“Wow. ”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

This is an absolute gem of a hotel. Tucked off the street opposite a Louis Vuitton!
It's quaint but majestic.
We arrived in the morning after previously checking out of another hotel and our room wasn't quite ready. But Leonardo checked us in and took our bags for safe keeping and showed us on a map where things were. He was so helpful and kind which you don't often find anymore.
When we returned about an hour later (I needed to change my shoes)
Our room was ready and we were taken up.
It was spectacular. It's beautifully decorated and laid out.
The location is brilliant as it's walking distance from everything. It's right on the main bit for shopping (have read some people say it's too near the high end shops, can't see how that's a problem) the savoy hotel is close by which is fabulous for dinner (another review) and it's about a 10-15 minute walk away from the museum which is home to the statue of David.
I'm just sad I only got to spend one night here, I hope to return one day because it really is a beautiful hotel.

After our stay at the Palazzo Vecchietti it will be difficult to stay anywhere else when visiting Florence or any other city for that matter!

The hotel is a beautiful historical building and is located a short block from the Piazza della Repubblica, a terrific location, close to the shopping district and other attractions.

We stayed in a suite as we traveled as a family of four. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable and well appointed.

An extraordinary breakfast of pastries, eggs, bacon, meats, cheeses, fruit and cereal was served each morning on the third floor in the breakfast room. You can add fresh honey from a honeycomb to your tea or to the top of your pastry. Cappuccino and espresso is made upon request. It is a perfect start to your day.

The members of the hotel staff and concierge were top notch and very hospitable. No request was too small. The staff offered help with shopping and restaurant suggestions, dinner reservations, where to grab a nightcap, to where we could find the best place to watch the World Cup.

Finally, a special treat that my family enjoyed each day was the afternoon offering of Prosecco wine and cookies in the hotel lobby. My husband and I enjoyed the Prosecco, the kids loved the cookies!

Treat yourself to a stay at the Palazzo Vecchetti, you will not be disappointed.

This was a lovely property, and the people who work there try very hard, but please note that it is not a full service situation. There is typically one person on site, so if you need luggage help, and it is the 100 pound petite young lady, you are somewhat out of luck. And if you need your TV to work, you have to hope the one person on duty fully understands the cable. The only other thing to mention, is that it is extremely noisy in the middle of the night, due to it's "great" location next to the Plaza Repubblica. The young students seem to enjoy staying up all night there, and several nights I woke up at 3-5 in the morning with the screaming, singing, and motorcycle riding. There is really no lobby, no bar, etc.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not front on Strozzi

Dear 3220mom,

we really thank you so much for your time spent in writing your experience in Palazzo Vecchietti.
All Guest reviews, especially the discerning ones, are extremely important to improve quality standard and to understand if our job meet Client’s satisfaction.

Palazzo Vecchietti is a cozy luxury hotel dwelling with only 14 individual spaces (12 guest-rooms and 2 apartments) with no bar and no restaurants. Probably your expectations were for a different establishment!
Being classified as an historical building we aim to offer a private, intimate, close and personal approach to our clientele, well plunged in the peace of our XVth century lobby, circumstances which are difficult to achieve in centrally located hotels in Florence.

We are deeply sorry about the loud sounds coming from the streets through the night. We would like to notify that all our rooms have double-glaze soundproofed windows, but unfortunately the mentioned noises are out of our control.

On the other hand we did not hear a word from you. We also have Suites on different side of the streets and some rooms with internal courtyard view. It would have been our pleasure to help you in any matter, even if we very well comprehend that moving room it’s not pleasant.

Giving always high consideration to guests comments, we take the opportunity to repay you offering an upgrade to one of our quiet Apartments, upon availability, during your next stay with us.

Hoping to welcoming You and your family again in our establishment, the Management and all the Staff remains with kindest regards.

Great location next to Piazza Della Repubblica. All points of interest are within 5-10 minute walk.

Excellent reception into a non-traditional lobby -- more like a living room. Rooms were amazing. Large, comfortable with many amenities. Our room, Petrarca Penthouse, had its own rooftop terrace.

Breakfasts were tasty and well served in communal dining room. Waitstaff and clean staff were way above par.

Definitely a great place to use as base to explore Firenze.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here for one night at the end of June. It was a unexpected treat bc we were suppose to stay at Hotel Brunellschi but apparently they had a flood the night before causing them to book us Palazzo Veccheiti for one night. I was completely blown away when Luca escorted us to our room. Everything about it was simply gorgeous. The spacious room had high end finishings and cathedral ceilings to enhance the dramatic look of the place. The bed was super comfortable and the bathroom was top notch with a huge encloses glass shower. Breakfast the next morning was equally as impressive with a nice spread of items to pick from. Also, this property is in prime location which is a huge plus! I was delighted with everything from beginning to end.I would love to stay here the next time Im in Florence. My only regret was that we only got to stay one night I kinda wished Hotel Brunellschi wasn't available the next night either so we would get another night at Palazzo Veccheiti :) Stay here and you won't regret it!

I just spent 3 nights at palazzo vecchietti on my first trip to Florence with my fiancé.

It was absolutely perfect in every way. The location is amazing and a 5 min walk to the uffizi and duomo and ponte vecchio. The rooms are luxuriously appointed, very spacious (some other hotels we considered were half the size) and have everything you expect for a 5*hotel.

The fabulous thing about the suites is that the staff and concierge service is brilliant and you feel that it is a private home away from home feeling with discreet and boutique property feel. The staff were always extremely personable and friendly and made a big difference to our stay in Florence with excellent recommendations and service with a warm smile. In the weeks leading up to our arrival the concierge were so helpful and responsive with planning logistics and restaurants via email which was fantastic.

If you don't like big hotels this is perfect as there is no fussiness just discreet luxury.

Only small criticism is hard beds (maybe I am used to soft at home?) and that is it!, if you want room service they don't have it as it's not a hotel but why would you want it in Florence when you have the most AMAZING dining options on your doorstep (try camillo trattoria and cibreo!).

Thanks palazzo vecchietti for aug warm Italian hospitality and we will definitely stay with you when we visit again. :-)

As you very well mentioned Palazzo Vecchietti is a small property located in the center of Florence, few steps away from main attractions and famous restaurants and Trattorias.
We very much appreciate your comments, in particular those about the service provided from our staff and we consider your opinion helpful to grow up and continue our precious work in the hospitality even better.

As you had the chance to taste it, we just serve breakfast in the morning in our ‘Vespucci’ 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

We brought our family to Florence in the Spring and had the pleasure of staying at this great hotel. Rooms were very spacious and well appointed with all the amenities you would need. The breakfast was wonderful and the staff could not have been nicer and accommodating . Everything is within walking distance with a good location. It can be a bit noisy at night with the street noise but you can also request an interior room. Florence is just a busy city so that was expected. Would highly recommend this hotel and thank you to the staff for a wonderful stay.
