“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed 5 nights. We have enjoyed it very much. Excellent location near Ufizzi, many reastaurants and shops around, very nice friendly staff who can understand and speak English and always willing to help, nice room everything is thought off although a bit claustrophobic due to placing of furnitures! breakfast can be improved, extremely small and slow elevator which is the only mean to go to rooms, still we highly recommend it!

Dear Mehtap Y,
we thank You for Your kind review and for sharing with other readers on Tripadvisor Your experience in our hotel.
It is our great pleasure to know that You have enjoyed our staff service, we are always glad to help!
Each room or area of the hotel has been designed by architects and interior designers , who have been worked at the best in order to bring out the best from the inside space of this building , which dates back to the 17th century , to allow each room to maintain its structure , beautiful ceiling frescoes and, at the same time, provide all the comforts to make our guests’ stay memorable!
Breakfast , an external service to our hotel , is a plus that we are happy to arrange for all our customers, who can of course choose to have it in the morning until 11 am , directly in the bar next door, with a choice of full American breakfasts buffet service or a simple cappuccino and croissant at the bar desk , like any typical Florentine person!
We hope to see You soon again here, do not hesitate to contact our booking department to get the best rate for You!
Kind Regards

Following the conclusion of a business trip in anothe part of Italy, I had 1.5 days to spend as free time and opted to take the train to Florence. I was solo for my brief holiday and wanted to find a hotel in a central location with all of the amenities - and I hit the jackpot with my selection of San Firenze Suites and Spa!

Accommodations - amenities include marble / tile bathrooms, nicely appointed rooms with similar comforts to Heavenly bed (down comforter).
Location - couldn't get any better. in the heart of Florence, and a stones throw from Uffizi, Museo Gucci and Piazza Signora. Also very close walking distance to Duomo / baptistry and Ponte Vecchio bridge. Despite the central location, rooms are quiet and I had a very restful night's sleep
Staff- so friendly and helpful. They even provided suggestions where I could buy quality leather jacket not massed produced (ie, in all the tourist shops).
View - check out my room with a view. I stayed in Deluxe room on 3rd floor. If there are availabiities on 3rd or 4th floor, ask upon check-in. My room had a partial view of Duomo dome and Campanile
Only downside - I didn't want to leave this hotel or Florence by the time my trip ended. I would definitely welcome this gem of a hotel to those traveling solo or couples / honeymooners. Whenever I go back to Florence, I will stay here again!

Room Tip: Go for a "Room with a View" -3rd or 4th floor if available

Dear DocErin,
thank You for Your review , it is always a pleasure for us to receive comments on the stay of our customers, we especially thank You for describing our hotel as “gem of a hotel to those traveling solo or couples / honeymooners”
Define our beds " Heavenly Bed " is a great pleasure for us , we are glad that You were able to relax at the best in our suites
Surely one of the greatest strengths of the hotel, is, as You indicated, being in the center of those who are to be visited all the main monuments of Florence; also located a few steps from what is one of the oldest leather markets of the city, where You can buy beautiful jackets (we hope You found what You were looking for!)
As the hotel is so central, it also gives the gorgeous views from every room , overlooking the Chapel of the Duomo, the Bargello Museum and Piazza San Firenze .
We hope to have You here again soon and that You have the opportunity to stay with us a few more days , it will be a pleasure to organize for You trips to the secret streets of the city and the hills of Florence tours!
Do not hesitate to contact us for Your next vacation, You will have the best rate!
Best Regards

Friendly, very accommodating, superb rooms, fabulous views, professional staff, always going the extra mile, felt so welcome. The rooms were spacious and well laid out. So were the bathrooms. So much to do and see nearby, church bells calling us to mass regularly. Even the driving instructions were perfect, to the letter. Could only wish we could have stayed longer

My wife and 12-year-old daughter stayed at the San Firenze for 7 nights in the large Executive Suite Room 111 overlooking Piazza San Firenze. We loved the decor and modern bathroom--plenty of room for the three of us. The staff was wonderful, especially Lavinia, Barbara, Loran and David. All very helpful and friendly. The Brown Sugar cafe next door was perfect for breakfast. The location is a dream as it is mere yards from the Uffizi, Bargello, Palazzo Vecchio, and the river. Also a 5 minute walk to my favorite church Santa Croce. You really cannot go wrong with the San Firenze suites and it would definitely be our first choice for a return visit. Make sure if you arrive by taxi you go to Piazza San Firenze (ours first tried to drop us off at the Piazza Signoria) and look for the small plaque on the building next to the newsstand at No. 3. It is easy to miss.

Room Tip: Don't worry about rooms facing the Piazza. It is quite quiet at night and the rooms have except...

Dear nnw59,

Thank You for Your nice review and for the complete description you have made of the hotel: this help us showing how the hotel is with the eyes of our guest!
Location of San Firenze Suites & Spa is a strong point, so that You can easily reach any monuments or old palace You would like to visit, and also our staff is always glad to help You in any ticket’s booking!
San Firenze is one of the oldest squares of Florence, so that taxis should know where is located… however being compared to piazza Signoria is, for sure, a compliment by the driver you have met!
For Your next stay, it will be a pleasure for us to offer You a Loyal discount and, why not, should You prefer we can organize one the company drivers of Florence to come to pick You up and to bring You here a t the hotel !
Hope to see You soon again,

With Kind Regards

My husband and I just checked out of the San Firenze suites and I must say we had an amazing stay. The hotel staff was always prompt, helpful, and pleasant. We were here for 4 nights and we found it to be a great home base as we explored Florence and Tuscany. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Dear Stephanie B.,

Thanks for Your so nice review, it would have been great to have You here for some days more! Of course in a trip to Italy You need to see all our main cities, so that you cannot stop here for a so long time, however we always hope that You will have the opportunity for a second holiday in Florence!
Should You be able to come in a different season, it will be also a great opportunity to visit Chianti areas, our wonderful hills around the city: our staff will be glad to help You organizing everything You might need!
Hope to see You soon again, please remember that contacting us directly, our management will be glad to offer You the great Loyal discount!

3 of us stayed in two rooms at this magnificent establishment for 6 days. It is really a shame that we couldn't have stayed even longer, but there is a lot of Italy we still need to see. From the moment we arrived Barbara, Livinia and David made us feel that we were special, like old family members coming home. There was not a single recommendation, large or small (where the best whatever was, where an attraction was, how to get directions to something or somewhere, etc) that wasn't spot on. Their English was excellent and they took the time to help us with our limited Italian. So much for the staff--I could go on for some time singing their praises, but on about the property. Location. Location. Location. Literally in walking distance to everything Florence. The two rooms we had were on the 3rd floor overlooking the piazza. In the early evening the street noises were wonderful to listen to--cars passing by, church bells ringing, conversations, etc. However, come 2-3 am those same conversations became quite loud. Close the windows and all you heard was silence. Truly sound-proof-windows. The beds. Six nights of sheer heaven. As far as hotel beds go (and I have slept in more than my share), these are at the top of the princess-and-the-pea stack. Plenty of room in the room for all of our suitcases without having to climb over anything. Breakfast in the morning was nothing less than excellent as well. Fresh fruit, juices, pastries, hot beverages, etc. couldn't have asked for more. If I could have given it more stars I would have. Highly recommended!

Dear Tymbo family,

thanks for Your so wonderful review, it has been a pleasure to us all to receive it!
Seeing that we have been so helpful for You it is the most important thing for us: our guest comes before everything!
The architecture of the hotel has given us the opportunity to build the hotel as You can see it: soundproof windows – the main important thing while You stay in a so central location, in the middle of Florentine life!
Our staff is always glad to help our guest, as we want You to feel like home while You are here, so we do all our best to give You the best recommendation, same that we could give to a member of our family!
The, of course, central location, is one of the strong point of the hotel, matched with the furniture and interior decoration, we always hope that this can leave in our guest magic memories of your Florentine stay!
Every single details have been studied and chosen personally by the owners and management: this gives to the hotel a “personal touch”, which we hope everyone will enjoy!
On top, breakfast without having to go out in the morning, is the “cherry on the cake” – ciliegina sulla torta – as we use to say here in Italy: fresh fruit, cakes, hot drinks, fresh eggs, bacon and so much more wait for You every morning, our way to say to you a nice “Buongiorno!”
We hope to have You here in the next future, it will be a pleasure for us to offer You the Loyal discount for Your next travel to Florence!

With Kind Regards

What a gem! Given it's proximity to the Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizzi, and Museo Gucci etc the suites were very good value. Our room had a gorgeous view over Piazza San Firenze, and you could open the window to take advantage of the pealing bells, but when closed the room was very quiet. Spacious and comfortable room. Staff were helpful and able to book tickets to Galleria Accademia for us which was a must to save us heaps of time.
