Beautiful boutique hotel. The room was a decent size, the bathroom was large, the shower was powerful. The complimentary breakfast was great, a good selection of hot and cold food. The beds were also comfortable.

Our room overlooked an indoor courtyard, so not great for a view.

The spa area contains a large sauna, large steam room and a large jacuzzi. The jacuzzi could have been hotter. It was possible to have massages in the massage rooms just off the spa area.

The hotel could not have been in a better location. Just moments from the shopping area and hte river. The bar was lovely but did not have much atmosphere, better to head over the road for a pre-dinner drink.

I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Dear TravelBug47648,
We thank you very much for your positive review and suggestions. As for the Bar, I think it is because the Hotel location, that is, Guests prefers to have drink in Piazza Strozzi or Piazza della Repubblica instead of have in our Bar, which is "empty" all the time!
Thank you also for recommend us to all your friends and hope to welcome back in the next future,
we remain with all our best regards,

My teen-aged daughters and I spent four days in Florence. The Golden Tower was a fabulous central location - walkable to EVERYTHING. The breakfast was nice, the rooms were comfortable but what made the hotel special is the excellent staff - from the desk staff to the restaurant, they were charming, courteous and professional.

Dear rometohongkong,
Usually when a Client come back in the same place, it sounds "good" and, of course, for us, too. When the same Client come back again for the third time, it is more than success for us and hope there will be 4th, 5th and so on... We like your title: "still excellent". Yes, we are so proud to meet "still" the expectations of our Guests.
All our best till next time,

We stayed for 3 wonderful nights and I can't say enough about this hotel. Recepton staff wonderful, room gorgeous, location fabulous and spa very relaxing after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping. We travelled with our 20month old baby and the baby cot was as delux as our bed which is really lovely for a change as a baby cot always seems to an after thought. We would definetly come back....and would love to stay longer next time.

This was my second stay at the Golden Tower, and this time I stayed much longer- five nights rather than two. The location was great- very central to everything, and right next to the Palazzo Strozzi, which is having a great show of Sargent and his circle, which was the reason we were in Florence- (we loaned some paintings to the show, so being next door was ideal-the show is fantastic, and really a great reason to visit Florence in the next eight weeks!).
Pros to the Golden Tower: Location, great staff, breakfast, quiet rooms and great sleep.
Cons: no gym, which would be fine for 2 nights, but if you are staying longer would be nice-especially since they advertise a Spa. The spa is not really a spa by American standards-
a nice whirlpool, very lukewarm-not hot enough to really be relaxing- and a sauna and steam room, which were very nice- but in my mind not a real spa. Definitely not worth the extra charge they charge for this facility.
All in all, a very nice hotel in a great location.

Dear tripali,
double thanks, for coming back and for the review. We use to say in italy, there no 2 without 3, so we hope to welcoming back for the third time.
As I am sure you can imagine, in Italy, and expecially in Florence, a medieval town, the spaces have another dimension different than in USA, so does for Golden Tower Hotel. We are the only one with, even if little, a Spa inside it and with, even if little, a beauty center, able to do various body and face treatments.
As for cost, this one is included booking a deluxe room , or Junior Suite, or Suite.
We look forward to welcoming back again and meanwhile, we remain with
our best regards,
antonio pellegrino - general manager

We stayed here for 3 nights in early Oct 2011. The location was wonderful, easy to walk to all sights and restaurants. The room was also very nice, with a great bathroom. The only complaint was the view from our window was not ideal, as there was construction going on at the building across the street. But that may be gone by now. Overall a wonderful location and if we ever return to Florence we would stay here.

Our first trip to Florence and this hotel fully met our expectations. It was exactly as described, luxury boutique hotel in very central location, a few doors from Palacio Strozzi. Bedroom excellent, very good breakfast and staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. Strongly recommended.
