4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The location on the Arno River and a 10 minute walk to the old town is a plus, as is the attentive and caring staff. The room was clean and neat; the breakfast was good, some might say great. The price is right. The “yes, but”? – the place is old, the carpeting threadbare and the furniture is dated. Not... More

This hotel is not the cleanest hotel to say the least, however it's livable even to a germopobe such as myself. An error was made from the hotel I was meant to stay in Florence so I had to find one and quick, the lady at the front was very helpful and kind (Barbara I believe was her name). One... More

We first found this hotel nearly 20 yrs ago via the tourist office. The rooms were large, the location was excellent (just a short walk to Santa Croce and some excellent dining) so when we returned some years later, we drove around until we found it and stayed a 2nd time. Now with our 10 yr old daughter in tow,... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at hotel privilege for 4 nights in April and had a wonderful experience. Our room was ground level after a walk through the building and into garden courtyard where our room overlooked. Clean bed and great toiletries and shower. The staff always welcomed us and made sure we were accommodated. We did not have breakfast... More

My first time at the Hotel Privilege was years ago, when like you, I did my research. I did not know the owners then and since we have become close friends. But I digress, I found the hotel to be in the most convenient location, the breakfast was impeccable, the rooms, much larger than what you would expect in Italia.... More

Needed serious cleaning. Public places were dirty and rugs were filthy and very worn. I booked this hotel for the location based on reviews from trip advisor. We must have the rooms that were the worst if that picture is genuine. We always book standard rooms and have never had such basic, accommodations. At least the beds were clean and... More

Dear Client, thank you for your review on our Property. Please note we only pour a great mixture of coffee beans in the coffee grinder so we do not really understand what the other couple of clients reported to you during breakfast . We might pour fresh still water in the american coffee kettle . We are sure it's about... More

After reading all of the reviews on trip advisor, i was VERY DISAPPOINTED with my stay at Hotel Privilege. The location was good, opposite the river and easy access to the Ponte Vecchio. Our room was under the stairs and next to a broom closet, so we often woke up to strange noises. Would definitely not stay here again and... More

We arrived in Florence the morning after what were supposedly some of the worst storms to ever hit Florence. There were tree branches in the road and damage to cars. We originally booked at the Silla Hotel across the river, and the manager there already had a room for us at the Hotel Privilege, and a car waiting to take... More

My wife and I were in Florence for three days and two nights. Allesandro and his staff were friendly and helpful. We arrived too early to check in, but they parked our car and stored our bags so we could head out to the Uffizi Museum. We came back several hours later and found our bags in the room. The... More

Dear Florence lovers, what is "dolce vita"? I will tell you. I love Italian language and I enrolled in a 2 week course at Scuola Toscana, located in Via dei Benci, 5 minutes from the Hotel Privilege.
