TravelPod Member ReviewsStrozzi Palace Hotel Florence
This hotel is conveniently located within the city centre - right around the corner from the Piazza della Repubblica. From here you are within walking distance of all of Florence magnificent sites, food outlets and shopping district. The hotel itself is quite satisfactory - cosey environment and friendly staff.

Historical Traveler Reviews Strozzi Palace Hotel Florence
So the rooms are modern, jacuzzi tubs, spacious, clean, bedets, the whole 9. We were on our honeymoon and they provided a free bottle of wine, as well as service with a smile. Great location within walking distance of everything, David, Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi... very handy, highly recommend!
What a wonderful hotel!
The Strozzi Palace was in a fantasic location. The staff was very personable and made you feel at home. Every morning we woke up to the sound of an accordian playing on the street corner below are window. It was wonderful! The vespas were a bit loud. But, where ever you go in Italy, the vespas are loud. The breakfast was included and servered in the lobby with a wide selection of pastries and meats for panninis. Would definitely stay there again.
Great hotel in the heart of the city
What a great find in Florence! Very close to all the major sight and reasonably priced. We got a deluxe double room which was very spacious and the hotel rooms were extremely clean. My only minor complaint was that given its central location, sometimes the noise from the streets below were relatively loud especially when party revellers were going home. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and really impressed me and my family. They helped in arranging tours and booking great restaurants in the city that are not tourist traps and serve way better food. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay at the Strozzi and will definitely stay here when we come back to Florence.
What a great hotel!
We stayed here May 8 & 9, 2004. Highly recommended!! Super location right in heart of central Florence. Lovely rooms, nice bath, really wonderful staff, good breakfast, great value for the money. We had a superior room--small but comfy. Consider spending more for a deluxe, to get more space. But you are not in your room much, anyway! Would definitely stay here again.
Room with a view?
On the whole this hotel is ok. A superb location and a nice simple breakfast with very polite and friendly serving staff. However there were a few problems. On arrival, we booked through expedia, we were shown a room, on the 4th floor. The room would have struggled to be a 2 star. Not a 4 star room as promised most certainly.It was as dark as dark can be, even with lights on.Whilst it was clean, it reminded me of a student bed-sit. Mis-matched furniture and a bathroon as big as a postage stamp. However after voicing my concerns about the room we were moved to a beautiful 4 star room, with an Italian maple wood bed and wardrobe, plus a jacuzzi bath and gorgeous window drapes. Some difference. When booking in make sure you don't accept the 4th floor. It will make all the differnce to your stay.
Well placed hotel
The hotel is within 10 minutes walking from all the sights of Florence.
Be sure to book a deluxe room as the standard rooms are quite small The jaccuzi mentioned by the hotel is not a proper one,but jets from the side of the shower.Also,although the hotel claims to have a bar,it does not. We stayed from 18 to 21 March 2004,when the weather was unusually hot.The hotel does not switch on the air conditioning until late April.They say this is to comply with Florence anti-pollution laws;however,other establishments had theirs switched on. Overall I would recommend this hotel as it is so well placed.
Very nice hotel
First of all, a four star hotel in Europe is like a three star hotel in the US. That having been said, the service here is excellent. The front desk personel are very helpful and very friendly. The bellboy is very cute. Our room was beautiful. The staff was so accomodating. The days when we slept until the afternoon and the maid staff had left, the hotel would wait until we left and then would clean up our room for us while we were out. We felt so welcome here and had a great stay. The hotel is located in the middle of the historic center of Florence--only meters from the Duomo and a short 5 minute walk to the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, and all the other sites in centeral Florence. We got a discounted rate and were very pleased with the value.
Central Firenze cracker
Central Firenze, all major sites within walking distance, especially the top end designer shops if you're into that sort of thing. The rooms were excellent and very well appointed with attention to details and a massive bed. The jacuzzi bath was a welcome treat after a day of culture and walking around firenze. The only down sides were the extra parking charge of 25 euros per day which was a real kicker at bill time as not mentioned at time of booking. The breakfast was a bit clinical (pre-packaged stuff), but edible. However, good value for money and we would stay again.
Great location and a modern room
Having experienced problems at old hotels I found Strozzi Palace hotel which was new. The rooms were very big compared to most European hotels, very clean, and modern. Selected rooms have a jacuzzi as well and it was wonderful sitting in the tub after all the walking! The location was good too, close to the Piazza della Repubblica, but off the main street so it was quiet at night. It's located pretty much in the middle of the popular sightseeing places and you can walk everywhere. The only problem was that you have to go up a flight of stairs to get to the elevator which takes you to reception so if you have lots of luggage you'll need to go up to reception and get someone to help you with your bags. The breakfast room was small but the room was nice and the food was fine. I would definitely stay here again.

... amazing distractions. Yes, writing always helps, but I also live in Florence and I can walk out the door, take a walk, and see some of the most beautiful views that people from all around the world travel to see. Why should I even have any other concerns? Except for that I really can not wait until it gets warmer!
Good news of the day: I've finally figured out how to unlock my apartment door by myself.
... that Italy has more cars than Copenhagen, with which seemed like pretty aggressive drivers as well. After being on the bus for a little, we got to the center part of Rome, with beautiful buildings and statues, pizzerias on every corner, and multiple gelato shops on each street..yeah I'm in trouble.

... sword that was from 1351 - wow! The history.. the elegance. Wow.
We finished our exploration of the crypt and headed for the giotto bell tower. It was included in our complex ticket. The line wasn't too long so we got in fairly quickly.
The stairs were so narrow and short. Crazy!
And of course as people go up, others come down. That means, impatience. There is an obvious informal system that should happen, but people just don't follow it. You get the ones that ...
