To stay in 16th century noble residence with on Florence (the hotel is located on top floor on the building) isn't everyday experience as well as to sleep in a room with nice frescoes. A plus is that is located in Santo Spirito square which pedestrian and usually quiet. The veranda is amazing!

Stayed there in the summer of 1978 with a student group from UCLA (I was an architecture student taking Italian classes) while attending the Universita per Stranieri in Florence. Had a great time, wasn't concerned about extra comfort at that time. Had lodging and two meals for f$15 a day, a local bus pass, and access to the university cafeteria... More

When I stay in Florence, I will spend some days in Pensione Bandini. Some installation may be not in best condition, but the historical building, the top view over Florence, the kitchen and to be close to the center is unique.

I stayed here for 6 weeks with a study abroad program through my school. We all realy enjoyed getting to know the staff. Breakfast was always very simple, but satisfactory. Dinner was good most of the time, with the pasta dish being excellent every time. I reccommend staying in one of the rooms with the private bathroom. The people in... More

Went there 1989 when I was 18. Got very friendly with a boy named Laurence. Went there again 5 years later and had an argument with Laurence. Went there on honeymoon with Laurence in 1999. We'll take the kids there some time soon.

We stayed at Bandini for 2 days. Although on a limited traffic square the noise was unbelieveable. There was a market every day and the merchants started setting up at 7am. The square was a hangout at night - complete with people yelling and police activity. On our second day we did not receive fresh towels (which were not much... More

We stayed at the Pensione for 3 days before our departure. The rooms were nice and big with a very rustic feel. The shared bathroom was ok but could have used a couple of minor repairs. Excellent balcony, a nice place for people to sit and enjoy the late afternoon sun. Just a little overpriced for what you get. Also,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Pensione Sorelle Bandini and found it charming with its huge, ramshackle balconies and cozy communal areas. It was a nice refuge from the hustle and bustle of Florence while still feeling tied to it, as you are constantly looking at gorgeous views of the green hills of Fiesole, the Arno, and from our...

The Pensione Sorelle Bandini was indeed charming, and the loggia was a wonderful place to relax with a bottle of wine after a long day walking around Florence (and dodging motor scooters!). It is conveniently located a few blocks from the Pitti, and then on across the Ponte Vecce from the Uffizi. (We also found a great internet cafe on... More

Pensione Sorelle Bandini was the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed at. The communal areas are amazing. Large windowed rooms with fantastic views all over the city. The furniture is faded and original but that adds to the charm. The pensione has a loggia running along two sides of the building which is wide and great for having a... More
