    Historical Traveler Reviews San Gallo Palace Hotel Florence

    Good place to stay!!


    This place is a little bit far from the main train station but once we got there, it was worth it. The rooms were what we expected from a 4star hotel. We really enjoyed the friendly staff and the buffet breakfast that was served. We would stay here again.

    What a value!


    We stayed at the San Gallo Palace just last week for 4 nights days. We booked a superior room.The hotel used to be a private house and has been renovated last year!!The rooms are not large, but you will find all the comfort you need.The bathrooms are not very large either, but the attention to details is excellent.Each room has a small flat panel TV with integrated internet access.The staff is fast and very freindly and help you anyway they can.The hotel is located about 10 min walk from the Duomo.I would suggest the San Gallo Palace to anybody travelling to Florence. Great pick for the value!!

    Excellent Value!


    We stayed at the San Gallo for seven nights in late September. Florence is a city we visit for business and pleasure several times each and we have stayed in many hotels, always hoping to find one we could adopt as our "regular" home away from home.

    The rooms are spacious and elegantly appointed. The bathrooms are quite luxurious! We had a superior room with private terrace and it was tranquil and very comfortable. The bar and breakfast were lovely and comfortable. We only had breakfast two mornings but felt that it was more than adequate.

    Service levels were high and the staff is courteous and well trained. The hotel is impeccably clean and well maintained.

    Best of all - at least for us - was the residential location. Piazza della Liberta is not part of the tourist mainstream and therefore we were able to leave the madness of the Duomo far behind.

    We have already book at the San Gallo for our winter visit and plan to make it "our" hotel.

    Fabulous Hotel


    Wow, this hotel was great! It is new and very clean. Our room was small but had all the modern conveniences. The hotel is sort of on the edge of Florence but within a 10-15 minute walk of most attractions. We walked at night and felt perfectly safe. This hotel was by far the best value for our money in all of Italy. We highly recommend this hotel to others.

    Fantastic !


    We have 4 nights at San Gallo Palace on august 2004. San Gallo is a perfect hotel, beautiful design, very good service. Rooms are very confortable and had all necessary equipements (internet, satellite TV, mini bar, ....). The satff is very helpful and professionnal.

    The Breakfast is the best breakfast we had in italy (fresh fuit juce, fruits, all sorts of bread, very high quality products).

    The price regading quality is excellent .

    The only little problem is that the hotel is 15 minutes walking to the heart of Florence ! but one of the most pleasures of Florence is Walking ; and if we don't like walking, ther is a stop bus near the hotel.

    I highly recommand this hotel !

    ... looked absolutely gorgeous with the lights on the bridges and the Ponte Vecchio! Then we wandered around and met up with Kate, Shelby, and Allie at our favorite place: Gusta Pizza for pizza and wine!!!

    I'm enjoying my time here and I can't believe it has already been 2 months! I'm so happy with everything that I've been doing and seeing and all the experiences and memories that I am making! I never want to come home!!!


    Shopping and the Duomo in Florence

    ... I have had pj shorts – bit cold lately though. I also bought a belt, socks and camisole – it is getting cooler. We walked around the market areas and eventually got the train back home. Much more relaxing than driving – for Craig and for me. It is lovely to come back to our home in Ambra, which is warm and cosy.

    btw - we are in the local pizza bar with great wifi to send you all these blogs!

After this we went to eat the most delicious focaccia sandwich imaginable at All'Antico Vinaio, the sandwich porchetta, artichoke paste, spicy grilled aubergine, sundried tomatoes & zucchini. Definitely the most delicious sandwich ever! Couldn't Bruno make sandwiches like this for lunch back home? We ended the meal with a thick slice of Mozzarella di Buffalla that they gave to ...

    Today was gorgeous, unlike the drizzly, overcast yesterday. We were able to do so much more.

    Freya met us at 9:30 AM and we returned to the Duomo and Battisero and learned more about their history and design. Considering that this cathedral was the third largest in the world when St. Peter's was built, I decided to show a video of the south side so you can appreciate its size and grandeur.

    Below, I included a close-up of one of the east door panels of Ghiberti's ...
