Stayed here for a total of four nights and loved the location right in the heart of Firenze- walking distance to everything.
Rooms were spacious, clean, and had great bathrooms.
Service excellent in hotel and Lorenzo at the front desk was very helpful with appropriate restaurant recommendations, directions etc
Breakfast was excellent-- miss the awesome coffee and food.

Stayed April 2012, travelled with family

We spent five nights here and loved it. The room was comfortable and huge, as was the bathroom and everything worked. The staff were helpful and polite and we had a wonderful stay. As an added bonus, the decor was beautiful and full of history. it isn't every day that you eat breakfast in a room several centuries old with a painted ceiling and minstrel's gallery.

The Hotel Bernini is just one block from the Piazza della Signoria, an excellent location in Florence. After checking in, the desk clerk escorted us to our room and showed us around. The room was spacious with a nice bathroom and nice shower/tub, a luxury in Europe. The breakfast room had excellent food. We ate there even though it was not included with our room. The staff was friendly and helpful, except that they didn't know how to make a collect call from the room phone - a very minor issue. The bed was comfortable, and the closet area was separate from the bedroom and bathroom. I highly recommend the Hotel Bernini for your stay in Florence.

Dear Guest,
we would like to thank you for your nice feedback, we are really happy that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Regarding the collect call, after you comment we have tried again to contact the collect call service to understand what happened to you ( tel. num. 800782478) and we discover that it’s not possible to talk immediately to an operator but only with an answering machine that put you on hold waiting for the first available operator. Unfortunately the waiting times may be very very long!
Sorry for this inconvenience,

We are already looking forward to welcoming you back!
Warm regards
The Bernini Palace Hotel

Great period furniture and deco (a little worn) and the service is exceptional. Great history and the best location

My wife and I have spent the past three days exploring beautiful Florence, making the Bernini Palace our home base. We could not have found a more centrally located hotel from which the entire city is an easy walk. Located near the Uffizi and the Duomo, it is also a very short walk from the Ponte Vecchio and the Pitti Palce. This property is just short of a luxury property, but the amenities are very nice, the rooms a very nice size, the bathrooms well laid out (with separate bathtub/shower and walk in shower. However, the best feature of the hotel is the staff itself. Fluent in English, very knowledgable of local restaurants and sights, and very anxious to be helpful. Lorenzo helped us with dinner reservations, and his recommendations were spot on! I loved this hotel, and will return.

This is a lovely hotel that is footsteps away from the Uffizi, the Ponte Vecchio, the Galileo Museum, etc. Accomodations were superb. It was a bit noisy, even at night given the location wth many "revellers" out and about but it seemed to fit the atmosphere. Staff was very helpful and the chocolates on the pillow were yummy!
