"Living like royalty in Florence"
Bernini Palace made us feel like royalty for our stay. Our room was very spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was very large as well. We had an extremely comfortable bed with linen sheets. There was plenty of closet space. The staff was very helpful in getting tickets for the Uffizzi so we only had to wait 15 minutes. Breakfast was really nice […] and included just about anything that you could want and was in a lovely room that had been a parliament room. The hotel shuttle driver took us to our car rental when we left and made that an easy transfer. All the staff were most helpful and knowledgeable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"amazing hotel in Florence!!"
Amazing hotel with excellent concierge and attention to detail! Would definitely come back here on again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Avery Nice Hotel"
top-notch hotel, but not snooty. absolutely perfect location, never needed anything but our feet. Great big tub, really good water pressure. breakfast good, but not great. close by is Gusto Leo, a good restaurant and inexpensive. Mossimo on the front desk was always a gentleman and multi-lingual. Stefanie was very helpful. The wake-up call was at exactly […] the hour requested. The free internet service was a big plus for us. The beds were comffortable and had linen sheets. We would stay here again. I developed a big gelato habit...there was a gelato shop every 50 feet. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Amazing hotel! Worth every single penny spent! Everything about it was perfect. The location, the cleanliness, the staff, and the rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice 4* hotel in a great location. Hospitable staff (although the concierge could have provided better instructions on Uffizi ticket redemption). Large, clean rooms, good breakfast with very good staff. Great location-can walk to everything and take breaks from sightseeing to step into your own room on occasion.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful central location in Florence"
The hotel has a great location for exploring all the sites and shopping which Florence has to offer. Their staff is very attentive and helpful with any questions or needs you may have during your stay. Rooms are very nice with nicely sized bathroom for two people.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is extremely well-located for touring Florence. It's a block from Piazza della Signoria or the Uffizi Museum, almost across the street from the Bargello Museum, and just a few blocks to either the Ponte Vecchio or the Duomo. Better than that, it's very modern but in a 15th century palace. The rooms are spacious with large, modern bathrooms […] and the public areas are beautiful, with some stained glass windows, beautiful ceilings (particularly in the breakfast room--and the breakfast is excellent, too), and beautiful "palace-like" stairwells. The best part, though, is how warm and friendly the staff are--literally everyone with whom we interacted was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay at the Bernini Palace again and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Staying at the Bernini Palace truly enhanced our enjoyment of Florence.

"Only a few steps from the center of Florence"
I chose the Bernini Palace to start our stay in Florence because of its proximity to the Uffizzi Gallery. Since we would be walking our legs off, I thought that this would ease us into the trip. My wife was immediately charmed by the decor, charm and service of the hotel. Our room was (by choice) one of the smaller ones, but stylish and very comfortable. […] The breakfast buffet was well presented and extensive. We are happy that we chose the Bernini Palace as our introduction to the treasures of Florence. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonably priced luxury in a great location"
Outstanding hotel in the perfect location to experience everything Florence has to offer. The Bernini Palace is a great value for the high quality of the hotel. I would absolutely stay here again when we return to Florence.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved this hotel!! I didn't think I would because it appeared somewhat stuffy and baroque. And I don't know if we caught a good price but it was on par with other more expensive hotels. The breakfast staff and one desk/concierge man in particular were wonderful - very helpful and courteous. They would help you with any request. The included breakfast […] was a delicious feast - large array of hot and cold items, eggs, meats, vegetables, cheeses, many juices, several kinds of milks (soy, almond, etc), pastries, coffee, cappuccino - completely worth any up charge. The rooms are formally decorated but very nice. Ours was a bit on the small side but very comfortable and the bathroom was large/modern. Turn-down service with chocolates was a plus. Good location, very close to Ponte Vecchio, Loggia dei Lanzi, Uffizi, Piazza della Signoria (Palazzo Vecchio and Gucci museum), Florence Cathedral, and Basilica of Santa Croce. About a 9/10 euro ride from train station. I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great overall Hotel"
This hotel was so conveniently located. We were visiting our son who is studying abroad in Florence and found the Bernini in a fantastic location. We were able to walk everywhere. The staff was so helpful with tours and restaurant suggestions. Also the buffet breakfast was great!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for everyone"
Bernini Palace is a great hotel. We liked everything about it. Excellent location, breakfast was really good, the room was big and the bathroom even bigger. I stayed there with my mom and my cousin so we had an extra bed which was very comfortable. The facilities are all in good shape. As soon as you get out of the hotel there are many options to eat […] from a panini to typical food from tuscany, there is a very good restaurant called Trattoria Alfredo just a couple of minutes walking from the hotel and offers really good and typical food.

"Great place, great stay!"
We loved this hotel. Staff were wonderful and accomodations lovely. It use to be a Parliment building a few hundred years ago. The breakfast room was where they held meetings, it was gorgeous, and the food was good too. The lobby was huge for Italy and the bar service great. Concierge were very helpful in getting you where you need to go. They hire […] lots of drivers to take you out to the country or where ever you want to go where the trains and buses don't go. Get a driver if you have more than 3 people. It's a better deal than a tour. Excellent hotel! I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Everything was excellent. Staff friendly and very helpful.Only issue was size of one person room,very small but otherwise first class. Breakfast was also excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Im going to be very short on this cause everything, yes everything, was 10/10. This place has it all: excellent staff, great location, good rooms, AMAZING breakfast, and small details that make you feel special. My first time in Firenze and for sure every time I shall return I will consider Bernini Palace as my first option.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Gem in Florence"
Great location. Friendly staff and eclectic design. Would visit again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Can't say enough about the helpful staff, beautiful rooms and large bathrooms. The comfortable lounge area and bar were also great. The location perfect. Have stayed in one other hotel in Florence which while the same price did not measure up to the Bernini Palace for rooms or location. If we get back to Florence this is where we will stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hub and great place to stay."
The hotel has a beautiful decor blending old with new. It is very well preserved. I felt very secure. The hotel has an excellent breakfast. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The room was small but the bed was very comfortable. I stayed on the 5th floor and it was very quiet. The hotel is a perfect hub for shopping all around you. Very close […] to lots of restaurants.

"Lovely hotel close to Santa Croce"
Hotel Bernini Palace was beautiful! The service was prompt and helpful, the location was ideal, close to all must-see sights, but in a quiet location, not a busy thoroughfare. My only complaint was that the heating system was set so that my room could not be cooled at all and it was consistently at 20-25 degrees celcius, so warm that I had difficulty […] sleeping at night. Also, it wasn't until I talked to the third person at the front desk that I found out that it couldn't be changed. Other than that (which was kind of big as I get grouchy when I don't get enough sleep 6 nights in a row), everything was first class. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My mother and I stayed here in Oct and couldn't have been more pleased with how lovely the Classic room was. Very clean with a luxurious spa sized tub. Breakfast was good. They had prosecco for mimosas, and even had a few gluten free options. The location couldn't have been more convenient. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I like the location. Franco at the bar was very nice and wine/drinks reasonable. I would prefer down blanket instead of existing. The laundry was expensive and wasn't very clean. Overall nice and I would recommend the hotel and would return.Genuine Expedia guest review
Booked 3 nights in the "Deluxe" section - check in and entered a room that smelled a little bit like sewage - the windows faced in internal courtyard/sounounding buildings with no view - But nice room. Inquired about a new room and they gave us one on floor two facing externally with a beautiful view of the town . It was the nicest room in the hotel […] and was a beautifully appointed. - high ceilings, nicely decorated and spacious. Breakfast was brilliant - meats, cheeses fruit and impeccable service - just don't show up late (after 10:30am). Best hotel location possible as close to the center of town as you can get. Valentina and the entire staff offered perfect service and she booked two beautiful tours for us. Would highly recommend this hotel - just ask for and a room with a view to the external side of hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Feel like royalty while visiting Florence."
We just completed a 5 night stay at this wonderful hotel. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite, and it was amazing. The room was huge by European standards, and the bathroom with a full size bathtub/shower was very comfortable. The double sink left plenty of room to get ready in the morning. The bed was very comfortable. The decor made us feel like visiting […] royalty! The breakfast buffet was very nice and included hot selections as well as sparkling wine. The cappuccino was amazing. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. I can't recommend this place enough, and I hope to return one day! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect place to stay on Florence"
We stayed here because of all the good reviews we read It was all pretty much spot on fantastic hotel great location friendly staff clean beautiful rooms with sufficient space. Excellent breakfast If you read reviews about noise in Florence, it's true and it's not the hotel's fault. It's just that all the walls of the buildings are made of stone so […] anybody who's out drinking night loud will be heard regardless of where you stay. I highly recommend bringing silicone putty earplugs which resolves the issue Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very attractive and close to all the main sites"
Hotel has a lot of attractive design touches and well maintained. Breakfast service is impeccable. Rooms are small, but not any more than rooms in Europe in general. Right in the heart of the main town center. Close to Uffizi and other attractions. All things considered, very pleased with hotel and service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall, the stay was prett average. Great location and close to all the major attractions in Florence. The staff was fairly helpful with requests. The main issues I had were with the cleanliness of the rooms. It's pretty clear the hotel went under a recent renovation and skimped on some items. The finishings look cheap (paint was off, fixtures were […] plastic, mold in bathrooms) and it's clear the hotel is trying to be something it's not. The overall decor was tacky and I had a mosquito problem in my room (woke up with bites and management was not helpful). This place is not a 4 star hotel as its classified, but probably closer to a 3 star hotel. For the amount paid, I would look elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous Hotel in a Perfect Location!"
Bernini Palace Hotel is a fabulous hotel which exceeded all our expectations! The service we received at this hotel was outstanding during our entire 4 night stay this month. Every staff person we encountered was professional, courteous, and promptly attentive. The breakfast room was beautiful - a truly pleasant environment in which to begin each day. […] The breakfast room staff were superior to any we have encountered in our travels. The extensive breakfast buffet was excellent and, to our great surprise, included scrambled eggs and bacon - a rarity at European hotels. Our room and bathroom were quite spacious, nicely furnished and decorated, and immaculately clean. We especially appreciated the beautiful, pure linen sheets and shams. The exquisite turn-down service each evening was 'first class'. The only negative comment would be the problem of water leaking on the bathroom floor due to having only a partial shower enclosure - which seems typical for European hotels. Bernini Palace is just steps away from the Piazza della Signoria - a delightful piazza for enjoying outdoor dining. (Also close is beautiful Piazza della Repubblica.) The hotel is within easy walking distance to all the major tourist sites in Florence. The Uffizi Galleria and Palazzo Vecchio are located at Piazza della Signoria. We look forward to future stays at Bernini Palace Hotel. In our opinion, it absolutely deserves 4 very bright stars! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location in the heart of Florence."
We were extremely well pleased with the location, quality, decor, and service offered by the Bernini Palace. Even though we were staying in the center of the action - adjacent to the Palazzo Vecchio and Uffzi Gallery and just a block or two from the Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio - we found our room to be exceptionally quiet and comfortable. […] We found the breakfast buffet to be excellent and the service outstanding. We had especially good service from Bartolo, who was both a bartender at the lounge off the lobby and a maitre d' at the breakfast buffet. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
