“Great little Florence hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

Great central location, easy to find from the train station. When we arrived, the front desk asked, do you have a map? I answered no, so he reached under the counter, pulled out a map, grabbed a pen and nottonly pointed out where to go, circled certain sights, drew arrows, circled the piazza to visit and explained the best route. During our short stay, the staff were very helpful and deserved praise for their effort.

In a good location if arriving by train as only 5 mins from the hotel. No problem to leave our bags in early in the day to save carrying around until we checked in. Hotel and room were clean, room was basic but bad was ok. 10-15 minutes walk gets you into the centre of Florence. Checked out earlyish (7am) and a few problems to sort out payment for the room due to language problems and processed own card payment because it was easier and we had to get to the station for our next train.

Room Tip: Take some insect repellant and pay cash.

The Hotel Palazzuolo is in a great location for walking everywhere. Not far from the train station and all the attractions. BUT we stayed on the side that faces a questionable street with people who were outside partying and making noise till late at night. If I didnt have earplugs and my daughter an mp3 player with headphones we would not have gotten any sleep!!
Also to get into the hotel you have to climb a set of stairs. With heavy suitcases that was not much fun! Breakfast was just cold cereal or packaged pastries. The place was old fashion and quaint but not want we wanted or expected. I would say it was okay. It was clean though.

We stayed for 5 nights at Palazzuolo Hotel in a triple room and we had no problem during our trip. A good night sleep in a clean room is more than enough for us after a long day in Florence.
No need to upload any photos, as the ones already showed by other people give the exact picture of the hotel.
We had a cold breakfast included. This one can be improved in order to satisfy the expectation of all guests.
The hotel is very close to S. Maria Novella train/bus station, easy to get buses to PISA Airport, Siena, San Gimignano and other places in Toscana.

... the hotel is in a great location walking distance to train and most sights.... very basic older room.. good shower.. dont expect much communication from staff.. steep stairs to walk up with luggage!! :/ was very noisy in my room.. I had to... try.. to sleep with ear plugs in.... if you are a heavy sleeper and want cheap accommodation in the 'heart' of the city.. for a short time..it will be ok...if not.. maybe pay a bit more for elsewhere....

We stayed here for 3 nights on the tail end of our honeymoon in Italy. Great location, free breakfast, big room. Nothing fancy. Would recommend it as it was a short walk to the city center, which was great! We had an awesome time in Florence, partially due to being right in the city!

Pretty much the only thing this place has going for it is the location. It is in the center of Florence, right near the train station. The bathrooms have no separate floor, so if you take a shower the whole bathroom floor will likely be flooded. They are nice. On the downside (again) we had to drag our luggage up 2 flights of stairs.

We ended up in a room with 2 twin beds, more likely the fault of the booking company.

They use physical keys. Not my favorite way of doing things.
