      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 !

Rediscovered in the 19th century and is the most visited hilltop town in the region. Chianti wine from the Tuscan region made from specific grapes.

I had the traditional Ribollita (vegetable soup with day old bread thrown in) – YUM!!! More conversation and wishes for a Happy New Year to Marcia & Liz.

      ... but soon I realized that the 45 minute train ride was taking longer. We didn't pull into Ventimiglia until almost 11am & knew I had missed the train. I hurried to purchase my ticket to Florence & was greeted with a line going out the train station's entrance & only two ticket booths open. The next train was at 11:50am & my ticket was literally purchased at 11:47am, I ran like a 20 year old with seconds to spare. I don't think the ...
