My wife and I stayed here from 20th-23rd February 2015 for our wedding anniversary after a recommendation from my sister. It is located within walking distance of all the sights and we didn't get a taxi once during our whole stay. We got the Terravision bus from Pisa airport which took about one hour and the bus stop was only... More

For years I have been returning to visit Florence having lived and studied there. It has always been my favorite city in the world. I have tried various hotels and can honestly say I have found the one I will only stay in on future trips. The location in Via Tornabuoni is perfect. The most beautuful road in Florence, closed...

Recently stayed here for 3 nights and would certainly recommend it. Room looked recently decorated, breakfast was better than i expected (included egg & bacon) for a continental style breaky and the staff couldnt do enough to help. 12PM checkout was also a bonus too. Not much i can fault other than the eggs could have been a bit hotter... More

The room was quite large for a European hotel. It is beautifully decorated. The bed was very confortable and everything was very clean. The hotel staff were extremely helpful in going out of their way to accommodate us. If you are looking for a hotel in central Florence, this is it!!

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. We were able to get a corner room on the 2nd floor. The room was very spacious and had a nice decor. The bed was actually two single beds pushed together, so there was a crevice in between. The bathroom was pretty standard, no issues. We were able to adjust the room... More

I couldn't be more proud to have chosen this hotel solely based on my own research and hadn't been to Florence before! The location is superb - walking distance from the main train station (Santa Maria Novella), right on the prestigious shopping street for Tornabuoni (right above Gucci), walking distance to ALL sights. The hotel is extremely clean, rooms are... More

Wow. You totally under sold it ((Will Farrell)) The staff was genuinely sweet, friendly and helpful. The decor, the service, the rooms-- wow. I stayed in many cute b&bs and hotels throughout my tour of Europe and this was my top favorite. If you want to match the romanticism you feel in Florence, this hotel will do the trick. My... More

This was our first time to the refurbished Isabella and fourth time in Florence staying on Tornabouoni. This was the best we have had. We brought 2 other couples for their first visit and loved it.

A wonderful experience. Adriana, Simona, Reny- all went out of their way to make our stay special. The room, though small, is nicely appointed and comfortable. Breakfast is very good and the location is perfect. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
