      Historical Traveler Reviews Panella'S Residence Florence

      Great hosts and nice sized rooms


      We were originally to stay at Il Villino but they over booked, so we were moved here. And at the end of our stay we were really glad we got moved! Gratsiella and Guiseppe were wonderful hosts- very warm and caring- Il Vilino felt very touristy as when we were there (as one one morning we had breakfast there) it was full of Americans. I'm not sure if they cater more to the American tourist, but we liked the international flavor of Panella's as when we stayed there were quite a few couples from around the world. A more International feel? The bedroom we had was huge- more suite like- and the bathroom was very large, by european standards. The showers were great- hot water and awesome shower pressure! Gratsiella gave us recommendations for dinner, and we really had some wonderful meals- she also was very gracious in calling us cabs and helping us find certain stores we wanted to find antiques in. While we initially were disappointed that we did not get to stay at Il Villino, we will return to Panella's Residence the next time we visit Florence! It was wonderful!

      Excellent place to stay


      We stayed here for 3 nights and would definitely return. It is situated about 5 minutes walk from the Duomo. The room was large, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Excellent power shower. Comfortable bed. The hosts were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Home made cakes for breakfast and lovely hot cappucino. Mini bar with soft drinks in the room. Had no complaints. Should really keep it a secret so that it won't be full next time, but won't do that because the panella's deserve to be popular.

      A great B&B in Florence


      We spent 3 nights at Panella's Residence. It was one of the best B&B experiences I've ever had. The room was large, scrupulously clean, and had lots of cupboard/closet space. The bathroom was modern and functioned well. Graziella was charming, helpful, spoke reasonably good English so that we could get our needs met. She made a relatively large breakfast (and tasty!) by Italian standards: meat, homemade rolls and cakes, orange juice, espresso or capucchino. The location is near the Duomo, on a quiet street. We walked everywhere. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

      Great Location, Super Hospitality, Very Clean


      There are 6 rooms, with newly remodeled American style bathrooms (shower door etc). The rooms were pretty large and nicely decorated with Italian style furniture without being cluttery. There was AC and TV.

      Breakfast was a roll, cake, yogurt, and the best cappuccino!

      The neighborhood felt quite safe, and it was on a quiet street near the Duomo. The owners were so sweet and helpful. They spoke enough English to make our stay comfortable, but casual conversation was a little more difficult. They took care of dinner reservations for us each night--all of their recommendations were within walking distance and were top notch.

      We walked everywhere from the hotel.

      I would recommend this B&B without hesitation. We had a fantastic stay. We paid EUR 165 for one of the larger rooms.

      Excellent value


      My wife and three daughters stayed at Panellas Residence for two nights in April. Our two rooms were spacious as well as spotless. Graziella and Guiseppe made us feel like family right from the beginning. Breakfast included excellent cappuchino and homemade cakes.

      The location is very convenient (two blocks from the Duomo and a ten minute walk to the "David") but what really made our stay special was the warmth and care of our hosts. Graziella gave us excellent restaurant recommendations (try Za-Za's for outstanding Steak Florentine) and went out her way to make sure we were comfortable.

      An overall excellent experience.

      Florence home away from home


      A charmng, antique filled "bed & breakfast", former family residence of the owners, located on Via della Pergola, a short two minute walk from the Duomo. Graziella Panella(speaks English) and her husband are charming hosts that act as your surrogate family in Florence. The rooms are spotless, the rates are reasonable for Florence, and the location is fantastic. Graziella will help you with Uffizi Gallery reservations and recommendations for authentic Tuscan cooking. We just returned from ten days in Rome and Florence and the Panella's made us feel like family. The website for Panella's Residence is -------------------.

      Why I Decided to Study Abroad

      I was having boy problems and I thought it'd be a good idea to flee the country, and so I started my study abroad application two days before the deadline. I'm halfway joking about the boy problems, but I'm kind of notorious for running away from my problems and never being content with where my life is. But really, life never stops, even when I am halfway across the world.

      However, I feel like ...

      ... lazy on the day I arrived in Florence, one of the guys in Zurich mentioned an application called Showbox that I could get on my phone that would allow me to watch some somewhat newer movies. And apparently when you've been traveling as long as I have and haven't seen many movies in the mean time it seems like a good time to catch up and relax. I watched quite a few movie in the last two weeks (me writing this on the 16th) though usually after a ...

      ... was mainly a sculptor and the only other "painting" he did was the fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. These were the big things we saw in the museum, everything else Clauss just told us a little bit about and it was very entertaining of course. I had two cappuccinos this morning but this guy still had 3x the energy I did. Anyways, we saw many paintings of the Virgin Mary and Jesus. It was very common for them to be the subjects of paintings at the ...

      ... told me about his love in Rome; "you have to just cut ties, remember the great moments, and let it be." So I did, goodbye to the Dutch brothers, we had the best night in Rome. Last day - I'll keep this short and sweet because the pictures tell more of the story. I visited Vatican City, Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and Castle of St. Angelo. A new friend from the estrogen hostel was alone and wanted to go do something! She walked with me to the Vatican, waited in the que ...
