The people at Hotel San Gallo Palace were very welcoming and helpful, giving us good tips on where to go to visit and to eat. The hotel is very well located; it is ideal to be used as a base to visit Firenze on food. The room we stayed was of a good size and was very comfortable. We loved...

A very welcoming and friendly hotel, 15 minute walks from the town or easy bus root on the doorstep. Buffet breakfast was good with a huge selection so should appeal to all tastes. The room was well equipped with hairdryer towels and toiletries. The bed was a bit hard for my liking. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

I liked the proximity of the hotel in regards to the station, food, shopping and sights. We were 15-30 walking distance from the train station, Academia Gallery (David is there), a church and plenty of restaurants. There was a small restaraunt close to the hotel that did not have what my wife wanted, which was a bruschetta; however, they made...

I found the hotel staff to be friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was clean and spacious and decorated to a good standard. My room was very comfortable with good facilities. The breakfast selection was fantastic. Unfortunately I was only here for one night but if I return to Florence I will try to stay here.

We loved our two night stay here. Highlights were: the hidden garden underneath our room; the bar and the bar tender - best spritz of our stay and the Negroni, ah. It took much self control to stop at one. The breakfast was perfect. Great scrambled egg and they had Tabasco sauce! What more can I say but if you...

Unfortunately, we only stayed at the hotel for 1 night. We had another hotel out of Rome we had based our trip out of. I wish we would've based it here! The hotel is located in a busier part of Florence (which was a bit noisy), and it is a good walk to get to the main "touristy" things -...

I find that this hotel has so many helpful staffs and the place itself is really nice, located in the middle of the city and within reach of every transportation mode in the city. However, the room is so small so it is a bit difficult to organize my things if I am staying for a longer period of time....

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
