“A beautiful hotel with an amazingly courteous staff, located less than a block away from all of the best the Florence has to off”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Florence, in of itself, is breathtaking... The Bernini Palace is no exception. We had the pleasure of staying here for 3 days during our honeymoon and I feel pretty safe saying, it was our favorite of the whole two week trip. Beautiful rooms and exquisite service! My husband and I are covered in tattoos and usually these places are not very welcoming to our kind, BUT the Bernini palace on the other hand treated us like we were family. The decor is breathtaking, the rooms and welcoming and very large! The food...oh my god their food! The restaurant was probably one of the best places we have eaten in all of Florence.
Its centrally located, just one block from the Uffizzi museum, piazza de Vecchio, great shops, etc. its in the perfect spot to see everything! Everything about this hotel was perfect. Every time we go back to Florence we will be staying here! The best hotel in all of Italy! Bellissmo!

We stayed for 3 nights, in,a beautiful room that featured a hanging chandelier, such a lovely feature! The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is in a wonderful position, literally 50m from the main piazza, it is walking distance to everything and a perfect spot if you are a tourist. Breakfast was great, and free wifi included. Would love to visit again and also recommend!

In a great location. Its walking distance to everything. The staff are friendly and speak good english and are very helpful. It isnt the cheapest hotel to stay at but it was lovely. The only problem we had was our laundry. We ended up having to pay $107 euro for a couple of clothes, so make sure you check with them first..apart from that it was great. The room we got (517) was very spacious and clean.

Hotel was excellent so was the breakfast incl. bubbles and for sure the location. Rooms were cleaned twice a day. Staff was very well trained and friendly. A pity that the dining room and bar were not attractive to go to. We tried twice to have dinner in the hotel, but nobody was there. Although you can eat very nice everywhere in the surrounding and staff is willing to help you to find the right place. We certainly will come back there. May be is a suggestion to the hotel to make a dining room/bar on the street side in the entrance hall.

For our first stop in the first city on our first trip to Italy, this place was first rate!

The location is divine, a short walk to the Ufizzi and the Pointe Vecchio and not too much further away from the Duomo.

The room was comfortable and spacious. The staff was cordial and helpful. And the buffet breakfast one of the best we had.

A keeper for sure.

Enjoy!

This is a great location and you are able to walk anywhere. The hotel would have gotten a higher rating except they claimed to have a hot tub on he roof but it was always out of order. The front desk mislead us everyday saying it was going to be fixed but other people staying there sayd it was always out of order.

Palazzo Bernini is perfectly located if you want to visit the historical center of Florence. The room I rented through bookings.com was small but very nice and worth the price. There werent any bathrobes but otherwise attention was given to every detail. Upon arrival the reception seemed to be a little bit messy ( you can expect that in Italy, it is part of the charm) but everybody is very friendly and trying to be helpfull. Special attention was given to the bed linens. They were great indeed. Turn over service is done too, with a pair of nicely wrapped fine chocolates.
Some negative points, that didn't bother me but good to know:
My room (308) was overlooking the internal part of the building, where are located the big units of the air conditionners. The windows are quite good and noise is stopped, but if you are sensitive to noise, better take another room.
If you arrive by car, the parking outside the hotel is very difficult and the hotel's parking is charged 35 Euros per night. Also, be careful when receptionnists sell you something or book a service for you. I got the most expensive haircut of my life - 50 Euros and my hair is 3-4 cm long ( Simon hairdresser's salon) ; i was given 2 touristic visit cards at the price of 30 Euros each, they finally were good only for the visit of the visit of the Santa Maria dei Fiori's complex which price were considerably lower in situ and we werent given any " express entry" from the security guy wathing the entry of the Dome. I was expecting a special treatment an more interesting price, as explained by the receptionnist.
This said my stay was a very positive experience and we stayed even one more night, so much we liked the athmosphere there.
