My husband and I spent a day and a half in Florence and one night in the Principe Hotel. What an amazing stay! Our room overlooked the garden, which enabled us to sleep with the window open at night and sit on the balcony enjoying the quietness. Everything was wonderful, no complaints anywhere. We were able to keep our luggage... More

This hotel is exactly what I wanted from a european hotel. The detail and the size of the rooms are impressive. The service and room cleaning is impeccable. The breakfast is somthing to be experienced, the presentation and the waiter service is excellent.We would come back here in a minute. The room shutters meant total darkness and quiet. The room...

This hotel is so lovely and in a wonderful location. Our Arno Suite is fabulous but I cannot get beyond the smell of cigarette smoke that greets you in the lobby and follows you up and into your room. Thank goodness for windows that open but at night when it's too cool to leave them open the smell of smoke... More

I had travelled here with my mother and sister in early March and stayed for 4 nights. I experienced a couple nights in a beautiful suite overlooking the Arno, then my sister arrived (who shared with my mother and I moved into a single room overlooking the city. My husband joined for the last night and so I moved into... More

Small, clean and quiet hotel at Arno River. Hotel offers free parking. Rooms are nice and clean, internet works good. Nice breakfast and helpful staff. 10-15 minutes walk to Piazza Signoria and Repubblica. Walking distance to main station.

I checked out reviews of this hotel before booking it and was not disappointed. This was a surprise birthday trip for my wife. The hotel was easy to find and a short walk from the main station. Located by the river it was a good base for sight seeing with all the main attractions being in walking distance. The rooms... More

We used the Hotel Principe in 2004 and 2013, for ourselves and several friends. Great location, on N side of Arno, looking across River at the Altrarno and Chiesa Della Carmine, and about a 5 min walk or short taxi ride from Santa Maria Novella train station. Family run, this former palace once housed the mistress of Victor Emmanuel II... More

The hotel came like a blessing to us when we can't find affordable rooms in a jump-packed Firenze on a New Year's eve. The room price was below the average on that peak season and we were lucky enough to have found it in the nick of time. The quality of the services is superb with a feel that you... More

Pros: Large room with nice terrace overlooking the river for a reasonable price. Good location within 10-15 minute walk to major attractions. Free parking. WiFi worked well and room was comfortable with large TV and safe. Cons: modest breakfast; staff somewhat stiff and very reluctantly allowed to leave the car on property after early check out. Overall good choice for... More

We liked very much Arno river view from balcony. Room was clean and bathroom big. Decor is old romantic style. Not far walk from sights. Breakfast was good and my man praised coffee. One night was party next building behind the wall and they (young people) play music loud, I told that to desk man and I think he solve... More
