We stayed at this "luxury" hotel for 1 night because our reserved hotel room at the other side of the street was with a problem. At palazzo Benci the bedroom was clean and confortable but small, good and clean toilet, fantastic breakfast in a luxurious surrounding. But the staff were arrogant and had a "I'm superior than you" air. It...

Rooms are terrible, provide one towel per person, very sparce bathroom amenities( one tiny sliver of soap for two people, charge for an xtra towel or pillow. Our stay was for two nights, and even that was to long. Come on...one soap the size of a silver dollar for two people for two nights!

About the only possible advantages to recommend this hotel are the location and the nice entrance lobby. The rooms seem worn out, with mold spots in the corners of the shower, toilets that can't manage to flush everything until the fourth or fifth attempt, a staff that borders between indifference and cynicism, and even breakfast plates stuck together and with...

This hotel isn't a 4- or 5-star by any means, but it is clean, close to the train and to all the main sites, and a decent price for what you get. The breakfast is excellent (more than just the typical European breakfast) and the rooms are bigger than most European-style rooms. The bathroom was clean. My only complaint is...

Fantastic location. You step out of the front door and straight into the Cappelle Medicee. All major attractions, shops and eating places are within a short and easy walk. The amazing Central Market is around the corner together with hundreds market stalls around it. Staff are very helpful and polite. Buffet breakfast is more than satisfactory. The hotel looks a...

We recently stayed at Palazzo Benci for 4 nights in April in beautiful Florence. We originally had booked it for 3 nights but due to change in travel plans we needed to check in one day early. I made my reservations via booking.com but the hotel was very kind and accommodating to take care of the modification for us and...

The best thing about this hotel is its location, as it's close to everything. Andrea at the front desk was extremely helpful and welcoming. I reserved a room for one night, but ended up staying 2, at the same price as I was quoted online. The (single) rooms are small, but that is to be expected. The breakfast was good...

I stayed 4 nights in a larger that average single room, overlooking the piazza. Double glazing meant that it was not as noisy as one might expect, and looking out onto a great tourist attraction, the Medici Cappelle, was a real bonus. It's about 10 minutes walk from the station and the Duomo, and easy walking distance of all the...

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, I had spent ages looking for a hotel before we went and wasn't sure what to expect as there were so many to choose from and this one didnt have many reviews. We were pleasantly suprised as this hotel is in a really good location within walking distance to everything. The staff...

We recently stayed at this hotel after moving from another hotel that was not suitable for a wheelchair user in our party. Tim, on reception, was incredibly helpful with any requests or information we needed during the course of our stay, as were all the other reception staff. The "L" shaped room we had was a little cramped but adequate...
