San Gallo Palace Hotel, Florence
We had a very pleasant time in Florence. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful all the time. Thank you for everything.

Nice hotel near the Piazza della Liberta
The people were very nice who were working at the hotel. They spoke very good English too. The breakfast was very good! The complimentary water was nice. The bed was comfortable and the rooms were sound proof...the only noise we heard were kids in the hallway. One morning we weren't given enough towels, but they gladly rectified that the next day by giving us extra. The shower was nice and big and the jet sprays were really nice! The hotel was very clean. The only suggestion I would make for the place is to give more specific directions to their parking area. We had a difficult time finding it! Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay.

San Gallo Palace Hotel, Florence
We cannot say enough nice things about the San Gallo Palace. The entire staff was warm, knowledgeable and eager to make our stay in Firenze perfect, and they did. Just to get it out of the way, on the "con" side of the ledger a) some of the fixtures could use a bit of an upgrade (dark stain in the tub, sticking flushometer on the toilet) and b) the mattress was a bit hard, but that's it. We loved the location, just off the Piazza Della Liberta because, although you're about a twenty minute walk from the Duomo and the heart of the old city, you're away from the tourists and really living amongst the locals, so you really get a feel for the city and the culture as it is lived day to day. The hotel has a shuttle service that runs to and from the historic district for 2 Euros each way, which is definitely cheaper than a taxi, though you're limited to the schedule. Our room was spacious, elegant, clean and quite comfortable overall. The complementary breakfast was delicious and filling, and fueled our morning's activities, and in the late afternoon, we came back for a relaxing happy hour on the outside patio. But what made our stay so pleasant and special was the genuine warmth of people like Lorenzo, Julia, Jonathan and the entire staff. We hope to be returning to Firenze at least once per year for both business and vacation and we're very much looking forward to staying here again. Mille grazie per tutti to the entire San Gallo Palace staff.
