Golden Tower Hotel & Spa
Ranked #15 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 April 2014

This hotel name doesn't conjure up the beauty of Florence, but the position, service and beautiful design and furnishings make this the perfect choice. A no through road in the elegant area of Florence makes this a tranquil spot within easy walking of designer shopping, a myriad of wonderful restaurants and bars, and Florentine tourist sites.
Breakfast offers a great choice for all tastes. Could not be better .Also has excellent spa facilities if that is to your liking.

Room Tip: Room 302 was perfect for us. Sumptuously furnished with marble en suite and large shower.

We stayed for the extended weekend, it was not our first time at Golden Tower. Although located in historical centre, easily reached by car. Coming with good previous experience, this time they surprised us with the room-upgrade to suite. Simply beautiful, furnished with touch of class, High bed and linen quality, excellent bathroom. Thank's, we loved it.
Friendly stuff, helpful with local advice. Perfect location, shopping or visiting most sites within easy walking distance. Although rather expensive, this is where it pays off. Spa is rather small, but quality service.
In summary: not a budget hotel, but worth the price - you do get, what you pay for. Perfect choice for our purpose, we'll be back. Soon, I hope.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street may get noisy in the evening.

Just returned from three nights in Florence. We stayed in room 504, one of the deluxe tower rooms. Beautifully furnished with great attention to detail. A lovely bowl of fresh fruit on arrival and complementary Prosecco. The staff were very helpful but what really makes this hotel is its location. It's no more than five minutes from all the sites and is a wonderful quiet oasis from the hustle and bustle. Our room was very quiet and very comfortable, if a little on the small side. The bathroom was fitted to the highest standard. The spa is small, but when we visited it was not particularly busy. The breakfasts were buffet style with a great range of meats, cheeses and pastries. Although this hotel is not cheap it acts as a very good demonstration of the fact that you do get what your pay for. Not for travellers on a budget, but those in search of a magical location for a special occasion will not be disappointed. Florence is a truly wonderful city and I recommend this hotel unreservedly.

We stayed at this hotel two weeks ago based on the reviews we saw here on tripadvisor.com. We were not disapponted at all. Room and bathroom were big. We had a problem with wifi in the room for two nights and they finally fixed it the last night we were there. As one reviewer has said, it can get noisy late at night if your room faces the street/alley. We also can't seem to control the temp in the room so we had to open the window to let some cool air in. Hotel is close to everything so it is very convenient. Breakfast was included in our rate and it was pretty standard fare.

Dear pestman,
thank you very much for your positive review. We are glad you spent good time with us and sorry for the inconvenience about wi.fi but as explained it was due beyond our control, that is the connection was stopped by our supplier. As for the noisy in the square, as we are in the very downtown location and in one of the beautiful square in the world, it happens that sometime is full of life. Anyway, our windows are soundproofed and keeping them closed the noisy disappear.
Hoping to welcome you back, we remain with our best regards,

Unflexible. I had booked 2 rooms, and when our friends had left a day early I was hoping I could use that credit to stay another night but they would not budge on their cancellation policy.

Can also be quite noisy at nighttime, and the spa is tiny.

Dear Guest,
I was wondering if you have ever asket to Canadian Air or any Air Company the possibility to use the cancellation of the flight of you friend to book another flight the day after, Forget it ....
In the hotel is the same, you cannot use the cancellation of your friend to postpone your check out date. The only difference is that with hotel you can take revenge putting a bad review on Tripadvisor instead of reviewing about the Staff, the services, the breakfast, the location, about the hotel in general in order to help other guests to choice in which hotel to stay in Florence.
I was also wondering if you have ever asked for a refund to Expedia (which get billion dollars of commission from hotels worldwide) the one you booked with...Forget it!!.
It is a shame to be penalised only because we have applied the rules which your friends have accepted at time of reservation.
Despite the penalty, I hope your stay was good.
Best Regards,
antonio pellegrino

Part of my Honeymoon trip was Florence & i stayed in Golden Tower for 3 nights. Their staff were amazing & very welcoming.

The rooms are big & bathroom was great and big

Their spa is excellent and you may reserve it from 8 pm - 9 pm

Breakfast buffet is tasty

They have valet parking for 28 euro/day if your'e interested to visit florence by car

The hotel is excellent & its worth every euro i paid for

I rate it very good because the water in shower wasnt warm enough. That was the only negative in this hotel

If i have the opportunity to visit florence, i will go back to Golden Tower

There is little I can add to what was said by previous visitors. We booked the Golden Tower Hotel as all reviews were so positive . It's a fantastic hotel in a fantastic location and fantastic staff !!!!!!!!! We visited Florence many times and stayed in a different hotel but this hotel is by far batter and we look forward to staying there again in the future.

Room Tip: Our room on the third floor in a side street was very quiet
