We had a pleasure to stay in this 3* hotel gem in the heart of amazing Florence. It was our 4th time in the city but this was truly 20/10 for the accomodation. Aaaaamazing location,… the best there is… exceptional staff, clean and very comfy beds. Surprisingly rich breakfast for a 3 star hotel. Very nice patio for an evening chat or wine sip… and they already prepared the Christmas decoration for the advent time, wooohoo There are many restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood and the main attractions are just few steps away The only downside is the oldfashioned bathroom… needs a renovation… if hotels management reads this.. :-) We felt very nice and we’ll be back for sure.

Stayed here with a group of friends for 3 nights as attending a wedding in Tuscany. Hotel location is fantastic Close to bars and restaurants and within easy walking distance to the main attractions. The staff were all extremely helpful particularly Ursula on the reception. The rooms were spacious, clean and very quiet. Very good breakfast included in the price. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would definitely stay here again

Everything was great at this hotel. Especially the staff they were very kind and helpful throughout my entire stay five stars no doubt about it. Another review said very close to restaurants and major sites of the city. This is true my number one place to go and see was the Medici chapel. And it turned out it was literally right across the street from the hotel. And it was a great price for my stay!!

The hotel is located in a great location. A few blocks from the Tran Station and in the other direction just a few blocks to the Duomo. The hotel is located across from a small piazza and a smaller side street with lots of restaurants. The hotel was very clean. My room had a lot of space, just wish there was another table or vanity stand. The bathroom was large and the shower was big (a tub with a shower head). Could’ve been a little more updated. The walls are thin and I could hear movement from above me all night long. The staff is extremely nice and attentive. They always greeted you and smiled and made sure you were alright! The breakfast was good (hard boiled eggs, assortment of bread, cheese, meats, yogurt, fruit, cereal, pastries and salad. Overall, I was extremely happy with my stay!

Dear Klick1919kk, Thank You for staying with us and for reviewing the hotel! Our location is the perfect spot between the train station and the city center and thanks to the double glassed windows all the street noise can be left outside to enjoy a good night of rest. The staff is always happy to welcome our guests and make them experience the best that Florence can offer, always after a satisfying breakfast in the beautiful Breakfast Room! We already scheduled some renovation and we hope to welcome You again soon to be judge of our improvements. Kind Regards, Alessandra, HPB

Okayyy... stop looking. Seriously. Book this hotel ASAP! Room 108 if you can! Breakfast: 10/10. Cucumber, salad, tomato, whole wheat toast, yogurt, cereal, croissant, cheese, meat, choose your coffee and have 5 if you want. Tea? Yep, tons of options. Oh, and did I mention the GORGEOUS breakfast room? Hot damn. Room: 9/10 Comfortable bed and pillows, clean and bright! The bathroom was perfectly sized for my hubby and I (we're both tall and the bed fit us well!). Location: 500/10 So close to the train station but you wouldn't know it! Walked a couple blocks and were surprised by the Duomo being just around the corner. Very close to the leather market too. The square and restaurants by the hotel are lovely and lively until late BUT you won't hear them. It's not rowdy, just a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere. THE COURTYARD/GARDEN IS LITERALLY AMAZING. 100000/10 My hubby and I bought a bottle of wine and enjoyed it in the courtyard one evening- highlyyyy recommend! Etc.: The front desk people are lovely and helpful, a few are completely fluent in English and the others do vey well communicating.

Dear Y3120XTgraceb, Thank You so much for this amazing and detailed review! Your opinion and kind words are really appreciated. We are really happy You enjoyed Your stay with us in our beautiful location and our comfortable rooms. We put much effort in the breakfast buffet to meet all our guests taste, wheter it is savoury or sweet, and to let them begin their sightseeing day with the right energy. During the warm season is nice to have a quiet place to escape the city noise such as our inner courtyard and to relax enjoying a glass of Chianti red wine . We hope to welcome You in the future at Hotel palazzo Benci! Kind Regards, Alessandra, HPB

Perfect location - within walking distance of just about all of the sites. The room was small but clean and AC worked great. The breakfast was pretty good - hard boiled eggs, rolls/breads, cheese, hams and salamis, veggies, fruits, choice of different coffees. If you’re looking for good functional accommodations at a great location at a price that won’t break the bank, Palazzo Benci is hard to beat!

Dear Steven, greetings from Firenze and thank you for an aweeeeeeeeesoooooomeeeee review :-) We try to improve our breakfast. We know we cannot satisfy everybody but it is a 3* hotel and according to your review we do good :-) happy to read your comment. We try to balance the value for money and it based on your opinion, it is balanced now. For the location in the city center we agree, it doesn't break the bank. We will renovate the bathrooms in upcoming low season.... we will be happy to welcome you back and evaluate our improvements. Thank you for your stay Steven. Kind regards, Hotel Palazzo Benci

Excellent hotel which is within 2 minutes walk of many bars, cafes and restaurants. Many tourists sites within 5 minutes walk including Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and 10 mins walk to main railway station Firenze Santa Maria Novella. Welcoming and friendly staff, excellent room with comfy bed. Breakfast is continental with plenty of choice. Would highly recommend
