    The ambiance, the spacious room offered at price rate of 139 euro with a nice balcony. Well located a little outside the center (perfect if you have a car). Nice old style pool to refresh after walking in the city or day of work.The historical villa building and the outside park are a very beautiful mixture of art and history. Fantastic breakfast area on the terrace facing the swimming pool.

    Might be noisy at summer (with open windows) earing the sound of the cars on the adjacent streets. The extra costs for car parking might be avoided.

    This is the only hotel we would reccommend in Florence. Our daughter spent a year there receiving a master in European Economic Policy. She was able to show us the entire area around Florence from this small gem of a hotel. It is more like an exclusive villa than hotel. Staying in Park Palace, which was apparently the Swiss consulate at one time, gives one the opportunity to experience the hillside/Tuscan flavor of the Florence area. There are quite a few significant gardens and churches, restaurants within 5-10 minute easy walk, and the city center is downhill, about 15-20 minutes walking. We are in our 60s and if we go to Firenze again, we will stay there. The pool and gardens, terrace restaurant are exceptional.

    The balcony could have had a more welcoming feel.... Maybe a sweeping daily, or some flowers.

    The staff may offer the room which is not located in the main building. There is no description about the additional building, so this can be an unpleasant surprise upon arrival to the hotel. This is not bad, but it has no view, close to the road, and the exterior can't be compared with the main building, you also have to walk for a breakfast in the mourning or to lobby (it was not convenient as we stayed in winter and it was cold in the mourning).Try to get information about your stay beforehand for not being surprised.

    Full accordance to name: it's a hotel in palace building located in nice park. Swimming pool, best facilities like library, piano hall, indoor and outdoor dinner-room. Easy to come from city center by bus/sightseeing bus. Very friendly staff.

    Garden; style; ambiance; breakfast; comfort, beds, lounge, garden, breakfast on terrace; most staff.

    Lack of view despite website saying: 'an exquisite panoramic view of the city'. Maybe some rooms but it's surrounded by close mature trees. Broken furnature, no bath plug and on one afternoon, returning hot and tired there was no hot water for a relaxing bath. Not being warned about mosquitos although from a comment from member of staff it was clear they were aware of a problem and in our room the anti-insect device had been disconnected - result over 45 bites between us and quite severe reaction. Although it is difficult for them to control nature we felt the steps taken were insufficient eg checking room units plugged in. See below the yes is a 'yes but'

    Very nice location in the hills above Florence - so far less noisy / crowded than in the city, but easy to get to the centre by bus or taxi. Nice classic decor, big comfy room and lovely terrace where you can take meals looking out over the garden and swimming pool. Helpful staff.

    Having already booked our stay at Park Palace I was very concerned when reading some of the negative reviews....one woman spoke of the 50 minute walk to town when we had read it was a 15 minute walk....the reality? She went the wrong way!! This is a beautiful villa in a beautiful neighborhood, the 18 minute *by our watch* walk to town is down a beautiful old street, it brings you right to the Ponte Vecchio...the breakfast was over the top, fresh fresh fruit, all manner of baked goods, fresh meats and cheeses, the list goes on...I Would not recommend dinner given there are so many fabulous restaurants a short distance to town....the bus takes a bit of time but drops you (or picks you up) directly across from the Villa...we chose this location to be a bit removed from the city centre where the nights can sometimes be noisy....the staff was so friendly and had great senses of humor and were incredibly helpful with any questions or needs...the pool is lovely and quiet....overall a beautiful place to stay....

    I feel the price at $300.00 per night was high given you do have to travel to get to town where a hotel of equal quality would be closer to $200.00....and again, dinner not the best for the price given what you can find in town, however, we were especially tired one evening and opted to dine on the terrace overlooking the pool and the service was great, the wine great....food was only ok...

    One of the Grand Hotels on Florence. Yes, it was a Palace and it still shows, beautiful garden, nice swimming pool and a lovely Foyer and Library and Terrace room and area. The breakfast is good and you even get an excellent Cappucino if you ask for it. A place to reflect, imagine the grandness of the medicis and prepare for the art and culture visit downtown Florence. Parking costs 10 Euros, which is ok and the internet usage is free

    Close to city, but not right in it. Hotel feels like you are a hundred miles from any cities at all, but only a short bus or drive to Florence...fantastic. Great little bar/restaurant within a short walk.

    Charge for parking

    Excellent hotel if you have a car (free parking) and/or if you don't (bus stop in front). 10 minutes from Florence Center. Beautiful garden and swimming pool. Good breakfast. Fantastic cost/benefit.
