“Very good hotel at a beautiful location”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

At one of the more beautiful squares in Florence, the hotel is situated. On the upper floors of a former palace, you will find nice and spacious rooms, a magnificent view over Florence, excellent lounge possibilities and a good Italian breakfast. Musea and very good small restaurants are at the square or in the direct neighborhood. A very pleasent stay, and a very helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended.

Four of us stayed for three nights at the end of October. Staff was always helpful whether we requested wine glasses so we could sit on the balcony watching the sunset, dinner reservations (when the restaurant we wanted was booked, they kept calling other restaurants they recommended for availability), or taxi requests. My room was large and very clean with an enormous bathroom. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed there for 3 nights and had a most enjoyable time. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel is right in the middle of where and what we wanted to do. Would recommend to anyone and will stay again.

Wife and I stayed six nights, Nov. 1 to 7. and enjoyed every day. While not luxurious, it's extremely charming. Best staff we've ever experienced. Especially Melania. Everyone always had a smile .
Was worried that the hotel would be a little far from the sights, but that wasn't the case. Florence is very walkable. And the "Gusta" restaurants in the neighborhood were all very good.
We had a cheaper room, no frescos, but with a million dollar view.

Room Tip: We had room 15, away from the piazza, very quiet. And a great view of the Duomo and Pitti Palace.

I have been wanting to stay in this hotel for many years, and finally have done so. I was not disappointed, even very nicely surprised, because it has been restored without losing its old world charm. I wrote a blog post about my stay: http://blog.trustandtravel.com/en/a-room-with-a-fabulous-view-the-hotel-palazzo-guadagni-in-florence/

Room Tip: my room on the upper floor looked out onto Palazzo Pitti, but the standing was a little simpler. If...

After travelling 19 hours to get to Florence with 3 girlfriends, I was horrified to learn that the hotel did not have a room for us. WIth confirmation email in hand, we had no choice but to find another place to stay in Florence for 4 people on a Friday night. Although we found a one-star hotel that was safe and clean, I can not think of a worst way to start a trip that was 5 years in the planning. The hotel looked great and everyone was apologetic, and that did little to help us. WARNING - confirm your reservation more than twice and call directly just to make sure. I spent 18 days in Italy and no other hotel, service or tour made this mistake.

Dear Madam,

we are really sorry for the incovenience appened with you and your friends, we are sorry you couldn't start well your stay in Florence.
We are glad If you could give us more informations about your reservation, the dates and the name you made it, to understand about our mistake.
When something like that happens, we try to be very kind with our guests, we find another Hotel, some level as ours and, if necessary, we pay the taxi too, so we are very surprised about our staff attitude that you wrote in your review.
Still so sorry from all Palazzo Guadagni staff!

Looking forward to hearing soon from you, we send our best regards.

Quiet hotel in a great location! We loved staying on this side of the Arno River and enjoying the local flair of area restaurants...had some of the best meals we had in our 12 day trip to Italy. Our room was HUGE...very quiet since it didn't overlook the square...view towards Poggi Palace. Nicely remodeled bathroom. The balcony overlooking the Piazza Santo Spirito was great...we had wine outside every night. Our only comment for improvement was breakfast...no meats, cheeses, or hard boiled eggs. Just cereal, fruit, yogurt, and pastries. My wife likes the hard boiled eggs which we had at every other hotel in Italy. Would definately stay again!
