This hotel was a gem of a find! Centrally located yet also off the tourist's path, this hotel was wonderful from check in through departure. We had a room with a balcony off the pool and spent any downtime during our trip admiring the gorgeous view and sun on the patio. The staff was all very friendly (and spoke English, which was helpful since my Italian is very poor) and the accommodations were modern, sleek, and comfortable. The in-room bathroom was one of the best I've had in Europe! The cell phone that they have that you're able to take with you while out in the city was a wonderful touch. I could rave on this forever, but many thanks to the team at this wonderful hotel for making my stay pleasurable and wonderful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the pool on the first floor - can get access to a patio!

This hotel has a great location near the train station and the Duomo. But the biggest selling point may be the backyard.....yes, even in the middle of Florence there is a huge manicured area with tables, chairs, chaises, etc. to relax and take in the fresh air. Or have breakfast or lunch outdoors.
The rooms are great and the staff is super....especially the dining staff. The hotel is still fairly new so everything still works!!! Would definitely stay here again

Palazzo Castri 1874 was lovely from the moment we walked into the lobby. We were greeted by a friendly front desk staff. We were a bit early for our check-in so they held our luggage for us and we at an AMAZING lunch in the courtyard of the hotel. There we had THE best Ragu dish we had our entire stay. We spent a lot of time in the lovely courtyard. This small hotel is such a gem within a very busy city. Each day as we came back to the hotel after exploring we felt we were out in the country escaping the noice and bustle of our surroundings. Our room faced the courtyard as well so sleeping with the windows open was perfect. The hotel was immaculate. The staff were lovely and helpful when ever we needed anything. The rooms were perfect. We had a king bed! Service was impeccable.

We stayed in a number of hotels on this trip and Palazzo Castri's breakfast was THE best. And our favorite of all of the hotels. Each morning you are greeted with smiles and wonderful coffee and wide variety of wonderful items to start your day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to return next time. I highly recommend !! The hotel is located around the corner from the famous of Mercado Centrale, which is a lot of fun and an easy walk to all of the city attractions.

This hotel was wonderful! In a city of hundreds of hotels, this one was a short walk to all of the main attractions in town. 5-10 minutes from shopping, 10-15 from the Arno River and 5-10 min walk to the train station.
The staff here was very friendly and helpful (especially Emma). The airline lost our luggage in transit to Florence and the front seat staff were vigilant about calling throughout our stay to assist in locating it. (It did eventually arrive)
The hotel itself is modern and clean. It has a lovely inner courtyard complete with a pool and attractive landscaping. The daily breakfast (included with our stay) were very tasty and plentiful.
The hotel room itself was a bit tight but maintained very well. It was clean and comfortable. The best part was the bathroom. Wonderful, wonderful showers. Waterfall heads with great pressure and heated towel racks.
We highly recommend this hotel.

What a great hotel! Friendly staff, clean and updated rooms, TV channels in all languages, turn down service. This hotel is in the middle of everything! Quick walks to all the major sites. Robes, slippers, water at the bedside, refrigerator, ample space.

We stayed Oct 2 to Oct 8th.

Great and friendly staff. The only thing I would like to see changed is more variety at breakfast. But that's not really a complaint, just a suggestion.

Rooms are quiet and we had an amazing view of Florence and the Duomo. Could not have asked for a better experience. We will stay here again.

Highly recommended!
