      Historical Traveler Reviews Palazzo Magnani Feroni Florence

      Excellent choice


      We loved the Palazzo Magnani Feroni. It is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. It is not cheap, but considering the prices of hotels in Florence, it is reasonable for what you get. Our room was huge, actually a living room with a seperate bedroom. The front desk was very helpful in making reservations. The location on the "other" side of the Arno was still very close to everything. The view from the top floor bar was breath taking. Try the restaurant "Dantes" very close to the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel.

      Totally over-priced


      The cost of a suite was 590 euro or $730/night but the quality of the hotel was two star at best. Our suite was on two levels with stairs between the living room and bedroom. The rooms were dark and dreary with no view. The street noise was loud and a fan rumbled behind the bedroom wall. Floors were brick. The shower flooded the bathroom each day. The elevator did not work. The parking was $43.75 per night and they lost our car for more then one hour. When the car finally arrived back at the hotel someone other then a hotel employee was driving. The stay was a disaster. I would never recommend this hotel at any price.

      Little princes and princesses love the Palazzo Magnani Feroni


      We stayed at the Palazzo Magnani Feroni in January 2004 and enjoyed it very much. We were travelling with kids of 10,7 and 2 and were concerned that they may not be welcome there, but we needn't have been.The decor is truly palatial, the welcome and service delightful and the location absolutely outstanding. The roof terrace is particularly special and in the summer would be a wonderful place to linger in the evenings.The Palazzo is both intimate and generous, there are not many rooms and the rooms are outstandingly large for Florence.

      One small criticism is of noise transference from the rooms into the "galleries" off which they sit, but there are plenty of other places to relax if that's a problem.This is a very "old Europe" experience and not a glitzy and brash type of hotel. Service is elegant and quiet and not in-your-face. We all loved it, particulary our two elder kids who after visiting lots of palaces around Europe were surprised that they were allowed to sit on the chairs in this palace !! We unhesitatingly recommend it.

      Palazzo Magnani Feroni---absolutely perfect


      Absolutely perfect, with the highest possible standards---in the same class as the Connaught in London, but in the context of a small palace in Florence. I spent a week at the Palazzo Magnani Feroni in March, 2004, while in Florence doing some house-hunting in advance of moving there. Everything about this hotel was perfect. I enjoyed a huge suite, where it was a pleasure to waste an hour or two; there were also wonderful public rooms. There are lovely tiled floors everywhere. This is a hotel that could only exist in Florence, unlike many others that could really be almost anywhere. The bedroom linens were especially good. There is a wonderful young staff of considerable intelligence at dealing with complex faxes, messages, and the sort of details that can make a big difference. This hotel will make every other hotel in Europe look second-best.

      A Tuscan Jewel!


      A friend and I stayed at the Palazzo in August 2003. As much as I had wanted to return to the Excelsior, I could not justify paying the rate.

      We found an internet special at the Palazzo and decided to take a chance. High risk, high return.

      We still "get weepy" when we think of our three nights at this exceptional hotel. The fresco-covered 'Smerelda Suite in which we stayed is spacious and comfortable -- and it's the smallest suite in the Palazzo. The common areas are elegant.

      The helpful and knowledgeable staff--everyone one of them--provide incomparable service. We decided at the last minute to rent a car to drive through Tuscany to Sienna. No problem. One of the concierge staff spent two hours on the phone searching and bargaining on our behalf.

      Restaurant recommendations were on-target.

      Other special touches include white-gloved service in the breakfast room and at the roof-top bar and Bulgari bath products.

      You won't be taking a risk by choosing the Palazzo. You'll only enjoy the best that Florence offers.

      As good as it gets


      Unbeatable. Perfect location, exquisite suites and the warmest of welcomes and service. If you'd like to feel like a well loved member of an aristocratic family, stay at the Palazzo.

      Palazzo Magnani Feroni Stay


      We stayed here in August 2003 for our honeymoon.It was like having our own palace. There are only a few rooms so we never really saw any other guests. The rooftop bar has a beautiful view of the city. We would highly recommend it to anyone.

      Very Very Nice


      Stayed here 3 nights on arrival in Italy then again one night prior to departure (upgraded as we were returning guests and space was available). Nice to be greeted by name, warm friendly reception, reservations made without hesitation (or cost), genuine hospitality. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful, your choice of many items. The in-room information was accurate for both shopping and restaurants, again reservations made by the front office. Outstanding decor and comfort, would stay here again without hesitation. A most pleasant change from a 'regular' hotel.

      Terrific choice


      We recently returned from Florence, (March 2003) Italy where we stayed at the Palazzo Magnani Feroni. It's like being a guest in someone's grand home. Everything is personalized. You don't feel like an actual tourist in a "hotel", yet the lovely hotel staff will attend your every touristy need! The rooms are clean and very spacious and the feel of the place is very Italian. Breakfast is plentiful. There is nice gym, and the location is fine. A five minute walk to the center. If you're looking for a different kind of experience and don't want to stay in a typical hotel, with the typical small rooms, and large groups of people, this is a wonderful choice. I highly recommend it.

      Your own Palace in Florence


      If you want to be treated like royalty, then this is the place for you in Florence. The luxury and service at this 11 suite hotel is beyond any expectation. From choosing the scent of the soap in your room to the champagne and frest fruit delivered on arrival, all the staff went "above and beyond" to ensure our stay was perfect.

      The deluxe suites are approx. 1100 s.f. with 30 ft. ceilings and are filled with art and antiques. Breakfast is served from 7:30 - 10:30 and is enough to keep you going for most of the day.

      The concierge will reserve museums, make dinner

      reservations, hire drivers, offer sightseeing options,

      and actually booked (and picked up) train tickets

      for us.

      The location is perfect...just minutes away by foot from all the sights and shopping Florence has to offer.

From here we then visited the Basilica of St Croce, where we saw the tombs of both Michelangelo and Galileo Galilei. Paul, Maddie and Sarah decided they needed another vertical challenge, so they went back to the Duomo in the afternoon to climb to the top of the Dome, even higher than the bell tower. ..whilst Adele ...

      Took off from Lucca to Florence via Pisa. Stopped in on the Piazza del Miracoli to see the leaning tower and Basilica. All the buidings have been fashioned in marble and look exquisite. We decided not to attempt the climb in the tower.

After lots of walking in and out of alleys full of character and a strong Italian atmosphere (which was probably my favorite out of all European countries). I found a nice little restaurant that seemed to be run by a father and son. I was enticed by this place because the father was outside talking with passer-bys and he convinced me to come sit down with his flattery. His nice looking, Italian ...
