A delightful little gem of a hotel in the heart of Florence. Beautifully, diversely, artistically and tastefully decorated. Large en suite room with an enormous, comfortable bed with the best hotel pillows ever. Buffet breakfast served in intimate spaces close to each room. Very reasonably priced for such a central location. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nothing seemed too much...

What a charming and unique hotel! The parking for this hotel was extremely difficult to find and get to (we ended up just activating our international data to get the GPS), but after that, everything went lovely. We were traveling with a 3-month-old, so the hotel staff ended up giving us a free upgrade to a very large, beautiful room....

Absolutely wonderful B&B in the heart of the city. Perfectly appointed, super clean and the ambiance is perfect. Staff was over the top helpful especially with our very late checkin due to late planes. We would stay here again!!

This hotel was fantastic, and in the heart of it all. You can walk to any of the highlights in Florence, Yes, it is noisy at night, but some earplugs will do the trick. With its location, you can pop back into your hotel easily and drop off your souvenirs, change your camera battery, etc. and get right back into...

Let me just say that the building is beautiful, the room was very charming and the staff is so welcoming! You can't beat the location, you're in the heart of the city. I just wish I would have saw a few of the reviews noting how loud the square can get outside at night. For 3 nights in a row...

I stayed for a week in November. The staff is wonderfully helpful and the hotel itself is lovely--with many of the decorations for sale as the "Gallery" part of the name. It is in the center of everything facing the Mercato Nuovo that has the fountain of the Porcellino (little boar) as in the first part of the name. The...

This hotel is right in the heart of the city. It is literally a 5 minute walk to the center market, the bridge, Il Duomo. Seriously, you can't beat it. The room I had was lovely and spotless. It had a huge shuttered double door right over the small market where Il Porcellino is. This is both good and bad....

First, the good part: This is a gorgeous place, very beautiful design and decor. Th staff is nice and welcoming.And it's walking distance to all the main attractions in Florence. But.... it is located right beside the Piazza del Mercato, so vendors and their carts are making noise around 6:30 AM. In the weekend, the Piazza is taken over by...

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.
