Originally a 15th century “Palazzo”, the Hotel Bernini is built according to the Classic Florentine architectural style, with string-course cornices along the walls and wooden shutters giving it a charming antique flavor. The Bernini Palace is located in Florence’s historic center, right behind Piazza della Signoria - just a stone’s throw from the Uffizi and Florence’s main historical attractions. The rooms are 74, Classic, Superior, Deluxe, Junior Suite and Suite, all are fitted out with the best, most up-to-date mod-cons and still preserve the charm of the past. The Tuscan Floor is reminiscent of old world Tuscan colours and themes, very warm and inviting. The new restaurant La Chiostrina is located in a historical courtyard of the hotel, it is the ideal place for delicious gastronimic specialities in Florence, its versatility makes it an excellent restaurant offering an innovative menu. A full breakfast is served in the magnificent Sala Parlamento (complete with a splendid frescoed ceiling) formerly a meeting place for members of Parliament and Senators of the Kingdom of Italy

The staff at Bernini Palace hotel, which is a delightful small boutique hotel right in the heart of Florence and very close to Santa Croce, Bargello Museum, Opera di Santa Maria del Foote di Firenze, were very warm and hospitable and the rooms were kept spotless. I was in Italy for about two months and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I packed my bags and moved to the hotel to enjoy an extra week in Italy but found out that I was Covid positive. Had to go into isolation. The staff were very kind and let me return to my room to quarantine. They left my food outside my door and did their best to provide me with good food even bringing me a glass of Champagne for New Year's Eve and it was the best I had ever tasted. Thank you so much for taking such good care of me. I am glad to be home now but I left part of my heart in Florence. Highly recommend this hotel.

Hi, I made a booking for your hotel from today November 19-21. We arrived in Rome and shortly we’re informed of my wife’s mother’s emergency in hospital - we had to immediately cancel our dream holiday in Florence and Venice . When I cam to your cancel with Berni hotel they informed me of no Cancellation policy which is fine. So I asked for a hotel credit to use in future and they refused. Doris from the booking team was very insensitive in their communication with me and this was not human and compassionate. I expected a better treatment and at least a compromise with a credit to use in future in your hotel. How can such a hotel be so insensitive?

Dear Amro, our cancellation policies have been further shortened in this period due to Covid restrictions. Our reservations staff has communicated correctly the policy in case of cancellation only the evening before arrival. We would like to point out that the assistant communicated kindly and politely. Also, you forgot to write that the Hotel could not make any penalty charge because authorization was denied by the card you provided as guarantee; it would have been correct to write this too. I consider your global rating unacceptable as you have never stayed in this hotel and have not had elements to express an objective judgment. I hope instead to be able to host you at Bernini in the future to make you change your idea. Best wishes,

This is the place to stay! Location, beautiful property and staff that goes above and beyond. We were so impressed that I wrote the following letter to the manager upon our return home. These people were just so fantastic. And again, you can't find a better location. The property itself is beautiful. You look forward to breakfast every morning! "My wife Ellen and myself wanted to thank you again for the fantastic service and attention that your staff gave us during our 8 day stay. You treated us like family! Everyone was so nice and helpful. The room and food were all fantastic as well. Staying at your hotel and experiencing your staff was the best decision we ever made regarding our trip. We can’t wait to come back again and we felt sad not being about to thank you all in person when we left early Sunday morning". Thank you will all our hearts!
