“A perfect visit to Florence!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We stayed at the Palazzo Tolomei last week and, thanks to our host, Daniella, had a magical experience! The room was amazing with a full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and a covered porch that looked out over the rooftops of Florence. Church bells wake you each morning. Original frescos on the ceiling of many of the rooms of this centuries old palace where Raphael once lived. But the best thing about the Palazzo Tolomei was Daniella. She booked us reservations at restaurants that American visitors wouldn't find on their own or get seats on busy weekend nights. Mostly locals eat there, not filled with American tourists. The food was amazing! The hotel is a very short (less than 5 minutes) walking distance from the Duomo (the center of town) and just another 5 minutes to any major sight you'd want to visit in Florence. This palace is Daniella's home and very quickly, you'll fell like it is yours as well -- if only for a few nights. Don't miss it!

Beautiful hotel that makes your feel like you are truly in Italy. The staff makes you feel like family. They are welcoming and warm. This is a unique and wonderful hotel. You will be happy if you book here. The hotel was centrally located and easy to walk everything Florence. Hotel includes coffee in your room and free breakfast at a nearby restaurant. Also, they have pastries in the morning.

Wonderful stay at this hotel. The top floor room has a view that is worth it!

What a treat to stay at Palazzo Tolomei! Welcomed warmly with high regard for our needs (we arrived late and night and because we let them know of our late arrival made very kind accommodations for us). The rooms are large, the common spaces uniquely Florentine and the staff - classy cool and informative. Well located, nice touches like coffee, tea and sweets. The room is well equipped to bring home snacks from the lovely market close by! It was our first trip and the great staff at Palazzo Tolomei made it a fantastic time, Grazie D, M and D!

I called in to the hotel in April to enquire about staying there when I was coming back to Florence for another visit. I found the staff most helpful and they showed me one of the beautiful rooms. The reception area alone is beautiful and the welcome was like family.. I am certainly looing forward to staying in the future in the Palazzo

Room Tip: they only have a small number of rooms so book well in advance

We stayed three nights in Palazzo Tolomei and will definitely return there. We did not live in a room, but in an apartment, with kitchen, dressing, bathroom, one room for the child, one room for the parents. The way to the room is a museum. The reception is a museum. The inner court is the inner court of a Tuscan medieval palace. The other family lived in an apartment preceded by a video room and a palazzo dining room. The reception is an exhibition of fine arts. Silence. Discretion. Good taste. Daniela Agnelli (that family, yes) is a wonderful host. Upon arrival you are served with Chianti wine and home made cake. Maintaining excellent links with other Florence businesses - special treatment dining at their recommended locations we were served Prosecco on behalf of the Palazzo Tolomei. Rich Italian breakfast 150 m from the Palazzo. Always in the search for best options for the guests in terms of guided tours, Florence cards, transfers, etc. 1 minute walk from San Lorenzo and Medici Chapels, several minutes walk from Piazza Republica or the Dome. Parking can be arranged at a neighboring garage - they took care of cancelling the fine for entering the restricted area. The marks for the quality of service and stay are not incidental - there is the knowledge, wisdom and art of doing tourism in Florence that is rewarded with tourists gratitude, appreciation and ranking.

Let me just say that Daniella is the most wonderful host. She's honest, and genuinely nice to her guests, not just because she's required to be. Our room was beautiful, and although everything exudes luxury, and fairy tale, you can still feel homey.
I would recommend Palazzo Tolomei to anyone!

Grazie di tutto, Daniella, sei meravigliosa!

Looking at the different reviews that have been written already, I do not know what to add as everything that has been said is true: great location, beautiful interior, Daniella is so warm and friendly you feel at home immediately. She listens to all your needs and is ready to help for everything. We had a beautiful room, which was so big and with beautiful ceilings you look upward all the time. You really feel like in a movie. You have everything you need in the room, a bottle of wile is offered, tea or coffee are available and you can eat some delicious pastries during the day. Do not hesitate to ask her for good restaurants. Daniella knows the best.
