"Bernini Palace"
This hotel was fantastic! It was well kept, clean with modern updates and just beautiful! The staff was always helpful and attentive giving great service. The lobby was spacious with a wonderful area to meet with other travelers in your group. A nice bar to relax in. Rooms were comfortable and bathroom was very modern. I enjoyed the breakfast every morning. A great way to start a full day of sightseeing. The location of the hotel was one of the reasons that we chose to stay there. It was within easy walking distance of everything that we wanted to see. (see below) We read a lot of great reviews of this hotel which helped us select it. Now I am writing one of those reviews. The hotel was really comfortable and the staff friendly. I would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to Florence.

"Bernini Palace"
The Bernini Palace was located in the heart of Florence. Within minutes we walked to most attractions; the Uffizzi and the Duomo. It was very convenient and close to many fine restaurants and shopping.

"perfect location, close to everything"
We had been at the Bernini on our first trip to Italy 25 years ago. Our suite was terrific and the staff very accommodating. The concierge services were great and everyone always had a smile. The location was right in the middle of everything and we walked everywhere. There was only one thing that I would criticize which was the quality of the inclusive breakfast, other than that everything was terrific

"A nice hotel close to the main piazza"
Everything with the hotel was easy. It's a very good hotel, just short of true luxury. The location was excellent. Service was very good. Room was smallish but very nice. The breakfast was very good. Bellhop service was very good. Our luggage go to the room quickly and back down early in the morning. They ordered a cab to the airport and that went smoothly. We got advice on 2 restaurants. One was very good and the other just OK. $250/night for 2 seemed reasonable considering the excellent location and very good quality.

"Best Location in Florence"
Located next to the Palazzo Vecchio and near one of the nicest piazzas in Florence is the Bernini Palazzo. Wonderful buffet breakfast with outstanding service from wait staff. Only problem with the hotel is that floor 3 and 4 do not have direct elevator access, must endure stairs... Also, the linen sheets should be replaced with egyptian cotton.... I will be back,enjoyed a two week stay!

We couldn't have been happier with this beautiful hotel. The location was excellent, just a block or so from everything we wanted to see in Florence.We were in a newly refurnished room that had a sitting room, gorgeous bathroom and canopy bed. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a first class stay in Florence. We added another day to our stay there since we liked it so well.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bernini Palace Hotel. The location was perfect for sightseeing, dining and shopping! Everything you need is quite close by. The hotel was undergoing a bit of construction during our stay, but we were informed when we arrived, and it did not interfere with our stay. There was a bit of a noise issue from late night revelers outside in the square late at night, but that was really beyond the control of the hotel. I was quite impressed by how clean our room was--especially the bathroom. It was sparkling! Our stay would have been perfect had the Hotel provided extra pillows, as there was just one relatively thin pillow per person. Otherwise, a great stay!

"The name is right, a palace in Florence."
When I first arrived, I was disappointed since the room was not ready and I had to wait for 30 minutes. But after I got into my room I understood why nobody wanted to leave. The room was so beautiful. Everything was new and in perfect condition. The hotel was clean and staff are friendly. Breakfast room was so sacred, fill with Mozart music. Everyone who enter the dinning hall would automatically whispered. They were afraid that the noise would disturb the atmosphere. But the best thing about the hotel is its location, within short walking distance to just about everything. To be in Florence is an amazing experience, but to be in Bernini Palace make it perfect. Looking forward to coming back to Florence and stay in this hotel again.

Well located in the central area of old town close to Ponte Vecchia. The hotel is walking distance to all the places you want to see in Florence. Has a very good breakfast buffet. Staff are very helpful and can get you the tickets to access the sites ahead of the lines waiting to pay for entry. We used Flornece as the center for our trips tote surrounding Towns of Pisa, Lucca, Sienna, 5 Terre, San Gimignano etc and found it to be a good focal point to start from.

The staff was always helpful and the room was great, as was the whole hotel (including the nice breakfast each morning). But the best feature of this hotel is its location, which is right in the middle of everything you want to see in Firenze. We had the least expensive room, which as expected lacked a view, but was very quiet. The hotel restaurant was mediocre, as are most hotel restaurants, but was certainly handy the evening we were too tired to go out. The Bernini met our expectation in every way.

While we only had one night at the hotel, we thoroughly enjoyed it. the hotel was a wonderful introduction to Florence, the room was very charming and clean and the location was perfect as a base to wander around the city. The breakfast was also in a lovely room and the food was good. They provide parking, which was key because we had a rental car and were great about holding our luggage both pre check-in and post check-out so that we could maximize our Florence experience before moving on to our next location on our trip.

"Great Location"
The hotel is literally behind the Palazzo Vecchio, with the Ponte Vecchio and Santa Croce church very close by. The Duomo is also within an easy walk. Around the corner is the #1 rated sandwich shop on Trip Advisor. Location is definitely key. However, because it is so central, it is a little more difficult for taxis to get to (especially from the train station), typically navigating through the throngs at the Duomo. Air conditioning in the rooms is hit and miss. We had two rooms - one was nicely air conditioned, the other next door was not. We asked repeatedly for them to increase the air (each room is controlled centrally which really begs the question why install thermostats in each room if you can't control it yourself) but it only helped marginally. There was one day when the entire hallway in our section of the hotel smelled like a sewer. Thankfully, it was only one day.

"Would Stay In Over and Over Again!!"
The Bernini Palace is a first class, five star location. The staff from the time you walk in until the time you check out are attentive to your every need and desire. Recommendations for restaurants, sights, and shopping were made based NOT on touristy things but rather great things the city of Florence has to offer. They sent us to two of the best meals we had in our 10 day trip and each was something the guide books ignored. Additionally, the room, location, and amenities covered everything you would want at a location of this caliber.

My family and I (6 of us) rented 2 rooms at this hotel and by far it was the best experience of our 2 week travels through Italy! If you are going to Florence Bernini Palace is the best place to stay!

"RIght in the heart of Florence! Loved this hotel!"
We had three rooms for five people and all were beautifully decorated with modern bathrooms and AC. They were also very quiet, considering the location. Ours however, offered an absolutely stunning view of the Duomo and other medieval towers - wish I could figure out how to post a picture here - it was the same view that a visiting dignitary would have had when they stayed there in the 1500s (That is what the hotel was originally)! The lobby is lushly decorated and we were given cards for free welcome drinks for everyone. The breakfast buffet was great and served in a room with a fresco on the ceiling. Front staff was friendly and helpful. Parking was a bit steep ($35 Euros per night), but they whisked our car away and called it out for us - and hey, you are right in the heart of Florence, right next to the Uffizi! Really don't have a negative thing to say about this hotel.

"Two night stay in Bernini Palace"
Excellent location! Right in the heart of Florence with 5 less than 5 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio and 2 minute walk to Ufizzi. Fortunate to get a free upgrade on the room and it was very spacious and nice. Breakfast was very comprehensive and quite good. No complaints at all on the hotel itself and the staff. A bit more expensive, but since we only were in FLorence for two nights, we decided that it would be worth it.

"My aching back -- no more"
Our room had the best mattress and bed linens of all the hotels that we stayed in while in Italy -- a very pleasant surprise. Beyond that, the hotel is convenient to all historic attractions. Looking back, my wife and I wish that we had availed ourselves more of the hotel restaurant. Nearby walk-in restaurants, we believe, cater to tourists with only medium quality food and service.

"One of the main highlights of my Florence stay !"
Amazing hotel - lives up to the word "Palace" in its name. It was a world of difference than my Rome hotel - which I paid the same rates. THe room here had a great view + was very roomy with 3 lovely chairs. The breakfast buffet was amazing - self service but the waiters treated you as if it was full service with full cloth linens on table and napkin. The super tall ceilings made you feel as if you were a Medici having breakfast. Wi-fi included - no stingy policy there. I have a new hotel to call home the next time I visit 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.
