“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

The hotel was great. Nice staff and great breakfast too! The location is not bad at all, but a little further from the main area, but on a nice day its a lovely walk. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel itself is very clean. i would highly recommend this hotel when visiting Florence.

This hotel was great and a good location from the sites. We only really had 2 main days however the distance from the sites ws great and walking distance - around 10-15mins.
The reception staff were very helpful and guided us how to get to places, with pointers of the bus. I have to say though the bus stops are hard to identify and look more like a lamp post. The hotel however was very nice, rooms were cleaned daily with cosmetic essentials and bed cleaned. It would have been nice with a kettle in the room. Room was also equiped with TV, AC - heater too.
The breakfast in the morning wsa good and well maintaned. Hotel food in the evening was also reasonable to Florence prices. Also easy to get to the main train station - around 5-8 mins.
I would recommend this to everyone, good for a shortbreak.

The San Gallo Palace was a pleasant surprise. The room was nice. The balcony was delightful.The bathroom was exceptional it had a nice large soaking tub with shower which is a rare find in European hotels. The bed was firm but still comfortable. I would have to say that the sleep quality was very near perfect. The staff were the nicest most accommodating and welcoming just the type of experience you want to have. Breakfast was always good and the attendant was always so gracious. The location turned out to be amazing. I thought that I would miss out not being near the Duomo. I was wrong. There were so many great restraunts near the hotel where all the locals go. The walk to San Marco Square was short. We enjoyed the walk and would definitely stay at the San Gallo Palace again.

We really enjoyed our stay in the San Gallo Palace - it was clean and comfortable with friendly staff. The one downside that we found was that we had to call reception for heat in our room which seemed to be a bizarre idea. Breakfast was delicious, plenty of options and delightful coffee (standard Italy!). The location is a bit of a bone of contention - we didnt think it was that good but we did have rain so it probably felt further to walk into the main centre. However, for the price, we couldn't really complain - i'm sure you could stay further in but you'll definitely pay for it. I would recommend this hotel

We left this hotel this morning after a 3 night stay....one word to describe it all...wonderful. Beautiful room, fabulous breakfast and charming staff. A 15 minute walk from the centre which suited us.

The San Gallo Palace hotel has a number of excellent plus points;

The staff are attentive and helpful, from the minute me and my girlfriend stepped into the hotel it was obvious that the staff pride themselves on their level of service.

The bedrooms are (at least in our case) clean, tidy and well spaced, in addition to being quiet I.e. noises from next door were not easily made out. The only negative was that the plugs in both our bath and sink were slightly defective however this was sorted quickly following discussion with the receptionist.

The breakfast is extremely good given the relative size of the hotel. They attempt to cater for all needs and the women managing the service are friendly, polite and eager to help.

The only two negatives of note are 1) the hardness of the bed (although I fear this is a trend throughout hotels in Italy) and 2) the distance to attractions such as the pitti palace however on the latter, it is such a pleasant 10-15 minute walk it is hardly worth mentioning.

Anyone wanting a pleasant, but perhaps not overly luxurious base from which to explore Florence, should consider staying at the San Gallo Palace, it has everything you could need, is not far from the attractions and presents great value for money.

If ever I return to Florence I would definitely consider staying again.
