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. They did it all from providing dinner recommendations/reservations to preparing the breakfast! The owner even waited outside on our departing day to ensure that we got our taxi on time at 4am! The...

This is the second time I and my friends have stayed at the Privilege in Florence for very good reasons. Hosts Emanuele and Barbara are extremely accommodating, very friendly, and professional.

During a backpacking trip across Europe, a friend and I stumbled into Hotel Privilege with hopes for directions. The staff went above and beyond helping us and were so generous to us in their amazing customer service. We decided to stay there for a few days. Their hotel was very luxurious and comfortable. It also has a beautiful location! Barbara... More

We picked Hotel Privilege based on other Trip Advisor reviews. Of all the hotels we stayed at during our trip throughout Italy, Hotel Privilege was our least favorite. We were really surprised given the positive reviews we researched. Our experience was not that great. While located near the main areas of Florence, the hotel is dated, carpets worn, the room...

We spent three nights at Hotel Privilege in their large room. We were four adults and it was very comfortable. The location was quiet and easily accessible. The staff were very personable and welcoming. Would definitely recommend as a good base hotel for family while exploring beautiful Florence.

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
