This is a gorgeous new property which is just a stone’s throw away from the Duomo and a quick walk to all other important locations like Uffizi gallery, Accademia, Santa Maria Novella train station, Perche No! gelateria, and Gustarium (fab pizza place).
Directions emailed from Samuela, the hostess, for how to get to the property were very clear. We loved how close it is to the train station. The elevator in the building is relatively big for European standards, and modern. You can also take the stairs up to the property as well.
My husband had the junior suite with balcony from October 1 to 4, 2019. We loved sitting on the balcony in the evening reading and listening to the city sounds (like the piano music from a nearby restaurant). The view to the Duomo and the surrounding terracotta rooftops is a bonus. The room itself is spacious, has high ceilings, and is clean and very modern (the light and A/C was turned on only when your key is put into a slot). There was a kettle, minibar, built-in safe, places to hang your clothes, and hairdryer. The in-suite bathroom has his-and-her sinks and the most comfortable and roomy rainfall shower. The room was very quiet once you shut the balcony doors.
The hostess of the property, Samuela, is kind and lovely. She found a few laundromats for us and recommended some delicious gelato (Grom) when my husband and I asked. Her assistant/employee Alessio is also very friendly and nice. Both speak English fluently and were available for any questions we had.
Breakfast was served at a nearby restaurant, Konnubio. I liked but didn’t love breakfast there. I liked the scrambled eggs, meat and cheese, and the different types croissants (with Nutella, brown sugar, apricot jam) are really good. We also loved the coffee at Konnubio. But we didn’t like that a lot of the times the fresh fruit had bruises and what looked like rotting bits (yuck), and some good items like a yogurt/whipped cream parfait were limited and therefore gone within one or two hours of the start of breakfast.
So if anything could be improved, I would say the breakfast, but that isn’t enough to bring my rating down of the hotel, because the breakfast was generally good and of good value.
My husband and I would definitely stay at Palazzo Dei Conti again. The central location, helpful hosts, the gorgeous room and included good (but not fantastic) breakfast make it worthwhile.
My husband and I stayed here and it was even better than expected! The room was a great size, the bed very comfortable, the shower was amazing. The travel products they give you to use were way better than usual accomodations! The shampoo and conditioner were tea tree ginger, or something of the sort, and smelled amazing. The place is obviously newly renovated with modern decor. I loved the decor and ambiance of the place. Right by the train station and duomo. Thank you for a great stay in florence!
We stayed here for three nights in September and we had a terrific time! The view of the Duomo from our room was fabulous! The bed was the most comfortable we had during our two week trip to Italy. The staff was very helpful with directions and restaurant suggestions. Gorgeous room, convenient location, and even a delicious breakfast!
We booked this hotel, because wanted a room in the city center, with plenty of space to relax. And that's exactly what we got! Really nice new room, big bathroom with some nice bathing products. Also we had a balkony with a view of the duomo. Bteakfast served in the restaurant across the street was very good. If we come back to Firenze, we will(!), we will book this hotel again!
This place is really great. We had a large bedroom with a king sized bed. The rooms are all recently remodeled. The A/C worked great! The bathroom was new and had a rainfall shower and toiletries. The location was really convenient, only 1 block from the Duomo. You can walk to everything, including the train station.
The breakfast was included and was great, in a nice restaurant across the street, with eggs, cereal, cold cuts and cheese (of course!) and a terrific selction of baked goods. The owners and staff were terrific and their recommendations for restaurants were fantastic. Cannot say enough nice things about this hotel. We will be back!!
