Beautiful rooms, very well kept, you really feel like staying in an Italian city palace, hideaway from the bussle of Florence, helpful staff, great tips on where to go and dine Just a tip: from the bookings website, we didnt realize it would be this gorgeous...
This was at one time a small palace. Each room had a different planet theme. The rooms were very clean,bathrooms were large and each room had a different scent that was sprayed in the room. The breakfast is served in the original kitchen. The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially the owner. This hotel is within a 10-20 minute walking distance to most shopping and sites.
Central location and such a spacious room - we loved it! Staff, too were wonderful - friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay there again.
The location is great, staff were helpful and the breakfast room was lovely.
I have stayed twice. To me this hotel conveys a real feeling and appreciation of the beauty and taste and Florence. Also, the location is excellent. The hotel is small and has limited desk duty. This can be a problem if you are arriving or leaving late. They leave the desk at 19:00.
Historic setting in central location Unfriendly breakfast service
spacious room, friendly staff. quite different from the pictures on the web page, a little misleading. There is no lift, no staff available from 6 pm.
This has an excellent location from check in to check out hotel & staff were fantastic had read some poor reviews on amother site and these are totally unjustified. We would have no hesitation in staying here again & again.
Big special rooms with quiet and very good location.
Central location - friendly and helpful staff. The room was clean and spacious and the host was very friendly and helpful.I am recommending this hotel as we got it at a good price for Florence. The B&B is on the first floor of a building site (as 25/9/2008). It meant we had to carry our luggage up 10-15 steps in a dusty corridor and then take a lift for the remaining. It would not suit anyone with walking/carrying difficulties.
The location was great as far as proximity to points of interest like Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, Galileo Museum. The walks to other places weren't bad at all and gave the opportunity to find places to eat and shop. The river is also very close and beautiful at night and in the morning. Our room (#8) was very quiet. Breakfast was at a cafe very close by with a very nice man working each morning. I had only one issue with hot water the first morning. I emailed Daniela and she had it checked out and confirmed there was indeed hot water to our room. Never had an issue after that. Communication was great. The entrance to the building has a strong odor when the doors aren't left open during the day. Galileo has very little control over this I'm sure. Luckily enough the smell does not lead upstairs or into the rooms. Still a great stay regardless.
The location is wonderful, right in Piazza San Firenze. Only 1 block from Piazza della Signoria. We had a very large room. Beautiful decor, friendly staff. We did not have a safe in our room so we had to carry our money and passports with us. There was Wi-fi but no free computer to use. We did not have any drinking glasses in our room.
The hotel is near the center and short walk (2 min) to the cultural center of Firenze. We got a spacy room with a wonderful bathroom. Very quiet. Not easy to find.
Charming room, very close to major "highlights" of Firenze, very helpful personnel Most Italians speak Italian, and that's such a beautiful language that this is enough to them
It's very central to all major visitation destinations of the city. 10 min walk to everything. Get a city view room. It's worth it! The reception desk was very helpful, calling taxi's for us and making reservations for restraints and attractions. The indoor space and rooms were beautiful! Very romantic and LARGE!!! Finding the hotel and getting in is hard. Minimal signage, you can't walk into a main corridor. You have to figure out to hit a button and explain to a person through an intercom that you are staying there, then they buzz you up. The paper for the button that says Galileo 2000 is old and worn too.
the location is perfect it's a b & b
Good location, large, nicely decorated rooms. It is NOT a hotel, as was mentioned in your site, but B&B (no lobby and hotel facilities
great location, all highlights in walking distance difficult to find, same breakfast every day, little bit noisy place at night (the square)
The room was large. Parking in Florence is very expensive and the hotel can organise a discount for 2 parking garages which saved a lot of money. Heating was very good. The bathroom was definitely not clean enough. I don't even think the shower and sink had been wiped down from the previous guests. The toilet seat was broken and coming off. The window was broken which let extra noise in. The woman at breakfast was quite rude and felt put out when asked for something so simple as coffee. Breakfast was more limited than other hotels, no eggs or fruit. Maybe my expectations were too high. We have stayed at cheaper and nicer hotels in other cities - maybe Florence is just a very expensive city.
Good size room, Clean and tidy, good breakfast, great location close to station and centre, friendly staff.
When i arrived Mina ( the lady working there) gave me map and showed which places must see and what buses i can take if i wanna go to some more far places - which was realy nice of her!=) i appriciated it a lot! Room was always clean and breakfast was really good ( at least for me =))If i had some questions i could easily ask mina and she was always ready to help and answer - which is a great plus!Location is good as its not exact in the center but on a quiet street so at night its fine to sleep but 10 mins from Duomo...=) i felt absolutely comfortable and safety staying in this B&B and i would stay there next time im coming to Florence.
Nice Hotel, 10 minutes walk from centre of Florence.
Wonderful staff.Great location.
Perfect location. Pleasant, helpful staff in an elegant old building. Steep stairs, and the communial breakfast arrangements, but to be fair, it's diffucult to see how it could be otherwise in such an old building.
Central location with major attractions in easy walking distance
Within 100 yards of the Uffizi Museum on the Piazza!!!
the location,...... reservation ,although confirmed in march, was not registered. We stayed in 3 different rooms ! ( one much smaller , the other one oké ) persuation was necessary !!!!
Ideal for tourism.Near all the main tourist attractions Difficult if you have a rental car
Great location, friendly staff, clean rooms, great amenities. I highly recommend it.
The rooms were in excellent condition and good size. La Terrazza su Boboli is not a hotel - it is a B&B....this wasn't clear to us (although in the description we note that it is described as a b&b - but we'd searched for a hotel...)- if we'd known it was a b&b we would not have stayed. While the bedrooms are hotel standard there is not enough room for all guests to breakfast when they please and you always have that feeling that you are entering someone's house.
The hotel staff were all very accomadating. They prepared breakfast 45 minutes early for us so we could leave in time to catch our flight. They also allowed us to check in, park our car and bring our bags in before noon on the day we arrived. The B&B is very welcoming, the breakfast was nicely arranged with good variety. We were able to walk into the heart of the city in no more than 15 minutes with our three children with us.
Gorgeous room, with plenty of space for all the family (2 adults, 3 kids). The ceiling was stunning, just what you want when in Florence. The bathroom was spacious and luxurious. The staff was very friendly, always willing to help. She reserved a table at a restaurant around the corner, which must have been quite difficult as it was Friday. Best meal we had during the holiday by the way. The breakfast was good, plenty of choices of breads, meats, cereals, cakes, fruit, coffees, teas, juices. From our room we saw the Boboli Gardens and it was a pleasant walk to the Ponte Vecchio. All in all recommendable! The only downside of this hotel is the parking garage. We managed to do damage to our rental car whilst trying to get out. The exit is very narrow and steep, not recommended for drivers in large cars that are not used to these kind of conditions. As far as I could see there was plenty of other parking in the area.
Rooms were comfortable and very spacious. Breakfast was great with large selection. Staff were friendly and helpful. No signage on the outside of the building so hard to locate initially. No safe in the room.
The place was elegantly decorated and afforded us the space and comfort to relax . The dining room was an interesting mix of dining room / lounge area and the continental breakfast was as refreshing as our Italian hosts
Large and comfortable room (with large LCD screen).Located very close to the center of Florence (15 min. walking to Ponte Vecchio).There is a nearby parking garage (15 Euro for 24 hours).Friendly owner. The owner does not speak English.No phone in the room (need to use the reception's phone).
Very friendly staff, the rooms are completely renovated and have very good sound insulation, close to center.
Room was lovely, included a terrace, and continental breakfast was very good, very personal service from Mario.
New hotel, decoratively and stylishly furnished. Comfortable room. Good price. Convenient location to reach the centre even on foot.
Location, staff. no lift, no sign on the building to show it is a hotel!
I liked everything about the hotel! It's just super! I spent a wonderful half week. Luciano forever! Nothing
The location of this B&B was excellent for access to the centre of Florence. In a quaint street was just great. Matress was on the hard side but other than this it was a great place.
Location, nice owner and staff.
The facilities are very modern and clean, and the staff was very welcoming and helpful. I would definitely stay here again in Florence.
Beligenhet De bør fikse varmen på rommene (det var ganske kaldt der) og også fikse varmtvanns tilførsel. Noen ganger var det ikke varmt vann på morgenen.
Beliggenhet Frokosten i hotellet ved siden av ikke så bra Dessuten er frokostene i Italia altfor dårlige for nordmenn
Right in the middle of Florence, friendly staff, clean, good value for money. Simple breakfast and no regular reception service, but then it is a B&B. It was nice to drop by the room in between all site seeing and sit on the balcony with a cup of coffee (from the free machine in the breakfast room) on the balcony over the head of all tourists rushing from accademia to uffici. We had ordered a four man room but got to double rooms for the same price. We would stay there again because of centrality.
Free coffee, tea and water with internet point opens 24/7. High Ceiling, private balcony for certain rooms - great to take a cup of coffee at the private balcony, watching people walking by the Repubblica Plaza downstair between Uffize and the Academy. Lift to reach the B&B, no concern for carrying suitcases. Marco, the owner, and Ena are both very nice. Shower place is small. I spend only 15 minutes for a shower and it doesn't bother me. On my arrival to the Repubblica Plaza, it took me a bit time to locate the building's entrance, which is right next to the restaurants.
location in the middle of the town
Staff/owner is nice; very helpful. There is one person managing the hotel. He tries to do everything to make your stay wonderful. Location is excellent. City center. Also, tea and coffee is available any time. Very comfortable for sightseeing trips. But hotel facilities are really poor. Several things:1. Breakfast is not acceptable. Its written that hotel offers "buffet breakfast". Reality: there will be 10 yoghurts bought by owner in "Spar" shop the night before, croissants in plastic bags, tea and coffee.nobody cleans tables until the breakfast is ended..If you come to breakfast later than other guests you will not get even yoghurt, as 10 yoghurt will be gone, and you will not have clean spoon or cup.... We . 2. LOTs of noise from the street. Was difficult to sleep at night because of machines cleaning trash. 3.No internet in the rooms, only in the hall. 4.No reception. If owner is there - he will help. If he is not there - there is noone to ask about anything. But overall, central location compensates for 1,2,3, 4 above
the closeness to the center, design of the room N/A
Location, Location, Location I was asked to pay cash when I had already provided my credit card details at the time of booking. On the second day when I insisted that I wanted to use my credit card the owner/manager was surly for the rest of our stay.
