Reviewed 30 April 2014

I hesitate to repeat all of the accolades already documented here by other travelers (trying not to be boring), but I must say I was not disappointed in any way. I did extensive research before our trip, and easily rejected the many highly rated "name" hotels in favor of the opportunity to stay in a real pallazzo beautifully appointed yet equipped with all the modern conveniences. We went on to travel to three other 5* properties in Italy, but nowhere else did we have the HUGE living quarters we experienced here. The staff was very helpful, recommending excellent restaurants, giving great directions and were generally helpful in every way. Not to mention the rooftop bar which was wonderful. I highly recommend this property.

We stayed at the Palazzo Magnani Feroni for 4 nights, during which period we were married at the Florence town hall (Palazzo Vecchio).

Over this time we had a party on the roof terrace, our bridal party meet & get ready, photographers & florists arriving etc. Nothing was ever too much trouble, from printing out several copies of documents to booking multiple taxis, catering for the party we had on the gorgeous roof terrace to helping my new husband zip me into my reception ball gown!

The rooms are lovely (we stayed in Giulia), a wonderful size - even when we had the entire bridal party (8 people), 2 photographers & a hairdresser in our suite we didn't feel crowded.

The bulgari amenities are wonderful, the location is perfect : 5 minutes to cross to the main side of the river, but very quiet at night. Breakfast each day was wonderful, served in a stunning dining room (be sure to look up at the ceiling!) with a large selection from bacon, eggs (omelettes available by request), to fruit, yoghurt, cheese & cold meats. It also included gluten free items.

And as we waited for our car to take us to the wedding ceremony the owner of the Palazzo came out to congratulate us and thank us for staying, and when we returned there was a bottle of chilled champagne & a lovely card from all the staff.

We were made to feel like family, and would stay again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Check out their website before you book - there are often specials & we got 30% off our room.

We absolutely loved our stay at Palazzo Magnani Feroni. The staff was so friendly and helpful and made our stay really special, especially Emmanuele at the rooftop bar. They gave us a free round upon arrival, and obviously we took them up on the offer. We came back every night afterwards because we enjoyed the view, the free bar snacks, and the bartender's company. We couldn't believe that no one else was enjoying the rooftop! It was our favorite part of the hotel.

We were on the top floor, facing the street. The room itself was fabulous--HUGE and beautifully decorated with really cool antiques. Beautiful bathroom with lush toiletries (which I obviously brought home with me). It got a little noisy at night, thanks to a couple of lively bars on the street, but no big deal. With all of the prosecco and wine we were enjoying, it didn't keep us awake.

TIP: use the "joker" option online when booking a room. You pay a little bit extra for the chance at being upgraded to the nicest room, if it's available. It paid off for us--we got upgraded to a top level suite!

Room Tip: use the joker option to hopefully get upgraded if they have a higher level room available.

I will never get over how happy I am each time I walk thru the front entrance at Palazzo Magnani Feroni, it feels like coming home: the staff is kind and helpful, the place is magnificent, the rooms are specious and lovely, the neighborhood is wonderful as it’s in the center of town but out of the beaten path…. All this is much more makes this Grand Palace a pure joy to stay in. I will not bore everybody by telling you how wonderful the terrace is because on my previous feedbacks and as many others have written before me, the terrace is spectacular!

This is a real palace! The hotel is unique in every way. You feel royalty there. I loved every minute of it at the hotel and would love to return there soon. The suites are very big (huge for Europe) with Renaissance style decor in historical building. Staff are amazingly friendly, helpful and welcoming and personable! Roof top bar has great view of Florence day or night and drinks are perfect there.

You could pass before this enormous antique house without noticing it, as it melts into the neighbourhood of ancient residencies.
Once inside you immediately feel the antique hart of the building and furniture beating around you. One can feel that the owners are antiquaries. A more than kind personel warmly welcomes you in this suites only (and only 13 suites) hotel. A VERY old but beautifuul alevator brought us to the second floor.
Opening the door of our suite the room was huge, a big "salon" and the bedroom "en suite", as well as the ceiling, 4-5 meters above your head make you feel like small there.
Stairs starting on our 2d floor bring you (after a serious climb) to a nice roof terrace with amazing vews on a large part of the city and the surrounding hills.
The bedding was more than comfortable, and the room was perfectly clean.
The breakfastroom is wonderfull, with it's autentic breathtaking ancient ceiling.
One remark : the room on the street side are a bit noisy (specially on a saturday night),

Room Tip: ask for a room NOT on the street.

I recently stayed at the Palazzo Magnani Feroni and it surpassed my expectations. From the beautiful lobby with soothing jazz music in the background to the elegant lift that took me to the floor of my suite it was all perfect. I loved all the small touches such as; choosing your own soap, Bulgari amenities in the bathroom and a lovely collection of CDs to choose from and to enjoy during your stay in your suite.
The rooftop view was amazing and the bar was located in the lobby was moving to the rooftop, the next evening - very romantic! I loved the white glove service at breakfast, at each candle lit table, where you could enjoy a mimosa/bucks fizz with your breakfast if you wished. What I loved most was that the hotel was quiet and relaxed yet, if you needed to be with the hustle and bustle - the city vibe of Florence was right outside the door. This central location makes it a great place to stay and to walk to all the popular sights. Close by are lots of restaurants and bars. Concierge went to lengths to find a nice jazz club for me that I would enjoy as a single person. The staff was excellent, courteous and extremely helpful.
This venue though is definitely best suited for a couple(s) or a group wanting to buy out the hotel. Excellent for honeymoons, birthdays or a quiet getaways.
I can't wait for the next time I am able to stay there. It was an amazing experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Palazzo Magnani Feroni is an historical home that for over five hundred years has been at the centre of Florence's aristocratic life: one of the oldest dwellings in the San Frediano neighbourhood, it has stood as an important symbol of the city's history and its artistic value. The class of this elegant renaissance palace, evident upon entering, finds its maximum expression in the sumptuous suites and the luxurious hospitality quarters, furnished with candelabra, statues, paintings and frescoes form the '500. Each suite reflects the refinement of the Renaissance style, with the subtle combination of comfort and modern technology and decorated with tasteful antique furnishings and materials originating from the owners' ancestors' antique collection. Spanning between 80- and 120-square meters (860- and 1300- square feet) in size, the 13 suites each comprise a large living room, bedroom(s) and master bathroom(s). Each includes all amenities expected of a five-star luxury hotel, including stereo, satellite television in both the living room and bedroom, internet port and self-regulating air conditioning units. An architectural jewel of the 16th century, the Palazzo Magnani Feroni belongs to the National Register of Historical Monuments of the State of Italy. Detail and ornamentation characterises the building throughout, surprising the wanderer with frescoes, vaulted ceilings and intricate wood-carvings. The Renaissance decor prevails in this palace of traditional Florentine lay-out. Breakfast, for instance, is served in a 160-square meter salon with hand-crafted wood ceilings illuminated by a large original Murano chandelier. In the winter evenings, this salon serves as an intimate, candle-lit Bar, accessible to Palazzo guests and their friends only. The same rules are applicable to the adjoining Billiard Room, as well as to the In-House Gym, so as to assure the guests with absolute privacy. The beautiful Roof-Top Terrace offers a breathtaking view of the city and houses the Palazzo Bar as soon as the temperature permits. Providing 24-hour Reception and Service, the Palazzo Magnani Feroni is run by a staff dedicated to meet your every need with efficiency and discretion, both prior, during and following your stay. Services include reservations to exclusive restaurants, recommendations of typical local eateries and trattorias, coordination of privileged entrance to the city's museums, airport / train station pick-up, private shopping tours, visits to the Ferrari Museum and private, chauffeured excursions to the beautiful Chianti valley. Also, Palazzo guests choose from a selection of CDs, DVD films and soap fragrances for their suite, as well as benefit from private Guides to shopping and restaurants off the beaten path, personally written by the owners of the Palazzo for an "insider's view" of Florence. ... more   less
