From the moment, I walked in I felt welcome(d)! The front desk staff, the maids—everyone— was pleasant and accommodating! I received two fantastic restaurant suggestions for dinner—Trattoria Za Za & Osteria Cipolla Rossa—both within short walking distance of the hotel AND delicious! A very good deal for the money! The rooms were basic, yet comfortable—and, who doesn’t just love a bidet! I started in a single for my first two days, then went into a double for my next/last two days (decided to extend stay at last minute). The single was just that... a single bed, single wardrobe, a smaller room, but just fine for a solo traveler. The double was double the size—with a double bed, double wardrobe, bathroom with a small shower stall vs a shower curtain drawn across 1/3 of bathroom as in single room. Both had a small refrigerator/“mini bar” which was great for keeping water cold for daily travels. The place is conveniently located within short 5-15 min. walk(s) to the Galleria dell’ Accademia (Michelangelo’s David), Duomo, Centrale Market, Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio, Boboli Gardens, and the S.Maria Stazzione (train station). I will be back! THANK YOU, Hotel Palazzo Benci!
one minor observation: albeit, I wasn’t staying here to simply watch TV, I would have liked to watch something in English as I drifted off to sleep after the day’s lengthy adventures. EVERY channel on DTV/ATV was in Italian, even the American shows were dubbed, and no subtitles. So, it was either learn Italian via TV -or- watch a repetitive BBC News Hour. My Italian is much better, thank you. As I said, it was a very minor observation. PS. the double bed is literally two twin beds pushed together—so, stay on your side! (LOL!)
Amazing staff and fabulous location.
Good location. Short walks to a lot of sites. Pleasant staff.
Room very warm and stuffy.
Location is great, and it's within distance away from attraction and train station. The only thing is they have not much of breakfast selection serves. overall it's very satisfying .
With a stay at Hotel Palazzo Benci, you'll be centrally located in Florence, within a 5-minute walk of San Lorenzo Church and Florence Baptistery. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, multilingual staff, and an elevator.
