Beautiful hotel in a handy location for all the main sites . Wonderful relaxing courtyard ideal to sit and have breakfast in the sunshine before heading out for the day and even better to put your feet up with a chilled drink when you get back ! Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Dear Guest,

we cannot thank you enough for your review! Your words are the best reward for our passion and our daily work here, always striving to offering an upscale hospitality experience. As you mentioned, our boutique hotel offers a lot more than an excellent location: a mervellous garden with a heated swimming pool, a restaurant where you can have lunch or dinner, a lounge bar for delicious appetizers, and a modern and well equipped Spa for a reinvigorating relaxation session. In other words, our Palazzo Castri represents the ideal place to have a chic&relaxing stay in Florence, by enjoying both our historical centre and a peaceful Hotel despite the central location.

We are looking forward to welcoming you again.

Warm regards
Elisabetta

I picked this hotel due to it's proximity to the train station and the very good reviews here. This hotel ticked all the boxes - The location was excellent and an easy walk to the main attractions. I chose a garden view room as this was away from the traffic - the room itself was faultless - the bed and pillows were excellent and at last a shower that was intuitive to operate.
The best part of the hotel was the garden space - after a day's walking it was nice to get back and sit in this quiet sunny retreat to unwind.

Room tip: Choose a garden view room for quietness

Coming through the front door, I was immediately amazed as to the change in the environment. The hotel has recently had a modernization throughout. The lobby leads onto the restaurant and then onto a lovely garden with outdoor seating. There is a modern spa as well on the ground level with an indoor-outdoor pool for soaking. The rooms are also modernized, and the breakfast is excellent. What more can you want for a well-located hotel in the middle of a great city?

We spent four nights at this hotel on our recent trip to Italy. It was our favorite out of all the hotels while in Italy! The location from the train station is easy 10 minute walk and the hotel is right across the street from a park, which was the view from our room.
The hotel is completely renovated, rooms are new and contemporary and very quiet.
The breakfast was also the best quality we experienced on our trip. White linen service with very high quality meats, cheeses, pastries, and eggs, bacon, etc. Delicious! Also we had fresh cappuccino every morning or you can have American coffee, whatever you choose.
We walked everywhere from our hotel, easy walk to the Duomo, the museums, everywhere.
But the highlight is the adorable courtyard outside the restaurant. With chairs and umbrellas, we felt like we were in the tropics. They have afternoon drinks as well, but we were never there for that, but I’m sure it was top notch. You can not go wrong with this hotel, I promise! It was excellent!

Dear Guest,

Your kind comments made us proud of our daily work aiming to offer our guests a fantastic experience at Palazzo Castri 1874.
Thank you in particular for underlining the comfort and elegance of our rooms, and the excellent quality of our rich buffet where you will be able to enjoy fresh cappuccino and much more every morning, and tea time as well. This is an additional and complementary service we are proud to offer to our guests during the afternoon, in our Florentia Café.
Besides all this, the location of our hotel could not be better, and our garden "La Limonaia" is the perfect place where you can enjoy a drink in a relaxing atmosphere.

We are waiting for you soon!

Best regards

Our first time in Florence, we wanted to be somewhat close to the train station with our rolling luggage and Palazzo Castri was the perfect location. As soon as we arrived, the staff were all exceptional and when we got to our room, the room was even better than what we had expected--very clean, very modern, high ceilings and a great street view from the first floor. The breakfast was great, everything we wanted, and if we ever go back to Florence again this will be the place we will stay!!
