Just Excellent !
Beautiful place and lanscape
This place is magnificent. We stayed in Villa Castrum. The design and quality of interior of our apartment and common areas in the villa is exceptional. The views and the surrounding area are very beautiful. Great value for money and absolutely beautiful experience. In Marco Polo apartment we were delighted to see a dryer machine, but it was not functioning properly.
It’s quite difficult to say what we like best since everything was just perfect: the hospitality of our hosts and the friendly staff that made us feel at home, the wonderful, charming property exceptionally restored with beautiful gardens and pool, combined with the perfect location in the heart of the Chianti region. We can hardly wait to return. Many thanks to our hosts Lucia and Stefano! -
Staff very friendly initially, making you feel very welcome. Floors coldish & no in-room ironing facilities.
We stayed in Primavera Apartment, Bedrooms were spacious and pleasant decor. Nice Location The bath was dated and tiny with a low pressure shower above. Storage for toiletries was inside the shower area and therefore got wet. Not a suitable layout or pleasant experience.
Very nice place, with good breakfast. additional charges during the breakfast
The gorgeous location in rolling hills of Tuscany as well as the beautiful historical and intimate buildings of La Canonica with their comfortable, relaxing outside garden & pool facilities. Serenity reigns in this private, tucked-away spot. All its facilities, esp. the breakfast room, are more beautiful than pictured online. It would be nice to have the breakfast room opened/served before 8am for those needing to get an early start.
The hospitality was wonderful. Staff were excellent, particularly erica in sorting out stuff for us. The place itself is gorgeous and in a lovely part of the world. Thankyou.
The general setup, the living room, the swimming pool and lawn, the dining room The bathtub was not comfortable , the water pressure was too low, the room was too dark
This has an excellent location from check in to check out hotel & staff were fantastic had read some poor reviews on amother site and these are totally unjustified. We would have no hesitation in staying here again & again.
The location is great, staff were helpful and the breakfast room was lovely.
spacious room, friendly staff. quite different from the pictures on the web page, a little misleading. There is no lift, no staff available from 6 pm.
Big special rooms with quiet and very good location.
I have stayed twice. To me this hotel conveys a real feeling and appreciation of the beauty and taste and Florence. Also, the location is excellent. The hotel is small and has limited desk duty. This can be a problem if you are arriving or leaving late. They leave the desk at 19:00.
Beautiful rooms, very well kept, you really feel like staying in an Italian city palace, hideaway from the bussle of Florence, helpful staff, great tips on where to go and dine Just a tip: from the bookings website, we didnt realize it would be this gorgeous...
This was at one time a small palace. Each room had a different planet theme. The rooms were very clean,bathrooms were large and each room had a different scent that was sprayed in the room. The breakfast is served in the original kitchen. The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially the owner. This hotel is within a 10-20 minute walking distance to most shopping and sites.
Historic setting in central location Unfriendly breakfast service
Central location and such a spacious room - we loved it! Staff, too were wonderful - friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay there again.
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.
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.
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 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.
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
the location is perfect it's a b & b
great location, all highlights in walking distance difficult to find, same breakfast every day, little bit noisy place at night (the square)
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.
Room was lovely, included a terrace, and continental breakfast was very good, very personal service from Mario.
New hotel, decoratively and stylishly furnished. Comfortable room. Good price. Convenient location to reach the centre even on foot.
The place was elegantly decorated and afforded us the space and comfort to relax . The dining room was an interesting mix of dining room / lounge area and the continental breakfast was as refreshing as our Italian hosts
The hotel staff were all very accomadating. They prepared breakfast 45 minutes early for us so we could leave in time to catch our flight. They also allowed us to check in, park our car and bring our bags in before noon on the day we arrived. The B&B is very welcoming, the breakfast was nicely arranged with good variety. We were able to walk into the heart of the city in no more than 15 minutes with our three children with us.
The rooms were in excellent condition and good size. La Terrazza su Boboli is not a hotel - it is a B&B....this wasn't clear to us (although in the description we note that it is described as a b&b - but we'd searched for a hotel...)- if we'd known it was a b&b we would not have stayed. While the bedrooms are hotel standard there is not enough room for all guests to breakfast when they please and you always have that feeling that you are entering someone's house.
Great location, friendly staff, clean rooms, great amenities. I highly recommend it.
Rooms were comfortable and very spacious. Breakfast was great with large selection. Staff were friendly and helpful. No signage on the outside of the building so hard to locate initially. No safe in the room.
Very friendly staff, the rooms are completely renovated and have very good sound insulation, close to center.
Large and comfortable room (with large LCD screen).Located very close to the center of Florence (15 min. walking to Ponte Vecchio).There is a nearby parking garage (15 Euro for 24 hours).Friendly owner. The owner does not speak English.No phone in the room (need to use the reception's phone).
Gorgeous room, with plenty of space for all the family (2 adults, 3 kids). The ceiling was stunning, just what you want when in Florence. The bathroom was spacious and luxurious. The staff was very friendly, always willing to help. She reserved a table at a restaurant around the corner, which must have been quite difficult as it was Friday. Best meal we had during the holiday by the way. The breakfast was good, plenty of choices of breads, meats, cereals, cakes, fruit, coffees, teas, juices. From our room we saw the Boboli Gardens and it was a pleasant walk to the Ponte Vecchio. All in all recommendable! The only downside of this hotel is the parking garage. We managed to do damage to our rental car whilst trying to get out. The exit is very narrow and steep, not recommended for drivers in large cars that are not used to these kind of conditions. As far as I could see there was plenty of other parking in the area.
Room was clean and tidy, decorated well, very near to city centre, especially train station. Staff was very helpfull.
Room & staff are nice none
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.
