This small hotel on the Arno has been run with by the same Florentine family since the mid-fifties, and the pride shows in the attentive management. Principe is close to the center without being inside the ZTL; it's a quick walk to the Ponte Vecchio and museums. The location, the parking, the garden and all indoor public areas are superb....

In a great location on the Arno River, a classical building in the local style. The room was large and lovely with the most amazing antique wardrobe. We were greeted with champagne and a fruit platter on arrival. The hotel is within an easy and beautiful walk to the main attractions of Florence. If travelling by car, parking is good... More

Your stay here will feel like your home away from home. The hotel is intimate and comfortable and Giuliano and his staff are gracious and helpful without being overbearing. Our room (#422) had a balcony that overlooked the Arno river. Spectacular view! Gazing over the city was a great way to start and end the day. Besides the full breakfast... More

We spent 5 days in Florence in late October. Our hotel, is three bridges away from the Ponte Vecchio area. It is only a short and beautiful walk to the main attractions. Thank goodness we were able to book here. Right on the Arno river, with no noise, and no throngs of tourists. This is a small hotel, proudly family... More

Fantastic setting overlooking the river, in a quiet part of central Florence, about half a mile from the Ponte Vecchio bridge. 20 room hotel in a classic Italian Villa. Stunning rooms as you enter the hotel. Staff very polite and helpful. Rooms were spotless and spacious in the Italian style. Bathroom was large and clean but dated. Hot water took... More

We knew the place was special when we saw the white carpet runner laid out on the entrance. As other reviewers have said, this hotel is well cared for in all the public areas. The staff is attentive, the breakfasts excellent (you have to ask for eggs which are prepared specifically to order and are not left out in a... More

The service here is excellent. The hotel has a very cosy feel to it and the staff knew us quickly so I felt comfortable allowing my 9 and 11 year olds to go to the breakfast hall on their own. The front desk staff was helpful in making reservations for us. The breakfast had plenty of variety, fresh cappuccino, and... More

The hotel has style. The staff has been extremely pleasant and helpful. All common areas and the garden area are lovely. Breakfast service is top notch. Our room 44 needed a face lift. The window blinds are broken and the blankets are pilled.

Based upon a recommendation from a friend, my college roommate and I spent 6 nights here. It was the perfect location and we enjoyed our terrace on the river with super sunsets. The owner and staff were always anxious to assist us with travel plans, restaurants, directions. It was a treat to enjoy the hotel private garden, breakfast al fresco... More
