I agree with all the previous reviewers that this is a convenient place to stay. It is clean and comfortable. The breakfast is not of the highest standard. I remarked on the state of the window boxes on the top floor bar and they did then water them! It left a feeling that as they are fully booked, everything is... More

The Pitti Palace Hotel is in the ideal location for sightseeing in the beautiful city of Florence being just over the Ponte Vecchio from the main drag. The rooms were clean, fairly spacious and comfortable. The restaurant, which had an excellent dinner menu, was on the 6th floor which gave good views of the city's rooftops. We found staff very...

Pitti Palace hotel is in a great location - only a few steps from the famous bridge and close to all the tourist attractions. The room was spacious, very clean with a very comfortable bed; great bathroom facilities. The hotel has a top floor Bar that also offers a limited food menu. Sitting in this roof top facility, looking out... More

The location of this hotel is perfect if you want to be close to everything. You are literally steps from the Ponte Vecchio Bridge and the wonders of Florence on the other side of the river. It is easy walking distance to all of the main Florence attractions. The hotel is fairly modern having been bult within the walls of... More

The location cannot be beat. You are 15 steps from the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. Within easy walking distance to all of the main Florence attractions. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant has one of the best most romantic views of Florence. And the Food was good. Breakfast was so so, but everything else was great. The bathrooms... More

Pitti Palace Hotel is an old established hotel that has had some refurbishment. It's in a great location right on the edge of Ponte Vecchio. Like many Italian hotels the rooms are not large and have mostly basic facilities. Our Deluxe Double room had two single beds put together. The bathroom was quite pokey but manageable. We stayed six days... More

Pretty little hotel which, like many in this part of Florence, has been built within the shell of a much older building. As such, the rooms aren't huge, but they are clean and well equipped. As one might expect for a hotel of this class, telephone, minibar, flat screen TV with satellite channels, air conditioning, sound proofing, shower/bath, hairdryer..... There... More

This hotel is definitely in a central location in Florence. Very busy and right in the midst of all shopping traffic. The room was a good size and it was clean, however, we could not get passed the very strong sewer-like smell coming from the bathroom plumbing. We had to close the drains and shut the bathroom door, sticking a... More
