“Elegance! Beautiful Place in Heart of Florence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2011

The place is exactly as depicted on the web site and in trip advisor. (http://www.palazzotolomei.it/) Its very nice -- in fact eerily nice -- you dont expect to spend the night in a palazzo that is museum quality. In fact between the the life sized 17 century marble statues and elaborate frescos that adorned the Palazzo, you felt a little strange when they give you the key and say, here is how you lock up at night. Your immediate reaction is, wait dont leave me here alone! It's like the movie "Night at the Museum" or being asked to lock up at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Everything in the pictures on the web site is exactly as it is. The rooms and spaces are that large.

Seriously, the place was beautiful and spacious, the air conditioning worked fine and bathrooms were great. The place is centrally located in the heart of Florence. Fabulous pizza place across the street. (see picture).

Daniella is the owner and she was fabulously accommodating. She is a real life Contessa and has opened up one of her Palazzo's in Florence (that's right ONE of her Palazzo's) because its evident that she thoroughly enjoys being with people and wants to share her art treasures with them. Daniella arranges for you to have breakfast at a neat outdoor cafe around the corner named Za Za. Daniella seems to be known by everyone in Florence. She can recommend where to eat, how to get in and out of the museums, what to do etc. She was fantastic.

What a beautiful residence! Steps from the San Lorenzo market and the duomo. We stayed here for 3 nights in the 'white room'. Daniela is a lovely hostess. Sparkling clean, comfy beds and a great shower, not to mention all of the little treats included in the kitchenette. My sweetheart propsed to me while we were in Florence - Daniela gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate. No detail was left to chance. We are going to stay here again in September 2011 while on our honeymoon. Daniela even remembered who we were!

The place is wonderful and our room was one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Daniela, the owner, is very nice and it was a pleasure to be her guest. We hope we will be able to come back in the future!

I'd read many reviews about the Palazzo Tolomei before booking our room. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and I when I viewed their website, saw the photographs of the frescoed ceilings and the spacious rooms, then read reviews on Tripadvisor about the extraordinary service from the staff, I decided this was the place to stay. Well, the reviews were spot on. Daniela and Daisy were without a doubt the most gracious and caring hostesses that my husband and I could have asked for while staying in Florence. They gave us their most romantic suite, since we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, and even left a bottle of wine in our room to celebrate. We were given "special" breakfast treats at the delightful chocolate cafe a few doors from the Palazzo. I unfortunately caught a cold during our stay and Daniela was ready to rush me to the local Farmacia for medicines. I felt such genuine hospitality from Daniela and Daisy--it is so unusual-- that we felt like family, but we were living in a most unique and beautiful place.

Room Tip: Just ask Daniela and Daisy.

While the apartment itself is beautiful, it was impossible to sit and enjoy the lovely garden or simply open the garden doors or windows without getting swarmed by mosquitos inside and out. We had to purchase many repellant methods and all failed. Difficult to sleep without air of any kind. The bathroom plumbing (shower and toilet) was not regularly reliable. Daisy and Daniella are kind and gracious, however, we didn't see them but for check-in and out. Also, there was no complimentary wine or water as stated. Again, this is a beautiful and spacious apartment but overall not worth the rate paid.
