San Gallo Palace

San Gallo Palace, Tuscany Italy

★   ★   ★    ★

Chic gleaming B&B with tasteful “city-style” decor; not the most inspiring location at the edge of city centre so it’s quite a walk to most of the sights. Attracts large percentage of business clientele but would also suit leisure travellers who have their own car and don’t want the arduous task of driving into the centre. Guests have free use of local gym a short distance away.

Exterior

Smart modern building that manages to blend in well with the older surrounding blocks and has a level, covered walkway entrance off the pavement.

Built Year: 2002

Interior

Welcoming interior offers comfortable seating areas with quality furnishings and tasteful decor. A light and airy bar with marble tiling and floor-to-ceiling windows offers a pleasant outside terrace which is privatised from the road by well-kept plants, shrubs and mature trees. A more functional lower-ground floor breakfast room also offers an enclosed terrace which is starved of any views due to its basement like position.

Rooms: 56

Location

Area Type: Just over 1 mile north of Piazza del Duomo, in a rather removed corner of town, overlooking the large, very busy roundabout of Piazza della Liberta, which has a park-like central island in the middle. Its mostly a residential area with little in the way of tourist amenities, though there are a few shops and cafes scattered around the vicinity. The main train station is a mile away. Bus stop is 100 yds.
