“A Beauitful Character Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

A beautiful character hotel in a wonderful central posistion within walking distance of most of the major sites. A twenty minute taxi ride from Florence airport with a set charge of 20 euros plus one euro for each suitcase.

My wife and I stayed in one of the hotels classic rooms(cheapest), which was tastefully decorated with antique furnishings and a spectacular central chandeller. The bed was king sized and comfortable with pure linen sheets and pillow cases. The en suite shower room was a little on the small side but adequate, with a varied array of complementary quality toiletries. There were no tea or coffee making facilities within the room. A turned down service each night was in operation and used towels were replaced in the shower room and a small casket of chocolates were left on the bed, which was a nice touch.

Breakfast was buffet style, served in a large room with a spectacular frescord ceiling. Breakfast itself offered a large and varied menu, suitable for all tastes and was of a good standard. Hot drinks were severed to you table by staff and a replacement pot of tea or coffee was offered if required.

To sum up. This is an excellent hotel with outstanding staff that put their guests first, as nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. Rooms were spotlessly clean and well-presented including the public areas and corridors. Could not fault anything.

I would wholeheartledly recommend this hotel if visisting Florence.

One could not find a better hotel for location, professional yet friendly staff and comfort. You are steps away from everything in Florence. Enzo will take care of your tour needs. Franco, Bart and Simone will remember your cocktail order and be on hand to greet you at breakfast. I'm not sure which I will miss more - the city of Florence or the hotel and staff. Thanks for making our trip memorable.

The Bernini was a beautifully appointed hotel, and situated within short walking distance to basically everything! 10 -15 minutes walks to the Duomo, Medici Palace, the market, the Oltrarno neighborhood, the Academia, and 3 minutes to the Ufffizi. Breakfast was excellent with many choices of fresh foods and cooked.

I chose this hotel because it is only a block from piazza della signoria. The location was great, but the hotel was fabulous. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The desk staff were all wonderful. They gave great recommendations for restaurants and local things to do.
The beds slept well and the linen sheets were a nice touch.

Stayed 8 nights on a tour, found the accommodations excellent, room was spacious for a European hotel. To get to some of the rooms you have to go up and down a number of steps, so people with limited mobility need to ask for rooms where this does not occur. Yes there are a lot of young people on the the streets Friday and Sat nights, stayed on the 5th floor and with the windows closed the noise was not a problem. The narrow alleys amplify the noise. The staff were superb and the breakfast excellent. The location is the best in Florence right near all the attractions. The Wifi was free and fast. Would stay there again

Room Tip: Rooms higher up are quieter, if possible get a room not facing the street

Lot of grand impressive public rooms. Very convenient to the main attractions in Central Florence good breakfast but otherwise took our meals out. Very comfortable room and bed. Some late evening and early morning traffic noise. We got a good deal. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would come here again.

The street in front of the hotel is full of young people shouting, singing and laughing all the night... Impossible to sleep! That'a a pity, because the hotel is beautiful, the location, perfect and the staff, friendly.

Dear Guest,
thank you for your feedback, I was delighted to read your review. We do have a great location here at The Bernini which is one of the many reasons why our guests return to stay with us, we are in the heart of Florence and near the main attractions, so sometimes the surrounding streets could be noisy, that's way all our rooms have sound proof window.
Please contact me the next time you’re in Florence and we will do our best to allocate you one of our quieter rooms on the internal side of the building,
Kind Regards,
David Foschi
