We enjoyed the hotel immensely during our 8-night stay in room 314 facing the interior away from the street. High room ceilings, separate rooms for the bath/toilet and the vanity/sink/closet, ultra-fast and free wi-fi, outstanding breakfast (wide selection of food including organic and great service) in a beautifully appointed spacious ballroom, and very helpful front desk staff. Both the C1...

One could not find a better hotel for location, professional yet friendly staff and comfort. You are steps away from everything in Florence. Enzo will take care of your tour needs.

The Bernini was a beautifully appointed hotel, and situated within short walking distance to basically everything! 10 -15 minutes walks to the Duomo, Medici Palace, the market, the Oltrarno neighborhood, the Academia, and 3 minutes to the Ufffizi. Breakfast was excellent with many choices of fresh foods and cooked.

I chose this hotel because it is only a block from piazza della signoria. The location was great, but the hotel was fabulous. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The desk staff were all wonderful. They gave great recommendations for restaurants and local things to do. The beds slept well and the linen sheets were a nice touch.

Stayed 8 nights on a tour, found the accommodations excellent, room was spacious for a European hotel. To get to some of the rooms you have to go up and down a number of steps, so people with limited mobility need to ask for rooms where this does not occur.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.

The rooms are 74, Classic, Superior, Deluxe, Junior Suite and Suite, all are fitted out with the best, most up-to-date mod-cons and still preserve the charm of the past.
