Borghese Palace Art Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2009

I recently stayed at this hotel for a university study tour and the hotel was great. We were put in to rooms with another person, of which most of us hadn't met before and the double beds were made up into single beds side by side. As I hadn't even met the person I was sharing with I was not comfortable sleeping next to them, so put my mattress on the floor and was quite happy to sleep there. The next day when I came back to the room, the staff had organised a single bed for us in our room so as to not have to sleep on the floor, without even having to ask. Also on two mornings we were required to leave early, and would miss breakfast, but the staff organised breakfast bags us to take with us. The staff were amazing and really contributed to us having an amazing experience in Florence. Thanks to Yanni, Mateo and Nicko for a great time, it is holiday I will never forget.

My wife and I had just gotten married in Positano and one of our stops for our honeymoon was a few days in Florence. It was originally only 3 days but due to the exceptionally helpful front desk staff member, Yanni, we extended our stay. He went over and above what is generally expected of hotel staff and made our stay in Florence a fantastic experience. He would constantly offer to make our life easy by booking us into museums, restaurants, anything so we would avoid ques or wasting our time. He also understood how much I wanted to go to the Cinque Terre region (2 hours away) and arranges for a private driver to take us there and return us to the hotel. Due to our schedule, if Yanni had not offered to do this, I would have missed this sensational little region on the coast of Italy. The hotel was in a great position, the breakfast was perfect. An overall fantastic experience in this beautiful city. I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody, particularly English speakers through Yanni's exceptional graps of the English language.

Location was very good....close to attractions and dining/drinking.
The hotel was a very updated, nice place - small rooms, much like what you'd find in NYC.
Pros: Great staff - especially the guy who works late night/early morning. They were wonderful!!!
Cons: worst - shower- ever.

This hotel is was one of the few bargains that we experienced in Italy. The room was quite large for European standards, and everything was spotless and new. The hotel has a very modern look throughout. The location was perfect, we walked everywhere. The staff went out of their way to be helpful, and would check the next time they saw us, and inquire whether we liked their dinner suggestions, etc. Breakfast buffet was one of the better in Italy. They had a happy hour with free cocktails both nights we were there.

We stayed here for our honeymoon this june and absolutely loved it. The staff were fantastic and very helpful. They gave us a bottle of bubbly for our wedding which we had on the roof terrace overlooking a beautiful florence skyline.
One of the best hotels to stay in if you are in Florence. Grazie Mille!

My wife and I stayed here in early May and were very happy with our stay. The decor of the hotel and the rooms was pleasing (as long as you like a modern art decor). The staff was always friendly and courteous, and the hotel was well situated to walk to any of the major tourist destinations in Florence. The breakfast buffet was better than many other hotels in Italy that we have experienced. Finally, there is a rooftop dining area that you can have breakfast or dinner at. The setting is intimate and romantic, so make sure you reserve it a day or two in advance.
