3.0 out of 5.0 Piazza Santo Spirito 9, Florence, FI
This hotel features a rooftop terrace and a bar/lounge. Traveling on business? Take advantage of the free WiFi in public areas, express check-in, and valet parking. Express check-out, luggage storage, and laundry facilities are also on offer.
The location is great, on a very quiet street in Oltrarno, away from all of the tourists, and close to Santo Spirito restaurants. The apartment we had was very modern and clean, with a small kitchen. The bathroom was nice, although the shower was a little small. The air conditioning was very good with the hot weather. This is a private residence with multiple apartments and no 24 hour staff, so you need to check in/out during office hours or make special arrangements. The staff was extremely helpful and gracious. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Horrible experience. We booked this hotel 4 months before the trip, we received a confirmation email from Travelocity with a very nice room photo included. When we arrived, they said we reserved an apartment which was not the same as the picture shown in the reservation confirmation. The apartment had 2 rooms, air conditioning only in one but was not working. It was very warm (34ºC, 93ºF) and very humid with a strong humidity smell in the air. I requested to repair the air conditioning or replace it (it was portable) but when we came back a few hours later, we had 3 fans in the rooms, period. The apartment was very dark, only one window for all rooms. We opened it for a few minutes to get fresh air at 9pm but it was in front of a Bar's terrace full of people drinking and smoking so we had to close it again. We were traveling with our 2 kids so at 10PM we had to start looking for a different hotel for that night that cost us a fortune since the city was pretty packed of tourists. We were charged 28€ for the parking and arrived at 12am to the new hotel after packing everything again and our kids and us were exhausted and frustrated. Nightmare in Florence i would say. See the photos of what was promised versus reality.
5.0 Torre Di Bellosguardo is a magical place. We felt so lucky to have found it.
A beautiful, unique setting, gorgeous views and gardens, thoughtful staff. This historic villa stirred our imagination and gave us an escape from the heat and congestion of Florence. A short taxi ride down a winding old road that cuts through the hills around Florence allowed us to zip into town for museum trips, shopping and dinner. We loved it.
5.0 Absolutely beautiful hotel with wonderful staff and great location
The room was breathtakingly lovely, as was the whole palace. The staff are all friendly, attentive and couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast is also excellent. The hotel is convenient for all the main attractions of Florence and the views from the roof terrace are stunning. I would recommend the Palace to everyone.
