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.

Such a treat to escape busy Florence. Our room which overlooked the garden was nicely furnished, very comfortable and so quiet. We enjoyed the lovely spa on our last night. Breakfast was delicious and they even made a takeaway breakfast for us on our last morning because we were leaving early. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great location. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Florence.

The hotel is a top notch oasis in a crowded and busy city. The dinners and staff at the Flirentine Cafe treat you like royalty. We were not disappointed during our three day stay. If we come back to Florence one day this is our place.

Rooms were beautiful, spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was great. Felt like we were guests in an Italian Piazza. Garden was lovely. Did not use the pool or spa but it looked beautiful. Easy walk to Duomo.

Our three night stay at the Hotel Palazzo Castri 1874 was thoroughly enjoyable. All staff that we met showed a 'yes, certainly, we can arrange that for you' approach that was most pleasing. Our room was clean and comfortable with soft, springy beds and with a beautiful view of the peaceful, well manicured gardens. Breakfasts were plentiful and of good quality. Afternoon tea with cakes was a particularly generous touch. We appreciated being able to sit under shelter on the garden terrace during inclement weather. When we return to Florence we would not consider any hotel but the Palazzo Castri 1874.

Disappointing recommendation from our travel agent. Absolutely did what was asked- find a clean hotel in central Florence for under $250/night. But, what you get is a postage stamp sized room. We couldn't even turn around, so upgraded to "suite", for 90 extra Euro/night, just to have room to put down luggage and not step on each other. That blew price point. Understaffed with mostly sullen workers with poor English skills. Not all, but most. One nice person in food service and one competent person at front desk who didn't appear until checkout. Temperature controls at front desk. You can't control from room. Suffocating room with no a/c availability in winter. Ask for a fan for some air movement. Food not good. Buffet breakfast in loud, crowded, cacophonous space. (Buffet food at Hilton Garden Inn Rome airport was way better, if that tells you something.) Stark white interiors designed to maximize noise. Not our cup of tea, but not terrible either.

Responded 7 Mar 2024
Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to handwrite the comments regarding your recent stay on Tripadvisor.com. We remember you and your wife very well and receiving this kind of review leaves us unpleasantly surprised. We had the chance to speak with you on your check out date, when you explained to us that you were not satisfied with your stay with us. The reservation was made by your agency, but you were unaware of what was booked for you until you got to the hotel. You told us that you used to stay in a more classic hotel with high ceiling, rich decor while our Hotel is elegant but minimal. According to your opinion if you had the chance to see our hotel before coming, you would not have chosen to stay here at all, as it doesn't match your idea of style. Regarding your comment, we would like to mention that we take pride in offering a diverse and high-quality breakfast experience with seasonal offerings from local suppliers. We are sorry that you did not report your disappointment during your stay with us as we could turn your negative impressions into positive ones. Our hotel is equipped with centralized heating during the winter season, you can either control the temperature from the room or you can ask the front desk for assistance. Our team usually receives high praise for its friendliness, professionalism and smile. In our Team we have people from different cultures and nationalities, we believe that your opinion in this matter is too harsh. In conclusion, we genuinely apologize for any inconveniences you experienced during your stay. Your feedback is valuable to our continuous improvement. Warm regards, Teresa Loprete Front Office Manager

The hotel is new, well decorated and the breakfast is great. The staff was very kind and they have a super cute cat in the reception. It is close to some of the main attractions such as the mercado municipale and the Santa Maria del Fiore church but next time, I plan to stay in the other side of the city close to the brand stores, galeria uffizi and ponte Vecchio.

Harpenden, United Kingdom12 contributions6 helpful votes
I had high expectations before arriving due to the good reviews on here and the site I booked through, and in all honesty this hotel surpassed my expectations. I don’t think the pictures do it justice, it really is a beautiful hotel and could easily pass as a 5 star. It’s a beautiful hotel which you could easily walk past without noticing it is there. The building is decorated and styled beautifully and the garden is a lovely space. The rooms were throughly clean and modern with great furnishings. We only had a classic room so I expect the more expensive rooms are even nicer. We had spa access with our room, and if you like a spa I would highly recommend adding this to your room. The spa is beautiful and it’s the perfect place to wind down after a day exploring. We didn’t eat in the restaurant other than breakfast, which was lovely. However the restaurant and menu did look good. The reason we didn’t dine there is we like to explore and try as many different places as possible. The staff were all great and couldn’t do enough for you. Nothing was too much trouble and they all greeted you with warmth and a smile. The location of the hotel is excellent, all the sights are within a short walk. I cannot believe how easy it was to get to from the airport either. Take the T2 tram from the airport to Unita (takes 30 mins) and the hotel is a 5 minute walk. Tram costs under €2 each so a very cheap way to get to and from the airport If we ever visit Florence again I will book here again, and would recommend it to anyone

We just completed our second stay at Palazzo Castri after our first very pleasant experience several years ago. We are happy that we chose the hotel again! The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the food (including the breakfast) was delicious. The hotel is very conveniently located within walking distance of the train station, the central market and the main tourist areas (e.g. the Duomo, Ufizzi Gallery, etc.). The hotel features a spa and beautiful outdoor garden area to sit and relax after a long day of walking the city. We will definitely return to the Palazzo Castri in the future!

Palazzo Castri is the place to stay at in Florence. The hotel is amazing, smells wonderful, and the staff are lovely. It is a short walking distance to most attractions but still in a relatively quite area. The spa is great, I would recommend if you are hoping to relax after a long day touring around.
