We stayed here for two nights back in May 2012 while vacationing in Florence. The hotel is a great value, as it is very affordable considering how highly-reviewed it is. It definitely lived up to its reputation!
The hotel was easy to find, and its location - the Santo Spirito neighborhood just south of the Arno, very close to Pitti Palace - is very nice. It is close enough to the city center to be convenient, but far enough away to be quaint and quiet. It is located on a palazzo with several good restaurants. One in particular (Osteria Santo Spirito) had food so good that we went there several times.
The staff are all polite and accommodating. Prior to our trip I asked them about how to go about getting tickets to Uffizi and Accademia. They booked reservations for me, which I really appreciated.
The room was quite large compared to our other stays in Europe. The bed was comfortable, the surrounding area was quiet at night, and we had a nice view from our window. The complimentary breakfast was pretty good as well. Perhaps the best part about the hotel is the rooftop garden bar, which is large enough for many people to enjoy, and provides a nice view of the surrounding area.
We highly recommend the Palazzo Guadagni!
