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 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
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.
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.
great location, all highlights in walking distance difficult to find, same breakfast every day, little bit noisy place at night (the square)
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.
Rafaella and Vittoria are the best! Always very nice and helpful, they even gave us special honeymoon gift on the first day we arrived and again when we checked out. The hotel is quite new and the room is beautiful, spacious and clean. Great location, very closed to the train station, and even though our room is on a very busy street, it's quiet inside when the window is closed. There is also a very tiny little lift to bring your luggage up to the room( one person one bag at a time). We did enjoy our stay at this hotel. The breakfast is a little bit too small and it's not at the hotel but in the local cafeteria near by.
Wonderful service from the time we stepped in till the time we left! Friendly and full of initiative. Staff left wine glasses for us when she saw we had a bottle of wine in the room! Good size room 5 minutes away from the train station. Highly recommended!!
The staffs are very friendly. There are snacks and drinks in the room for free everyday. Although the carpark was not nearby, but people from the carpark come to pick up the car and drop it back to us when we need it. When we check-out, a bottle of wine was given to us from the hotel as a gift. As the lift is small, we have to carry the big luggage up the stairs. Also as the hotel does not offer breakfast within the hotel, therefore we have to go to the bar nearby and the Sunday breakfast was not as good as the Mon-Sat one.
Room & staff are nice none
Room was clean and tidy, decorated well, very near to city centre, especially train station. Staff was very helpfull.
Jeg synes at La Terazza Su Boboli var et fantastisk dejligt sted... med alt hvad dette indebærer.. Lækkert indrettet, gode senge, meget ekslusivt... Det eneste der er at sætte en finger på er morgenmaden.. De skulle have købt frisk morgenmad, istedet for crossainter i plastik... og så gerne noget æg og noget ost... så havde det været nr. 1.. Der var endvidere byggeplads i gården, hvilket medførte larm fra kl. 08 til kl. 15/16... Vi blev vækket hver morgen deraf... Skulle have været informeret om dette, for så havde vi valgt et andet hotel... Vi valgte også dette sted pga. skøn altan, som derfor kun kunne bruges om aftenen..
Helt nystartet hotel med usædvanlig flotte værelser. Så nyt at TV ikke fungerede endnu. Meget imødekommende personale. Et problem at noget personale kun taler italiensk... Rigtigt friskbagt brød til morgenmaden.
Bardzo ladny i dobrze polozony B&B. Polecam
Excellent hotel for at cheap price - nice staff - centrally located - we were more than happy with this hotel, it was far better than expected:)
Very nice and helpfully staff. Nice and clean room. Fantastic roof- terasse with a view to Boboligarden at the Scala Hotel. easy access to internet from the hotel. Could have used a boiling kettle at the room, so we could have made us a cop of coffe/the - but it is just a minor issue
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 !!!!
Central location with major attractions in easy walking distance
Ideal for tourism.Near all the main tourist attractions Difficult if you have a rental car
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.
Wonderful staff.Great location.
Within 100 yards of the Uffizi Museum on the Piazza!!!
Location, staff. no lift, no sign on the building to show it is a hotel!
The facilities are very modern and clean, and the staff was very welcoming and helpful. I would definitely stay here again in Florence.
Location, nice owner and staff.
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.
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, 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.
location in the middle of the town
the closeness to the center, design of the room N/A
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.
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
