Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We stayed in Florence for 4 nights during 3 week trip to Italy (which was during our 3 month trip to Europe).

I stayed here with my Mum and 2 sisters. We arrived via train from Siena. I had a simple map on Google Maps screenshot on my phone (because I didn't have any internet access), in the hope I would be able to navigate us to the hotel - And I did! We didn't even get lost once.

When we arrived at the hotel, we walked straight into the square, looking for the entrance - The entrance was on the side street, not the actual front of the hotel - Now, I do remember reading that on Tripadvisor. So take note when you are booking this hotel!

The hotel itself was lovely, both inside and out. It was a typical Italian hotel. We had a balcony in our room, overlooking the square, so we would go outside (not for very long, because it was winter) and watch the world go by. As soon as the doors close to the balcony, the room was pretty much silent again, so it was easy to fall asleep, even though there is so much going on around you. Both the room, and the bathroom were lovely - lots of space and very clean.

The breakfast was great. There was a great selection of juices, cereals, toast, pastries, egg, yoghurts, cheeses, coffees etc. They have the BEST GRANOLA!!

Hotel Pendini is the ideal place to stay in Florence, centrally located - within walking distance to everything, and great value for money also. We didn't eat out much in Florence - so I can't recommend any good restaurants. Instead - we would by crackers, with different selections of meat and cheeses and pair with with a bottle of Chianti and chill out in the room after a long day of walking through Florence.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Florence - it was a beautiful hotel, and made our stay in Florence perfect! I can't wait to go back in the Summer!

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the square (with a balcony). If you visit in the warmer months, it would b...

We loved this hotel. The room overlooked the square and had the most amazing view of the Duomo. The history of this hotel made it even more the pleasure. Hotel staff was attentive and looked out for all our needs. We even missed breakfast one morning and we were offered the romantic dining room all to ourselves with personal service. Loved the bath linen! Old black and white photos in the lobby were an excellent addition to this newly redone hotel. Hotel staff provided wonderful recommendations from restaurants to the best gelato spots.

Room Tip: Overlooking the square.... third floor

This is the ideal place for Florence. The location can't be beat and it has so much charm and character - you really feel like you are in Italy. The tile floors, the decor, the lovely breakfast room, the opera music playing softly in the lobby and breakfast room - it transports you. It was our favorite place during this trip. The baths have all been re-modled and the floors in all the rooms are hardwood with new wall paper on the walls. They seem to have many rooms for 3 or 4 people - a rarity in Italy. Even with a window right on the Square - the noise never botherd us. Simply delightful, charming, comfortable and welcoming.

Room Tip: I would want a room on the square.

Fantastic hotel. I have to thank Carlos and the whole staff for a wonderful stay. The room was very clean and large. We had tons of space and a separate sitting room. The room was 3 min from I'l Duomo and Palazza Vechio, and 7 min from San Lorenzo and the Accademia. The staff gave us recommendations for dinners, and a drive around the Chianti region. Highly recommend the drive and stopping at the castles Carlos points out. Breakfast in the morning is superb. We cannot recommend this hotel enough. Best stay of our 3 city trip to Italy.

Just finished staying at the Pendini in Florence. The location is amazing, in the heart of Florence. Our room windows opened to the Piazza Republic below for an amazing view. This hotel should be rated higher then 3 stars. Our room was spacious, clean and well decorated. The breakfast was great and the overall ambiance of the property is wonderful.

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Pendini in June 2014. The location is ideal - just two blocks from the Duomo and a few blocks from the Ponte Vecchio. The room was much better than I anticipated. We have a family of 5 - 2 adults and 3 teenagers. I didn't know what to expect, but our "room" was actually 2 bedrooms (one with a king sized bed and one with three twins) with a shared bath. It was clean and there was plenty of room for all of us.

The breakfast is included and has cold cuts, meats, hard boiled eggs, yogurt cereal and some absolutely wonderful croissants, as well as espresso drinks or juice. Delicious.

One final note, we had mistakenly ended up with a duplicate reservation for the three nights we were there - one prepaid and one to be paid at the hotel. Even though it cost them about $1000+, they were understanding that it was done accidentally and did not charge us for the extra room. The manager was wonderful and said that he wanted to make sure we had a great time there and didn't want this to ruin it. So kind. I would highly recommend this hotel.
