We stayed here for 3 nights. Our criteria in choosing a hotel was that it must a boutique hotel, located near to the Ponte Vecchio, ranked at least 4 stars, good view of the river/bridge and old medieval town and ranked highly by other travelers. In all aspects - the Lungarno Hotel met our expectation.
We got a room at the 6th floor with a terrace. Wonderful room, very spacious and cosy. Loved the large bathroom too. The terrace offers beautiful view over the Arno river and the old city of Florence. Note - Lungarno hotel is located on the south side (other side) of the Ponte Vecchio, whereas most of the attractions (except for Pitti Palace) are located in the north side. Hence we could see over the river to the north side of the old town dominated by the Duomo and the Palazzo Vecchio. And if you crane you neck out from the terrace - we could get a partial view of the Ponte vecchio. [Note - you do not get a direct view of the iconic bridge from any place in the hotel but a side view. So don't not go there expecting this]. That said, its a short walk to the other side, besides that means you get the privilege of crossing the Ponte Vecchio twice a day at least :). We thought there was a rooftop bar but was told that was in the sister hotel Hotel Continental on the other side of the bridge [from here you can get the uninterrupted view of the Duoma, Palazzo Vecchio and the Ponte Vecchio]. Anyway I disgressed. On the whole we had a very pleasant stay at the Lungarno Hotel, it was conveniently located, great breakfast, nice view of the river and great and pleasant service from all the staff in the hotel. I strongly recommend this hotel.
