                    We had a nice large room. Friendly, helpful staff.

                    Breakfast was adequate but nothing special and could be a little longer. Had some air conditioning problems with our but they did try to rectify it.

                    It was very clean and spacious. Everything was of a high standard and attention to detail made it comfortable and relaxing. The bathroom was large with a bath and shower. The staff very pleasant and helpful. A most enjoyable stay

                    The fridge didn't work which was disappointing as a cold drink would have added to the comfort. Otherwise-all good

                    We stayed at this hotel for a week in Sept 2012. The location is perfect - a 10 minute walk from the main attractions but lots to see on that walk! The staff are helpful and friendly. The room is basic but nice and clean. Huge breakfast room with a big selection of all foods. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting an affordable option. It's a gorgeous private setting surrounded by its own courtyard.

                    The room size was great and it was very clean. the stay was very good

                    The internet a bit slow and our window opened above the smoking area which made the room smell of smoke.

                    Spacious room

                    descent hotel but not a 4 stars, the air conditioning was old and noisy. The hotel could make some updates

                  • Family with children

                    The room was spacious and comprised of two small bedrooms and a living room. Although the outside temperature exceeded 100 degrees Farenheit, the air conditioner worked well. The breakfast was rather extensive and quality of food excellent. The location was reasonably good and close to major attractions in Florence.

                    The structure appeared to be old, elevators were small to the extent that we had to go up and down a few times to take our luggage to our room. Most rooms did not have internet connection and residents gathered in the hotel lobby to gain access to the internet.

                    Garden, kindness of the staff and... The price of coffee :-))

                    The room was clean but with a lot of uncompleted stuffs. Air conditioning was not connected to the central system and they give us a mobile one, with the pipe going outside to the terrace. So terrace was full of water and dirty.

                    The room was not clean and the breakfast was poor for a 4 stars hotel.

                    We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Palazzo Ricasoli. The room and bathroom were huge, very clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was great with quite a selection of hot or cold options incl fresh juices and delicious bacon & eggs. As well as usual cereals, toast & fruit was a nice variety of sweet items like cakes and apfelstrudel. We had wifi signal in the room (free wifi). The staff were friendly and helpful.

                    The hotel had very little signage out the front to identify it. We had no problems since knew where it would be, but otherwise we would have stumbled in hoping we had the correct location.

                    Fabulous room, very large & a perfect location for visiting the city . Only 10-15min walking to the city center.

                    Street noise, parking facilities. For a small car it's ok but for a big one is a nightmare! The breakfast is reasonable only.

                    The hotel is fair/good but for a 4 stars i would have expected a little more.

                    The breakfast is rather poor. It's the forst time i stay in a 4 stars hotel and it has nothing warm for breakfast (only cold starters)

                    staff at reception were pleasant and helpful, hotel lobby is nice, parking is not expensive for Florence

                    part of the hotel where we stayed was not very clean, furniture in the rooms is very simple, poor bathroom unacceptable for a 4 * hotel
