This place was among the available hotels listed in the RegalONE voucher I got for my birthday. Frankly speaking, the room's picture in the voucher booklet was not very attractive, but the location of the hotel (and the excellent reviews in tripadvisor) made us decide for it... furthermore, since there were no more standard rooms available at reservation time, we payed an extra an got a room upgrade, therefore I cannot say anything about standard rooms included in the voucher. Anyway, the place is really amazing! First, it is very close to Florence main touristic attractions (less than 15 minutes walk to the train station, the dome, the baptistery, the old bridge...). Second, the ladies that run the place are extremely kind, and available to satisfy your requests. Third, an most important, the palace is beautiful! Our room was incredible: wide, with wooden floor, four-poster bed, ceiling painted with a fresco of '500, table with expresso machine, fridge with cold beverages (included) and excellent red wine (extra)... In one word: excellent!
The only drawback, if you wanna find one, is that the place does not have a kitchen, so that breakfast is provided by a nearby restaurant (without any extra cost), though coffee and sweets are also available in the lodge of the palace.

In short, an excellent place that I warmly recommend if you want to really experience Florence, rather than just sleeping in it!

Room Tip: The room with the four-poster bed is very nice and romantic, if you are looking for something of this kind...

My husband and I arrived at the Palazzo Tolomei and from the time we entered the palace to the time we left was so beautiful. Daniela is a unique and caring soul who treats everybody like family and this was also felt with her staff. My husband was unwell when we arrived and without hesitation she was on her bike down to the chemist to get him antibotics. She suggested some wonderful restaurants to eat that were not your typical tourist ones. The room had great ambience and a calming feel. We both were sad to go as we could of had another week at least. We have decided to return to Palazzo Tolomei as this was one of our most memorable times in Europe.

The beauty of this palace, the wonderful welcome, the private but regal approach from the street as one processes to the rooms plus the fun cafe where breakfast is served all create a unique experience so much better than any regular hotel can offer.

A charming , ancient palace full of fresco wall and ceiling paintings some dating back 500 years. The faded grandeur is more than compensated by the extremely helpful staff and owner who can't do enough. Numerous very spacious and elegant reception rooms with books and music provided lead to the rooms and the 100. M2 bedroom suite we had for 4 nights. A little strangely furnished and not the best bathroom but extraordinary with a vaulted painted ceiling made for a former owner's wife as a wedding present. Just right as our honeymoon suite!

The hotel is very centrally located within a short walk of most attractions, but still remains calm and peaceful at night.



We would definitely stay here again!

This is definetly the most special place I have ever been to all of my life, And I will explain.
From the very first moment, We recieved a very warm welcome from Daniella and we immediatly felt at home, with her and with her excellent staff. The room is extrmely beatiful and special and you could sit all day and just stare at it. The size of the room is very very BIG. There is an excellent food buffe that you get a voucher outside the palace 1 min walk at Za'Za resturant.The location is excellent and close to all of the most important attractions. l was so attached that I cried when I left the room. If we ever return to Florence, there is no other place I would rather be than in these wonderful palace.
Best room that you can order to make your trip unforgetable! Palace is really what it is...

Although there is nothing to add to all the positive reviews: The Palazzo Tolomei really matches all descriptions made here. Daniela and the girls are absolutely warm and welcoming people, they make you feel at home. The location is just a short walk from SMN station and all the citys highlights could easily be reached. The rooms are gorgeous and that's it. Do yourself a favour, book a room. It's worth every cent!
