  • Exquisite Hotel, perfect location.

    I'll start with saying wow. What an elegant and beautiful hotel. We stayed here for 3 nights in October and it was perfect. It is wonderfully situated. Steps away from Ponte Vecchio and the Arno. Moments away from an incredible amount of shops and restaurants and a beautiful stroll away from major landmarks like Duomo. The hotel itself is like a landmark. It's a beautiful, traditional and quiant building that is immaculately decorated. Very elaborate and classy. We stayed in an annex room, I'd recommend another room as the bathroom was quite small. It was OK though. Breakfast was included and whilst it was a small choice, service and setting were great. The rooftop terrace is breathtaking. Don't hesitate! Stay here and come to Florence!

  • View is worth the price of the room

    This lovely hotel was recommended by a friend. The service was fabulous. The breakfast couldn’t be beat. It is a good walk from the bus and train stations but the view from the Torre bar was amazing. It is accessible all day for pictures. We watched the sunrise there.

  • Gleaming, Historic

    An ancient tower with two terraces way up a secret stairwell (up, up, up!) with views of Florence and the Duomo. A magnificent breakfast gathering room, a brilliant hotel room with sky high wood ceilings. Location right near all Florence. Minutes to Uffizi and the Arno River. Great breakfast with proud staff. Caring attention. We asked for simple ice and were brought wine glasses and ice bucket. Front desk personnel are business professionals. Teeny t.v. way across the room (unimportant), no coffee in room, remodeled bath is gorgeous. This is our favorite. Don’t tell.
