We spent 3 nights at the Palazzo, upgraded from "superior" to "wedding suite". We were greeted and hosted by owner Sra Daniela Agnelli, with whose charming and skilled assistance we made the most of our Florence stay. Palazzo Tolomei is not really a hotel; it really lives up to the designation, given as recognition, "Residenza d'Epoca". Our room - enormous, with 18 ft frescoed ceilings and a fabulous marble bathroom - opened onto a huge salon which we were invited to use as our own. The sense of hospitality was complete and we felt right at home. This is Sra Daniela's ancestral home and she is happy to talk about the history and artistic origins of the building and its rooms. True, as some reviewers have noted, this is not the kind of hotel with a front desk and a bellman - it is more in the tradition of the small pension, where you have your own key to the door opening onto a narrow street, but, after all, this is central Florence, and it fits right in. Five minutes after walking out that front door we were face to face with the Cathedral. Breakfast, included in our room fee, was provided at a nearby "osteria" and was traditional and appropriate. We plan to always stay at the Palazzo any time we are visiting Florence.
