could not do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, providing advice, booking restaurants and taxis. It is difficult to imagine staying at another, or better, place in Florence.

My challenge when reviewing this hotel is based on completing the review either culturally or as a hotel.

The reason I booked the hotel was because of its history, 16th century building in a quiet and historical part of the city away from the commercial activities.The location met my expectation, the building fascinating and the room likewise.

We booked and were helped with Martina, who completed a superb job, booking me into the room she described, high ceiling, painted in the decor of the time, overlooking the piazza with a balcony to take in the views. On the top floor a terrace where you can drink a glass of wine, with superb views across the region.

For pure culture, exactly what I booked , I received.

As a hotel and surrounding area, I would rate the "experience" quite differently- perhaps a 2

Firstly there are many stairs and a tiny lift, this may put off some visitors.
Secondly the service was average, I mentioned my mini bar / fridge was not cold twice and not repaired.
Breakfast is basic, coffee not great and a 2€ supplement for a better quality one.
The local piazza is home to many dogs, drinkers and a resident vagrant group. At night what should feel like a quaint traditional area feels run down. The 1st floor houses language students so they sit on the steps outside the church alongside the vagrants, drinking into the night.

As such the evening can become noisy for those wanting to sleep before 23:00
The morning is no better, with the church bells starting to chime and the market stall traders setting up from 6am-

We left, tired and with a feeling of what might have been.

BUT- I had not booked for a modern, double glazed hotel in a chic modern area of Florence - so received what I wanted. A most majestic room,,with character second to none....

We stayed here for two nights back in May 2012 while vacationing in Florence. The hotel is a great value, as it is very affordable considering how highly-reviewed it is. It definitely lived up to its reputation!

The hotel was easy to find, and its location - the Santo Spirito neighborhood just south of the Arno, very close to Pitti Palace - is very nice. It is close enough to the city center to be convenient, but far enough away to be quaint and quiet. It is located on a palazzo with several good restaurants. One in particular (Osteria Santo Spirito) had food so good that we went there several times.

The staff are all polite and accommodating. Prior to our trip I asked them about how to go about getting tickets to Uffizi and Accademia. They booked reservations for me, which I really appreciated.

The room was quite large compared to our other stays in Europe. The bed was comfortable, the surrounding area was quiet at night, and we had a nice view from our window. The complimentary breakfast was pretty good as well. Perhaps the best part about the hotel is the rooftop garden bar, which is large enough for many people to enjoy, and provides a nice view of the surrounding area.

We highly recommend the Palazzo Guadagni!

Room Tip: Rooms on the side away from the palazzo are quieter
