One of two unique experiences in Florencefrom JChua
In such a beautiful hill town like Florence, I have found two types of unique hotels you could choose to stay in - a private Palazzo or a private Villa. In March 2006, I have opted to stay one night at the former, a Palazzo Magnani Feroni.
It is a former private residence, now converted into a boutique style, suites-only Hotel. This hotel has a history of about 500 years, and you could easily feel and see the lifestyle of the rich and famous in the years gone by.
Since it was late winter, I was given a special rate for their one and only, Fresco Junior Suite. As the name implies, the room has frescos from the walls to the ceilings - you practically feel as though you are living in a 'Museum' rather than in a Hotel room! Moreover, it has a private little nice garden, too. Bathroom was huge as well.
The Hotel is really of a 5 stars standard -Bvlgari toiletries, fragrant soaps to choose from, music CDs to choose from, countless TV channels, about 30 magazines to read in your room - one could have easily stayed in the Suite whole day long, and you would not be bored! That is why we always try to go back to the Suite as early as possible to enjoy its unique atmosphere.
The rest of the Hotel is just as amazing - the beautiful Breakfast room, the Billard room, the Library, the Leopard skin lounge, the common Gardens in the air well, the roof top bar.
All in all, it is a very unique experience staying in such a Hotel. However, these are the areas it could improve upon - the beds should be of the canopy type to match the surroundings, there should at least be a crystal chandelier in each Suite, and the buffet breakfast could have been a wider choice one.
Stay here and you will have even better memories of your stay in beautiful Florence.

This is a great hotel.from A TripAdvisor Member
I read the two negative reviews and wondered if we were writing about the same hotel.
Remember, this is an Italian Hotel not one of the American chains. If you want a supurb Italian hotel stay here. If you want to feel like you're still in the USA stay somewhere else.
The location is excellent. Two blocks to the Ponte Vecchio, 3 to the Uffizi Gallery. Great trattorias very close to the hotel. Coffee and Ice always available.
If you pay the rack rate it's expensive. Maybe too expensive. Check for their specials. If you choose to stay there ask for the "Angelica" Suite.
We're returning in the Spring.
Palazzo Magnani Feroni è un hotel meraviglioso. Recomend I questo hotel.

Top Local Tips for Florence
Restaurant recommendation - Borgo San Jacopo Borgo San Jacopo down the street had fabulous food and was a sleek, modern restaurant overlooking the river. we loved it.
Florence at night... If you are travelling in summer, venture out in the evening after about 7:30pm, when the sun goes down and it starts to cool off. The City is a different place at night. On Friday night around 9pm, take a leisurely stroll to Piazza della Signoria where you can listen to live music with a small crowd. (An American couple - songs from artists like Cat Stevens, Simon & Garfunkle, Everly Brothers, John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Robbie Williams, etc). You can spend the evening listening, or you can listen as you walk through.
Discount shopping If you plan to do serious shopping, take a tour to the prada, gucci, etc outlets. Its about an hour away but everything is at least 50% off
