Although the hotel is a little out of the city center, it is definitely within walking distance and there are plenty of public buses to take you to the center in the nearby bus stop. I had reserved the deluxe room because it has a jacuzzi bath and being that it was our honeymoon, we needed a few days to relax. We had stayed in some of the finest hotels in Italy including the Rome Cavalieri, The Excelsior in Naples, and the Molino Stucky in Venice and so I was a little concerned about staying in a small non-large chain hotel and to my surprise, it was our best stay. Lucas greeted us with a smile and congratulated us on our getting married and thanked us for choosing the San Gallo as our hotel of choice for our honeymoon. We remembered that I had requested the deluxe room with the jacuzzi and he upgraded us into one of the suites with the jacuzzi. What a delightful surprise that was. After having a terrible stay at the Excelsior in Naples where they wouldn't even offer an upgraded to which I was entitled for being a gold member and the manager wasn't even willing to offer breakfast or any other amenity for the inconvenience or for choosing them from my honeymoon, it was definitely unexpected to being upgraded just because. The suite had a small living room area, a humongous walk in closest, the largest bedroom in Italy with a King size bed and the best more relaxing bathroom I have have ever been in. The jacuzzi was very enjoyable as you can imagine after a long adventurous day through Florence but the shower also had the side massaging nozzles and it was a real treat. But the best of the hotel would have to be the food. They offer buffet breakfast in the morning and they offered everything you could probably ask for inlcuding an assortment of breads, jams, yogurts, cereals, cold cuts, pastries, fruits, and cheeses. Delicious. Room service was great. The food was delicious and surprisingly afforable at about 10-12 Euro for a large dinner plate of food and 6-7 euro for desert. The best part of my stay was that the suite had a large terrace just for our room with a small table and two chairs. We bought a candle in the city and ordered room service and had the most romantic candle light dinner ever. The San Gallo Palace made our honeymoon that much more pleasureable and the front desk was very accomodating to our every need. Thanks for a very pleasureable and romantic stay.
