We found the staff at Palazzo Guadangni as friendly and helpful as any we encountered on our recent trip to Italy. We stayed in room 5, which is on the main floor and looks out upon the square. We were apprehensive when we were told to close both shutters and windows tightly to keep out the noise (and found complimentary earplugs by our pillows!), but it turned out not to be a problem. The square was indeed lively and noisy our first night, but it didn't affect us in our room.
The hotel is in a good location, about a 3 minute walk to the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, and maybe 5 from the Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi. Less than a 15 minute walk to the Duomo. And, we were able to roll our suitcases easily to/from the train station (15 minutes), the only problem being the cobblestone streets and the toll they take on a suitcase's wheels.
All in all, I would definitely recommend Palazzo Guadagni to anyone looking for a comfortable hotel in an accessible but not overly touristy area.
