Wonderful hotel, excellent staff, rooms are small but very well appointed. nice wellness center, good breakfast....Highly recommend

Wonderful hotel and enjoyed our stay. Very clean and nice staff

The hotel staff were all super kind. Breakfast was good too. However, the heating system makes loud noise that keeps me from falling asleep. After speaking with the front desk staff at about 2am in the morning, they came checked on the noise and moved me into another room, which didn't have the issue. When I checked out, I mentioned the heater noise issue to the front desk and it seems that this was a known issue. Others must have complained about it too and still those rooms are given to guests.

This hotel is within walking distance to the train station and many must see attractions. Laundromat is less than a block away and the central market only 5 minutes away.

Very nice, modern, immaculate hotel slightly off the beaten bath yet within easy walking distance to everything worth seeing in Florence. Excellent breakfast and afternoon "tea" by the pool an unexpected bonus!

The hotel was fantastic. Great location and staff was very accommodating I would highly recommend this hotel for your visit to Florence

Excellent hotel. Staff very helpful. Ideal location for excursions, duomo, Florence sights. Beautiful setting

This hotel was wonderful. It's not right in the center of town but is just a short walk. It's also located close to the train station, which is nice for day trips. Florence is a wonderful city and very busy so having this hotel with a peaceful garden courtyard area was so nice and relaxing.

Great boutique hotel not far from the train station. Easily walkable even with luggage. Wonderful garden/courtyard. Excellent breakfast. We did not use the spa/health center but it looked wonderful. Staff was superb. Hotel and rooms were very clean. Highly recommend this hotel.

I already expected having a wonderful experience on my first stay at Palazzo Castri, from the photos, but even so was not anticipating such an astounding hotel. It is beautiful, clean, the staff are superb, and the garden is stunning, even down to the resident cat Pino who strolls around outside. It is super convenient to the Fortezza and also downtown and overlooks a park, so it is a quiet area on a street that closer to the station becomes very busy and bustling. The housekeeping was excellent, down to actually cleaning my laptop cover! The breakfast was very good quality and variety and the wait and bar staff are attentive without being obtrusive. I plan to stay here again and hope, for purely selfish reasons, that it remains fairly undiscovered so I don't have problems re-booking it. The best hotel I have stayed at in Florence.
