Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Arrived on a dark wet evening (not their fault!) to a rather spooky entrance hall and immediate demand for city tax in cash where previous hotels had added it to the bill at the end. While we were there the front door mechanism broke so not sure how secure it was. This had been listed as a hotel on Expedia, but is actually just rooms, as is the floor below. No staff present after 7pm, no optional breakfast or room service or cashless as advertised. The woman on reception claimed they kept trying to make changes to their listings but the sites don't post them - however this should be their problem, not ours. It felt like a house when the removal men have taken away most of the furniture. The room, with fresco as advertised, had once been grand but was now very sparsely furnished with cheap stencilled furniture. No drawers at a useful height, the safe didn't work and there was nowhere comfortable to sit, and a peculiarly high bed I had to clamber on to - but comfy and clean once there. Useful fridge, generous tea/coffee provision, everything clean. The rocking bidet was a bit alarming but the bathroom was otherwise good. Our room overlooked the garden (of another property) and was quite quiet but street view rooms would be noisy. Perhaps we're just not hip enough for the cool, crowded Oltrarno district.

Read the reviews on Booking, which are from people who have actually stayed in this dump — which we pointed out to the nasty receptionist was listed as a four-star hotel and priced like one. The photos are wildly misleading. The garden view and entrance are for a private home; there is no outdoor space. The interior of the building is creepy and decrepit. The rooms are cheaply and sparsely furnished. Drawers were too small for the cheap armoir and left a gap of several inches. Shower was the size of a phone booth and made of cheap plastic. Bathroom tile was mismatched and there was not a single hook. Had to request adequate towels. Nothing to eat or drink, no services provided by reception. Received a plate of napkins when we requested a box of tissues from the very put-out woman at reception. I speak Italian and have been traveling in Italy for 40 years and never had an experience like this. We checked out early and refused to pay for the remainder of our stay on the grounds that we did not get anything close to the level of service provided and the receptionist repeatedly threatened to call the police. We invited her to do so, in Italian. It never happened.

Overall, it was just good. So there’s some pros and cons here. Pros: best location, great street in San Frediano with boutiques, restaurants, cafes, trendy area of town. Right above a coffee shop and bars. Next to Santo Spirito and the river. Big room, modern bathroom, a lot of space unlike many hotels in Italy. Very clean. Cons: the photos to advertise the rooms are enhanced and do not truly depict the atmosphere of the hotel and rooms. First impression after walking into the corridor was that it was eerie. We stayed in room 2 and felt that the main room (breakfast spread room in advertised photo) was also a bit eerie due to period, historic paintings and decor. The place overall could be more decorated more bright to enhance the vibe to feel more upbeat. As others said, it was noisy due to looking over the Main Street, but personally, it did not bother me. Overall it wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t my favorite and most likely wouldn’t stay here again.

Although it is perfectly located, we strongly advise against this hotel because you can’t sleep. From the room, you can hear the buzzer every time someone comes in and out of the building as well as the people chatting. Shame not to be able to sleep when you book a hotel!

Amazing place in a fascinating city. Very good location, on the side of Arno river which has better and less touristy restaurants and bars. Beautiful rooms, very helpful front desk staff. Valet parking so hastle free even though it is in limited traffic zone. No breakfast served, contrary to earlier reviews, but there are breakfast places near by. Only downside, we made sure to book a room with Aircon but it was still used as heating - our room was on the sunny side of the house, and we could not open the windows due to street noise below, but the majority on the colder side wanted heating so we couldn't use the Aircon to cool at night, only during the day.

If you’re thinking about this as a hotel - don’t. Palazzo d’Oltrarno is the ultimate experience if you want to feel like you are in a Italian movie. It wasn’t what I expected but I can’t say I didn’t enjoy it. It is located on the first floor of an old palace and has about 6 rooms in total. Reception is closed after 19h. Room was big and comfortable. Breakfast is similar to what you would have at home, traditional and simple. Also great location! Recommend!

Beautiful, large rooms and in the perfect location out of the tourist chaos! Our air conditioning didn’t work. In the height of summer this wasn’t pleasant at all. When we told the front desk, they said that they knew about it which seemed odd as then it should have been fixed. We also couldn’t open the window as our room was directly above a bar and was extremely noisy most of the night. We also found that tea cups weren’t cleaned/ replaced overnight in shared facilities, so the 2nd day there we had to ask for more in order to make tea.

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was superb. Got a bit confused on arrival as there is no hotel sign, just the name on a doorbell, but a helpful local soon sorted us out. Our room was large, spotless and comfortable and so, so peaceful. A true respite from the crowds and noise of the city centre and made to feel very welcome. Would definitely stay again.

Room #1 is on the street side overlooking a noisy bar that very much likes aperitivos. Staff offered me a refund in the evening to go and find another hotel, nice way to handle a client. Personnel is by the way not present on site, you have to call them on the phone for them to come and show up. Room is ok by reduced to the bare minimum. Location is good.

The arrival with our car was equally awkward: our car was picked up by a parking service on a square a few meters from the residence. The residence itself is located on the first floor of a stately palazzo, in the middle of the city with a garden bordering the Arno. There are only 7 or 8 rooms: large with original ceiling painting; the bed is very comfortable; bathroom is excellent. You have to provide your own breakfast, but there are great shops nearby. All sights are within walking distance and there are plenty of nice restaurants nearby. After 3 wonderful days like princes in this palazzo, the parking service also turned out to be an excellent service.
