“Location and place”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

Hotel is just in the middle of everything,that matters inFlorence,but this causes a bit of problems for those,who arrive by car-GPS does not work very well in the maze of narrow streets of old city,but it is not a major problem.
Hotel is beautiful,not to say charming,but it has shortcomings,because it was not built as a hotel in our modern times,so compromises between modern expectations and old charms are visible.
Rooms are large,clean,bathtooms as well.
Sevice is not to the highest standard,I had an argument with receptionst,who wanted to photocopy my credit card,which is not a acceptable practice.
Valet parking works fine,both in and out.
Best of all is breakfast room and breakfast itself.Room is absolutely marvelous,table settings in grand style,do not miss it!
Bottom line : do not expect moden amenities in ancient palace!Just enjoy it as is.

This is the place to stay in Florence! The most amazing location for being in the midst of Florence! Breakfast was absolutely the best so don't miss it. Great service & the rooms were luxurious & if it wasn't for Florence being an amazing place to explore I would have stayed in all day! Eat gelati at Grom & enjoy the great food at your doorstep!

We would definitely go back to this hotel when visiting Florence again. Not only was it within a stone's throw of EVERY major site in Florence, but the service was amazing and the room was exquisite and well appointed. It was definitely priced right.

My husband and I stayed here during our recent honeymoon and the hotel wasn't all that great. The best things about the hotel were the location and the wi-fi connection. The location was AWESOME and close to everywhere we needed to go. The wi-fi was fast and you didn't have to log-in more than once. Other than that, the hotel looks as if they started to renovate but then stopped on the first level. Everything is really outdated and needs a face lift. Our bed was two twin beds pushed together with 1 sheet over it which really wasn't comfortable for us to be next to each other. Also the water in our sink and the tub would not drain properly and it was like being in a pool of dirty water with every shower. I went down and complained but it was NEVER fixed. The guy came up and basically brushed it off. I would not stay here again.

We would highly recommend the Bernini Palace Hotel as it was so luxurious and matched Florence's beauty perfectly. The location could not have been any better and lent itself to a wonderful feel of stepping out right in the middle of all the action.
Our superior room was magnificent with chandeliers and opulent finest Italian linens.The breakfast was generous and served in an impressive room. We enjoyed the splendid bar area and my son loved all the biscuits and Easter eggs that were served complimentary. We had our dinner at La Chiostrina on our last evening and it was one of the best meals we had in Florence.
Aside from the beauty of the hotel itself; the staff were all incredible and helped to make our holiday one to remember for which we thank each and everyone of them for.

My spouse and I stayed here for three nights and have to say it's one of the best locations in Florence. Almost neighbours with the Uffizi Gallery, close to the Duomo, and all the other sites to see in Florence. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. One lovely young lady at the front desk was kind enough to share information for her hometown of Catania, Sicily where we would soon be headed. To top it off...when we arrived at our hotel in Catania there was a note from her wishing us a wonderful time in Sicily. The rooms were clean, comfortable and luxurious. The service in the restaurant was above reproach.

The hotel was wonderful and the price was great. We had four rooms for five days and each was one lovely. The rooms were clean, bright, spacious and well furnished. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was excellent. Great value & great location.
