“Go for it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013

I spent 6 nights at the Bernini Palace and it was a wonderful experience. Due to fog, my flight from Rome was cancelled and I arrived in Florence by bus at 1 am instead of 10 pm. I phoned the hotel from Rome to let them know of the delay. When I arrived, the man at the reception greeted me warmly by name and told me that I had been given an upgraded room. This was a very pleasant start to a wonderful stay in this lovely hotel. The room was great, with an extremely comfortable bed. The breakfast was delicious, with a very big choice of food, in a beautiful room with an interesting trompe-l'oeil ceiling. The breakfast staff was amazing! After the first morning, they remembered exactly what I liked, and I noticed that they were attentive and smiling and communicative with all the guests. The reception staff was also very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. All of that, together with the perfect location of the hotel makes it a winner in every sense. Highly recommended!

After Rome we ventured to Florence and were booked at The Bernini Palace Hotel. We could not believe what a great central location it was in! It is fabulously decorated and the rooms were very comfortable. Friendly/helpful staff and delicious free daily breakfast (we could not get enough)! I would definitely recommend this hotel to those travelling to Florence.

We stayed here in November 2013. This is a wonderful hotel, very central, with all the usual facilities and comforts expected in this level of accommodation. Lovely, well equipped rooms, attentive staff and efficient facilities. We especially enjoyed the self-service breakfast in the beautiful dining room. This hotel is in a great location and offers everything you need to enjoy a visit to this timeless city. Recommended.

We picked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. A deluxe double on the top floor facing the square provides a nice view and quiet room (stay off the small side street as it can get noisy). Walking distance to all of the sights. Fine breakfast. Never really saw many people at the lobby bar and wasn't overly impressed by its ambiance, the lobby seemed a but stiff and crowded with tour groups. Wouldn't hurt if the front desk people smiled and were a little friendlier - for example, my wife asked about a hair salon and rather than making an appointment for her they merely gave her a phone number (since we don't speak Italian it was an awkward call - the concierge desk at a larger, corporate-type hotel would have made that call for her). Still a top choice if you can afford it and get the right accommodations.

We stayed at the Bernini Palace as members of a tour group. Our experience was outstanding in all respects. The room was large, well-appointed, and well-maintained. The included breakfast was excellent, and the breakfast dining area was particularly attractive. All hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

For the visiting tourist, the location could hardly be better...immediately behind the Palazzo Vecchio and three blocks from San Croce.

We would surely stay here again.

Upon check in we were told we were upgraded...my mom almost peed her pants...we never get upgraded! I don't want to see what we were upgraded from, but I am sure it was absolutely a fantastic room too. Anyhow, we were upgraded to a great room. Only downside was we were not looking out over the city, but rather other rooms. This however did not detract from the room. We were made to feel very comfortable by the staff. The bed was to die for, the breafast was amazing, the concierge was helpful and suggested great restaurants. The location was perfect, central to all the main sites. We loved the whole stay and have raved about it to many.
