This is by far a five-star plus plus hotel. From the minute you arrive you are made to feel at home. Francesca and Paolo were exceptional and everything they recommended was spot on. Thank you. The unobtrusive entrance tucked away in the heart of the city gives nothing away about the exceptional service and 5 star accomodation you find inside. The building has been beautifully and tastefully renovated, keeping it's old charm whilst having all the mod cons. We stayed there 10 days ago, where the temperatures were saoring and humidity was stifling, and due to its walking proximity to all the major attractions, it was a welcome relief to be able to come back to the comfort of a luxurious air- conditioned hotel and room. We stayed in the Machievelli deluxe room- huge, luxurios, divine soft bed and pillows, superb shower head!! and the little staircase leading to the balcomy was an added feature that we never used due to it being so hot but I could picture lovely chilled glasses of proseco being enjoyed watching the sunset had it not been so hot and humid. the room also had a fully stocked little kitchen which if we had stayed longer, we would have used to make light lunches as the market was about 6/7 minutes away. We only visited it on our last day and what a revelation it was. Beautifullly displayed food stall after food stall.Breakfast was DELICIOUS, especially the freshly baked goodies.This was by far our favourite hotel in our 3 week stay in Italy and we cannot wait to return back here in the future. This is a top notch hotel, with extremely personal attention and exceptionally attentive and warm staff. FANTASTICO.

“Palazzo Vecchieti, Florence”
It was the occassion of my 50th birthday and myself and my husband spent 6 fabulous days enjoying Florence from this wonderful old style Pallazzo.
It is situated ideally in the heart of the old town opposite beautiful Florentine squares ,palazzos and ideal for designer shopping and all the historical sites museums and pAlaces which are all within walking distance .
There is a great variety of wonderful places to eat and our personal butler recommended superb restuarants for special celebrations , great Trattorias for typical Italian cuisine and wine bar style bistros for just light lunches .
We were greeted after a long but most enjoyable high speed train journey from Paris by Paulo , our personal butler and an introductory glass of prosecco and an overview of the history, before settling into our very comfortable suite.(Paulo thank you , you were fabulous !)
Breakfast is served in a wonderful welcoming dining room , with a great selection of breakfast delights from ham and cheeses , through fresh fruit cereal and yoghurt, to italian pastries .Coffee ,teas etc are all served in fine bone china, by the very attentive staff.
All in all we had a fabulous trip , much enhanced by this beautiful hotel and its staff.
My only reservation in posting this review is that you will all book it and there will be no availbility when I will undoubtedly return.!
I think overall the best birthday experience I have enjoyed - hope you do too.
Very good accomodation. Paolo and all other staff members are friendly, helpfull and accomodating all your needs. It's a very peaceful oase in the middle of the city.
Rooms don't have stunning views, but who cares. Room was very well isolated from the noise of the city, breakfast in the room was really good ( use this option).
Bathroom ( rainshower ) was a real treat.
“An excellent home in Florence”
This will always be our home in Florence.
This place is worth flying to and must be
considered a destination by itself.
Paolo and Jacobi treated us like family
members and served perfectly all our needs.
The palace is beautifully decorated and
the suits are very modern comfortable
and make you feel at home.
The breakfast room is like the best we had with an English country house ambience.
The location is perfect.
Surely coming back.
