                  very nicely decorated and clean room

                  They did not bother to tell me breakfast was included but I had to call to get it. i didn't realize it til I checked out and another guest told me. It would have taken ten seconds to tell me this at check in.

                  Two aspects were genuinely appreciated: (I) the hotel was ideally located in the city of Florence for engaging with this city and its incredible culture. The hotel was able to organise museum tickets at very short notice and was very helpful in this. (Ii) the hotel as very comfortable and a real pleasure to return to after a full day of seeing the things of Florence. The room was very comfortable and a pleasure to be in. The hotel provided additional refreshments in an executive lounge. This was appreciated. Breakfasts were very well catered; the service staff at breakfast were incredible.

                  There is not much to say here. Though, to be helpful, can I suggest one thing. My wife and I had dinner at the hotel our first night. The meal was excellent as was the service. However, that grand room was far too brightly lit ... it ruined the atmosphere. Can I suggest keeping the room at a low lighting level for dinner.

                  Location is very good; walking distance from the main locations in florence.

                  Breakfast could be better. Internet was not available at all the rooms including my superior room. Even in the lounge it was on and off.

                  The hotel felt like a haven in the middle of the busy, tourist filled Florence - yet when I wanted to go out I was in the heart of the city. The staff was efficent and friendly - they made everything appear effortless. The rooms were designed in an authentic Tuscan design yet with modern luxury bathrooms. Lovely hotel.

                  Windows were small and the rooms felt a little dark (but, have to keep in mind it was a 500 year old palace.) However, it did have a rooftop lounge that was very charming.

                  Its location is super,fantastic decor'.an amazing room.

                  Need to get rid of that big plastic brochure holder inside the door,takes from the amazing lobby. Also roof top terrace view is a slight disappointment, but we would def' stay there again

                  This was a typical city centre hotel all about how much money they can take from you the room on arrival was not ready the airconditioning was broken so they upgraded us to a better room for the first night the second night they put us back in the room that had the faulty aircon i complained so they moved us to a much inferior room

                  From the time we arrived till the time we left our stay was a pleasure. The staff were always on hand to help and the hotel itself was beautiful and in the perfect location. We have been to Florence 5 times and this is definately the best hotel we have stayed in. We will definately be going back. We also booked to stay another night as we didn't want to leave!!

                  We loved everything about our stay at the Hotel Bernini Palace. From the moment we arrived until the time we left, the staff was extremely helpful, courteous, and kind. The Bernini is in an ideal location for a visit to Florence and the accommodations truly made us feel like royalty! We will certainly return.

                  The location, service and overall ambiance of the hotel.

                  The room I had was in the back and saw the wall of the other building.

                  Perfect location! Hotel is 100 yards from the plazza della signoria and the uffizi, and only a few minutes walk from all other main attractions. Buffet breakfast is very good and you can even help yourself to a nice glass of prosecco. Staff are very friendly and informative. Good size bedrooms and very clean.

                  The jacuzzi is situated on a lovely balcony terrace and would have been lovely to relax in after a long day strolling around beautiful florence but unfortunatley is out of order

                  The hotel location is excellent and close to all main attractions in Florence. Excellent ambiance and very nicely appointed rooms. The hotel staff were very helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel.
