Nice Hotel, tough location

San Gallo is a nice hotel that caters more to the business traveler to Florence, and not the tourist. The hotel is not close the the main sites in Florence. It was a good 30 minute walk to the Duomo/Uffizi etc. The staff is friendly and attentive. The assisted in making reservations via email in advance of the trip, and offered nice dining suggestions while we were there. If this hotel was a mile closer, it would be 4-stars.

quiet elegance

We stayed two nights at this hotel. It was a little bit of a distance to the tourist areas compared to a lot of the hotels, but worth the little walk for the quality and the price. This hotel was beautiful. It must be new or recently remodeled. It was as nice as any 4 star American hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable (although the beds were a bit hard). The bathroom had a full bathtub, which my friend and I each excitedly used after our long day of sightseeing. It also had a hairdryer and converted outlet. There was wi-fi for a fee, but it was cutting out. You could use the internet on the computer in the lobby, but that also was for a fee, which I found odd. The breakfast was nice, and we ate on a beautiful, peaceful patio.

Excellent experience in Florence!

I have stayed in Florence before, and at this hotel once before in a double room, which was a nice experience. So I was expecting another pleasant stay. However this time I had my wife and son with me, so booked a triple suite. The room turned out to be very large, with two+ rooms, and had a door that exited out onto a huge red tiled patio overlooking the Square. The amenities in the room were great, the breakfast was very good, and the front desk service was outstanding. I can do nothing but again fully recommend this hotel.

Florence 2009 @ San Gallo Palace

The hotel was beautiful, rooms are clean and well-cared. No free WIFI but only with 5€ payment - a shame - that's a feature that comes frelly in lower-rated hotels. Good service. Breakfeast was a bit of dissapointment - no salad at all, just eggs, bread cheese and cornflakes.

Nice hotel, but really out of the way

This was a very nice hotel, but it's very far from downtown, and not as close to the train station as it looked on the map. It's about a 20 minute walk to the Duomo, and the hotel staff said that's the best way to get there (in other words, there doesn't seem to be a bus route that's easy). We had an actual queen bed (as opposed to 2 twins pushed together, as many hotels had) and the room was very clean, if not large. The bathroom was very nice and it had a rain shower and spouts on the side, too. The breakfast was very good as well and we ate outside on a nice patio.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Florence restaurants require reservations. We tried to go at without, and even if there's no one in the restaurant they won't seat you without one. If you're going to a pizzeria, this isn't a problem, but if you want to eat at a restaurant you'll need to make a reservation. Also, the restaurants consistently shut down between 2 and 7 so make sure you eat lunch before then.

Great Hotel

The TV doesn't work well, but besides that it's a great hotel. Great location and parking is only 10.00 euro per day. Very clean and hotel staff were very nice and helpful.
