    Historical Traveler Reviews San Gallo Palace Hotel Florence

    Good place to stay!!

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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 !

    from

    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 !

    ... saw all of the different Medici coat of arms decorations as well as the altar at the head of the room that was completed in 1939 so Hitler and Mussolini could see it. The entire room of the sacristy was designed by Michelangelo and houses the tombs of four prominent family members. Again, I do not really enjoy taking photos of tombs so instead, I stood still for awhile within the space and took all of it in. ...

    ... walking around all day and desperately needing caffeine (well, me anyway) we decided to head to Burger King in the hope of quick and easy food. Mission accomplished with the added bonus of having beer included with our meal - through a straw of course!

    Florence is definitely a beautiful city and full of things to stumble upon, restaurants and cafes to stumble into and streets to wander down.

    ... where two famous Michelangelo sculptures, "Night and Day" and "Dusk and Dawn" were displayed. After that we went to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore which is the church with Brunelleschi's famous dome (Il Duomo). We all got to climb to the top of the dome where we had an amazing view of the entire city! After that we were free to do what we wanted and so a group of us decided to climb the tower of Santa Maria del Fiore to get another amazing ...

Aunty Maureen you would love it here, God stuff everywhere! Michael Angelo designed the Dome at St Peters and it is truley awe inspiring. Out in St Peters Square we got to see the Swiss Gaurd and a couple entering the Basilica to get married, must cost a fortune. St Peters Square can hold up ...
