“A special, unique place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

This is a very unique place, an extremely beautiful traditional Italian house. This is the place to stay if you want to feel the true spirit of Firenze. From the wonderful welcome by the incredible host to the stylish, traditional and glamorous bedrooms, this place is a true treat.

It's a real departure from your traditional hotel, it's a different experience - a great experience. Also very well positioned, right in the center of Firenze. A great place.

Daniella and her wonderful staff ensured our stay in Florence was unforgettable. The accommodation is superb; the rooms are beautifuly decorated, spacious, quiet and exceptionally comfortable. The location is perfect - an oasis in the city centre.

i dont usually write reviews but this place was just fantastic.... from the start when me and my wife got there , they were amazing... the girls at reception are great and very helpful... the place is gorgeous, just like if not better than the pictures. Daniela the owner is the cutest italian lady, super friendly, outgoing, super accommodating.... she even gave as a little farewell card when we left... it was by far the best place we stayed in our european trip, regarding how warm and nice they are.... Daniela makes us feel like family! thanks so much for the good memories Daniela!

This is a stunning place to stay. Daniela, Daisy, Carolina and all of the staff combined with the palazzo itself make it very special. The apartment/suite we stayed in was truly delightful with 2 rooms and a balcony with rooftop views (only 1 small downside: the bathroom floor was slippery when wet so take extra care). There is an elevator if you cannot manage the stairs and nothing is too much trouble for this team.
Daniela's recommendations of tours and places to eat are all 1st class. We loved Florence all the more for having stayed at Palazzo Tolomei.

Everything about our stay was perfect, Daniela and her staff make you feel like royalty. All the recommendations were amazing and our trip would never have been the same experience without the input from the staff. We still had our privacy but the warm welcome made you feel like you were staying with your favorite family members. The room was spectacular even better then the pictures we will be returning and would only ever stay at this hotel, you miss out if you ever stay anywhere else while in Florence. Highly recommend to anyone. Thank you so much Hotel Palazzo Tolomei

This is nothing short of a museum! Daniela, Daisy and Clara were like old friends and treated us with such warmth and a welcoming manner after our busy and rather stressful trip to Florence from Rome. The other hotels in Italy we stayed at paled in comparison and we kept comparing everything to the Palazzo Tolomei. Of course no other hotel in Italy measured up to our stay at the Tolomei. It really is a pity that Bed and Breakfasts cannot advertise as freely as the chain hotels in Italy, that's why I feel I should write a review here as well as on the booking site and my facebook! Nobody should miss out on this gem, nay, diamond of a hotel!
They welcomed us with a much needed cup of coffee and plate of croissants. Then gave us a genuine tour of the hotel. Daniela has such knowledge of the art and architecture of not only the hotel itself but of the whole of Florence. I appreciated that very much as I was an Art History major in Uni.
My daughters genuinely liked our hosts, which is no small feat for someone trying to impress two teenage girls. And we were so sad to leave. However, we will definitely be returning and for a longer stay next time!
Thank you Palazzo Tolomei!!!! See you soon!

Room Tip: Our room was perfect as I am sure all rooms there are. You can't go wrong as they are all beauti...

Arriving at the 'Palace' was like stepping into the beautiful home of a very dear friend, Daniela and Daisy have this wonderfully natural manner, allowing you to feel totally pampered and special, as though you are the only guest.
If you don't stay with Daniela, you are missing an absolutely wonderful, unique experience.
The interior of the building was simple, grand, yet stunning and very tastefully decorated, a serene and spacious place to stay, and perfect to come back to after a day of sightseeing in Florence.
Being very central to Florence was a distinct advantage, easy access to all of the museums, galleries etc.
The 'office' doubles up as a 'refreshments area', sumptuous purple sofas, white leather sofas, an amazingly high ceiling painting with a stunning fresco. This room was a social area, always topped up with tea/coffee and local Florentine delights, the fig cake was divine!
Tea/coffee facilities also conveniently available in the room itself.
Towels beautiful and fluffy, changed daily, large and very efficient shower, despite the age of the building.
A short walk for breakfast at ZaZa's, great choice of food, served promptly by very friendly staff, loved the marmalade!
Daniela suggested a restaurant called Cipolla Rosa for our last night, it has to be the best freshly cooked pasta I have ever tasted, prices were very reasonable, I would definitely recommend this place.
I do suggest that if you are staying 3 days or more, you do consider the 70 Euro ticket for entry into museums etc, we decided against it and actually soon clocked up a little more than this in the end. It is obtained from the tourist office, a short walk from the hotel.

Just a word of warning about arriving in Florence, keep your money safe, carry it in front of you at all times, sadly I was victim of a pickpocket, stupidly using a rucksack.- Absolutely no reflection on this hotel, just typical of cities all around the world, and I have to say, Daniela was deeply sympathetic over my plight, directing me to the local police station and checking if I needed any money.

I can honestly say, if I return to Florence, I would not dream of staying anywhere else, why would I? I am also considering bringing my mum over next year for her 70th birthday.
Thank you Daniela and Daisy
