We loved the San Gallo Palace ... close to everything but quiet location ... steps to hop on/off bus ... breezy floral garden and bar - great happy hour to soothe tired feet - this bartender delivers a bravo performance with each cocktail ... crisp linens and squeaky clean rooms satisfy and relax after a busy day ... staff are...

Stayed for a long weekend with my partner. Location was fine, a bit of a noisy roundabout but a fifteen minute walk to the centre so all fine. The only thing we didn't like much was the rather rude reception staff, one chap in particular who seemed to resent us every time we came up to speak to him. Asking...

I have stayed at San Gallo Palace two times. The first time was 5 years ago and went very well. This time it was the opposite. No wifi for several hours upon showing up and then very slow. The staff set up an accommodation in their offices after several hours and this was very nice, though we did not take...

I upgraded my room and had a wonderful outdoor garden sitting area to sip wine and plan on my next area of Florence to get lost in. The location of the Hotel is a 10 to 15 minute walk to the town center. I enjoyed being in the nice neighborhood area which is very convenient to all public transportation. Giulia,...

Stayed here on a group tour and the amenities were fantastic. Clean and moderns rooms. Nice bar downstairs in the lobby with comfortable seating. Nice area to relax. Nice dining rooms available. Hotel staff was very friendly. Vaporetto water transportation stop is also right outside the hotel making it easily accessible.

Really well-placed hotel just a twenty minute stroll from the centre. Lovely rooms, people are splendid and so helpful. Breakfast is your usual continental fare with the option of well made coffee on request. Cocktails in the bar for happy hour are a must from friendly barman, Dennis.

All services were very good. Our only concern was that the government does not allow AC to be turned on until after April 15th, this is not good for Canadians.Weather in early April was quite hot. Room sizes, food service, etc were fine.Location a little distant but cab service is reasonable. Ciao!

Quite a way out from the centre (25 min walk from train station and about 20 min walk from centre) which is the only real negative about this hotel but you can hire bikes if you feel so inclined. Staff were friendly and welcoming. We arrived before check-in time and they let us leave our bags, when we returned later...

Really good location and a beautiful hotel which is only about about 10 minutes walk to the Duomo. Really helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was really good and the bar sold really good cocktails and even had a happy hour! Would recommend it.

A beautiful, well decorated, clean hotel with friendly, helpful staff. The room was excellent and breakfast was wonderful and varied. Set in a beautiful little piazza and only 20 min walk from the station and the Duomo would definitely recommend!!

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
