We loved this hotel. The room was so nice and the staff was absolutely wonderful. It is a little bit of a walk to the center of Florence, but we enjoyed the walk. The breakfast was good and the staff had great recommendations for restaurants.

A little farther out but you'll save some money and get good long walks to/from the city center. It was a good choice for the price and a little off the beaten path. Great restaurant nearby Antica Trattoria da Tito best meal I've ever eaten.

The Hotel personnel is friendly and alwys at your disposal. Their reaction is swift and effective
The housekeeping has still to catch on the level of the front desk. But rooms are clean .
The location of the hotel is just on the "limit of the walking distance" to the main touristic places. But the environment is quiet.

Excellent service, cosy bar, staff very friendly and always ready to help - strongly recommended. No restaurant for evening meals- breakfast only, but they do reasonable snacks from the bar.
Didnt experience the pool.

Stayed for 1 week at the San Gallo. Rooms were nice, clean but small. The walk to center was 15 min so be willing to walk but for those active no problem but for first time Florence visitors I would suggest closer to center.
Few restaurants near by that were good and local.

Trying to choose a hotel in a foreign city can be a very daunting task and a gamble. We chose this hotel due to the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We spent 4 nights here and enjoyed everyone of them. The breakfasts were better than the usual Italian style with plenty to choose from and the room was very good. Pleased it had thick windows and air con though as the streets can be noisy with traffic.
The beds were a little hard for us but other than having to ask for a kettle and cups etc, nothing was a problem and dealt with efficiently with a smile.
The breakfast staff were really genuinely pleasant especially. What was a bonus to us was the young lady on reception who highlighted all the main attractions and places of interest for us on a map. That was service. Towels and pillow cases changed daily. Spot on. I really would recommend this hotel to you. It is a little away from the main area but only a 10 minute walk gets you there. There are a few restaurants and cafes nearby, but be aware of a bit of 'localism' about some of them. You are but passing trade. We did walk out of one cafe as we felt ignored. I detract. Good price, good hotel. Well done

Wonderful stay! Large breakfast to choose from, incld. The room was the perfect size for 2. However the location of our room we could hear other rooms showers and toilets running. Location? Thin walls? The beds were harder that at home, but softer than other hotels we stayed at. We ordered a tea pot for the room and extra pillows and they were delivered timely. Would definitely stay again! Paola and linda were a great help at the front desk. Linda walked us to our nearby massage appointment, so we wouldnt get lost.
