"Excellent Modern Hotel" San Gallo Palace Hotel Tip by Sammyfloyd

San Gallo Palace Hotel, Florence: 1,766 reviews and 3 photos

San Gallo Palace is an excellent and modern hotel:

Rooms: Size is slightly above average for European hotel standards. Some of the double rooms have balconies that overlook the courtyard, those rooms also have large showers that have shower heads built into the wall for a nice warm body shower. The decor is modern and comfortable.

Location: Slightly off center is Piazza Liberta. It is about a 10 minute walk to Accademia, and 15 minutes to the Cathedral. You can also walk across the square and take the bus if you don't want to talk. Parking is available right around the corner at an underground parking lot for a reduced rate.

Breakfast: Included in room rate and it has some hot items as well.

Service: Excellent service overall, with good recommendations for restaurants and help with museum tickets. We also stored some items for a couple of days while we were away and had no problems.

Price: I think it has good value for what the hotel offers. Again, the only drawback is you are not right at the center, but even if you take a taxi everyday, it still costs less.
