“Awesome in Florence! Look no further”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2012

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!

We were more than pleased with our choice of the Palazzo Guadagni, after a long long flight from San Francisco which got diverted to Pisa...we arrived exhausted but hungry after 9pm, and were directed only steps away from the hotel, to a charming outdoor cafe/restaurant, and happily consumed pasta and vino, before falling into bed and a great sleep. The room was very large very high ceilings, frescoes, charming furnishings, and comfortable bedding. The breakfast was perfect and we took it out on the terrazza in the mornings and enjoyed the views and the great start to the day. We were en route to a wedding in Tuscany, so sadly only had two days there, not nearly enough, but will be back again.
Highly recommended for ambience, location, staff and price.

This hotel is spectacular in all areas: from the spectacular guest rooms with frescoes on the ceilings and antique furniture to the lovely terrace from which you can sip wine and gaze upwards to the Tuscan hills. Owners, Laura and Ferdinando, go out of their way to be welcoming and accommodating to all their guests. There are many local restaurants to sample. Gusto's pizza (the best in Florence) is just a few steps away. Also, casalinga is very very good. Make sure you ask the hotel to make reservations at casalinga as people line up out the doors waiting for a table. Quattro leoni is a little farther away from hotel (3-4 block walk) but well worth the journey. Ask for Byron as a waiter. He is excellent. Also, be sure to make a reservation.
We were in Italy for our daughter's wedding and the staff at the hotel were most gracious. Planning a destination wedding from the USA was quite a daunting task but the hotel was extremely helpful and allowed me to personally select each room for my family in advance.
Laura, you are fantastico! We will see you in Octobre!

Wow what a great hotel, location is perfect with it being an easy walk to the centre of Florence and only 20 mins walk to the train station too. The hotel has a beautiful balcony which is great at breakfast and in the evening too looking out over this lovely city. The pretty square below with its restaurants and bar has a lovely local feel to the place, and great to sit by the fountain after a busy day walking around the sites with an ice cream from the shop opposite.

Our room was huge with roof top views across the city and the bathroom was huge too...with a massive bath which is perfect for soaking away the aches and pains of your day, also new fluffy towels too.

All the staff were very helpful especially the young guy at breakfast and on reception ...all apart from an older grey haired man who was unable to add our postcards to the outgoing mail of the hotel...but apart from that small inperfection the place was great would definately recommend this hotel again and if we do return to Florence will definately stay here.

Thank you for a lovely stay :-)

What a delightful place. Peaceful and carm with views you see only in movies, from both our room and the common balcony area. I loved the location which was away from the peak tourist spots but still in easy walking distance of everything you want to see. Staying at Hotel Palazzo Guadagni was the best decision we made in our two week trip to Italy. Thank you.
