This hotel provided the perfect Florentine experience. It could not have been more charming, from the lovely outdoor garden to the sitting room off of the lobby to the frescoed ceiling of the breakfast room. The staff at the desk were unfailingly accommodating. The hotel has all of the appeal of the pensiones of another era, with all of the... More

We stayed 4 nights at this charming old world hotel. It was like sleeping in a suite at Versailles. High Ceilings parquet floors and beautiful furnishings. Located on the river Arno just a few blocks from the Uffizi Museum. The views are fantastic history at every view. All that said the staff makes this hotel 5 stars, service and caring... More

Yes, I'm late review this hotel. But I can remember this from 3 years ago and this says a lot! The room I booked was great and the staff was always being over backwards for me. I asked over and over to change booked tours and change the dates. I even asked the impossible and book me on the next... More

I enjoyed my 3-nights' stay at this boutique hotel for the most part. 1) Great location - it's located right on the water front, very easy to go out and have a stroll along the beautiful river Arno. Some main attractions (such as Duomo) are within 15~20min walk which is manageable. 2) Beautiful rooftop - I discovered the rooftop the... More

The Principe was a bit old ; very small & slow elevator , small bathtub / shower - which uou would expect to find in older buildings. but well appointed. Lodging in Florence is expensive in general but I expected a bit more for my money. Also, if you get a room on the west side of the building, there... More

We searched and searched for a decent room in Florence that was close to the city center that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Principe fit the bill and was even more than we expected. Hotel staff were all exceptional and the room was rustic and comfortable. They offered nightly appetizers and daily breakfast that were both delicious with... More

Our room, with a balcony for cocktails and coffee, looked over the Arno River. Exactly what you would expect from old world charm. The employees couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. The hotel came with parking in a gated courtyard where we were permitted to leave our car for hours after check-out. Highly recommend this hotel…it is a great... More
