De Rose Palace Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Traditional Italian hotel, near train station and located on quiet neighborhood near US embassy. We spent three days in Florence and it provides us place to rest peacefully after walking journey. It don't have what you look at design hotel with new rooms and lots of amenities. It's simple and oriented for bed and breakfast, which is very good indeed. Sympathy is present on all employees.

I arrived by train from Rome to SMN florence station. Getting to the hotel is about less than 10 minutes. Make sure to have good luggage wheels since there are a lot of cobblestones. The hotel is located in front of a nice small park. The reception was small but very helpful. They gave me a great tip to get to Pisa. From SMN take the train to Pisa S. rosorre, the leaning tower will be 5 minutes away. The elevator to the room was small. The room is opened by a heavy key which you have to return everytime you leave. The window in the room provided a nice breeze and a view of the park. The room was clean and small with a separate room for the bathroom. The bathroom was small but functional with a small closet like shower. The door of the room is very heavy I jammed my fingers. The breakfast room is located in the basement. Good selection and prompt service. I was close to the sights by walking. Take a walk by ther river which is 2 blocks away and enjoy beautiful sunsets. I discovered that the US embassy is 1 block away. I had a great stay.

We booked a very reasonably priced budget break to Florence with British Airways and stayed at De Rose Palace for 4 nights. We expected a basic room with no frills but it was much better than expected. Good sized room with comfortable bed, decent storage and in-room safe in a fairly quiet area 15 minutes walk from Central attractions and 10 ministers from both bus and train connections. The staff here are pleasant and helpful and breakfast is fine for stoking up for a day of walking & sight seeing. There are restaurants in the area if you don't want to trek back to the centre.

This hotel is located in a quiet neighbourhood, 15 min walk to the main attractions of Florence. It is clean, comfortable, the rooms are nicely decorated and the staff is helpful. Wi-fi is slow and the breakfast is good, although not diverse. I had a pleasant stay here and I would reccomend this hotel.

I loved my stay here! It's so Florentine! The only issue I had is with leaving my keys at the front desk when I left for Venice. I was never told that the reason was because they use the key to turn the electricity off in the rooms. I had sliced deli meat in the fridge for dinner when I returned. When I returned it was ruined so I had to throw it out and my wine was warm. Thankfully, the front desk had ice (unusual for Italy) and so I was able to cool my glass of wine down. But I'd definitely recommend this hotel. It's so close to everything.

Reasonable staff at this hotel with a good size room including a cute porta cot for our 9 month old. Close to what is needed with good transportation options. Strange that if you go out for any period you MUST leave the room key at reception. Tea and coffee in the room but no milk. Female at reception is very welcoming and speaks fluent English and Italian with loads of tourist information. Breakfast needs a bit more thought though in terms of hot food to compliment the bacon and eggs but it is still eat as much as you want

Small but very nice hotel. Clean and comfortable. Although the hotel is small, the breakfast quality is pretty good. If you want a comfortable hotel near the main train station and tourist sites then this would be an ideal hotel. Great value too!!

Nice small family run hotel good location staff helpful no swimming pool good if you want to travel about the city easy walking to the city centre would go there again .very quiet street very old fashioned furniture can eat as much as you want for breakfast would give this hotel 3/4 star

De Rose Palace Hotel is perfectly situated near all you want to do and see in Florence. It is a 10 min walk from main rail station, and also the bus terminal which runs direct to the airport. The hotel itself is beautiful, the rooms are lovely and clean and well decorated. Check in was easy and quick, and although we arrived much later than we should have, we were greeted with a warm smile from the reception staff who were really lovely and helpful. Breakfast is great, with selection of cereals, pastries, fresh fruit, yoghurt, various tea and coffee, all in all more than enough to set you up for the day before walking around the delights of Florence, which are also just a 10 minute stroll along the river, which is just 2 streets back from the De Rose Palace. We would certainly recommend De Rose Palace for a stay in Florence, and will return one day, for sure. Thank you so much for helping make our trip so special !

Hotel is located near the old city so you can walk to almost every attraction. It's an old building but rooms are so well decorated! There's no parking but the hotel offers a valet parking in the area which is not cheap. If you stay here during the weekend, there's a public parking which is free from Saturday 8pm to Monday 8am. Breakfast is also excellent but the space where it's served is not very big so maybe you need to wait or come back later. It also offers a very good wifi connection.
