As aptly stated by the other reviews, the Golden Tower is indeed the perfect hotel to stay in Florence: the location cannot be beaten, it is perfect! The hotel itself is very charming offering modern amenities in an in an old world atmosphere and the staff are warm and professional. The only suggestion I have for them is to have better pillows, from the 6 pillows in my bed, I could not find one that suited me, but this is a minor issue. I will be back and have already recommended to my friends.

Room Tip: I was on the 2nd floor 204 and unfortunately on one night I was entertained by either a party or dis...

I did a lot of research for hotels in Firenze before going for Golden Tower, and had very high expectations. Well, it turned out that the hotel was at least as good as expected. The location is perfect, and the place itself is great. I had quite a few requests, one being a silent room (inner yard), and all other requests were met, too. Excellent beds, btw! We enjoyed the spa, breakfast, complimentary minibar etc as part of our package, and also had some good massages. The staff was great, and the helped us with restaurant and museum reservations, as well as general information about the city.
And no, I can not find anything negative to say about Golden Tower!

Room Tip: The rooms towards the inner yard are quieter. A/C is noiseless in all rooms.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Golden Tower for one week during our trip to Italy. It is an outstanding hotel: the rooms are gorgeous, the staff is beyond helpful, the breakfast was excellent. The location of the hotel is convenient to all of the sites in Florence and walking distance to the train station for day trips. The staff was helpful when we attempted to learn our way around the city and with securing reservations at the popular sites (The Academy, The Uffii)
I highly reccommend this hotel. Should I return to Florence, I would stay there. Its location on a quiet street, yet it is in the center of the city -- an added plus. Stay at this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade if one is available!

My wife and I stayed at this boutique hotel in late May. The Front Desk staff, spa, breakfast, room and location were all better than was expected. Local Tour Assistance, including restaurant selection and local tour options were very good. Location was on a quiet block in the center of the higher end of shopping but was convenient to all. Price structure for the rooms is highly competitive and the hotel offers a sound alternative to the high priced chains located in the City. Of particular value was the complimentary refreshments in the room refrigerator. No gym, but the spa area and the spa services were above average for a boutique hotel.

Room Tip: We were not in the Tower Room but were provided with a Deluxe Room on an upper floor. Modern

This is a smaller hotel in a good area of Florence. The service was good. Our room was lovely, apparently we were upgraded to a Tower suite and it had 2 stone walls that added wonderful authenticity to room. The furnishings were beautiful and tasteful. The breakfast provided lots of choices and service. We also used the spa which provided a tranquil and wonderful break after sightseeing. One night there was noise outside but it was Friday and really didn't disturb us. There also was construction on new condos directly across from our room with lots of early morning noise. The hotel is close 15-20 minute walk to the best attractions. Service was good provided help with restaurants and helpful information on area. The room was spotlessly clean and clean towels/linens were provided daily.

Room Tip: I would ask for locations away from condos being built.

Dear hotelchic18,
yhank you so much for your review.
Yes, you were accomodate in one of our "tower deluxe room", situated in our "medieval tower" (XII century) where used to live "Filippo Strozzi" before building the "Palazzo Strozzi".
Regarding the refurbishing work in front of us, we argue with them everyday and even us look forward to the end.
We hope to welcome back again,

Upon arrival, we were given a room upgrade to their best and biggest suite (without asking). This was a HUGE suite with a massive living room that had a gorgeous arched cieling. The bedroom was also large, and the bathroom was fit for a king/queen. They gave us champagne and a fresh fruit platter. The spa is AMAZING. The breakfast was mediocre, but I did not care because I like to get up and get moving without being weighted down with a huge buffet. The lobby and breakfast room are absolutely gorgeous. There is a very nice business "center". The location is just adjacent to Strozzi Palace, whish is immediately next to both Piazza Republica and the famous shopping avenue, Via Tournabuoni. There is a great "bar" accross the street with everything from Gelato to champagne. The shopping and scenery are at the front door. The hotel is located on a tiny little alley way, so it is quiet and secluded. It's a short 5 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio. There is a fitness center "Klab" located a 5 minute walk from the hotel, and you can buy a day pass. Overall, this was a truly fantastic hotel.

Regarding the Breakfast, as you may have noticed, unfortunately we do not have so much space to exhibit even if on the buffet you can find fresh and high quality products.
We really hope to welcoming you back in the very near future,
