Fantastic location. You step out of the front door and straight into the Cappelle Medicee. All major attractions, shops and eating places are within a short and easy walk. The amazing Central Market is around the corner together with hundreds market stalls around it. Staff are very helpful and polite. Buffet breakfast is more than satisfactory. The hotel looks a...

We recently stayed at Palazzo Benci for 4 nights in April in beautiful Florence. We originally had booked it for 3 nights but due to change in travel plans we needed to check in one day early. I made my reservations via booking.com but the hotel was very kind and accommodating to take care of the modification for us and... More

The best thing about this hotel is its location, as it's close to everything. Andrea at the front desk was extremely helpful and welcoming. I reserved a room for one night, but ended up staying 2, at the same price as I was quoted online. The (single) rooms are small, but that is to be expected. The breakfast was good... More

I stayed 4 nights in a larger that average single room, overlooking the piazza. Double glazing meant that it was not as noisy as one might expect, and looking out onto a great tourist attraction, the Medici Cappelle, was a real bonus. It's about 10 minutes walk from the station and the Duomo, and easy walking distance of all the... More

We recently stayed at this hotel after moving from another hotel that was not suitable for a wheelchair user in our party. Tim, on reception, was incredibly helpful with any requests or information we needed during the course of our stay, as were all the other reception staff. The "L" shaped room we had was a little cramped but adequate... More

My husband and I made a spur of the moment trip to Florence and arrived with no hotel reservations, but the gods smiled on us and we wandered into the lobby of the Hotel Palazzo Benci and snagged the last available room. The room was not super-fancy (two twin beds, ordinary curtains and wall hangings, etc.) but who goes to... More

We stumbled across this hotel after our first one was atrocious. Even without a booking we were told to return the next day and thankfully a room was available for us. The staff are welcoming and friendly, the rooms are spacious, the TV offers a wide variety of languages, the lounge/bar and outside courtyard are perfect places to relax after... More

Right down to the smallest detail the Hotel Palazzo Benci is just perfect. In winter it's warm and welcoming and in summer it's light and airy. In the public areas the floors are of marble and the lounges furnished with tasteful and comfortable sofas and armchairs. There's a delightful inner courtyard garden for summer drinks.The bedrooms are modern and beautifully... More
