We stayed in a suite which was perfect for having 2 kids. The hotel had a very elegant feel and the location was perfect. We walked everywhere and were very close to everything. Breakfast was included which was a nice way to start the day. I highly recommend staying here.

Great location, great place, close to all main attractions in Florence.
I booked the room by booking.com in a very good price and when we arrived, the friendly staff informed me that they upgrated my reservation to a junior suite (Tuscany exclusive level) that was a marvelous experience, even if with not so nice view.
The breakfast room is nicely decorated and the breakfast was good with plenty to eat and drink.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Tuscany exclusive level

Hotel's location is excellent, in the heart of florence. Manienance and service are very good. Room design was to our liking.
The only thing that didn't work was the Wi-Fi connection in the lobby (free), but we saw that other guests manages to get on line so it might be specific fot our devices (HTC+Android).

I've stayed 2 nights with my husband and we recommend this hotel for weekend trips (as well as longer trips) because of its placement in the very city center ( 5 minutes to Uffizi, cathedrale and all the Florence turist musts..) but also very quiet for a good sleep and recuperation (rooms facing to the courtyard).
The outstanding about this hotel is its nice staff - quick room service.
(Only one critique: wifi only working in hotel lobby and the bathroom tiling needs fix in luxury room)

We came to the Bernini Palace after a friend warned us about a previous booking we had made been a bust. The location of the Bernini could not possibly be better, literally a couple of blocks away from every attraction in town. The staff is attentive and non intrusive (even the picturesque old Salvatore at the front desk who talks to himself in several different languages) The rooms are spacious and immaculately clean, they even iron the fine bed linens twice a day and the soundproofed windows and thick blackout curtains will provide you with a sound sleep opportunity. We had previously stayed at the Excelsior and this is a better location choice for less than half the price.

Hotel exceeded expectations all around. Location was unbelievable. One block from Piazza Signore, one block from Ufizzi, three blocks from Ponte Vecchio and high end shops. A five minute walk to the Duomo.The hotel staff was attentive, friendly, helpful and even charming. Rooms were just as pictured with beautiful bathrooms. Lobby very chic and welcoming. Overall, hotel is very well maintained. Breakfast was simply wonderful--scrambled eggs, bacon, toast as well as scrumptious cold buffet that included meats and cheeses set out in a beautiful room. 10 minute 12 euro cab ride from the train station. Leaving, desk called a cab--it came in 3 minutes.
Would stay here again in a heart beat. We felt we had really lucked out. It made our
first trip to Florence really special
