Exceptional 10.0
Best hotel in Florence
We had a great time in this hotel - so good that we extended our stay. Hotel staff were lovely, room was huge, bed and pillows were comfortable, fantastic location and the rooftop has an amazing view of Florence! I would say, the only negative was the lack of a fan in the bathroom - air ventilation in the bathroom was not great. However, it wasn't a major concern. I would 100% recommend staying here.

Check for construction!
There was construction on the property that woke us up with extreme loud banging. The construction was not up to the hotel so they didn’t have control but also didn’t let us know that there was a possibility of happening. Eduardo at the front desk was very helpful and did his absolute best to accommodate. Just make sure that all the construction is done at the “palace”.

Never again!!
The hotel is a maze. You go up to go out. If there ever was an emergency, it would be a disaster. Room in a hole even though we upgraded. They are cheap in general. Paid for breakfast for two. Only wanted one not two and tried to take it back to the room for my wife. Ok the first two mornings. Last morning they stopped me and wanted another $5 Euros. I gave it back to them.
John, us3 night trip
Poor 2.0
Worst hotel in Florence
First off, we stayed on the “second” floor… which was 91 stairs (or a junky industrial elevator) up, so coming and going was slow and annoying. You will end up crossing the river for most of the things that you want to do, so staying on the north side of the river is probably a better idea. The staff was OK, but there were a couple people that weren’t very friendly, such as the restaurant staff... bringing me to my next point, the restaurant was terrible, and the breakfast was not good at all and was a rip off at €10. The only saving grace was that there was this little place 100 m to the north on the same side of the road epinymously named Gino’s Bakery, and Gino is the friendliest person in Italy, period. His pastries are delicious, and if you are going to stay at this hotel we’re anywhere nearby, you definitely should try them. Also, the air-conditioner in the room worked great.
