    Wonderful Stay, charming hosts.

    Our hosts at Panella's Residence, Graziella and Giuseppewere are awesome. We had a wonderful time with them, talking about all sorts of things, they are very friendly and helpful. The residence has an interesting history, and has character. The location is very close to to the Duomo, and is easy to get to. The room was nice and big, and had air conditioning, which was nice after a hot day out. There are stairs to navigate, but that is a fact of life in many places in Europe. Breakfast was very good, with a good selection of foods presented by Graziella and Giuseppe. Loved our time here, no complaints, will stay here again when next in Florence.

    Great value if you can handle the stairs!

    Panella's is an old convent not far from the SMN train station in Florence. Rooms are big. Breakfast is wonderful. Mrs. Panella is very kind and helpful. It's a historic building and by law they can't modernize it. We loved it but not everyone appreciates old character. Three small issues. A/C doesn't work well (this is an issue all over Europe). Cooled the room but not by as much as most Americans would like. It was about 78 F at best. WiFi dropped constantly---which is an issue also in these old buildings with thick stone walls, not sure much can be done about it. Lastly, the room was up about 40 ancient steep stairs. I have a bad knee and bad balance and this about did me in. I blame Rick Steves for not putting this in the guide! If you're fit, this is no issue...but if stairs are a problem, this might not be the place for you. Otherwise a charming, delicious, good value!

      Heritage building with good location

      Great location - within easy walking distance to the various sights. Our room was very spacious with a lovely high ceiling although a little noisy. The towels and linen were on the tired side eg towels were torn and the hotel itself could have been cleaner. Breakfast was very simple.
