The location is good, walking distance to many major tourist spots. It is right next to the river, a good place to relax. Rooms and bathroom are clean and adequate. The TV had no English language channels, which was a big negative, since we do not understand a word of Italian. On checkout the clerk forgot to ask for the... More

We stayed here seven years ago, loved our return stay this year and would return if we visit Florence again. The owners Barbara and Emanuele were so accommodating. They could not do enough for you. We upgraded to a deluxe room with a view of the Arno. Nice modern bathroom and shower. They have upgraded the power so the rooms... More

Amazed at the good reviews for this hotel. Room 118 is as awful as previous reviews testify! This room is a dark cave of a place that looks staight into another room across a 6 foot wide dark courtyard. The lights have to be kept on all the time. The worst thing however is the bathroom, the hairdryer needs to... More

A rare find - very often the hotels that have the best location don't bother with anything else. This hotel exceeded our expectations. We are a family with 2 teenagers so were checked into room 116 which was fabulous and huge with high decorated ceilings. There was the width of a single bed around each side of beds and an... More

Our plan was to stay the night here on our recent visit to FLorence. Sadly, when we arrived there were no rooms available. However, the owner (I assume) called another hotel across the river and found a room for us there. We went and had an amazing stay. Thank you to Hotel Privilege for being so good to us, when... More

My wife and I loved this boutique hotel on the east side of the river. Nice room on the south that overlooked the river. Nice bar restaurant with raised arbor area where you could sit and have a nice glass of wine. Staff was exceptionally nice. Were there in July 2012.

We had a nice experience here. Barbara, one of the managers, helped us with places to go. We stayed a week so we had time to visit extra places. Fiesola was somewhere she recommended and it was a lovely place to go. The breakfast was good. The hotel was nice, it is getting a little tired. One problem I had... More

The Hotel Privilege is a comfortable hotel located on the Arno. We were traveling as an extended family with small children, and we booked two rooms. One room faced the river and the other faced an internal courtyard. The view was not noteworthy from either room. The special attraction of the hotel is the location somewhat out of the hustle...

We spent four nights here in May. The main reason for the choice was because we had friends staying next door at the Plaza Lucchesi. We opted for a cheaper hotel, based on Trip Advisor views. The location is just perfect. The rooms are dated, but they are spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was modest but satisfactory. There is a bar... More
