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. What is better? I attended the Italian language school in the morning, then I came to my room for a relaxing "riposino" (how... More

I stayed 3 nights and had a great experience here. The managers were very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable. Though it wasn't a river view, still had a nice side view. The breakfast spread had a great variety of things to choose from. I'd return to stay here.

We stayed here for three nights back in May 2014. Our favorite part of the stay were the owners, which made for more of a personal experience.
