Only Fifteen Minutes from Florence Cathedral

The San Gallo Palace Hotel is only five kilometers from the airport in the San Lorrenzo district of Florence. It is surrounded by the marvels of the Renaissance architecture, and bus Number 1 stops just outside of the building for visitors who choose to skip walking to any of the sights. There is a shuttle that runs between the airport and the Santa Maria train station of Florence, which is only a short taxi ride from the hotel. Tourists hiring a car can take advantage of discounted on-site parking. The Florence Botanical Gardens and the Accademia Gallery housing David of Michelangelo are within walking distance. The tourist bus C1 is a convenient solution for those who would like to get around the main sites of Florence conveniently.

The setting of the hotel is excellent for those who like strolling around historical streets and touring the Basilica di San Lorenzo. The main market of the city is only a few minutes away and is great for shoppers who are looking for unique gifts, leather, and designer clothing items made in Italy.

Expert Reviews
The San Gallo Palace is not so much a palace as it is a 56-room, mid-range hotel providing clean,...
Rooms offer marble bathrooms, traditional decor, and hardwood floors, but have a somewhat generic look, as well as low-quality bedding and tube TVs. Visitors seeking a quiet stay should request a room facing the courtyard.
