“Romantic, but not only”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

Wonderful place to stay in Florence. You feel like at home, while being 3 minutes walk from the Duomo. People there are not serving or helping you, they are taking care of you. Suites are excellent (try the one wit a terrasse at the top of the hotel). Atmosphere is deliciously mixing a true old palazzo in Florence and the modernism.

Traveling from Hawaii, the staff and management made every day "a special day in Florence". The suites were absolutely gorgeous and always freshened up. The huge oval breakfast table allowed us the opportunity to dine with guests from other countries, and the food was delicious. The structure and design of Palazzo Vecchietti sets you back in time, and yet the rooms have all the state of the art necessities. This hotel is located in the heart of Florence, walking distance to museums, cathedrals, restaurants and shopping. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owner of this hotel.

Dear guest,

thank you for the time spent to write your experience in our Hotel!

Palazzo Vecchietti is a small property located in the center of Florence, few steps away from main attractions and famous restaurants and trattorias.

As you had the chance to taste it, we just serve breakfast in the morning in our breakfast room located on the third floor or if you prefer you can order a room service.

Kitchenette, Nespresso Coffee machine and large rooms give to our Guest the impression to stay in a Florentine House but with all comforts and modern amenities.

We sincerely hope to have you again at Palazzo Vecchietti
Yours faithfully

It has been the best value hotel we havestayed in Florence (my wife and I stayed in a quite of few of Florence hotels as we have been visiting the magical city ~ twice per year for the past 20+ years). The location is simply perfect and just cannot be more central - it is next to Palazzo Strozzi, Via Turnabouni, Piazza Della REpublica, etc. When we booked the hotel, we read reviews indicating that there are nosiy rooms (room 208 or 209). Florence, like any vibrant European cicty that has a number of colleges, is often noisy - it comes with the territory if one chooses to stay in the city center. However, our room on the 3rd floor, was exceptionally quiet. Great bedding, nice in-suite kitchen, fairly recent updates of the entire building, good breakfast, welcome cleanness of the rooms and common areas - everything was really well cared for. The room price per n ight was a bargain for such hotel. My guess, if it would have an inside restaurant - it would be 30-40% or more higher priced. Finally, Lucca and his collegue have been eager to help and were helful (especially Lucca) whenever we need. Every afternoon guests can have a glass of Prosecco with cookies - a really nice touch. Highly recommend, without any "IFs" or "BUTs".

You'll step back into renaissance Florence architecture and ambiance when you enter Palazzo Vecchietti. This quiet, beautiful hotel is just a heartbeat away from city center and the hustle and bustle of Florence. The rooms are simply breathtaking and the bathroom is state of the art. Marble abounds everywhere in the hotel, just as it does throughout Florence. Breakfast is served on the third floor in a beautiful large dining table; one can start the day with delicious pastries or just a cup of fresh brewed coffee. Breakfast is a time to greet the other lucky hotel guests.

Room Tip: The staff is so very helpful at Palazzo Vacchietti. You can't go wrong with staying here. I lo...

We had the Machiavelli room with a charming terrace upstairs. Room was very spacious and nicely furnished, very clean. The room is located just beside the breakfast room, which did not bother us, but should you not be OK with this, you better choose another room.
Breakfast was excellent and staff was very nice and attentive.
The location is brilliant, situated near all tourist sites in Florence. Everything is in walking distance.
It is a really special and interesting place. We found it rather charming living in an authentic palazzo.

I spent four nights at Palazzo Vecchietti with my family this summer and we absolutely loved it. While a little non-descript from the outside, the hotel is centrally located which made walking to everything very simple. The property is very modern and spacious and the service was among the best we have ever experienced. Ritz Carlton has nothing over this place. Whatever the question or request, however big or small, they were completely at our service and always came through for us. The breakfast was very nice as well. We have already recommended Palazzo Vecchietti to a number of our friends. You will not be disappointed.

The hotel was in a great location, located centrally to all of the places we wanted to visit. The room far exceeded what we expected. Staff was responsive. Only major drawback was the street noise at night that interfered with restful sleep.
