“The essence of Firenze”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

If you wish to get Firenze under your skin, this is the right hotel for your stay. The location at Piazza S. Spirito in Oltrano is excellent, It's a central part of Firenze with a genuin, local atmosphere characterised by small shops, workshops, and not too many tourists. And only few minutes walk from the main attractions. Some of the best resaurants of Firenze are found in the area. Piazza S. Spirito is situated near River Arno and a short walk away from Palazzo Pitti. Here you find the historic and famous gardens of Boboli (nice for a pick-nick) and Bardini (from its café you have a marvelous view of Firenze with the cathedral in the middle). The hotel itself, is found in the upper floors in one of the town's many Palazzi. From the loggia you have a nice view over surrounding roofs to the distant wooded hills. After a day in town, we relaxed with a drink and a good book in the loggia. Hotel Palazzo Guadagni certainly fulfilled our dreams about a stay in Firenze. Our large bedroom had a magnificent fireplace framed in marble and it opened to the Piazza. We slept well and were not disturbed by noice from outside. The large bathroom was fine. Breakfast was varied and very satisfying.The staff is friendly and very helpful. They helped us in a personal way so we felt very welcomed.
If you like comfort, quality and style,but is uncomfortable with the the large hotels, this is the place for you. ,

Room Tip: Room 4 was perfect to us.

I was lucky enough to stay at this hotel last year. My room had a beautiful view of the city and beyond. I was spellbound by the size and the artistic décor of the room and very well accommodated with TV, WiFi and lots of storage space. On opening the window, the fresh air blowing in just revive one's senses and makes one feel very peaceful.

The other exceptional experience I had was the Veranda. After a day of sightseeing, I enjoyed the sitting there with a nice chilled drink. It boasts a superb view of Santo Spirito square and from above i could take in the city at its best.This place is very welcoming, with charming staff members, Rita and Atish, always going out of their ways to facilitate my stay and provided me with an A-1 service.Breakfast in the common room, continental but yet filling with plenty of variety.

The surroundings had plenty of restaurants and was very safe to roam around even at night.

I would recommend this place to anyone, couple or family, this is the place to stay!

It is the second time we stay at Palazzo Guadagni . This time we stayed a week , next time I am not sure we will be able to go back home !! In fact this hotel makes you feel at home .. The staff there is very friendly and at the same time very professionnal. They always have an answer to your questions . In addition the rooms are very charming and the location perfect , really in the heart of Firenze but not in the "crowded " heart !! Piazza Santo Spirito gives you a flavor of the real florentine life .

Room Tip: We do prefer rooms with a view on Piazza Santo Spirito

Terrific location in fun and funky Oltrano, just 5 minutes from the bridges and Pitti Palace. Right on lively Santo Spirito square, with lots of small great restaurants nearby and safe late night walking. Be aware that the elevator doesn't serve all floors so you may need to carry your bags a bit. Our room was huge, with a balcony, couch, small table and beautifully frescoed ceiling. It was like stepping back in time, and sitting on the balcony and watching the street life was lots of fun. There's a fridge to cool your wine while you are out shopping or sightseeing.

Try dinner at the Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco nearby. Superb service, and the helpful staff will call for reservations. Breakfast was very good and the wi if was as advertised. We enjoyed every minute of our 3-day stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony if you want to watch the street life in the square. The loggia up top is lovely t...

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
