My wife and I just returned home from a two week vacation in Italy. We visited Florence from June 20th through June 24th and stayed in the Hotel Palazzo Guadagni during this time. Look no further! This is the place to stay. The Palazzo Guadagni is located on the Piazza Santo Spirito in the Oltrarno area across the river from the heart of Florence. We chose this location, and was not disappointed, to be able to enjoy the complete culture of Florence and experience areas other than the busy downtown area. The walk from Palazzo Guadagni was a short 5-10 minutes to the Ponte Vecchio bridge and on into the heart of Florence. The Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens was just two short blocks from the hotel. Many restarants and trattorias on the Santo Spirito square. Excellent dining at the Casalinga Restaurant just around the corner from the hotel. The Uffizi Gallery and Accademia were a very short walk from the hotel as well.
What really makes the Hotel Palazzo Guadagni are the staff employees such as Rita and Atish. Upon our arrival, no hesitation on checking our luggage and taking it directly to our room (#15) upstairs. They both were outstanding each morning in preparing our breakfast and bringing my wife and I freshly brewed coffee in a pot with cups to our outside table on the beautiful terrace area. Outstanding breakfast with many choices to choose from. My compliments and sincere appreciation to both Rita and Atish for making this a very memorable stay.
In the evening on the terrace with a glass of wine in hand made for a beautiful sunset to end a long day after walking and touring the city of Florence. The view outside our window each morning and evening was unbelievable. The Duomo and city center were absolutely beautiful each day of our stay.
No hesitation here for next time in Florence. I would recommend the Palazzo Guadagni to anyone visiting the Florence area and we will be staying there again when we return.
Thank you Hotel Palazzo Guadagni for the wonderful memories in Florence during our stay!
