This hotel has to be in the best location in Florence. Ten steps and you are on the Ponte Vecchio bridge, so close to all the attractions and about a 10-15 min walk from the station. This is a very safe area and we were never frightened to walk home late in the evening/early morning. The staff were all friendly... More

What a beautiful place to stay and an excellent location. The double room we had was quite spacious and spotlessly clean. Every day the room was cleaned to a very high standard and toiletries and towels were renewed. The inclusive breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice and coffee, tea, hot water or various flavoured teas. Having breakfast on the... More

We had a top floor double room. Each day the room was cleaned and tidied to a high standard. The breakfast was lovely (although the coffee wasn't great, we had tea instead). There are two terrace areas, one has a view of the Duomo so is naturally busier. There is a second terrace to the rear that is quieter. The... More

We are from Canada and we spent a month backpacking with our 2 daughters in France, Italy and Germany and the Pitti Palace was by far the best hotel we had during our journey. You cannot ask for a better location than the Pitti Palace to visit such a nice city. We enjoyed every minute of our 4 day stay... More

We decided on this hotel based on its location, and we certainly weren't disappointed. It is literally a few steps off the Ponte Vecchio! We had a fantastic room, which overlooked one of the streets, it was exceptionally quiet, cool and very comfortable. We spent 10 nights at the hotel and the room was meticulously cleaned each day. The staff... More

Located on the end of the Ponte Vecchio bridge, we had 3 nights here and the breakfast roof terrace, which is on the 6th floor you get unblocked views of the city, used as wine tasting and a bar at night so you get different views, no doubt we'll be back and would recommend to anyone.

This hotel is situated right at the end of the Ponte Vecchio. That means it is less than 10 minutes walk from the duomo, through some lovely city streets, and only 5-10 minutes from the Boboli Gardens in the other direction. The 6th floor terrace where you can have an excellent and substantial breakfast (and great cocktails at night) overlooks... More

The most amazing hotel, the views from the roof terrace were breathtaking, hotel immaculate, staff amazing, rooms spotless, breakfast good, soundproof rooms, even though it's in the heart of Florence, I would stay here again, and would say it's way more than a 3 star hotel, right on Ponte Vecchio,

Excellent hotel right in the centre of Florence, within easy reach of all major attractions. Helpful staff, good breakfast selection, comfortable room. Superb views from the rooftop restaurant, though pigeons could be a bit of a nuisance! The staff shooed them away quickly.

This lovely hotel is in a perfect location to explore the old Florence. It is just at the foot of the Ponte Vecchio and across the river from the Ufizi Museum. From this hotel you can walk to markets, and many historic buildings like the Duomo and the Pitti Palace. The rooms are nice and the price is reasonable for... More
