“Very nice hotel close to everything”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

My husband and I stayed here a total of 9 nights here on our honeymoon and we are glad we chose this hotel. We had a very comfortable stay, room was cleaned everyday, staff spoke English and were very helpful and friendly. Free Breakfast everyday which was very good and the coffee was great! The hotel is located close enough so that we were able to walk to popular sites such as the San Lorenzo market, the Duomo, Uffizi gallery and other wonderful restaurants near by. I would recommend this hotel to other friends who plan on staying in Florence!

Room Tip: Go for the superior room with the double bed

We stayed 4 nights in April 2014. It is a really comfortable hotel offering good value and it is well placed for the city centre, which is a short walk away. Well appointed rooms, great breakfast, friendly staff. No restaurant in the hotel but many close by.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back overlooking the garden & very quiet

We recently stayed as San Gallo Palace for 3 nights in March. It was our first trip to Italy and Florence was our first stop. What was really nice was this hotel is just out of the center of Florence, but still close enough to walk or take the bus. There are some good restaurants in the area and the best part was they were reasonably priced and not full of tourists but rather locals from the neighborhood.
Our room was on the 3rd floor and had a private patio. It was small, but still nice to give an extended feeling to the room. Everything is updated and fresh in the room. The bed was even firm yet comfortable.
Breakfast was a really great feature. Wide variety of options to chose from and the staff is attentive to your requests.
We have no complaints about our stay and I would absolutely book the San Gallo again on a return trip to Florence.

My partner and I stayed at the San Gallo Palace from 16-21 March and enjoyed a wonderful stay.

Our room was spacious, spotless and good sized for the two of us with plenty of storage facilities. We slept well every night on comfortable beds. The bathroom was large, modern and marble.

Breakfast was very extensive with yogurts, cereals, fruit, cold meats, cheeses, croissants and a warm offering of bacon, sausages and scrambled eggs. There was something for everyone.

We ate in the bar one evening and enjoyed some pasta dishes which were light and just what we required at very reasonable prices.

All the above are great reasons to stay at the hotel but, as if that wasn't enough, what topped it all was the magnificent hotel staff. Every member of staff was pleasant, polite and helpful; and we really do mean every single person we encountered, from the chamber maids to the breakfast staff, the bartenders, porters and the desk staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the standard of service was first class. The front desk staff were very helpful with advice and guidance on how to reach places, which transport to use, recommendations for meals etc. We must make particular mention of Linda who was happy to keep trying a restaurant on the phone to book us a table and rang our room to confirm the reservation.

The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the station and 15-20 minutes from the Duomo in the centre of the city and most of the attractions; or a few minutes cab ride which will cost between 6 and 10 euro depending on traffic and luggage.

We would heartily recommend the San Gallo Palace as a marvellous hotel; very comfortable, superb value and with fantastic staff. If we return to Tuscany we will not even think about staying anywhere else.

My partner & stayed here for three nights. This hotel exceeded all my expectations! I could not fault it in any way. The hotel itself was always clean and tidy, the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful in fact they coukdn't do enough for you. The room although average in size had everything we needed. The maids came in daily & changed the bed, they replenished the lotions in the bathroom and whenever we saw them they said good morning/afternoon etc - so friendly. The choice at breakfast was fantastic and so nice, the barman was friendly and helpful. It's about 10-15 minutes walk from central Florence but it's a pleasant walk and definitely not a problem at all. When we checked out they offered to book a taxi for us but we were more than happy to walk. I really cannot fault this hotel.

Good location within walking distance to attractions. Away from the craziness of downtown, but a short walk or bus ride to attractions. Rooms were beautiful, quiet, spacious and very clean. Beautiful courtyard with shade to relax and sip a drink at the end of the day. Staff was friendly and helpful.
