Lovely Florence hotel
My husband and I stayed at the San Gallo Palace for several nights and loved it! The hotel porters were all very kind and helpful. The room was spacious, and we enjoyed the king size bed and larger bathroom than our other rooms in Europe have had. No mini bar in the room, but a vending machine by the elevator. The breakfast each morning was yummy and very worth purchasing the booking that included it. This hotel was a smidge outside of the city center, but still walkable if you’re up for it and not in a hurry. Sometimes we took a cab if we were in a rush for time, other times we walked to the city center. The hotel bar attached stayed open late and was nice to stop in for a drink after dinner and already be at our hotel. We just charged them to the room and payed at checkout. Easy peasy.

Fine hotel, great location, outstanding service
This is my second time staying at the San Gallo Palace and my overall experience was excellent. Most importantly the staff is extremely, warm, welcoming and eager to help in any way they can. While everything was impeccably clean and orderly, and the room (actually a suite which they upgraded us to) was clean, comfortable and spacious. I also really like the fact that the location, while within a relaxing 15-minute walk or quick taxi ride to the major tourist attractions, is still far enough away that you get a real sense of local Florentine flavor and life. There are some excellent restaurants, trattorias and such on almost ever street in the area. My only comment, and I'm really hesitant to call it a complaint because it isn't, is that the decor is really starting to show its age and could really benefit from a remodeling and upgrade. For some, maybe that's a negative and I include it in the interest of full disclosure. BUT, I reiterate that this in no way detracted from my overall comfort level and opinion of my stay and, all things considered, would recommend the hotel to anyone.

Great stay! Fridge was old and didn’t seem to work and had an awful smell but they mentioned they are changing all of them soon. Housekeeping barged in my door even with do not disturb on the door. I found out that they have the service and do not disturb on same card different sides. Technically my fault however I think they need to have one or the other.

Fantastic Hotel!
We enjoyed our stay at The San Gallo Palace Hotel! The hotel was clean, smelled great, staff was friendly/helpful and available 24 hour. We stayed only 2 nights out of our 2 week Italy trip but this was our favorite hotel primarily for the location, comfort, and convenience. The hotel had a large buffet style breakfast, was delicious and had staff on hand to offer assistance. Staff also helped us book a tour and schedule transportation to the tour bus, the tour took us out to Pisa to see the leanining tower, San Gimignano, a Chianti winery and finally Sienna. Long day to say the least but very responsibly priced. If you’re planning to stay their, I recommend a restaurant near by called Perseus, best steak I’ve ever eaten!
