Absolutely Wonderful Hotel!

Pros: The location, the staff, the quality of the room furnishings and the bathroom facilities.
Cons: Nothing, really. It just is a very, very pleasant surprise to find such a nice facility right in the heart of a very heavily trafficked tourist area.
Location: 500 feet from the Duomo, the Baptistry Doors, 5 minute walk to the Uffizi Gallery, Galileo Museum, Ponte Vecchio.
I’ve traveled to many countries around the world for over 50 years. I would rank Hotel Spadai as one of the best that I have stayed at. With only about 50 rooms, it can offer first-class attention to guests and their needs, in an absolutely wonderful small hotel that was totally remodeled inside-out in 2015. All public-facing staff have the same eager-to-please attitude that you find at a Four Seasons. The location is excellent (about 500 feet from the Duomo), they offer a great buffet breakfast and large selection of free appetizers during 6-8:30 PM Happy Hour with the purchase of a drink, and they have a 360-degree view of Florence from a 6th floor cupola that is just wonderful. The rooms are so clean that they even have a whimsical card under the bed that says, “There is no need to fear unpleasant surprises. We are also attentive to the most hidden corners.” Overall, just a great experience. My wife and I would definitely stay there again in a heartbeat!

Family Trip to Italy

Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing I can think of.
I cannot say enough about how wonderful we thought Hotel Spadai was. We traveled in Italy with my family. We had 3 regulars rooms and one suite. All the rooms were lovely. The service of the front desk and other staff was superlative. We thoroughly enjoyed the hotel's Happy Hour which included a wide assortment of light snacks and food, and the breakfast, which also included a substantial assortment of tasting breakfast items. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Florence. Plus it is very convenient, just a block away from the Duomo.

Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: It's one block from the Duomo. Perfect location.
The location of this hotel is insane! One block to the Duomo. Location just doesn't get any more perfect so check that off your list. Furthermore, this hotel is CRAZY COOL!!! Room was large, modern, state of the art electronics, bedding incredible, bathroom huge! I have not one bad thing to say about this place. Staff was helpful and friendly. Service was impeccable. We stayed at four hotels in four different cities and they were all good but this was my favorite. Hopefully we will get back to Florence and we will definitely stay here again. If we DON'T get back, I honestly will not forget this place. Very memorable!!!!!

Fabulous Find in the heart of Florence

Pros: I loved the location, the friendly staff, the modern comfortable room, and the decor which was modern and relaxing.
Cons: Our jacuzzi did not work, but it was a great bathtub and I did not miss the bubbles.
Location: You can easily walk to all the museums, shops and restaurants.
What a morvelous find. The hotel is only a few months old. It is modern, super clean and the rooms were beautiful with great beds. They gave us a complimentary glass of Prosecco upon arrival and even had complimentary treats in our hotel room mini bar. The location was perfect- just off San Marco Plaza. And, as if the great decor, comfort, and service were not enough, the price was more than reasonable. This hotel is a gem and is the only place I will stay in Florence.

Exceeded our expectations

We had a wonderful experience at Hotel Spadai. It is in a fantastic location, steps from the Duomo, San Lorenzo and great shopping and 10 minutes walk from the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. The hotel is brand new and everything is in tip top condition. Rooms were very comfortable and well appointed, staff was very helpful and breakfast was excellent. We would definitely stay again and recommend. Excellent value.
