Presentation Hotel Palazzo Galletti - Residenza D'Epoca - Florence

Located in Florence's historic heart at 12 via Sant'Egidio, the Palazzo Galletti B&B is a 10-minute walk to the Duomo and the church of Santa Croce. It is also close to the famous La Pergola and Verdi theatres. On entering the first floor reception area, from the ancient stairs, you are immediately enveloped by the atmosphere of antiquity with the 17th century altar serving as the reception desk. The young owners have gathered ethnic art from around the world and various pieces adorn the walls, making a surprising yet harmonious blend of classical and ethnic styles. Informal luxury is the keynote of this unusual Florence boutique B&B. The owners, who run this refined B&B, have paid meticulous attention to details, including uncovering hitherto unknown frescoes in two of the bedrooms. Guests can choose to sleep under the fresco of Cerere, Giove or Uranus. No expense has been spared in the specialist restoration work of this 19th century palazzo, bringing it to life so that the old atmosphere of Florence can be enjoyed by guests in the 21th century. The true history of this palace comes through in the magical hours of your mornings. The 1550 kitchen with its wide-low hooded sink and its vaulted ceilings, where breakfast is served, gives one the impression of experiencing the past. It is truly a treasure, we invite you to disagree!
