Hotel reception staff on arrival very efficient and helpful. Lovely comfortable room, everything we needed including view of Il Duomo. Although on a busy street, double shutters on window and no problem sleeping. The musicians on the street in the evening were a welcome bonus to

This bed and breakfast is in a great location. A couple doors down from the beautiful Florence Duomo and a short walk to David.
Other pluses- elevator, beautifully decorated room, helpful service, across from Eataly Deli.
Only minus (costing 1 star) - tiny shower with flimsy ma

Palazzo Ruspoli is in an amazing location, just outside piazza do Duomo. You can see the cathedral from some of the rooms.
The room is big and comfortable. The only issue is the noise. It’s in the city center and there is noise late at night and also early in the morning.

Response from GeneralmanagerFi, Direttore generale at Palazzo Ruspoli
Responded Oct. 10, 2018
Dear Guest, We want to thank you for sharing your experience at our Palazzo Ruspoli in Florence. All information and details that you have given are absolutely precious to us, and will permit us to improve our service. We want to assure you that our daily and most important effort is committed to make unforgettable the experience of our Guests with us. For this reason, and for our attitude, we feel very sad for not having satisfied your expectations. The Palazzo Ruspoli is a Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Florence; as clearly described, both on our web site and partner channels, that staff is available in the morning and in the afternoon and outside reception hours, Guests can have information, assistance and concierge service at the Hotel Brunelleschi and Check in for Guests after 6,30pm: Hotel Brunelleschi is only 400 meters away. We understand some Guests might feel uncomfortable, this is the reason why we describe the limited service the most clearly we can: ‘A concierge service available from 8 am to 11 am and 2 pm to 6,30 pm’. We are delighted to read that the location of Palazzo Ruspoli made your stay even more enjoyable; the glasses and gaskets of our windows are soundproof. The soundproof level is enough to avoid the usual noises from the street, but eventually, not enough for some specific situations. We also have introduced for our Guests amenities as earplugs, added into the rooms during the turndown service, to ensure the most comfortable night experience. We hope that you could consider to give us a second chance if you will be back in Florence. We would be honored to have the opportunity to give you the best memories to take home and we hope you would like to consider the possibility to visit one of our property another time : we would be delighted to welcome you again. With my warmest regards Carla Balli Guest Relation

We were very interested in booking with the Palazzo Ruspoli since it was associated with the Hotel Brunelleschi. We are quite concerned to read some of the disappointing reviews posted in 2017. What steps have been taken by the management to address the issues in the reviews?
Buongiorno, thank you very much for your message. Is there any specific issues you would like me to talk about? Some of the negative comments we have had are not "issues" to fix as they are characteristics of the Bed and Breakfast such as : . limited reception hours - duly described in our web site . some rooms without air conditioning (only superior do have air conditioning) . hot dishes at breakfast - we serve the typical Continental Breakfast . noise from the street - the B&B is in the city center and because the level of noise is very personal it is difficult for us to say that the B&B is noisy as this depends from the Guests' perception - I am at your disposal for any further information you may need and please use my email if you like to have more information / rates on the Palazzo Ruspoli. With my warmest regards, Claudio Catani

ciao , ho prenotato proprio oggi due giorni in questa struttura con un cofanetto emozione 3. per caso sai se il b&b dispone di un parcheggio e come funziona?
Ciao. Mi dispiace, ero intreno, quindi non so dirti del parcheggio. Calcola che è molto vicino alla Cattedrale quindi sarebbe piuttosto complicato arrivare in auto, penso sia ZTL. Conviene chiamare per sentire, e in caso comunicare targa auto per autorizzazione ad entrare. Ciao :)

"our room overlooked the cathedral/Dumo. walking distance to everything we wanted to visit"
"The street musicians played until 11 pm or so, but after that, it was fairly quiet. Rooms away from the street could possibly be quieter."
"Some rooms overlooking the street where there are cafes and street musicians which could bother some people"
"Avoid staying at this property!"
"Facing the Duomo!"
