“Warm and friendly and beautiful interior decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2007

My husband and myself were part of a large group there for a medical conference. The hotel is beautifully decorated with paintings on the ceiling, nice landscaping and the room is spacious as well. It's unique in the sense that it has a history to it. Apparently it was built for the King's wife/mistress. It's a family-run hotel, and Anna, the owner of the hotel is a warm and friendly person who made all of us feel at home although we were 10,000 km away from home. The good thing about the hotel is that it is centrally located along the river, not far from the pointe vecchio. You are easilly accessible to the 24-hour kebab shops for late nite snacks. Had a great and enjoyable stay in florence and hotel principe contributed to it as well. Thanks Anna, Giovanna, Giuliano and Beatrice for making our stay in Florence/ Firenze a wonderful one.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2006

My husband and I booked the hotel direct for two nights having read a positive review in the Cadogan Guide.
We were expecting a pleasant stay but thought perhaps the service would be a little impersonal as in most city hotels.
We were wrong.
The hotel is very comfortable, the breakfast first rate- a really good choice ,and courteously served. My husband's omelette was cooked to order and he was asked if he would like prosciutto with it.!!
The reception staff could not have been more helpful and friendly and we were lucky enough to meet the delightful owner who told us the story of this historic building.
Thoroughly recommended

We loved this hotel! It was so charming! The staff was excellent. The concierge recommended some fabulous restaurants!! Our room had a great view of the river and beautiful Florence!! I would definitely stay there again. The location was good, we were able to walk everywhere.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2005

My husband and I have been to Florence several times but this was our first stay at the Principe, directly across from the Arno River. The staff was very pleasant and helpful with suggestions and directions. We stayed in a 2 room suite for a very good rate, with a private balcony and an unobstructed view of the Arno River. The rooms were immaculate and breakfast was good. It's the 3rd bridge down from the Ponte Vecchio so it's about a 10 min. walk to the center of the historic area. This is the only reason I gave it a rating of 4 instead of 5.
