Panella's Residence
Ranked #67 of 657 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 July 2009

Panella's residence is brilliant. It's near all the sites you'll want to get to, very clean, a beautifully restored building and it has a really good atmosphere - very friendly and welcoming and the owner was so helpful. When you're there, check out a couple of great restaurants - Da'i Boia (go for the nutella Calzone, then spend the next day walking it off) and Zio Gigi. We'll definitely stay here again.

Submitted by DJ Mick, Michigan, USA - We spent 8 nights at the residence. Our suite had a terrace with a view of the hilltop village of Fiesole and of course the Duomo. Graziella and Nimi were most gracious and accomodating. For the days that we were not busy with our planned activities, Graziella made great recommendations on things to do and see. The Residence is located close to absolutely everything. Be prepared to walk... alot. A car is useless. Bus tickets are inexpensive and they travel everywhere.
Do some homework on what you might want to see - as there is so much to see and some of it is better seen with a reserved ticket. It will cut hours out of waiting in lines. July is hot - pack light clothing.

I decided to book with Panella's Residence based on the reviews in Tripadvisor and my husband and I were not disappointed. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to all major sites. Hostess Graziella is helpful and most accomodating. She made our reservations for the Academia and Uffizi ahead of time so we had no wait on lines and suggested great places for dinner, one of which was Zio Gigi's. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere of this restaurant so much that we became regulars.

Our suite was heavenly- warmly and tastefully decorated, with a wonderful view of the rooftops of Florence and a lovely little balcony to enjoy an afternoon or evening glass of wine. The bathroom was larger than our own back in the States.

Breakfast was always graciously presented with a variety of pastry, fruits and yogurt and the cappuccino was delicious. Panella's Residence is a wonderful place to stay in a wonderful city and Graziella is a wonderful hostess. We would definitely stay here again.

Panella's was the best accomodation on our seven stop italian trip.
Hostess Graziella was very friendly , helpful, and accomodating. She made several reservations for us, suggested itineraries and even offered to open for breakfast 1/2 hour early the day we left.

The room was large and attractive, very quiet, the bed the best of the trip. The bathroom was large and clean,. Judging from her brochure the other 5 rooms are even nicer.

Centrally located and very nice breakfast, and good coffees.
Thankyou Gratziella

My husband and I and another couple spent three great days at Panella's in late April.
Our room was spacious and very clean as was the bathroom. Breakfast was very good, lots of choices. Graziella (the owner) was so gracious and accommodating. She made reservations for us for the Accademia which was nice as we didn't have to wait in line to get in. Her suggestions for dinner were excellent, we liked Zio GiGi's so much that we went back a second night. Great food and service! We booked a cooking class through the Accidental Tourist and that was a terrific experience. So much fun, I would recommend it highly. We enjoyed meeting and talking with Graziella and her wonderful staff. We would definitely go back again.

My husband and I stayed at Panella's Residence for four nights in late March/early April 2009. Graziella (the owner) was very welcoming, greeted us at the door upon arrival. There are a total of six rooms and we were in room #45. It was very spacious and clean. The B&B itself is centrally located in a quiet street, about 5 minutes walk from the Duomo and 10-15 minutes walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station. Graziella made the best biscotti and cake for breakfast. On our last day, we had to check out early at 7 a.m. and we asked if we could have some breakfast packed for the train ride and she graciously packed her yummy biscotti and cake for us. We had such a great time there!

My partner and I stayed at Panella's and were very impressed. The B&B is centrally located around a five minute walk from the Duomo and is utterly charming. It is cosy with a lot of character because of the building's long history. Every room is spotlessly clean with great bathrooms and comfortable beds. But best of all was the hostess Graziana who made every effort to make us feel welcome, from encouraging our hesitant Italian, to recommending and indeed booking restaurants for us. This kind of hospitality is priceless and was the icing on the cake of our stay in Florence. I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B as I am sure that other guests would enjoy it as much as we did.
