An ultra-affordable base in a great destination



An elegant stay near Florence’s historic centre, within walking distance from local gems, with breakfast, a welcome drink and bike hire included

From its beautifully lit marble-tiled lobby, to the polished wooden floors and location-perfect coffee machines of the bedrooms, four-star San Gallo Palace whispers sophisticated Italian elegance throughout. The stylish property’s convenient location near to the historic centre of Florence makes it the perfect choice for a delicious, cultured and retail-fabulous break, with many of Italy’s most prized artworks within a few steps of your front door.

The art of good food and aperitifs is celebrated every day at the hotel, where you can enjoy delicious steaks at Il Tosca Restaurant and snacks fresh from the Mercato Centrale at the bar (there's even an al fresco terrace for taking in a bit of fresh air, weather permitting, during the warmer months). Former guests have praised it for its generous breakfasts, helpful staff and ideal location - features that have all earned it a coveted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and a top-50 ranking among the city’s hotels.
