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.
