This 3 star hotel is located in the historical area of Florence known as Oltrano and is a 5 minute walk across The Ponta Vecchio The prior name was Residence Santo Spirito and after 2 years of renovations and the addition of 12 new rooms on the top floor along with a loggia, it is open again under the name of Palazzo Guadagni. My wife and I have stayed here for the past 4 summers and have fallen in love with the place. We enjoy it so much we spend 3 or 4 weeks at the hotel every summer and use it for a home base as we travel to other cities in Tuscany. Most of us are accustom to closet size small rooms in Italy and other parts of Europe. Not so at this place. The rooms are the most spacious we have stayed in our 10 trips to Europe. If you want concierge service, a chocolate treat on your bed pillow every night with turn down service, don’t stay here. However if you want to experience a true taste of Italy and be in an area where you will see more locals than tourists, then this is the place to stay. One of the drawbacks to this establishment may be that the owners do not speak perfect English, however they strive to make your stay in Florence an enjoyable experience.
The owners Ferdinando and Laura have lived in Florence for 5 generations and can provide you with a infinite knowledge of the history of the area as well as many recommendations on what to see and where to eat during your stay in Florence.
