Well this hotel is a really nice hotel in a very handy location. The breakfast room was great but no restaurant, there is a bar which serve frozen heated up meals, pretty poor really. The room was amazing very spacious and everything you need. Most of the staff were polite especially the lady who served us at the bar, and...

Dear guest, we thank you and we will keep in mind your complaint to do our best in future. Our American Bar is not a restaurant and serves simple dishes for clients that prefer a quiet location instead of crowded restaurants in the surroundings. We apologise if you didn't find a feeling with our front desk staff, normally very appreciated...

Though not within the center of the city, this hotel has wonderfully well maintained modern rooms and is a great value. Staff were incredibly helpful recommending sites to see and calling for restaurant reservations and calling a taxi the day of our departure. The major sites are a 15-20 minute walk. Breakfast with nice selection of hot and cold foods....

On the POSITIVE side: renovated room, excellent style, brand new bathrooms with massage shower, attentive choice of materials (marble, wood, ...). Swift check-in and check-out, personnel very efficient and helpful both at reception and breakfast. On the negative side: if you have problems with stiff mattresses, you might want to consider the following issue: I was in room 300 and...

My wife and I traveled to Florence last July and stayed at the San Gallo Palace Hotel for 6 nights. For our 3 week vacation in Italy we slept at 5 hotels and this was the best one. We booked it through Expedia and were eligible for a VIP upgrade which the hotel automatically provided without us even asking. The...

The San Gallo Palace was the hotel I used for a holiday with my sisters last August. The hotel was very clean, the restaurant was good with a varied menu and the bedrooms were of an excellent standard considering this was a three star hotel. The only thing negative I have to say about this hotel is its location. In...

My room at this hotel was very pretty. Great bathroom with a big shower. Some staff very friendly, others not so much, but very capable and efficient. Great value for the quality of the rooms. I would most definitely return. The only downside is that it is a fifteen minute walk to to the Duomo and other main sites from...

Good hotel - value for money - nice rooms. A bit of a walk from the main sites and rather isolated in terms of things to do in the evenings - but this was all known when booking. Would certainly reccomend to friends and family.

Excellent hotel and good service. Only drawback, it is about 30 minutes walk from the tourist sites and it is too quiet during the night so we (myself and my daughter) preferred to take the taxi on the way back. Breakfast was good and consistent and the staff was very helpful.

The hotel was immaculately clean and the staff were extremely helpful. The hotel was very quiet and that was probably due to the time of year. The hotel is a pleasant fifteen minute walk to the city centre. The hotel could not be faulted and four stars is about a fair reflection. The television channels on offer could possibly offer...

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
