“Wonderful Stay .... Rita was incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

Hotel Palazzo Guadagni was a great place for our family's annual trip. We had 5 couples and really enjoyed to large bedrooms (the Air Conditioner in the room was wonderful), the family friendly which was almost home-like environment and the great location. In the evening, after a long day of site seeing, we would gather on the large verrenda with our own bottle(s) of wine and snacks to enjoy a quiet evening.

I usually would not consider booking a 3 Star hotel however this hotel was better than most 4 star hotels at which I have stayed. The reason they are 3 Star is that they do not have a large staff to carry bags, do not have a restaurant, and entry into the hotel is different (remember its Florence), etc. However, the breakfast was very adequate, the rooms were very large, the rooms were extremely clean, and the bathrooms sparkled!!! One additional comment I would make is that during our 18 day Italy trip the best sleeping we had was during our 3 night stay at Palazzo Guadagni.

With all that said, I must thank Rita for all the help she was during our stay. Rita and all the staff were very wonderful. The owner of this small hotel must take a lot of pride in hiring very friendly and helpful people.

We had an enormous room on the 1st floor with a lovely view over the square. The staff were freindly and helpful. 10 minute walk to the centre - plenty of restaurants around

We stayed in florence for 2 days and it was excellent. The hotel has a charming and local architecture with views of the entire city. The room was very large. The location is near the river and pretty convenient to start walks towards to the city or to get taxi.

my husband and I planned a two week trip through italy. We battled whether to have comfort or authentic hotels during our trip and went with 'authentic' when we were in florence and we were THRILLED with Palazzo Guadagni. It was quaint and family run with amazing service. We had room 8 with an amazing view of the duomo that was to die for. i think our favorite part and probably one of the top 3 memories of our entire trip was sitting on the huge wrap around porch at Palazzo Guadagni and drinking wine staring at the tuscan countryside and overview of the city of florence.

Location is also great- not too crowded or loud since you're over the river and you MUSTeat at Osteria Spirito across the palazza - our best meal in italy was there - great food and prices but be warned portions are bigger than we had anywhere else.

Room Tip: Room 8 for a view!! we didn't have any issues with noise or anything and if you want to wake up...

I had a very pleasant 2-night stay here. The big, secured entrance doors and then the 3-floors up (stairs or elevator) to reach the reception can be daunting, but once you are given the passkey, it's quite simple. The room was spacious and clean and the breakfast was very sufficient. There is a lovely terrace where you can sit anytime, overlooking Piazza Santo Spirito (there can be a bit of street-level noise, but really not that bad). Several nice restaurants are located a few steps away.
It's location near the Pitti Palace is perfect. . . you find yourself on a slightly less hussle-bussled side of the river, but it's two minutes to walk and cross the Arno to the heavy tourist areas.
