All the great comments are correct about this hotel. Staying here saved our vacation as we accidentally booked a terrible hotel. Luckily the Lungarno had an opening and although it was more than triple the price of our crappy so-called 4 star Mona Llsa hotel, it has been so worth it. We booked a room on the top floor with a river view. We arrived after dark so when awoke in the morning to one of the most beautiful views we have ever seen we were extremely thankful to be able to stay here. If you can make it work, it's way worth the extra money to stay here....the location is spectacular as is everything else.
