Wonderful Stay

This is a very nice property situated away from the hustle and noise of the old city center and its crowds. It's an easy walk to all the sights and there is a great pastry place nearby on the walk to/from the center of town. Breakfast was good as well with a nice and varied selection of items from sliced meats, pastries, cereals, yogurts, fruit, and eggs. The staff was attentive but unobtrusive.

The hotel concierge can make reservations for you for the most visited local museums though we found that we could get in to these locations very promptly by making our own reservations right at the sites either that day or the day before without any problems.

Great Find

Had a great stay. The staff spoke English which was a great help. Everyone was helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and had plenty of space. The staff recommended a couple of restaurants, we tried them all and all were GREAT. Was able to walk everywhere, even from train station. Had an overall GREAT stay. Would stay again.

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.

Great Location! Wonderful Place to Stay!

When we went to check in to the hotel, they did not have our reservation confirmed. Thankfully, the concierge behind the desk allowed us to pull our emailed confirmation because I did not have it printed (my mistake). All worked out fine. The only downside was that they did not have internet in the rooms. You had to pay to use their computer in the lobby, a little pricey. The hotel was about a 15-20 minute walk to the river. Not bad. We always walked, except we took cabs to and from the train station.

Great hotel at perfect location

Quiet hotel and location, at walking distance from all the famous sites in Florence. We brought our 10-month old daughter, and the hotel was the perfect starting point for our walks (with stroller) into the old city. Staff was very friendly, room was great, and breakfast was the perfect start for our long days in Florence. If we ever return to Florence (we're certainly planning to), we'll be returning to this hotel for sure.

Great Hotel in Florence

My boyfriend and I visited Florence for a few days and stayed at San Gallo during the visit. It is a short bus ride from the train station which is wonderful. Due to the size of Florence we found that we could walk from the hotel to a get part of Florence for food within 20 minutes. Rooms were great and the staff was amazing! They helped with all questions and spoke many different languages. They have a wonderful breakfast buffet which kept us fueled all morning.
