“Perfect location”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I just checked out of the San Firenze suites and I must say we had an amazing stay. The hotel staff was always prompt, helpful, and pleasant. We were here for 4 nights and we found it to be a great home base as we explored Florence and Tuscany. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Dear Stephanie B.,

Thanks for Your so nice review, it would have been great to have You here for some days more! Of course in a trip to Italy You need to see all our main cities, so that you cannot stop here for a so long time, however we always hope that You will have the opportunity for a second holiday in Florence!
Should You be able to come in a different season, it will be also a great opportunity to visit Chianti areas, our wonderful hills around the city: our staff will be glad to help You organizing everything You might need!
Hope to see You soon again, please remember that contacting us directly, our management will be glad to offer You the great Loyal discount!

With kind Regards

3 of us stayed in two rooms at this magnificent establishment for 6 days. It is really a shame that we couldn't have stayed even longer, but there is a lot of Italy we still need to see. From the moment we arrived Barbara, Livinia and David made us feel that we were special, like old family members coming home. There was not a single recommendation, large or small (where the best whatever was, where an attraction was, how to get directions to something or somewhere, etc) that wasn't spot on. Their English was excellent and they took the time to help us with our limited Italian. So much for the staff--I could go on for some time singing their praises, but on about the property. Location. Location. Location. Literally in walking distance to everything Florence. The two rooms we had were on the 3rd floor overlooking the piazza. In the early evening the street noises were wonderful to listen to--cars passing by, church bells ringing, conversations, etc. However, come 2-3 am those same conversations became quite loud. Close the windows and all you heard was silence. Truly sound-proof-windows. The beds. Six nights of sheer heaven. As far as hotel beds go (and I have slept in more than my share), these are at the top of the princess-and-the-pea stack. Plenty of room in the room for all of our suitcases without having to climb over anything. Breakfast in the morning was nothing less than excellent as well. Fresh fruit, juices, pastries, hot beverages, etc. couldn't have asked for more. If I could have given it more stars I would have. Highly recommended!

Dear Tymbo family,

thanks for Your so wonderful review, it has been a pleasure to us all to receive it!
Seeing that we have been so helpful for You it is the most important thing for us: our guest comes before everything!
The architecture of the hotel has given us the opportunity to build the hotel as You can see it: soundproof windows – the main important thing while You stay in a so central location, in the middle of Florentine life!
Our staff is always glad to help our guest, as we want You to feel like home while You are here, so we do all our best to give You the best recommendation, same that we could give to a member of our family!
The, of course, central location, is one of the strong point of the hotel, matched with the furniture and interior decoration, we always hope that this can leave in our guest magic memories of your Florentine stay!
Every single details have been studied and chosen personally by the owners and management: this gives to the hotel a “personal touch”, which we hope everyone will enjoy!
On top, breakfast without having to go out in the morning, is the “cherry on the cake” – ciliegina sulla torta – as we use to say here in Italy: fresh fruit, cakes, hot drinks, fresh eggs, bacon and so much more wait for You every morning, our way to say to you a nice “Buongiorno!”
We hope to have You here in the next future, it will be a pleasure for us to offer You the Loyal discount for Your next travel to Florence!

With Kind Regards

What a gem! Given it's proximity to the Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizzi, and Museo Gucci etc the suites were very good value. Our room had a gorgeous view over Piazza San Firenze, and you could open the window to take advantage of the pealing bells, but when closed the room was very quiet. Spacious and comfortable room. Staff were helpful and able to book tickets to Galleria Accademia for us which was a must to save us heaps of time.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in mid July, 2013. It was a great experience. The staff at the hotel all spoke good English and were helpful in providing directions/ information as required. We traveled to Florence to celebrate our honeymoon and were provided with a free room upgrade to help celebrate our special occasion, we even had a view of the top of the Duomo Cathedral from our window! The hotel was clean and had daily room service which was wonderful! The hotel is very centrally located, you can walk to all the main sites of Florence easily, everything seemed to be within 10 minutes reach! Daily breakfast included was great and was served in the restaurant next door to the hotel. This is a fantastic restaurant that we also chose to eat lunch and some dinners at regularly, as the service and quality of food was fantastic, let alone very cheap in comparison to some other restaurants in the area- you can’t go wrong! The hotel staff were all so friendly and helpful in providing us with some great tips on where to shop for great quality leather products- would highly recommend this hotel!

Thanks for an enjoyable stay!

Brooke and Tim

Dear Brooke and Tim,
Thanks for Your so nice review, it is a real pleasure for us to have so nice comments from our guest! The central location of our hotel is of course a strong point, which is luckily match with all the magic and wonderful historical monuments and buildings of Florence, as it is also the one where our hotel has been created in, from the 17th century!
Having a bar restaurant next door connected to us is also a great fortune, so that all our guest can enjoy complete breakfast and, why not, lunch, dinner, aperitif and much more!
Our staff always try to help our guest as best as possible, making You feel at home, providing all the informations and suggestions on how to spend Your holiday here in Florence: whatever You might need, ask to us, we will be glad to help!
On top of all, the double glazed windows can give You the soundproof relaxing stay, as being in the centre of the city can sometimes let You ear tourist and locals around San Firenze square: You can enjoy Florentine life, but also close the window and relax after a long walking tour day!
Should You come in future, You or friends and family, do not hesitate to contact us directly, our staff will be glad to offer You the best rate, with special Loyal discount!
Hope to see You soon again,

With Kind Regards

My wife and I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world but none compare with the warmth and hospitality extended to us by the staff at the San Firenze Suites.From Lavinia,Barbara,Elena on reception to Amanti(who makes a killer capuccino) and the girls on the bar to our domestic goddesses who gave us fresh linen and towels each day.I know this probably sounds a bit gushing but when you've spent the day absorbing the beautiful city of Florence and you need the sanctuary of your hotel room this is the place to stay.Thanks to all of you.Linda and John Shaw.
