We picked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. A deluxe double on the top floor facing the square provides a nice view and quiet room (stay off the small side street as it can get noisy). Walking distance to all of the sights. Fine breakfast. Never really saw many people at the lobby bar and...

We stayed at the Bernini Palace as members of a tour group. Our experience was outstanding in all respects. The room was large, well-appointed, and well-maintained. The included breakfast was excellent, and the breakfast dining area was particularly attractive. All hotel staff were friendly and helpful. For the visiting tourist, the location could hardly be better...immediately behind the Palazzo Vecchio...

Upon check in we were told we were upgraded...my mom almost peed her pants...we never get upgraded! I don't want to see what we were upgraded from, but I am sure it was absolutely a fantastic room too. Anyhow, we were upgraded to a great room. Only downside was we were not looking out over the city, but rather other...

The hotel was highly rated on trip advisor and I couldn't agree more. It is an old world hotel that is truly magnificent. The beds are very comfortable and the sheets are real linen. The turndown service and chocolates are a really elegant touch. While the room was not overly large there was certainly plenty of room .We faced the...

A great welcome for our first trip to Florence! We opted for a superior room which did not disappoint…superb...rather sumptuous and traditional in its decor with excellent bathroom facilities…beautifully clean with bed linen changed daily. Breakfast served in the beautiful Sala Parlamento is outstanding. The range of food available is impressive and service is supreme. The lounge bar is stunning...

I would not call this hotel a "luxury" hotel, it is a solid 4 star for European standards with a great posh and comfortable lobby and bar, and good service. The location is fantastic if you like to be in the middle of things, which we truly enjoyed. The bedrooms are small, and lack chair(s), the bathroom is nice and...

It's hard to beat being one block away from the Piazza della Signoria! This is a gracious old property in a perfect tourist location. The rooms are elegant, and one feels quite privileged to be staying in them. The property is undergoing a minor bit of interior renovation (for code compliance purposes), but in spite of that the place is...

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
