“Wonderful hotel”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Stayed at the hotel for two short nights--did not have more time, but wish I did. The rooms were large, clean, and the location is wonderful--it is a great combination of authentic Firenze, away from the heavy tourist area across the river--a very short walk to all of the tourist sights--I would highly recommend this hotel and plan to stay again next year--Santo Spirito is a wonderful piazza with cute, quaint restaurants literally right outside of the hotel!!

My family recently stayed at this hotel and had a wonderful time. The locale is perfect, right off the square and a short walk acoss the bridge to all of the sights. The real plus of this location is you get a real feel for Firenze without being surrounded by tourists. The square is charming and there is a market in the morning. There are cafes around the square as well a number of good restaurants. The hotel itself occupies the top floors of an old building and has a great terrrace where you can sit and enjoy the breeze and some wine all while surveying a nice view of Firenze. The staff was warm and friendly, calling us by name. They were extremely helpful, espcially Tara in making sure we were comfortable. She also provided great recommendations and reservations. The room was huge by European standards and very comfortable. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

My family and I stayed at this hotel, it is located in the last floor of the building so the view from the terrace was beautifull. We enjoyed very much the big rooms, the excellent bread at breakfast, great location near the main tourist attractions. The best of all was the friendly and smiling people that works at the hotel . !!!

My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Palazzo Guadagni in June for 8 nights. Like so many other visitors to this hotel, we could not have asked for better. Everything about our stay exceeded expectations. A great location that is within walking distance of all major attractions. Most importantly, Ferdinando (the owner) and his excellent team could not have done more to assist us and make for a truly memorable stay. The staff were always eager to help, recommend and advise.

Our beautifully-furnished room overlooked rooftops (as opposed to the Piazza Santo Spirito) and we enjoyed a view of the Duomo. The room was quiet except for the atmospheric sound of church bells.

Breakfast was ample, with plenty of fresh fruit, bread and pastries and of course gorgeous coffee. More than enough to see one through to lunch.

The verandah of the hotel overlooks Piazza Santo Spirito, the beautiful and busy local square. The daily market seems popular with locals and offers a wide variety of goods. Spending time on the verandah was enjoyable at any time of day. The views and sounds will remain with us for a long time.

We also enjoyed spending time in the square itself, whether eating at one of the restaurants, going for a stroll or visiting the amazing little museum tucked into the corner of the square adjacent to the Santo Spirito Church.

The Hotel Palazzo Guadagni was a major factor in making out first visit to Florence so very special and memorable, so much so that we have decided to return next year.

Room Tip: If you would prefer a quiet room request one not overlooking the square.

My wife and I spent 3-days in Florence and very much enjoyed our stay at the Palazzo Guadagni. It was in a great location in the Santo Spirito neighborhood. Many locals live in this area as the hotel is not in the heart of Florence. It is a short 5-minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio and thus 7-minutes to the main "tourist" areas. Our room had air conditioning and overlooked the Santo Spirito square. Now, while our room had gorgeous 8-foot double glass windows, it is a very loud and popular area at night and for those of you who have sensitive ears, you might want to bring ear plugs. (They actually provided some for us:) During the morning, we would have coffee in our room, open up the windows and look down below and see the activity at the market. What a way to start the day.

The staff was very friendly and answered any and all questions. The breakfast was average.. small pastries, cereal, etc, but you are not there for the food. You are there for the location, the service and the price and if you can handle the active nightlife in the area, this is the place for you!

Enjoy your stay.

Zach

Palazzo Guadagni was reasonably priced, clean, comfortable and very well located. Our room was air-conditioned (very important, given how hot it was) and quiet (also very important). The staff was helpful and the hotel provided a nice breakfast. Hard to ask for more than that. I'd suggest requesting a quiet room if you're not a sound sleeper as the hotel is on a square and I gather it can be noisy if you're in certain parts of the building.
