“Amazing Accommodations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We stayed three nights recently at the Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo in Florence. It is located directly behind the Duomo in an old palace, and it is accessed on a side street named Via Dei Servi. The owner and staff were wonderful, and they upgraded us from a room to an apartment that had three rooms. The breakfast service comes with the rent, and the folks at the counter will help with anything you need. Give them 48 hours notice for just about any attraction, and they will likely be able to arrange it for you. A highlight for us was a trip that the hotel arranged with a private driver and guide, who took us out into the country to visit Villa Corsini, where we enjoyed a four course 'home cooked' meal, tastings and tour. The staff also helped with restaurant suggestions, and we were happily surprised. The bed was extraordinary too.

We moved into this hotel via lastminute.com after a fairly bad experience with another hotel in Florence and all I can say is that the difference was day and night. The room (I feel ashamed calling it 'only' a room - when in fact it was a suite) was wonderful and we faced out to the Duomo. It was quiet and lovely for sleeping and the bathroom was as big as some rooms in a hotel. Breakfast was delicious and there was a lovely lady waiting on you hand and foot - she makes the BEST cappucinos I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. Freshly made sponge cakes were also available with breakfast and the room you were having it in was magnificent. We were sometimes the only two having breakfast and it was lovely. The receptionist were all very lovely and very helpful and in general I would definitely recommend this hotel. It is a bit pricey but if you want to treat yourself like I did for my birthday then it is well worth it.

Room Tip: Room/Suite 9 was very nice - facing out to the Duomo.

I stumbled upon Palazzo Niccolini from a simple internet search for a good-priced hotel for a weekend trip to Florence with a good friend. We were thrilled with our choice. You can't beat the location, but it was wonderful to find such an intimate, personal hotel situated in the heart of a touristy area. The online booking process was smooth - I accidentally booked a single room online and wrote an email requesting to change this to a double room and received a positive response within the hour. Check in was flawless - when we landed at the airport and I turned on my blackberry, there was a message from the reception desk welcoming me to Italy and asking for the approximate time of our arrival at the hotel so they could ensure we were met. Our room was not one of the fancy ones shown on the website, but we were not bothered, as Florence is for exploring, not for sitting in your room!! All we needed was a comfortable bed (check), a powerful shower (check), and room to move around (check). Breakfast was wonderful. Fresh coffee, tea, juices, breads, lemon cake, yoghurt, cheeses, meats, pastries, and warm (!!) hard boiled eggs. Free wireless access was much appreciated. The second evening we were at a loss for a good restaurant and asked at the front desk for a recommendation. They took the time to ask us about the restaurants we had tried to book ("why did you choose these restaurants and what was it about them that interested you?") to truly understand what we were after. They ended up making us a reservation at an absolute GEM of a restaurant which was perfectly suited to our taste. They honestly could not have picked better! All told, we felt looked after, cared for and quite special throughout our stay. If you are looking for a souless hotel with 24 hour room service, go elsewhere! If you enjoy charm, you can't beat Palazzo Niccolini!

Comfortable hotel, centrally located - within walking distance of everything you need to see. The building has historical value - restored and adapted to present conditions, but with the charm of the past.
The suprise - every night on the nightstand you can find the poem of the day :).
In rooms you can find Florence guide and from reception you will receive detailed and usfull map ot Florence.
Very nice garden in backyard.
Very pleasant and attentive staff, ready to help at any time.From hotel you can book entry tickets . Ladies from reception will help you to organized private round tour in Tuscany, the price is slightly higher than other tours that are available, but you can stop anywhere i stay how long you want.
I want to thank all for great service and pleasant athmosphere.

This hotel is one of the best for location, service, friendliness and size that we have found in extensive travels in Italy, both business and pleasure.The staff is very helpful and rooms are typical of an elegant palazzo. The current members of the Niccolini family are on site and take a personal interest in maintaining standards. We also enjoyed the continental breakfasts in the salon and the view from our room, #10. If you want to experience living in a traditional and period home belonging to an old, noble Italian family, the Niccolini is the place to do it.

We only stayed one night but it was enough to enjoy the beauty of this hotel in itself and of its privileged location (right next to the Dom, the name couldn't be more more telling).

Gorgeous rooms, fabulously equipped in all senses: plenty of soaps, shampoos, shower hats, towels. Very comfortable beds, amazing decorations.

Personnel was extremely kind, although, as it seems now the custom in Italy, since we arrived late, smalls hotels tell not to have reception personnel any longer, so we were tended by the extremely nice and helpful waitress. But she made sure we had everything we needed and informed us wonderfully about everything.

The street was very quite at night, so you could sleep very well. Shower was magnificent. Breakfast up to standards for this kind of hotel and price.

Once in your lifetime, go to Florence (just seeing that Duomo is worth it) and give yourself the present of staying at this magnificent hotel. I have stayed in many nice hotels, but none like this one.

My sister and I did a lot of research to find a great hotel in the heart of Florence and we found a winner. The location was tremendous - in the very shadow of the Duomo! The room - or shall I say rooms - was fabulous. We had a very spacious suite complete with a sitting room, bedroom, and a bathroom bigger than my 2 baths in my U.S. home. The communications to reserve a room was easy, and the hotel owner and staff were professional, gracious, and helpful. This place has it all!
