“Lovely Hotel in Great, Central Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Fresh, classy - traditional decor. Large, modern bathroom. Very clean, comfortable room. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Good AC. Location is great. Can walk to just about anywhere in Florence. Lovely breakfast room with a generous, European breakfast of juices, coffee, breads, yogurt, meats and cheeses, etc.. I would definitely stay here again. Glad I booked this place.

Room Tip: I requested a quiet room. I was placed in a back room overlooking a courtyard. The court yard is...

thank you for staying at the Pendini and for posting this very positive review. we are delighted to read your appreciation both on the decor and our services.
we are particulary happy about your comment on the breakfast food . all products are selected from the best quality and croissants and bread are baked by our staff every morning and are displayed when still hot.

we hope we can welcome you to the Pendini again on your next visit to Florence.

My wife and I had booked a room at the Hotel Gionori al Duomo but it was overbooked (even though I had made a reservation six months earlier and had an email confirmation from the hotel only days previous). We were switched to the Hotel Pendini and I'm glad we were. The room was very nice and clean. The location was fantastic. I would highly recommend staying here. Should we go back to Florence, this will be our first choice of hotels.

It is some time since I stayed here back in September last year, but I just wanted to let people know what a wonderful experience it was!!

The location is perfect for a start and the staff, helpful, friendly and very accommodating. The rooms had been recently re-furbished and mine was just delightful! A good size in fact for a hotel. I was pleasantly surprised.

Our rates included breakfast and that was delightful, plentiful and served by warm, friendly staff.

The saddest part of this experience was having to leave this place and Florence itself. I have stayed in many hotels over the years but this is possibly the only one that made me feel like I was part of the family.

I only hope I get to go back and stay again in the not too distant future. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. It was perfect!!

We stayed here last week, sadly only for one night on our way back from a wedding. The staff were welcoming and efficient. Their helpfulness included arranging parking for our car and providing a secure place to leave our luggage, after we had checked out but before we left the City. The hotel has been completely and tastefully refurbished with an ambience of chic. The clean, comfortable bedroom was spacious with a good quality en suite. One reviewer praised the croissants at breakfast - we were not disappointed; and that aside the breakfast was good. There is also a pleasant lounge to sit and plan your time in Florence. We would certainly return if we visit Florence again.

Room Tip: The one way system in the centre of the City is a nightmare, so if you are driving print out the dir...

I stayed two nights during Easter week with my two boys, ages 11 and 10, my wife, and my active senior parents. We had two rooms on the main (fourth) floor of the historic monumental building where the hotel is housed. The hotel desk clerk was very gracious in “staying on the phone” to talk us in driving directions to the hotel – Florence inside the walls is a car restricted city – not clear if I will receive photo tickets but it’s been a couple of months and we were driving in the daytime only straight to the hotel so I’m hoping no news is good news. Once at the hotel, the front desk had a parking attendant with whom they have a contract picking up my car to park it for me within 15 minutes. We didn’t pick up the car until we left a few days later and that’s what I recommend as everything in Florence proper is walking distance and a car is more a hindrance than a help. The hotel itself had a recent total renovation so everything is clean and modern, deluxe bathrooms, well appointed and with flat screen tvs -- our two rooms across the hall from each other were perfect for what we wanted. The proximity of this hotel to all major sites is awesome and we didn’t notice any undue noise from the square. I wanted the ideal location for my parents and the hotel didn’t disappoint. Although the building perhaps isn’t truly ‘Florentine’ the historical photos in the hall near the front desk were neat – photos during the war and after with Jimmy Stewart and others all lend a sense of great history and place. We loved the breakfast – best croissants of our entire trip and they have a neat self service Nescafe machine that produced all you can drink hot chocolates and cappuccinos at the touch of a button – all in a very beautiful breakfast room with an outside view to the palaces and street below. We highly recommend this hotel – it’s better than the review and star levels indicate and a very nice very well appointed and located hotel overall. Thank you Pendini!!

The Pendini hotel is very well located in the middle of Florence, well decorated and convenient for my family trip on june 2014. I was alone with my 3 kids and all the staff was professional and very friendly with us. Rooms are very big, bathrooms are clean and modern. The breakfast was a lovely moment to start the day and the breakfast room is really warm and friendly. The only problem was the noise from the bar on the square.

Room Tip: Rooms with the view on Piazza della Repubblica are noisy at night because of the bars

thank you for this excellent review. we are happy you have enjoyed your stay at the Pendini together with your kids in one of our family rooms.

some of these rooms face the lively Piazza Repubblica and consequentely less quiet than
the inside rooms.

Wonderful view from the breakfast room on the Strozzi palaces. Very friendly breakfast service. Very reserved but professional reception.
